Did You Know? Alternatives to Fingers on the iPhone

If you or someone you know has trouble using the iPhone’s touch keyboard, there are some workarounds that might just do the trick.

One option is the Pogo iPhone Stylus, a specially designed stylus for the iPhone. Even though the iPhone touch screen is designed to respond to the touch of your fingertip, the Pogo stylus somehow fools the iPhone into thinking it is really a finger. The stylus can give the user greater precision with the selection of on-screen items. The Pogo iPhone Stylus retails for around $15.

For those who would prefer to use a regular computer keyboard instead of the iPhone’s touch keyboard, there are several options. Since there isn’t a way to directly connect a USB keyboard to the iPhone, you will need an adaptor to make the connection, such as the iPod’s Camera connector accessory that costs about $25. If you want something more integrated, take a look at keyboards with integrated iPhone docking stations, like the iConnect Media Keyboard which retails for around $130 (www.ihomecomputer.com)
