Question: Stylus yes or stylus no?

I've pretty well gotten over the learning curve on my HD+. Accidently setting "Enable accessability - Currently in BETA" was a real exciting time. Hint: don't do it until you are very familiar with the device.

 

Anyway, I have notoriously fat fingers. I'm getting along though often I try to set a bookmark and get the setting menu and vice versa. I do have a couple of questions.

 

a. Should I get a stylus? If so, which?

 

b. Where do you store it when you aren't using it? I have the HD+ Composition Cover which is very cool. It would have been nice if they'd have put a stylus sleeve in the spine though.

 

With the HD+, I've now maxed out my account with 5. Guess we like them!

Re: Question: Stylus yes or stylus no?

I have the HD+, and the stylus, don't use it much except for word search, but my friend has really big fingers and he uses his all the time for everything, especially when typing. I would only use the B&N one, on another post some one told how they used an off brand one and it scratched the screen.

Any capacitive stylus will work. Some brands I have used are Boxwave, Vertex, Amazon Basics. Styli with sturdy metal clips can be fastened to the cover. Some have a lariat with a plastic part that fits into the headphone jack for storage, some have both.

I use a stylus almost exclusively.  More accurrate and keeps the screen cleaner.  I have an ikross with a built-in pen, only about $10.

Re: Question: Stylus yes or stylus no?

After having the tips come off of two mid priced (Incipio) versions, I picked up one today at Dollar Tree for, not surprisingy, S1 - it has a clip and includes a ballpoint pen. Can't say how long it will last, but it works well and is no great loss if you decide you don' like them.

Thanks for all the advice and comments. Looks like a stylus is the order of the day. Clever idea about using the headphone jack as a tether point. Now to find that one.
