Review: Adonit's Jot Script Evernote Edition stylus for iPad
There are any number of <a href="" rel='nofollow'>keyboard cases</a> for Apple's bestselling iPad devices, as well as the devices' in-built software keyboards, but there's still something about actually scribbling down notes that is appealing. That keeps us at <em>MacNN</em> on the lookout for new stylus devices, ever hoping that we can get our hands on a competent writing implement for our favorite tablet. Popular note-taking app company Evernote has teamed up with iOS accessory maker Adonit to produce the Jot Script Evernote Edition, a fine-tipped stylus that promises more precise notes, thanks to a specialized app. How well do they pull it off? Read on to <a href="" rel='nofollow'>our in-depth look</a> at the device to find out.<br />

I bought one of these for use with my iPad Air. I like to take handwritten notes and using the end of my finger to write with doesn't cut it so I've been reduced to writing with a regular pen on paper then photographing the handwritten pages.

Sadly the new iPad stylus from Evernote is a complete waste of money. As I write or draw on the screen there is a noticeable lag between the tip of the stylus and the line being drawn. The pen connects to the App via bluetooth but the connection drops unpredictable, I am using the latest version of Penultimate which, I think, is the App that this pen is supposed to be optimised for. Finally, I have pretty good handwriting but what comes out of this pen is almost illegible scribble, a kindergartener has better handwriting. Unless there is some bug in the way that this interracts with an iPad Air, which isn't beyond the realm or possibility, I can't recommend this pen to anyone.
