After I tried the Bamboo, Amazon Basic, and Cosmonaut Stylus I like the Amazon Basic. First of all it is small enough to fit inside the case so you will not misplace it. Also, the tip does not make it hard to write like some of the other stylus. My last reason is that it feels like a pencil in my hand so it is easier to write with! The only thing I do not like about any of the stylus is tap typing I think it is harder with the stylus than it is with your fingers.
I agree about typing with them as that is hard and not very useful. I only think students might need a stylus when they are doing Math although I can draw pretty well with my finger. What do you think?
