    App crayon is a must have if working with kids. The triangle shape is great for facilitating a tripod grasp and the tip offers just enough drag for some input while using the IPAD .

    I am looking for a stylus to use with my left hand. I AM left-handed, and have broken my ring finger. . The orthpedic durgeon referred to it as a mallet fingerI did through extensive physical/occupational therapy. A new plaster cast was put on my finger every week for over 6 months. Finally, healed. However, with very little effort on my part, raising a window, it broke again. I dimply could not afford the therapy again. It has been months now and has healed in a disfigured position. From the first knuckle forward, my finger will not/ can not move. It is in a humped position. There does not seem to be any pain. It does make it difficult for me to grasp a pen/ pencil/stylus. I am thinking that a stylus that is wider, perhaps spongier that does not require a tight grip would work. Also if it would have a sensitive touch. Do you have anything like that available?
