    Stylus skips on screen?

    Hey all,

    i have an Asus transformer TF300T, but i actually need help with my other tablet. (Sry, I know its not in the right section) I just bought an Insignia Flex 10.1 android tablet from Best buy. It seems to work great with my finger. However, when i use my stylus it doesnt detect it very well. When drawing or writing, it "skips" on the screen. Can someone help me with this? Maybe theres a certain stylus i need.

    Thanks!

    Hey VetteGoFast, this really should be in the Off Topic section since it doesn't pertain to an Asus product, so I'll move it for you. You never mention what type of stylus you are using, but I've found that whatever type you use, it's never as effective as your finger! If it's the bulbous hollow rubber type, the most prevalent, the bigger the tip, the better the sensitivity. I don't know exactly how much it is skipping, but it may just be the "nature of the beast!" Here's a question for you, does the stylus work a lot better on your TF300?

    thanks for moving it.

    Yes it does work better on my 300. I will probably call Insignia support to see what they say. Otherwise i was think of getting one of these. What do you think?

    I haven't tried this one, but it seems similar to the Adonit Jot, whic I do have. I personally am not crazy about this type because of the plastic to glass sound it makes. I'm sure you've read the reviews, which are all over the place, from doesn't work to works great. If you haven't tried this type, I'd say give it a try and see what you think. If you do, make sure to report back and tell us what you think.

    Well i just ordered a Dagi P507. We'll see what that does but the dialectic mesh ones do look intriguing. I'm also gonna take it back to best buy this weekend and let them look at it. Thanks for the help

    Have in mind that these presicion-nib-plastic-dick styli require a lot of attention NOT to get dirt under the disk. I changed my screen protector because it had tons of scratches in the area where swype lets you handwrite by default.
    Also, they aren't so good for every day use, such as surfing, or reading (turning pages or photos). For such use, a quite good solution is the caseen one (it is the only i recall now, that's why i mention it 1st), or any similar (search the forum, you'll find many). (Another option opposed to rubber ones, is a like-chained-nib stylus with hard nib, which i cannot remember how it's called).
    Also, try applying more force at the stylus.
