When I purchased my Blaze, I got into the whole craze of Draw Something (yeah, a bit of a late bloomer). It was also around that time that I started to really like drawing stuff. I was in search for a really good stylus. I had the chance to play with my friend’s Note 2, and I really, really liked it. I wanted to be able to draw and write using a stylus as it feels somewhat awkward to be drawing using the tip of my finger.
My colleague who has an iPhone, uses a stylus with a rubberized rounded tip. It was weird, but hey it works! And so, my friends and I marched over to Greenhills to buy ourselves the stylus for P150. Not bad.
However, it sucked. No matter how much I would want my lines to be precise (e.g., when I draw a box, the corners won’t connect because the precision of the rounded-tip stylus, was well, non-existent), they just couldn’t seem to do it. And it could get a little frustrating.
So when I got my iPad, I thought, it was the best time to get me a new stylus. I searched over the net for the best stylus to use on the iPad and the only non-rounded tip (yes, I kind of avoided them rounded tips. No matter what the reviews say on other more expensive rubberized stylus, I just didn’t want it.) I found was Adonit’s Jot Series.
I have the Jot Mini, in the same color as that one on the picture.
Instead of the rounded tip, it comes with this weird-looking disk. I dunno really how the technology works, but it does. And it’s awesome!
When I first tried it, I was so excited but was horrified when instead of it writing smoothly, my straight line came out as dashes. Uh-oh. So we bought this mother-effer for P1050 and it wasn’t working! So, I tried again, placed more pressure on the pen this time, and it worked.
I was bummed about that. But I’m happy to say that the pen just needs a bit of time getting used to because now, it works perfectly for me. It glides smoothly on the surface of my iPad and I really love it. And yeah, my box corners actually meet this time. Like how awesome is that?
The only thing I don’t particularly like is that it didn’t come with extra disks. Like, wtf am I going to do when this disk breaks? Hahaha.. I don’t know where to get them or if Digital Walker sells them separately. I will need to do more research on that.
All in all though, I love this stylus. I’ve recommended it to a lot of iPad / iPhone users I know. -RA
