Adonit has released an update to their previously collaboration with Evernote with the new Jot Script 2. This updated version seems to solve the several problems that the first version was plagued with so lets take a quick look at the included changes.
Adonit has updated their Pixelpoint technology which should provide better accuracy, faster note taking, and just an overall smoother experience. They’ve cut the fat on the Jot Script 2 by making it physically slimmer as well, though the tip stays the same at 1.9mm. Frankly, I was a fan of the previous size, which gave it a good heft and feel in the hand already.
The previous version required you to use a battery, but now they’re including a rechargeable base. This contributes to their ability to slim down the barrel and they claim will last you for 20 hours between charges. It’ll take approximately 45 minutes to charge but a slight price to pay to avoid dealing with AAA batteries.
The Jot Script connects to your iPad via Bluetooth and works with any app, but there are several compatible apps that maximize the value of the stylus with integrated palm rejection, Pixelpoint support, and pressure sensitivity. These include Photoshop Sketch, Procreate, and their own note taking app, Penultimate.
To top off it’s value, they now include a 6 month Evernote premium subscription with each purchase, that’s a $30 value itself.
The Jot Script 2 is available for $74.99 on their website today
