Wasn't Steve Job's adamantly against the stylus? Didn't Apple design the iPhone and iPad to be so intuitive that children with finger-painting abilities could use them? Well, yes, but it seems that the stylus is becoming more and more necessary as note-taking and drawing apps become popular and higher-level functionality is developing.
Those of us with petite, pointy fingers can hit the most minute icon on the iPhone. But there are some of us who still prefer one degree of separation between us and the screen (chronic users of hand cream, you know who you are). There are many reasons to use a stylus and the promotional products industry has whole heartedly jumped on the bandwagon.
Pros of the stylus pen:
- Use the touch screen keyboard more quickly
- Draw on the touch screen with more accuracy
- Project a more professional appearance when using a tablet
- Use of stylus will keep screen cleaner
- In general, it is easier to interact with some applications with a stylus than with a finger
- Relatively inexpensive, yet high value perception
