Scribbling down our thoughts on a new iPad stylus
There are any number of keyboard cases for Apple's bestselling iPad devices, as well as the devices' in-built software keyboards, but there's still something about actually scribbling down notes that is appealing. That keeps us at MacNN on the lookout for new stylus devices, ever hoping that we can get our hands on a competent writing implement for our favorite tablet. Popular note-taking app company Evernote has teamed up with iOS accessory maker Adonit to produce the Jot Script Evernote Edition, a fine-tipped stylus that promises more precise notes, thanks to a specialized app. How well do they pull it off? Read on to our in-depth look at the device to find out.
Adonit's new iPad stylus aims for precision
Some of us here at MacNN like to do a fair bit of scribbling and sketching, and that's not the easiest thing on the iPad, given Apple's eschewal of native stylus support in iOS. Fortunately, there is no shortage of companies making iOS-compatible styluses for the jotters among us. Adonit is one of those companies, with a whole range of styluses for the iPad, and the Jot Script Evernote Edition is their latest release. We're taking a look at the Jot Script, and we've collected our first impressions here ahead of a fuller review in the near future.
Stylus works with iOS and Android
Adonit has begun shipping its Jot Touch, a stylus that is said to work with any touchscreen device. A dampening tip integrates a transparent disc with enough contact area to register touch input on capacitive screens, while enabling users to see where the mark will be made. When paired with a second- or third-generation iPad via Bluetooth, the stylus provides advanced features such as pressure sensitivity and shortcut buttons.
