Touch screens have simplified technology, but there has yet to be a way to capture the precision of a calligrapher or the stroke of an artist. Not only should it meet your needs, but a stylus should have style. We would like to fix that. Introducing Jot, the stylus the world has been looking for.
Top Customer Reviews
My first stylus was Bamboo Wacom, liked it, but the rubber tip tore within 10 days, and low and behold, Wacom hasn't had any replacement tips available for a long time and only stall you when you call and ask. Fail. For $30 you expect more, and replacement tips.
So, tried several other rubber tipped styli (hollow bulb types, 8mm and 6mm), and they tore in short order -- all price ranges. Ok, so if you put your rubber tipped stylus in your pants pocket, it will tear. Fact. Also a fact, few brands provide a real cap to cover up the rubber tip for such situations. They must think people just sit at desks with their styli. Fail.
BTW, one thing I learned about the hollow rubber tipped styli -- with few exceptions they are the same whether you pay $30 or $3 for them... yes you can get *excellent* rubber tipped styli for about $3 each (or less!) on Amazon and other online suppliers. I now have a significant supply of them.
The brush-style tips won't work for regular writing... I take written notes, and don't do digital painting much. But one day I'll try one just for grins.
Finally, I decided to try the counter-intuitive (in my mind) Adonit Jot Pro and the Dagi styluses --- the ones with the little clear plastic disc on the tips instead of a rubber tip or brush. Tried the Dagi first, it's tip is spring-loaded... LOVED IT... such smooth and precise action. But, their so-called "protective cap" sucks hugely and doesn't seat firmly on the back-end of the too-short stylus while using it, so the cap is easily lost or dropped while writing. And now that I've been through 2 of the Dagi's I've discovered they include in the packaging the *wrong* replacement tip... too big and doesn't work. And, after about 2 weeks of use the spring breaks due to wear. To boot, Dagi is based in Taiwan and don't have a U.S. presence to help w/ problems. Fail. Still, I have found Dagi has the best feel of all styli, in terms of smooth action... despite its other shortcomings.
Frustrated with Dagi's so-close yet so-far solution, I turned to Adonit and their Jot Pro which uses the same clear plastic disc tip concept as Dagi, but doesn't have the spring loaded feature. Low and behold -- a winner, mostly! It has the same smooth gliding action as the Dagi -- though you do notice the lack of the spring shock absorber at first, but adjust to. And the stylus is the proper length... like a regular pen would be... fits in the hand much better than all the shorties that everyone else produces. And the protective cap screws onto the tip area and to the back area... won't get lost or fall off.
I am happy now. At last. After dozens of brands and models of styli. My only gripe is that the Jot Pro needs a pocket clip, not so much for clipping to your pocket, but to give you some additional support for the rather slick and slippery smooth metal casing AND to keep it from rolling off your desk, which it will, guaranteed. What I've learned is that if you drop a Jot Pro with the tip exposed, you'll likely crack the little clear disc and have to replace it.
I'm sure other styli will come out, eventually one that nails it every department. Until then, and only for this brief moment, I am convinced that the Adonit Jot Pro is the best for me.
Previous to this I tried a number of styluses, as have many of my friends and colleagues. My previous preferred brand was Boxwave, which makes low-cost, decent ones. As a working experimental scientist, I keep a lab book in Penultimate. I write copious notes, normally involving mathematical derivations, technical drawings, and tables of information.
The biggest problem with a normal capacitive stylus is that you cannot pick up a line where you left it. If I draw a vertical line, and then try to put the stylus down on the top to make a corner, this is very difficult to do with any other stylus. But the Jot Pro, with its transparent plastic surface, allows for MUCH more precision in this task. I would estimate my ability to get the line drawn just where I want it is at least 10 times better than with a normal "nub" stylus. The Jot Pro has also allowed me to write notes more compactly, and it's to the point where my iPad writing and my normal ink pen writing on paper are getting indistinguishable.
There are a couple notes (not complaints) that I would make. First is that the Jot Pro is a little bit loud in a very quiet room, as it clicks slightly when you put it down onto the screen. This gets better with time, as you get used to it. I also had issues at the very beginning with the amount I had to push on the screen, but again, once you get the knack it's fine. I haven't noticed any damage or scratching on the screen despite heavy usage for a couple months.
The only gripe I have is that I do not at all care for the magnetic capabilities of this. I put my Jot Pro into an iPad case on the right hand side, and if I have the magnet situated too high the iPad will think that I'm using the official iPad magnetic case and won't lock the screen. It's just a nuisance.
Short of an actual smart pen (which I have never tried, and which go for about 4 times as much money), this is likely the best stylus for capacitive screens. You should buy one.
But if you like using a stylus rather than your finger for games, general navigation, etc...this is not the stylus for you. In fact, I'd love to see a "double ended" version of this stylus with the Jot point on one end and a typically rubber-tipped stylus on the other.
Good heft, works great for intended purpose and generally a joy to use. Oh and for those that say it scratches your screen...I've used it for over a week now for hours each day, no screen protector, and not a single scratch. I think some users need to clean their screens more often so you aren't pushing around foreign particles like dirt, sand and fingerprint grease.
