I use a stylus all the time and love it! i haven't touched my screen with my fingers in a long time! I just hate the finger prints on my screen. I have the little bright colored ones from Walgreens placed in all the right spots around my house, 3 in my vehicle, a couple of spares at work and a custom sylus/pen combination I got off Etsy that I carry in my pocket every time I leave the house! If the screen is "clean" they just slide across the screen so easy! I use the Swype keyboard and text like a champ, which I never did using my fingers! Just my 2 cents worth!
