Why use a stylus?

I am with IrixGuy. I use a stylus because I don’t like messing up my screen! He is also right – if you use a stylus then you will enjoy it a whole lot more than you thought you would. IrixGuy covers the benefits of using a stylus well. He also allows you to understand that expensive is not necessarily better. I have found some cheap ones to be as good as ,and sometimes more effective than, my expensive one. One of my cheaper ones is a pen as well so that can be handy at times. I need to use a stylus, actually, and this is one of the things IrixGuy doesn’t cover. I have arthritis. On a bad day everyone is going to get rubbish text messages from me on my phone or ridiculous emails. On a bad day it is too much bother to fix the errors. Pressing and swiping can hurt. A stylus will help and I can use my phone and tablet far more effectively and more comfortably. I am using my hand eye co ordination. Some days my fingers just don’t really respond properly to direct surface work. The opposite is true on my computer. A keyboard is mightier than the pen for me because I can write faster and more effectively. With a stylus I can be faster, more accurate and get better detail where I need to. I am a classic klutz when I have to try and press on links with my fingers. I can’t do what students do and type with my thumbs because they would become inflamed. Students laugh when they see me trying to type on a flat screen but they are suitably impressed with my iPad set up which has a really nice keyboard and stylus. To them a stylus is the ultimate in poshness! I was able to try a stylus before I actually bought one. I think that is important. You have to be able to play around with one and see if it suits you and your needs. You also need a range. Android tablets and phones allow a broader range of styluses. iPads can be a bit picky but that is what you need to know. I always carry one with my phone incase I need it. Styluses keep the surface cleaner too and so they help protect you from all the germs I have blogged about which gather on glass surfaces when you use your fingers. IrixGuy also reminds you that sometimes you need to check your fingers and your stylus to make sure you have not picked up anything with which you can scratch a screen if you are in an area which might have “bits”. I am waiting for the day where fineline styluses will be the go. That will really increase tablet and smartphone options.
