    I've been looking for a good iPhone stylus and Gizmodo had an article about this one, so I'm thinking about getting this one. What do you all think http://www.tenonedesign.com/sketch.php

    I think it looks great, and it seems cheap considering there aren't many iPhone styluses out.

    I'm worried about using a stylus because:
    1. I'm worried it could scratch up the screen
    2. It looks like you need to hold the stylus nearly completely vertical to actually use it. As far as I know, you can't hold it at much of an angle (which really sucks).

    Can someone explain to me why you would actually need a stylus for the iPhone :confused:...

    They give precision when using things like drawing apps. That's really the only use I can think of.

    There are a few styluses out there, and as far as I've researched this one is (or one of) the best.

    1. The iPhone and iPod touch screens are made out of optical quality glass (at least as of June 2007), a soft tip stylus is very unlikely to even leave mark.

    2. It works at a comfortable angle, the soft tip is thick enough that it conforms to the screen when the stylus is tilted.

    Check out this review of three different styluses for the iPhone:

    Yes. Gaming is my main issue. I would like to have something to be able to draw good maps in Line Rider, among other things. I have an issue where I have zig-zag lines everywhere I have to stop, and I saw this, and wondered if you all had it/what you thought about it.
