I was given a Jot Script a few weeks ago to try out. I was using it on Adobe Ideas for iPad and the app shut down all of a sudden and I’m all, NOPE! I’m not doing this again! Finally worked up the appetite to do it again this morning.
Just a brief overview: The JOT SCRIPT is a pressure-sensitive touch screen stylus by Adonit. It’s designed to feel like a pen. It has a really small tip which makes it easier for you to create very precise lines. You can read more about it on the website.
This is the 2nd time I’ve gotten an Adonis Jot pen and so far I’ve been happy with it. I like this much better than the Jot Pro because it doesn’t have a barrier at the tip. Some of my thoughts on the product:
- It’s precise. It’s much easier to use the Jot Script especially if you’re writing a LOT of stuff. If you use your fingers, you end up writing bigger because you can’t see what’s under your finger. The Jot Script can help you save a lot of writing space.
- I noticed that if I’m drawing details, it’s a lot easier to use the pen.
- Angle sensitive. If you paint at a different angle, it produces a slightly different brush quality. I used Adobe Ideas for mine. Some apps might do things differently.
- Response time. Not sure if it’s just me but there’s a little bit of delay whenever you draw with it. I get really impatient so I sometimes switch back to my fingers when I draw.
- Some lines become more rigid. I guess if you’re using a stylus, your penmanship would change a bit. I don’t think this is such a big deal. It’s just something I noticed.
I think the Jot Script is perfect for writing! For drawing, it actually takes a lot of effort to draw on a touchscreen device using a stylus so I often switch back to my hands. But if you’re doing detail work, it’s great! I’d definitely recommend it, especially if you’re an avid notetaker.
If you’re from the Philippines, the Jot Script (P3,850) is available at Digits Trading stores nationwide.
