    Love the color of my purple stylus! It works great with my Nook

    Love the color of my purple stylus! It works great with my Nook Tablet even with the protective anti-glare film on it. Noticed it as sensitive when turning pages while reading a book because at times, it turned two pages instead of just one. The clip attached to it is an added bonus; easy to hook it onto my cover so I know just where it is! Definitely an item to have to avoid any finger smudges too.

    Poor Design

    I bought this stylus for use with my Nook Color. The tip came off within the first 5 minutes and I've spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get it back on - impossible! Very disappointed!

    This does work very well, regardless of color. I really wish there was a way to change the tip out. After about 5 or six months, the tip gets "squishy". It starts needing multiple, or more pressure for presses.

    I would think that for $20, there would be a replacement tip available. This stylus is by no means the only one that does this, nor is it the most expensive with a limited lifetime. It would be so easy, it seems, to swap out the tip.

    So, you get an excellent stylus, that feels good (matte finish) and stays put in your hand. For around six months.

    I bought this at the beginning of summer and it worked great until about a month ago and the clip broke off that you attach it to your cover with and that wouldn't have been to terrible but the rubber tip came off a couple of days age:( Pretty disappointed at this point!!

    I purchased the purple stylus recently on-line for my color nook

    I purchased the purple stylus recently on-line for my color nook. I received it today. Started using it for playing a word search game that my fingers were to fat for. I am disappointed in how it worked. To get it to work on some of my games I have to press hard and even then it doesn't always work properly. I have a anti-glare screen saver on my nook and wonder if that maybe part of the problem. It works well for other things like opening or closing things and typing, but not as well for when you need to slide it. I would recommend that you read all of the reviews before buying this product.

    This is a great product for people that have concerns using their fingers to key in, turn pages, etc. My COMPLAINT is that I am now on my third pen. The pen always breaks in the same spot, @ the clip. Isn't this a product malfunction?

    Be careful with this stylus. I am on my second one. I had to return the first one because the curve broke off. the second one is about ready
    to break. I ended out purchasing a rocket fish stylus that has a metal clip and it works great.

    Almost immediately after opening/using the product the tip fell off and it is impossible to get back on. Don't buy this product - it is a waste of money. Look for something more substantial, this one is expensive junk.

    Love the stylus, the length, color options, how it feels in my hand when I use it... the big "but", and it was a huge "but" for me, is that it's too fragile.  The clip of mine broke off within days of buying it.  Really PMO!

    Read reviews before buying, works great and I am gentle on the clip part so it doesn't break. It is a bit sensitive on some things. Only other thing  I found is that if you press too hard (like a child was using mine) the plastic holding the tip can scratch your screen or in my case the screen cover so it was no big deal. Not ideal for rough use/kids.

    I am the type of gal who likes her stylus to match her cover. This one works perfectly. It has a very smooth glide, making typing or turning pages feel like silk. This one feels good in the hand, and the new surface of the tip is soft, not rubber like the old ones. I love the new clip feature. Attach it to your cover and you are ready to go. I might also add, it makes playing games so much more effortless. Worth the extra money.

    I was debating about picking one of these up, but I decided to try it out. I like the feel of the stylus in my hand, and it works rather well with my Nook. However, there are still some gestures that require your fingers. The nice thing about the stylus is that its to access certain touch screen features that the tip of my finger can't work. The product also work well with other touch screen devices as well.
