Jot Touch Pixelpoint Review+Procreate (Pressure Sensitive Stylus)lightroom
A quick first impression of the latest Jot Touch from Adonit. The Jot Touch with Pixelpoint is a fine point Bluetooth stylus for iPads equipped with Bluetooth LE or later. Learn more at Adonit.Net
This review covers the Jot Touch Pixelpoint used with the Procreate App for the iPad. I may do a separate review using other drawing apps for the iPad as soon as I get a chance (been swamped with work!)

Here’s a brief breakdown:
Weight- appears heavier than it is. A solid device that feels well-balanced. It rests very well between my thumb and index finger.
Charge Life- it arrived fully charged allowing me to get right to work. I’ve been using it for a good 5 hours off and on during the day and it’s still at a 100% charge. That could be a flawed reading from Procreate since it’s not fully supported yet. They claim 20 hours steady use or a month on standby. The previous Jot had similar performance so I don’t see why this version would be much different.
Connectivity- Seemed tricky at first. This is one area that could use a bit more clarification. My other Jot was already paired so I had to go into my general Bluetooth settings and forget the previous device. After waiting for a successful pairing, I remembered this generation of Jots, like their predecessor, pair on a per app basis. By opening Procreate and holding down the lower button on the Jot Touch for a few seconds, it was ready for use. I got the prompt from the app that it was connected and I was on my way.
Performance- The new Jot Touch works pretty well with Procreate as of this review, however there is a slight issue with offset and wavy lines if drawing diagonally or slow, long strokes across the iPad. That is expected to be corrected once the newest SDK goes out to developers within a week.
Overall, this device is going to be a game changer. For years iPads have suffered the reputation (undeservedly) of being just a consumption device. With the proliferation of electronic styli, artists have begun to embrace the idea that with the right app and the right stylus, they could leave their laptops and Cintiqs at the studio and take that harmless looking iPad out on a date!
Sorry for the quality. Shot with an iPhone, calm down 🙂
