It's not the cheapest thing on the market but seemed to have good reviews - I got it in good time - the seller cannot be faulted.
The item itelf only works if you hold it perpendicular to the screen and press quite hard. Plus the end of it is quite thick, not the thinner stylus shape I was hoping for for more accuracy. You can't really hold it like a pen to draw with as, I don't know about you but bolt upright is not the angle my hand holds a pen at!
I don't know if what I was hoping for even exists, but I can't see me using this that much so that's £18 down the swanny. I'll keep it in case I can't use my fingers for any reason (!!!) Maybe I could hold it in my mouth? ;-)
This works every time but you have to be very specific about the way that you use it. The tip has to be quite firmly pressed on to the surface of your iPad iPhone to make a connection and draw a line or activate and icon. As the tip is made of a sqaushy spnge like material the accuracy is not brilliant and putting two dots in the same place is pretty much impossible - so drawing is pretty much out. For use as a proto-mouse pointing device its OK but accuracy and the firmness of the press you have to apply mean that with an iPad on a stand you sometimes end up pushing it over...not that helpful.
Design wise its OK - I don't understand why they have to make them so small - its not like people are not used to carrying full size pens around. There is a lanyard ring and similar to the Griffin no indication as to whether you are suppsed to ear this as a fashion accessory or just have it on your key ring - neither would be particularly convenient or helpful.
The tip is basically horrible - it looks like an old sponge that has been dipped in a some mucky paint - when I got mine out of the packet I thought that the tip had rotted. It does not seem very robust and give the pressure that you are obliged to apply to make this work I do not hold out too much hope for this having much stamina.
So a small improvment on the Griffin based on tip size and contact reliability but overall for the price this is still a resounding don't bother unless you are realy desperate.
I find the tip a bit too soft but it seems a common feature of even more expensive products, so I can't consider it a down side of this one.
nice design: I like it very much after months of use I can confirm it's worth buying it.
