Have you tried using Skit or Scroodle (note taking apps) with the stylus? I had absolutely no luck - I had to press so hard it wasn't worth is - as I said I tried the Griffin stylus and one other from the far east whose name I can't remember). If you are:

Reply or don't reply - that is your choice.
If you have been following this discussion, it is ALL about how much pressure one has to apply using a stylus and why the PlayBook is so much less responsive thatn the iPad.
No one is trying to be funny.
So, as I say, feel free not to contribute ...

Guess I did.
But this stylus thing is turning out to be a big deal for me. Also I'm trying to get some hairy recursive coding done that just isn't working, so I'm possibly not reading for the funny stuff.
Bottom line is that while I like the Playbook for most stuff, I honestly think the iPad beats it when it comes to using a stylus.

I think you're probably just looking in the wrong place. There's at least one thread on CrackBerry.com where people have discussed styluses and which ones work well for the PlayBook. Some work fine through the screen protector included with the Otterbox, so obviously it can't be as bad as all that...

Thanks for the pointer, but I have read tons of stylus discussions and some find the stylii useless and other seem happier.
In the discussion you referred me to, someone says he/she is happy with the Griffen - but I tried it and it is useless. You have to press so hard that it isn't worth the effort.
Thats just my experience. I have now tried about 3 stilii in the store and a couple that I made myself - I found them all to be useless. Some may differ, but that's been my experience.
