Evernote Jot Script 2

Still on my quest for the perfect stylus... I'm anxious to see some reviews on the second version of the Jot Script.

NoteSlate SHIRO

A new year, a new video and more...
"Thank you for your patience and amazing support. This video is for you. It's showing drawing and writing on actual Noteslate SHIRO prototype, monochrome paper alike 6.8inch tablet device with simple pencil interface, the first and the earliest available Noteslate device. Paper replacement. Pre-order will be launched on 15th January 2015. We'll keep you posted. Thank you!"



There seems to be a lag between the writing and the appearance of the lines. Does it look that way to you? It says this is a prototype, so I will cut it some slack, but it doesn't look like the elegant paper replacement solution for which I was hoping.

Jot Script and Jot Touch 4 Review

This is by far the best review of the Jot Script Evernote Edition I've seen. He compares it with the Jot Touch 4.

Based on his comments, I think I will try the Jot Script - once I get a job.

On a related note, I ran into a guy using the Jot Touch 4 at a coffee shop and he showed me how he used it. It was clear he had mastered it - his handwriting on the iPad with the Jot Touch 4 was better than mine with pen and paper.

53 Pencil

An alternative to the Jot Script... the 53 Pencil. It looks a little boxy, but I like the flip to erase. This says that even if I don't love a currently available stylus, I should have hope as people seem to be developing better products.

Jot Script Evernote Edition Now Shipping

I'm still looking at the Jot Script Evernote Edition. Since I am not gainfully employed, I probably won't get this, if at all, until Christmas.

There is some more information available now and a video that helps me form some opinions. One, it looks a little thick. Second, they recommend turning the Multitasking Gestures off. This isn't a show stopper for me, but I know some people really like them for navigating about the screens.

On the positive side, it looks like you can rest your hand on the iPad, just as you would a regular pad of paper:

"Why can’t I write with the Jot Script stylus and my finger simultaneously?
When the Jot Script stylus is properly connected, Penultimate gives priority to the stylus and ignores anything else that touches the screen. This makes it easier for people who like to rest their hands on the screen while writing."

And you customize Penultimate to match your writing style (hand position).

Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus

I'm still looking for the perfect stylus to allow my iPad to replace pen and paper completely. I wonder if this is it: Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus.

(I still wish the NoteSlate had been real.)
