Because the multi-touch panel of the iPhone and the iPod touch respectively uses a completely different approach than most of the widely adopted resistive touchscreens available in other mobile devices, you need a different kind of stylus. The screen of the iPhone is designed to take input commands only from person’s fingers (or other body parts), but not from a plastic stylus for instance that is normally used in touchscreen devices. In order to do that the screen of the phone has a lot of built in capacitive sensors that detect a difference in the charge of every place the user touches the screen, but in this way the screen is not pressure sensitive. So in order for you to use a stylus in combination with the iPhone you’ll have to use a specially designed “pens” for this type of multi-touch screen.

Until recently it was quite hard and a bit expensive to get such specially designed stylus, but now they are quite widely available and are being produced in big quantities in China. Actually you can even get a pack of two specially designed stylus for iPhone and iPod touch for less that 6 bucks and you get even free shipping for them, a great deal if you ask me. So if you have bigger fingers or longer fingernails and have problems using the touchscreen of the iPhone or your iPod touch music player you can get these “pens” and fix the issue…

The price of a pack of 2 stylus is just $5.77 with free shipping.
