    Works even BETTER on NOOK Color/NOOK Tablet!

    I bought this for my NOOK Tablet and it works like a charm! It has a soft tip that glides very smoothly on the screen. No more finger prints on the screen for me!

    Works great with Nook Tablet

    This works really well with the Nook Tablet. I like the style of it and that it is lightweight. It glides smoothly across the screen, with or without screen protectors. As others have stated sometimes the contact "skips", but I think that is true with any of these things as well as with your finger touch, so I don't consider that a flaw. I like to use the clip to fasten it inside the binding of my Nook Tablet covers, however, it is a VERY tight squeeze as the inside tablet clip rubs on the stylus. It seems to fit a bit better on my canvas case than on my leather one, so you may want to test this before deciding on a case. I wish either the cases or the stylus would be slightly redesigned to function a bit better together. But, despite a few minor complaints with accessories, I absolutely LOVE my Nook Tablet. So much so that besides my own, I have bought 3 additional Nook Tablets and 2 Nook Colors, plus accessories for each one, for gifts for family members! That's a total of 6...and counting!

    Wonderful!

    I have the Nook Color and I wasn't sure how/if it would work for this. I called customer service and asked if is was recommended for the Nook Color. The rep didn't sound very sure of whether it would or wouldn't, so she said 'sure'. I took a chance and purchased this and it works fine. My daughter used it and fell in love with it so I ended up giving it to her and have ordered another one for myself.

    Don't buy a cheap one!

    My son bought me a cheap stylus for Christmas and it would not work with the screen protector. This one works great! The tip is soft and I'm not worried about scratching the screen.

    I highly recommend this.

    The Vara Stylus also has a hook that works great to attach it to my cover. Only draw back is the hook, being plastic, could break if you are not careful.

    Right To the Point!

    Just got this stylus this week and just love it. I really don't like a lot of finger prints on my screen, it just looks messy. This is a blessing to have. Easy to glide across the screen even if you have a screen protector on your NOOK. I use this on my NOOK Tablet and it works fine. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has big fingers tips.

    Fabulous for nook Tablet!

    I read the reviews online for this stylus before purchasing it in store, I'm glad I did! It's perfect for games and web browsing. It glides smoothly and it's ideal for everyday navigating on your Tablet too. Definitely recommend. As for people telling you to buy one cheaper somewhere else... this one is made specifically for your nook screen.. it has a cushy bubble at the end for contact with the screen. Regular stylus are hard plastic. But hey, if you want scratches on your screen.... by all means buy the cheap alternative!

    Works great!!

    This is great for girls with long nails (or people with chubby fingers, too, I guess). It works so well and clips right onto my case. I'm ecstatic!! Great accessory!!

    Doesn't always work

    Sometimes you have to press your screen multiple times for a result. It does help hitting the small buttons or links. It helps you be more precise, but the downside is sometimes the nook doesn't register the touch.

    Vara Stylus (bought for the Nook Tablet)

    I was quite pleased with this stylus for playing games for about three months. Days after my three-anniversary with this stylus the clip that secures it within the Nook broke clean off. A waste of $20.

    Not Satisfied

    I look the Nook Color! Received it this past Christmas. Received the Vara Stylus for Mother's Day. Nice feel and nice length. However, it did not work well for all apps. I had to press too hard to get it to work. I do have a protective cover so I do not know if that contributed to having to press so hard. The end was soft but it is quite large. The stylus would not work well at all with my Word App which I really enjoy. As a result, I returned it. Hopefully, with time and technology, a more suitable stylus will be designed.

    I'm glad I got it, it works great. The only change I would make

    I'm glad I got it, it works great. The only change I would make is for a little smaller tip. Other than that, I like it.
