What Color Is Your Stylus?

Another gadget for my iPad and iPhone.

Wonderful daughter, Erica, bought a red stylus and let me try it. I asked if it came in more colors. And it does... black, purple, silver, green and blue. Erica's thought the red would be easier to keep track of.  I liked it so much that she graciously gifted it to me. (After a bit of 'please can I have it'?)

 

Stylus

 Within one day...first time out of the house...darn.. I lost it!

Today I purchased two, one to replace mine and one for Erica. She likes the purple one. This time I will not be losing it. I have tethered it to my iPad case. 

Simple to use, more accurate than my finger, especially dialing numbers and the screen stays much cleaner.

This one is an ifrogz STYLUS  bought at the AT&T store but you can find it for less online and in Walmart. I was surprised that the Apple Store does not carry it.

MArgaert, I got a great deal on a pack of two, one white and one black. I carry one in my computer bag and the other with my iPad. The two were at TJMAx for $9.99. They only had one package so I was the lucky buyer.

silver, although I still tend to use my finger more than anything on my ipad.. what is your favorite app to use the stylus?

Debbie, That is a great deal. Mine were $13.

Mark, I have the silver one now. I like blogging with it. I like it for scrolling and for using it for photos. It is also much easier to do signature than with you finger. Dialing is much more accurate... I don't miss the zero and dial before I finish inputting the numbers.

Mines just plain old silver because it came with anotHer accessory. When I got mine they were selling for 20-30 dollars and I wasn't going to get one unless it was free. Now I would maybe like to get a purple one since the are coming down in price.

Soon they will be silver with red print and it's also a ball point pen.  And my company name and number will beautifully imprinted in red.

Silver but glad to know you can get red and other colors. What fashion statements.

Hi Margaret, my first stylus was silver, the 2nd one was pink and I'm now on my 3rd which has a zebra pattern. The little one loves to play with the bubble and had to investigate twice what could possibly be underneath :-)

I love the purple, too, but since that is Angeline's favorite color I probably wouldn't have it for very long!

Oh and I picked mine up at TJ Maxx I believe for $5.

Good morning Margaret. I don't have a stylus but your post makes me want one. I guess it's just one of those things. Enjoy the day and have a good show.

Jeanne and Ralph, You can now have them in several colors.

Tammy, Now that is a great marketing idea. I saw one that was a pen and a laser pointer along with the stylus.

Helen, Such a fashion statement is right.

Andrea,  Like Debbie you got a real deal. At that price ... Angeline could even have her favorite color.

Sheila, I did not know I wanted one til my daughter bought one. Good talking with you today.

I bought 5 packages of 10. They are the mini stylus, and they have a little stringy thing that pops into the hole on my iPad or my phone so I don't lose them. They look like bullets. And they come in array of colors so I can color match my wardrobe to them. Gold, silver, pink, green, purple, red, blue, black, white. When people tell me they admire my doohickey, I pop it off and give it to them because I have so many more. They're only 10 cents each plus $2.00 to ship.

Hi Margaret, I purchased 2 stylus right after I purchased my iPad. Other than the week I had purchased them, I have never needed them since. Between my keyboard and voice dictation, I think it is covered. I need to find a way to repurpose the little metal sticks that do absolutely nothing, LMAO.

William, They make nice little gifts to others not quite so savvy.

I got a pack of 6 for about $3 from EBay. All different colors. I gave several of them away. Good luck!
