Several companies have recently introduced active styluses with thin points. Two of which I am aware are the Adonit Jot Script and the Lynktec Aspire. One of them (I forget which) calls this system "pixelpoint technology". It apparently uses a mathematical algorithm in an attempt to work around the inherent inaccuracy of the touch screen. Seems like just what the doctor ordered-until you try it out. I bought each of the aforementioned styluses and put them through their paces over a period of time. Both suffer from the same set of problems: 1. Poor inking speed. 2. Offset between the point where the nib contacts the screen and the ink representation. (This can be pretty huge, and it varies between portrait and landscape modes.) 3. Skipped strokes or portions of a stroke, particularly the initial portions. 4. Random power shutoff. The two companies mentioned here do not acknowledge these problems and are even introducing new models, apparently with the same problems. They claim the problems are due to the apps one uses them with, but they occur for all the apps I have tested (quite a few in fact) though the severity does depend upon the app. Adonit claims its stylus is "tuned up" for Penultimate, but it too has severe problems of the type I have discussed. So this note is a caveat: look carefully at user reviews before you waste money on these pricey styluses!
