The debate of 'best pointing input method' in osu! is one that rages on to this day with no end in sight. Some players prefer a graphics tablet while others use a mouse and let's not forget the few touchscreen users. When I first started playing with only a mouse at my disposal I wanted to try the alternatives at least once, but the closest I had to a tablet was my Galaxy Note 3 and that's exactly what this post is all about.
