The 17741 from Trust – also known as simply “Stylus Pen” – does a fair job of meeting varied touchscreen needs. See also How to make a stylus.

Shorter than your average pen, the stylus has a rubberised tip that interacts with your device without the need for too much pressure. Round and spongy, it produces good results from a range of typical iOS activities, including note taking, gaming and sketching. Visit all tablet PC accessories.

Slim and lightweight, the Trust is compact and robust enough to travel just about anywhere. The Trust stylus is also available in special football-themed editions to tie in with Euro 2012 this summer, including a red-and-white option for England fans. Go to Best Draw Something Stylus.

Like many Trust products, the stylus can be found cheaper if you shop around, adding to its potential appeal. Our only quibble is a lack of originality. Several manufacturers are producing similar-looking and -feeling styluses, and this isn’t a particularly innovative offering. See Draw Something review.
