    Looking for any suggestions for getting an inexpensive (I guess that means something other than apple:)) pen or stylus for the iPad 6th generation? Everything I’ve googled comes up with pens and stylus’ for drawing and writing notes, etc. That is not what I am looking for. I’m looking for something that can be used like my finger—clicking on something and opening it up or click and drag, etc. I want one that I can use to navigate on and around the screen. I’m trying to keep it under $20-30?

    Any suggestions?
    Thx.

    @kojack - when we had problems with a iPad randomly opening stuff it was to misaligned touch screen (after changing a battery. We removed the screen, reinstalled, and had no issues afterwards.

    Not saying your problem is not the bloating iOS, but could be a hardware issue.

    I would tend to agree with you @pressing but my apple store is not on the main screen of my ipad. its like 4 screens over. But maybe. Great excuse to get a new surface pro X though! ha ha ha.

    Just a quick update on getting a cheapish pen. I did order and received the pen yesterday and have been using it on my iPad. Seems to work fine for my use, so far. As an added bonus, I found that it also works on my android phone.
    When I ordered this the other day, I also ordered a case for the iPad. The plastic part of the old case (that actually held the iPad) had cracked and broken and had several sharp points on it. I like to read the iPad in a portrait fitting, and this case does adjust to that (along with horizontal mode).

    i did buy, as is my custom, on the cheap side ($37) shipped for the two of them.

    Although not the best, I am happy with the purchase, after one day’s use.:)
