Just got one in the mail and ran it through a few games. It's an aluminum stylus that's right at 3.5 inches long and .25 inches in diameter. The tip is a soft foam type that slides nicely over my iPod touch with a screen protector. It does take a small amount more pressure than your finger to activate but I think it would still be comfortable to use over long peroids of time. I tried the stylus out with Enigmo, Besiegement, Fieldrunners, LineRider, Pakoon3, Trace and Virtual Villagers. Placing towers in Besiegement is spot on now. The lines I draw in LineRider and Trace no longer look like a grade schooler made them. Aiming the tools in Enigmo is so much easier and accurate. Zombie Invasion is great with the stylus also. I didn't have any problems with my drawing or taps not being recognized. I did some research before buying this stylus and all of the reviews I saw online picked this model over the others. Right now I am loving the stylus but I will report back in a day or so to let you know if my opinion changes.
