Ladies and gentlemen,

I haven't found a note about this in the forums so I thought I'd post it. I'm using my newly purchased Adonit Jot Pro stylus on my TF700 with a Zagg screen protector. The screen protector was like a layer of glue, causing the stylus to stick to the screen. The results were pretty ugly at first but I figured out I can put a piece of clear tape on the disc and now it works like a charm:

I did this by laying the tape adhesive-side up on my desk and pressing the stylus disc tip down to create a solid seal. Then I used an Exacto knife to very carefully trim the excess tape. It's pretty much imperceptible, cheap, and now the stylus works perfectly on both by TF700 with the Zagg and my Sammy GNex with a Skinomi. The tape eliminated the friction between the stylus disc and the screen protector while still allowing full functionality of the conductive tip.

I wonder if applying a little rain-x to the disk would work? Some say applying rain-x to the scree makes the pen slide better.

This is only really an issue with the screen protectors that are made with nano memory tech. If you buy the plastic sheet screen protectors it works fine.

Good find though with the tape . Sounds like it will help a lot of people that like the zagg and want to stick with its protection. Wish I had read this before i got like 15 screen protectors for mine for $2. heh. Might end up getting the full body zagg later now.

Zagg with stylus problem solved
hi guys.
i have a android tablet with zagg pasted on its screen. i also have a adonit jot stylus. the two were giving me enough problems.
i read on some forums including this one about the possible fixes. i tried my car wax, (liquid glass) and now my stylus glides like butter.
try any car wax and your problem will be solved. keep in mind you must use the wax exactly like the car. you have to let it sit, for 10 mins or use a blow dryer and wait for 5. then buff it off. try multiple coats.

On a lighter note, how is the Adonit stylus working for you guys? Is it worth considering?
