Why do you need a stylus pen?

Does using a stylus serve any purpose? Isn’t it just a way to look a little more classy when you use your smartphone with a stylus?

Using a stylus can help you be more accurate when you type and swipe on any touchscreen device. When you want to highlight and select specific text (like a phone number hidden in text), it can also help you do so more precisely. For example, you might have had trouble highlighting a phone number hidden in a lot of text.

With a stylus, you can use apps that allow you to draw or write on the screen. Isn’t the use of tools a sign that humans have evolved? If so, doesn’t that make people who eat pizza with a fork advanced eaters and people who use styluses are the most advanced tech users?

We say that people who use a stylus to write on their phones or tablets are more advanced. We also say that people who use a pen and a stylus together are well on their way to becoming the world’s best at communicating with each other.

List of other materials you can use 

  • Cotton bud or Q-tip

A cotton bud can come in handy while designing a stylus pen. You can replace the messy cotton with a manageable cotton bud. 

You can put it inside the pen to create a soft nib for your pen. You can then follow the above process as usual. 

  • Arrowhead Eraser

An assorted arrowhead eraser can also play an efficient role in the nib of the pen. You can include a pencil eraser as a stylus pen. You just need to attach it to a sharp object to keep it steady.

It holds on ink for a lasting time too. It has less absorbency property so it will last longer than its cotton alternatives.
