Adonit Jot Touch for iPad Review

The Adonit Jot Touch stylus pen was our favorite when it first came out. It’s still one of the most accurate and precise stylus pens for iPad out there. It’s a bit pricey when compared to other alternatives, but very worthy of the money.

Specs and Design

The battery of Adonit Jot Touch should last up to 11 hours. Or, at least, that’s what they claim. Nevertheless, it sells together with a magnetized usb charger that allows you to charge the pen standing up from its base.

Weighing only 0.7 ounces, this stylus pen is very light and comfortable to hold and use. If you want to use it as a basic stylus, you need to press the smaller of the two buttons. The Jot Touch has advanced features, such as Shortcuts, Palm Rejection, Pressure Sensitivity and Palm Rejection. To take advantage of these, you will have to connect the stylus via Bluetooth to 3rd gen or newer iPad and use apps such as Adobe’s Line and Sketch.

The awesome Adonit Jot Touch measures how much pressure you are putting to the screen and surprisingly, it works quite well. Over time, you will learn to create awesome effects. Features 2 buttons and after couple of minutes of using the pen, I find the buttons a little too easy to press. I pressed some of them by accident and that really annoyed me, because it interrupts the flow of drawing. So here’s a tip: adjust your grip so that your fingers stay away from the buttons.

The smaller of the two buttons are used for utensil selection, color selection and share options in the two apps we already mentioned. The bigger button can be used to Undo some action you have taken in Sketch, but it’s not applicable in the Line.

All in all, the Adonit Jot Touch stylus seems to be one of the best pens for iPad out there and it’s also a good deal for that price tag.
