    The iPod touch's screen isn't pressure sensitive, it notices the change in heat/electric current (aka from your hands). But I've seen some homemade projects where people put aluminum foil around the tip of a pen or something like that.

    Anyone that says it is compatible with the iPhone or iPod Touch work, there really isn't a best, they all do the same thing.

    I got one off eBay for $0.99 and free shipping from Hong Kong, and it worked great!

    I looked into some stylus type devices quite a while ago, and I found that the best ones were homemade. I searched around on youtube and people made pretty good ones with only a pencil and some foil. I suggest searching there. There is a variety of materials that can be used, although I personally like just touching the screen with my fingers.

    I don't think you can, the ones that are made have some type of like electrical charge or something like that, and that's how the iPod detects it.

    I pointed out how to make a homemade one above. Something like a pen/pencil wrapped around aluminum foil.
