I am currently looking for some advice in regards to using a device that is optimized to use a stylus (namely the Samsung Galaxy Note) with the ArcGIS Collector app.

Does anyone have any experience of using a stylus with the Collector app?  If so, what are your thoughts and recommendations?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I'm wondering the same question...I've only found one other post with someone saying they use the Galaxy Note 3 and that it "works well" but would like some more concrete info on it before pulling the trigger. Can anyone help Jen and I out?

Sam,

After I posted this and didn't receive a response, I went to our ESRI account manager.  He was extremely helpful and sourced a Galaxy Note 3 and tested it with the Collector app.

They tested it on point and polygon files (with subtypes and domains) and found that the stylus made using the app more accurate and there wasn't anything they couldn't do with the stylus.

I hope this helps you as much as it helped me.
