    I'd be worried about scratching the screen. I don't have a screen protector.

    I did it with a screen protector. Maybe someone braver than me will try it without one...

    Ideas good, but I wouldn't risk trying without the screen protector!

    Liked the "The Cat in the hat"......

    Why would one want a stylus?

    For sake of preserving my screen, think I'll stay clear from this one.... Very interesting though;)

    As an artist a stylus would be very useful to me.

    It`s more comfortable and familiar drawing/painting in a medium that is already unfamiliar.

    I won`t be trying this without a screen cover though but very interesting.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried?

    Have you ever tried that? It doesn't work because a ds has a contact screen, one that you push, the iPad and iPhone and iPod touch have an electromagnetic screen, so you need something conductive. Trust me, I fix nintendo ds lites. I work at nintendorepairshop.com

    I`ll check out the DS stylus later when my kids get home and post a definitive answer here.

    Just Fyi grayshark is correct.

    A Nintendo DS stylus does not work on the Ipad.

    I just tried it.
