Back in the day when touchscreen devices were not finger-friendly, a stylus was a must have accessory. Today, styluses have two main uses: note taking and drawing. Like pens and pencils, styluses come in all manner of shapes and sizes, but one thing holds true with today's styluses... If you want a stylus with a [...]

Stilo stylus review
