I am looking for best stylus for ipad. Any idea? Bamboo stylus?
I've had the bamboo for about 4 months, use it every day. I would def. recommend buying extra tips. Mine wore out pretty quick.
I found this article helpful: The best stylus for iPad: we review the hits and misses | The Verge
Not that I have a lot of stylus choices where I am, but it was good to get an idea of what works well and what doesn't.
Thanks. Does apple retail store sell the stylus pens?
What is the lifetime of your stylus pen's tip?
About the Apple store -- I'd just browse over there and have a look.
Hey J, my tip lasted about 3 months. Gf bought a cheaper one and hers lasted about the same. A little tip I read somewhere(and it worked) roll up a piece of tissue and put in the inside of the tip it made the second tip last a month and a half longer.
Could someone explain what is so special about Bamboo's stylus please? I have been using the first of five stylus pens that I bought from Amazon 2months ago for Â£4.50 ie 90p each. It did take 2weeks for them to arrive but then they did come from Hong Kong p and p free.
Admittedly you can't drag them too hard across the iPad's screen ( I have a screen protector applied) or the tip can fall off but is easily refitted. The pop up add I see with this thread shows Bamboos to be about Â£29 upwards so I guess there is something more special about them....is there?
Most styluses are either fiber-tipped or rubber-tipped, but there is an unusual third type whose name escapes me at the moment.
Anyway, I find the fiber-tipped ones like those made by iFaraday superior for taking notes because the tip glides with greater ease on the screen than rubber-tipped ones I've tried
Edit: The Adonit Jot styluses were the ones I couldn't remember before. Other forum members have discussed them in other stylus threads.
I got this one. Its been little over a month but so far happy with its performance. My only complaint is, its pretty thin. I would have preferred as thick as BIC pens at least.
Occasionally, they sell it for free or 99c. Shipping is about $5 for continental US.
