    Anyone have a great stylus they bought that works well on the FT3 and would like to share where they it bought from?

    Equally - any that are not suitable which you bought would also be welcome, ones to avoid are just as useful sometimes :p

    The best capacitive one I have bought was one from Maplins UK here -> Capacitive Stylus : Accessories : Maplin which works great on the phone, but has too much "give" for the FT3.

    I tried this one:

    SUCK UK - Touch Screen Stylus

    Which is not bad, but can sometimes be too draggy & sticky and not freeflowing enough for me.

    Thank you.

    Amazon sells a 3 pack of stylus like the one on your first link for $3 US. They work great, except, they only really work on a screen protector. Directly on the glass they are kind of sticky so great for accuracy lousy for slide. But with a protector on they are good.

    Originally [being a bit of a tight bastard] I kept the flimsy film on the screen until it was unusable but finally succumbed to the 'luxury' of a pack of three screen savers for

    That's my problem, I can never get them on to my 100% satisfaction, but if I persist then maybe the stylus I have will be good enough, might work better on a protector rather than directly on the glass.

    Oh the quandary over something that is less than a fiver :p

    Oops, didn't realize that was a link, Rabid. Old eyes, I guess. For $2.60, I'll give them a try.

    Earlier in this thread, there are posts about screen protectors. I bought the "Exim Style" Protectors from a Hong Kong seller on eBay. 2 for around $10. The quality is terrific, head and shoulders over the one that came with my FT3. With a little care, you should be able to install them with no bubbles. A bit oversized, but easily trimmed with a scissors. Truly an excellent product.
