This is the stylus my wife and I use. The description says for Kindle Fire but it works great on my N7.

I also get the 10 pack and they work fine, except that the cats love the attached strings and pull them out and hide them when I do not have my Nexus 7 in its case.

Got a case with a stylus holder so I figured I'd get one. Now I never have to clean the screen and it's more accurate than a finger.

I'm using a Wacom bamboo stylus but, my partner is using a new trent micro-knit one which is just over a fifth of the price of mine and I prefer that - less clacky than mine and just as accurate (the rubber tip isn't that big so I hit the screen with the metal). For those in the UK its this -http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005V11D3Q/ref=wms_ohs_product

I was In Kohl's yesterday and was amazed that they have the nerve to price a SINGLE stylus at $19.99. that very same stylus is part of a package of 5 that you can get from Amazon for about $3. Talk about a rip-off (and I like Kohl's--go there all the time).
