Jot Touch review: Adonit pressure-sensitive Jot Touch stylus is a smooth iPad operator

Hot Products

The Good The Adonit Jot Touch feels very good and delivers excellent pressure-sensitivity performance with no lag.

The Bad It doesn't have a travel case or spare nibs, and while the USB power charger is cleverly designed, it's likely easily lost.

The Bottom Line Nicely balanced, comfortable and well-designed, the Adonit Jot Touch is an excellent pressure-sensitive stylus for the iPad.

Adonit, makers of the stylus shipped by Adobe as part of its Ink and Slide bundle, incorporates the same fine-point, pressure-sensitive capacitive technology in the Jot Touch with Pixelpoint. With a sleek design, 2,048 levels of sensitivity, and well-implemented connectivity, the Jot Touch is a great creative accessory for your Bluetooth 4-compatible iPad .

The stylus comes in black or black and white, and costs $100 (£80, about AU$145).

Roughly the same size as a desktop stylus, the Jot Touch has a more uniform shape than the Wacom Creative Stylus 2 (its main competitor). The point of the nib is a little bigger than the Wacom's -- 3.17mm compared with 2.9mm -- and the stylus is a couple of millimeters shorter and fatter, as well as about 0.1 oz/4 g lighter. None of those results in a significantly different feel between the two, however. (And they seem to have the same roll characteristics when set on a flat surface, for what it's worth.)
