Android tablets are becoming popular these days but does it have what it takes to beat the Ipad? I can’t answer that but for me it’s just a matter of preference. Both devices are great but they also have strengths and weaknesses. One thing that I like about these devices is their capacitive touch screens where it reacts perfectly with your fingers or any part of your body. Unlike resistive screens it does not require pressure to function. It doesn’t work if you use non electric conductor materials like plastic and rubber. That’s why you cannot just use any stylus for these devices; it has to be capacitive stylus.
There is no special android tablet stylus, any capacitive stylus can work on any capacitive touch screens. So if you are looking for android tablet stylus you can also look for capacitive stylus as well. All ipad stylus will work on any android tablet stylus as long as it uses capacitive touch screen.
How does capacitive stylus work?
The human body is an electrical conductor that when touching the screen it creates a distortion of the screen’s electrostatic field which is then measured as change in capacitance. The capacitive stylus serves as conductor and transfers static electricity from your hands to the touch screen.
What are the benefits of using Capacitive Stylus?
Aside from the fact that it is more accurate to point on your android devices than your fingers, the capacitive stylus is also used by artists when sketching on autodesk or any other sketching apps. If you need super fine stylus you might want to consider this diy capacitive stylus by kobausks.
