    I have tried the Pogo and Stylu-R-Us and between the two there is no comparison. SRU is the clear winner. You barely have to touch the screen, it requires no pressure to activate or swipe the screen. Search you tube for demos.

    There have been a lot of discussions of this topic in this subforum. You might want to do a search. You will find a lot of info.

    I have tested five or six, and I find thus far that my newly received iFaraday is the pick of the litter! That said, I also must confess that I am always enthusiastic about a new one. When I have used it for a while, I will post more details. One very nice feature is that it is six inches long, while most others are too short. And it seems to be best for general use, including note taking by handwriting.

    Good luck!

    P.S. The Stylus-R-Us that Svenster likes is also a good one, but for me it as too hard to write with the extremely light touch required to keep its tip fibers from compressing an ceasing to work. The seller does provide a bit of velcro for "rejuvenating" the tip, but it's a bit of a pain. Of course there are many other fans of that stylus here who will undoubetdly share their experiences with it, so you will have to evaluate our preferences in terms of your own style and writing needs.

    I was wondering how the iFaraday compares with the old fashioned plastic stylus. The best stylus I've found was the HTC - Scribe Digital Pen at best buy but I refuse to pay $80 for a stylus with an old fashioned tip that works on an iPad. I can't wait till they start selling the electromagnetic stylus pens for capacitive touch screens.

    I'm interested in hearing more on these electromagnetic styles as well.

    I got my iFaraday today, only complaint I got is that the firm tip one leaves a black residue wich I'm sure is just a defect and you still have to apply quite a bit of pressure for them to track properly. Still better than the rubber tip ones, just gotta get use to putting more pressure than I'm use to.

    RojasC,

    Sorry I missed seeing your earlier question.

    On the screen smudges---that happened to me too. I think Rustle (the iFaraday guy) got hold of a bad batch of tip material. He replaced them for me for free. You might want to email him about it.

    +1. Get in touch with Rustle. I have a firm tip stylus and it does not exhibit this behavior AT ALL. In fact, the iFaraday "glides" across the screen with far less pressure than any other stylus I've used.

    There is no best. All is personal opinion.

    Bamboo stylus is pretty bad, I feel like it's as accurate as using my finger. Just got it and just about to return it.
