Finally, a stylus pen to make my drawings in DrawSomething awesome… NOT.
Even with a nice stylus like this, my drawings are still crap, haha.
But anyway, I’m sure you don’t want to hear about how crappy my scribbles are so let’s head on to the review!
Adonit Jot Mini and Pro in Pictures
Stick them with the pointy end. No, you don’t remove the round plastic discs. The discs have a metal chip in them that allows the pen to write on touchscreen devices and the plastic discs prevents scratching while allowing you to write an any angle.
1. The Adonit Jot Mini and Jot Pro is one of prettier-looking pens in the market.
2. Writing or sketching is definitely more precise with the Jot styluses compared to other styluses with rubber or foam tips. It’s easier to draw corners and write finely.
3. Using the Jot Mini and Jot Pro is comparable to using a pen tablet.
4. I find that you can’t do too fast strokes, light strokes or write too fast, or else it’ll skip, much like when a real pen starts to run out of ink, especially when the plastic disc becomes dirty with oil.
5. You have to constantly keep your device screen oil and smudge-free or else it’ll affect the writing precision of the stylus.
Jot Pro or Jot Mini?
I definitely like the Jot Pro more, as the rubber around the Pro make it easier to grip. But on the cuteness meter, the Jot Mini wins, hands down.
The Adonit Jot styluses definitely made my DrawSomething experience easier. But did it make my drawings better? Heck, no. Haha!
(Talent just can’t be bought, lol.)
Anyway, if you want to buy an Adonit Jot Mini or Jot Pro (there’s also a Classic model), they will be available next week at any Digital Walker stores.
I don’t think the prices are out yet, but for reference, the husband got our stylus from Singapore at the following prices: the Jot Mini was SGD45 while the Jot Pro was SGD49.
