Yes, it's a good idea to use a stylus on your touchscreen, to avoid all those greasy marks and to point with a little more precision than I can achieve with my blobby fingers.
Yes, it's a decently made stylus, with a metal body and clip, and a soft rubber tip at the business end - looks smart and works perfectly well.
Why is it £12.99 though ??....... now if it came with replaceable rubber tips I might see the point !
I bought it because it went with the Kindle Fire HD and the black Kindle case I bought, but actually I could just have used my cheap and cheerful Blackberry Torch plastic stylus (£1.95 for two on Amazon) which also has an integral clip to attach to the Kindle cover/your shirt pocket

The clip was much too tight for putting into the shirt pocket and made of brittle metal, which broke when I tried gently to loosen it: poor construction and design.Not value for money, best part of £10.
Best avoided.
(Would have returned it to Amazon, but I'd broken the clip.)

this stylus has the look of a pen, but certainly not worth the money. It could quite easily be priced under £5.00.
Size is 4.5 inches, has a soft sponginess rounded bottom and has a sliver looking clip, which is handy. The top resembles the push down look a like top of a pen, so it may can be used to clip to a pocket or on the side of the case of a kindle.
This item will also work on a touch screen mobile phone, so if one has over sized fingers, then please go ahead, use this for both items, it was well.
However the price is just unreasonable. If it did not have any other use then I would never have bought it. For a man this may be just the thing for him, but ladies who do not have greasy fingers, or can use her moblie satisfactory then please think twice before you purchase this item.Amazon Kindle Fire HD Standing Leather Cover, Onyx Black (will only fit Kindle Fire HD)

I have been using this stylus for a couple of days now with the new Kindle Fire. It takes a while to get used to the squishy end of the pen; without care it is easy to not press hard enough when 'sweeping' from one side to another to change pages, but you become used to the pressure needed after several operations. Always reliable with 'touching' operation to activate a keyboard key etc. Please note that the end of the stylus is not a point, more a swab.

Although it's a nice idea to keep the screen clear of smudges, you'll still have to use your fingers for multi-point actions such as zooming in or out.

All-in-all, for general use it serves me best to use this stylus rather than my sausage-fingers.

Edit: I have removed two stars because despite storing it as recommended (on the outside of the spine), when I came to use it today the stylus was at the bottom of my work bag, with a bent clip left inside the official case (maybe my fault - Kindle fire was in a courier-type bag alongside a KK3, 3DSXL, wallet, keys and a high-viz vest) - when I tried to straighten it, it snapped off.

I believe it should be suitable for use with the official case.

Still a good device, but please keep the stylus separate from the Kindle.

There is no doubt that this product is very good for purpose. However, it does seem to be quite expensive when compared to other similar products.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I recently bought a Griffin GC35027 Stylus Tip for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch - Black for use on my Google Nexus 7 tablet and was very pleased with it, despite a few minor niggles, and since using it have found that my tablet looks a lot cleaner as I now touch the screen with my fingers a lot less. On receipt, this Marware stylus comes in a slim box which announces it is for tablets and smartphones, with no specific mention of the Kindle Fire, so don't let Amazon's description put you off!

The stylus itself is quite small, a little shorter than a standard ballpoint pen, and features a clip for attaching the stylus to a pocket or a tablet / phone case. That's basically it. The business end of the stylus is a soft rubbery bump and this has no protection, so could end up splitting or being torn if you aren't careful. There are no replacement tips, and I doubt they can be bought. The end closest to the clip is simply a metal cap, not an additional tip as I'd hoped.

Does it work? Yes, and just as well as the Griffin stylus I use. If you find it hard to type on a touchscreen device with your fingers you may find a stylus easier to use, and it may provide more sensitivity if you are playing a game or trying to draw for example, but the tip is fairly bulbous and when I fired up a sketch app on my tablet and had a scribble I found that when I thought I was drawing in one area the stylus was actually detected a few pixels away, the same as with my Griffin stylus. If only these things had interchangeable tips for improved precision. Anyway, the stylus doesn't scratch the screen and won't leave greasy fingermarks.
