Customer Review

on 30 December 2013
Unfortunately the Jot Script doesn't do everything it says it should.

1) Precision?

Not quite, the tip of the pen is very fine indeed but it doesn't quite ink at the point where the tip touches the screen. This was from using it on Penultimate. Not very far off the point but was expecting more precision.

2) Designed to feel like a pen?

It definitely feels like a pen and very light even with the battery inserted.

3) Palm Rejection?

Plainly doesn't work. In a way this makes the whole thing useless at this point because the wrist protection feature in Penultimate is not great and it doesn't have a wrist guard option to block off the bottom part of the screen. The inking will always jump around as it keeps detecting the wrist as you write. Tested it on other apps such as Adobe Ideas (which supports the Jot Script) and same problem (even worse than Penultimate). For me, palm rejection is the number one reason (very fine nib being the second) I bought this and this is a big let down.

Other points worth mentioning:

- Used it with other note taking apps such as GoodNotes. No Jot Script Bluetooth support yet, but using the stylus along with the palm protection feature is giving some nice results. Probably on par with using the Wacom Bamboo + Goodnotes.

- The nib on the screen is very loud. I would say it is even louder than using the other Adonit Jot Stylus (the ones with the disc at the end). Maybe this is because the disc had a larger surface area when making contact with the screen and the Jot Script has a very fine point and somehow this creates a much louder noise. Could become very annoying.

- The stylus will not work on the capacitive screen if the Jot Script is not switched on. I guess this is because it needs the battery power to create an electrical current that the screen can recognise. (will work as long as the stylus is on, and even if it is not bluetooth paired to the device). Hadn't really given much thought to this but I can see this being a bit annoying as the Jot Script will power itself down when it is idle and you can't just pick it up and start poking away at the screen.

My main hope for this very expensive stylus is that software improvements will make it more useful. I think that although this pen doesn't work as advertised, it is probably true of all the other Bluetooth stylus like the Pogo Connect, Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus or the Pencil by Fifty Three as the reviews of all these other stylus seem to mention all the faults I have described of the Jot Script.
