    Are there any styluses out there, which glide over the screen?

    The Griffin stylus currently in use, causes a high amount of friction when handwriting notes. My wrist gets tired after writing half a page!

    So apart from the obvious comment of doing work-out, how would one go about of writing lightly?

    Take a look at StylusRus. It glides softly over the screen and needs a very light touch to work. There customer service is outstanding and they have a large variety. Do a search here and you will see lots of great reviews.

    I order an Stylus R Us a couple days ago. Have not received it yet but the online reviews were good.

    Boxwave Stylus

    I got a few from Boxwave and I'm happy with them.

    May I ask why you bought a few. Do they wear off so fast, that they need replacing?

    I received the Stylus R Us ("SRU") stylus yesterday and I am very surprised at how well this stylus works. Granted I have only tried the Pogo Sketch and the SRU, so I can not compare to others mentioned in this thread. With the Pogo you really had to use some pressure on the screen to activate or respond. With the Stylus R Us there is absolutely no pressure required. I have tried touching the screen as softly as I could and the stylus responds. The other major difference is the Pogo does not "glide" across the screen and does not feel like a true writing instrument. With the SRU this is not the case, it glides very nicely across the screen with no friction.

    I use Notes Plus for taking handwritten notes in meetings and using the Pogo my hand would get tired very quickly due to the friction. The SRU writes very nicely.

    Lots of styles and options available. I got one of the telescoping versions, the Entrepreneur. Check them out at http://www.beststylus.com.

    I will second Stylus R Us. I use a Roger iWand. I also have a Targus (which from what I understand the Boxwave, Targus, and Griffin and are all just re-branded versions of the same stylus). The thing is light as a feather-glides smoothly, not weary to use. I haven't touched the Targus since getting the Stylus R Us.
