    From the first day forward I found the hands and fingers of a 72 year old too unsteady for the iPad. Someone loaned me a Pogo (I guess that is what it is called) and I found I have the control needed.

    Is there one of these devices that is to be preferred over another. I need to return the loaner and would like to buy perhaps several so as to have a spare.

    Anyone out there with some suggestions

    I personally like the Boxwave stylus better. You can get it in bricks & mortar stores, but I got my two at Amazon for about $18 (each).

    I've used both and I like the tip of the Boxwave better. Of course, YMMV.

    I have the Pogo too and find it works great on the iPad and iPod. I will have to look at the Boxwave one.

    I tried the pogo and then returned it.
    I then bought the Targus at Best Buy and like it a lot.
    I ordered two from Igear today but haven't received them yet. I figured
    For $6.99 I could give it a try so that I can leave one in the office

    I'm on my third iteration of styluses for the iPad.

    The current one is an OEM of the Targus ( since you can get it under several names ) and I'm quite certain this would stay :)

    So far this has the best response, feel, etc.

    I have both the pogo and the bestbuy Targus. Hands down I like the Targus the best out of all of them I have tried.

    I have both the pogo and targus, and the targus is much better in my opinion

    Bestbuy Canada doesn't seem to sell the Targus stylus, but they have a "Griffin" stylus that (from the picture) looks a lot like the US Targus one. I'll give it a try since some mentioned it is better than the Pogo

    Here you go Jerliz

    I bought this at Best Buy for US$17.99. It is so much easier than fingers!

    Definitely agree the Targus bought in Best Buy are the best ones..excellent feel, very precise and solid.

    Perfect choice

    If youwant one that is thin and precise (for sketching and writing) then the Dagi stylus is pretty good!

    I have the targus from best buy as well. Unfortunately it's only 3 weeks old and the rubber tip has developed a tear. Not sure if it's just a defect or what. I bought another one cause I liked the feel so much. If this one doesn't last longer than 3 weeks, I'll be rather disappointed :)

    THIS is by far the best stylus option for the iPad. :eek:

    I Was Wondering How Long It Would Last...

    I hope mine last longer than three weeks! I like this stylus because it doesn't leave finger prints. The sausage stylus looks intriguing but I can't imagine using them in a staff meeting with my iPad and still keep any respect I might still have with my totally intel/microsoft is the only business solution oriented colleagues.

    Thanks all, and especially MattIM for the screen shot. Been to Best-Buy three times and each time they tell me on the truck tomorrow. Ho-Hum! Typical for Best Buy. Some times I wonder how they stay in business.

    Fingers are good, but in this case not for shaky hands

    I would say take it back. Three weeks is ridiculous! Best Buy has beat me out of so much money with reneging on their warranties, I say if it doesn't hold up, especially in such a sort time, get your money back or a replacement
