I recently had a chance to check out the Adonit Jot Script Evernote Edition, an advanced stylus designed for iOS. Its Pixelpoint tip is the most precise tip on the market, and it provides an almost pen and paper feel. It takes AAA batteries and is compatible with all iOS devices, although the iPad is probably best for writing.
I’ve never been one to take notes or write at all on an iPad. At work, I use the old standard, a pen and a notepad, but I have a stack of used-up notepads piled up. Plus, I have no idea what notes are contained in any of those pads! After using the Adonit Jot Script, I can totally see the value in taking notes on my iPad in the Penultimate app and saving them to my Evernote account. I can keep virtual notebooks for each client and keep myself organized, all in the cloud. There are also a number of Jot-Ready apps designed specifically for use with the Jot Script. I had a lot of fun testing out the Adonit Jot Script, as you’ll see in the screenshots below.
Using the Jot Script is a breeze; you just turn it on, open Penultimate, and sync your stylus by pressing it inside a predetermined target. Now that your stylus is synced with your iPad, you can take notes on your iPad just as you would use a pen on paper. You can even rest your palm on the screen of the iPad without worrying about false entries because all the iPad is looking for is your stylus point. The Adonit Jot Script truly gives the user an exceptional handwriting experience.
What can be better than the Jot Script, you ask? Why, the Jot Script 2! One of our co-owners and Senior Editor, Dan Cohen, has the Jot Script 2 in his hands at the moment and he’s preparing a full review.
