    What have you tried? Plastic seems to do nothing.

    I was looking on Amazon for some Droid products the other day, and they have a stylus available from a 3rd party vendor now. Sorry, don't have a link..

    I play an on line sketch game and found a stylus much easier than the finger. I have a Dagi stylus and really like it. Search the forum for "Dagi stylus review" that I posted. Someone posted a link to a video of it in action. If you like it you can go to eBay and find them. Also, the pogo stylus is another I have heard of.

    Which one did you purchase? I bought one from Amazon and it really sucked. It had a rubber tip, ever wash your hands and then try to drag across your screen? It works but its sticky for lack of a better word. I have a feeling its the same one.

    Yup, that's what I figured, sorry to say but I doubt you will be happy with it. Give it a shot. The Dagi or pogo is the about the best you can get from what I've read and personal experience.

    If you are looking for something to use with the droid so you can keep your gloves on and hands warm there is "capacitive thread" that you can use. You pretty much just sew some into the fingertip part of your glove and can use the phone with your gloves still on.

    Can you even use a stylus? Dont capacitive touchscreens need the electrical signals from your hand?

    Yes, you have to use a capacitive stylus like the Dagi, pogo, etc. Any stylus that would work on a idont will work on a Droid.
