    Better than some others, but still not perfect for prose., March 27, 2011

    Here’s what I found after trying a multitude of styluses (or is it styli?) after buying an iPad 2. I wanted to use an iPad as a sketch book and the pad like it’s name…and go digital rather than filling up pad after pad. So the perfect stylus has to feel like a pen and work well enough on the screen to give the tactile feel of drawing or prose on paper.

    I learned that styluses tips are of 2 main types – fuzzy fabric and rubber – with some additional quirky ones made of metal (O-Stylus) or even sausage (supposed to work like your finger!).
    –Fabric tips:
    Pogo stylus- also used by Apple Geniuses – have a fabric tip that’s fantastic for typing or selecting or making a bet even but not so excellent for prose or sketching anything more complex than a smiley face.
    Sock Stylus – There is a seller on etsy who is selling sock styluses with conductive fabric “sock” stretched over a wooden quill which has been sawed off for the perfect length. I found that stylus a small less sensitive than the Targus and you have to hold it at a certain angle for best results. But, if you’re prose pages worth of notes on iPad then it tends to make the hand less tired than the Targus as Targus has a squishy rubber tip that can cause some fatigue.

    There are other fuzzy fabric styluses out there sold by small stores – like the ones by the guy who has been advertising on all Mac forums and posting pictures of his store in competitors’ item images. They claim that they have the best yet but I haven’t tried those yet.
    –Rubber tips:
    The Targus in question has a rubber tip. Please check my uploaded pic for size comparison against some other styluses.

    The rubber tip on this stylus looks pretty thick but is still thinner than our fingers. The problem is that it does block the view when prose or sketching just like our finger. There is also another 2nd gen ACase that has tried to eliminate some of that by making a longer stylus and a thinner and longer rubber tip but failed to deliver as the thinner tip had to be held at certain angles to write well and became more squishy and less natural.

    This Targus has been the best of the 4-5 styluses I tried so far (refer to the pic) by and large as it is the most responsive of all and has a matte end stem rather than ACase’s smooth end which makes it a small less slippery to hold. The iPad 2 is already so slinky, I don’t want to agonize about dropping the stylus too!! It performed well on Penultimate and UPad prose apps and SketchBook Express the sketching app and captured light strokes as well as the heavier strokes. The performance was a lot better than the Acase 2nd Generation Apple iPad / iPhone / iPod Capacitive Stylus (Jet Black) Newest Modeland a shade better than the Acase 2 in 1 Stylus + Pen for Apple iPad 16GB, 32GB, 64GB WiFi + 3G, iPad 2, iPhone, iPod, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy, BlackBerry Playbook (Black). And don’t even bother trying the really cheap ones 3 Pack (Red + Black + Silver) of Complete Touch Screen Stylus Pen for Apple iPod Touch 2nd 3rd 4th Gen, iPhone 3G 3GS 4th Gen Generation, they’re perhaps ok for tapping a small but not for prose or sketching. Although some people have suggested on forums that roughing up the rubber tip of the cheap styluses with a sandpaper makes them work better.

    I’ve also heard excellent things about the Boxwave and Alupen but haven’t veteran them so I can’t say if they’re better than Targus.

    So there you have it, Targus was the winner in prose and sketching on iPad but still not the perfect stylus as it is not as responsive as I would like. I’m still looking for that perfect stylus.

    I have been using a Pogo Sketch for quite some time and I can authenticate you that the Targus stylus beats the Pogo and every other stylus hands down! In fact, I recently was employed by one of the largest wireless carriers in their marketing department and worked closely with the person responsible for buying all accessories that are sold in our stores. She had veteran and trialed dozens of styluses a d had determined that pogo was the best available stylus at the time. Last month, I visited her and showed her the Targus stylus. Like me, she was blown away. She is now going to contact Targus for samples to place through their tests. It works fantastic with iPhone and iPad — and especially fantastic with Penultimate. It is high-quality and feels fantastic in my hand. It is as thick as a normal ballpoint pen, and the clip is made of sturdy metal (not cheap plastic like the Pogo). The tip is soft rubber, but not at all sticky like some other inferior rubber styluses). Using this on an ipad is so silky smooth and a pleasure to use. Buy this, you will not be disappointed!!

    Make sure you are buying and shipping from Amazon, June 13, 2011

    Buyer beware! Genuine Targus products work well and are a excellent value so this is not a ding on Targus, didn’t really want the product to have one star but wanted future buyers to be precise. Recently I buy two of these for my wife and myself from Amazon and was surprised to find out they were really shipping thru one of their retailers called Asecshop all the way from Hong Kong. They were in bubble wrap in a small manila envelope and no the Targus name was not on anything including the product. After a recent trip to to a huge box store who sells genuine Targus bits and pieces my suspicions were confirmed, what I received was in deed counterfeit. When my bits and pieces arrived looking like something you would expect to hear from ebay not Amazon. I left a similar statement on the Asecshop feedback page as well and I was not alone with this type of behavior, lots of folks complaining about counterfeit goods life sold and described as the original article. look similar to Targus in shape but they are clearly not genuine Targus. I have reported this to Amazon and the are supposedly looking in to it, I hope they right this and do a better job of setting up there retailers in the future. ebay use to be reputable too until they started letting everyone sell all their knock off products on there, now you never know what you are going to get. Just my two cents, but I will only buy products in the future that ship directly from Amazon”s Distribution Centers. One terrible apple…….
