Adonit Jot Pro Stylus

Using the Adonit Jot Pro

Introduction

A stylus allows you to replace your finger on a touch interface and instead use something more approximate to a pen. The Adonit Jot Pro is a stylus designed for writing and drawing precisely.

Purpose

Most styli on the market have a tip thats about the same size as a fingertip which makes writing and drawing feel like you’re using a thick crayon or marker. This is fine for many purposes but for those looking to replicate the look and feel of a pen then the Jot Pro is the solution for you.

Functionality

The transparent tip of the Jot Pro enables you to see down to the exact point where the stylus hits the screen — something no other stylus can boast. It also lets you hold the stylus at the angle you’re comfortable with – something many styluses cant replicate.

The feeling of plastic tip in comparison to the standard rubberised end may take a little to get used to, but it provides the smoothness of a good pen and paper. The devices includes a dampening tip helps make it feel more natural, providing a subtle give when in use.

The hard tip may also creates more noise when writing – so something to consider in regards to your neighbours in a room.

The stylus includes a magnet so that you can store and transport it on the actual device (iPad2 and later models).

There is also a screw cap to make sure the tip isn’t damaged in transit

Value

For those looking to write and draw a lot on their mobile device and you want precision there is no competition.

Recommendation

For anyone requiring a precision stylus this is it. The build quality and result is one of the best on the market. It’s not a budget solution – but it is the best.

Examples/Ideas

  • Use the stylus to sketch and draw to turn your mobile devices into a portable multifunction sketchpad.
  • Take handwritten notes during a class, lecture or presentation.
  • Try your hand at sketchnotes and capture your ideas in a visual form. Great for those that like to doodle!
