Adonit Releases JotStudio for iPad, Free for One Week

Adonit, a Seattle-based product design company, has released JotStudio, a drawing app for the iPad intended as a companion for its own stylus products, the Jot and Jot Pro. JotStudio hit the App Store yesterday and is free for the first week, after which its price will go up to $1.99.

JotStudio features a handful of basic virtual paper types: plain, ruled, grid, or storyboard. When it comes to virtual pen styles, you can choose between pencil, fine-tipped pen, marker, or highlighter and several colors for each. There’s also a virtual eraser to let you refine your drawings as well undo and redo buttons. You can also import a photo from the iPad’s Photos app to use as a background or draw on or around.

Adonit’s Jot stylus is unique compared to most other styli currently available for capacitive touchscreens because of its tip design. Instead of a rubber or foam tip, the Jot’s tip features a metal point attached to a clear plastic disk. This disk is what comes into contact with your screen and since it’s clear, you can see exactly where you’re writing. I purchased a Jot Pro stylus from Adonit back when it was a Kickstarter project last year (and reviewed it for my personal blog) and I’ve found it to provide a more pen-like writing experience on the iPad compared to several other styli I’ve tried.

Though JotStudio is intended to be used with Adonit’s own Jot stylus, it will work with any stylus made for capacitive touchscreens or even your finger.

JotStudio is a little glitchy and feels pretty basic at the moment, lacking a feature that I think is critical in iPad drawing apps: wrist protection. Without wrist protection, resting your wrist or hand on the iPad’s screen as you write will be interpreted as drawing, marking up the virtual page more than you intended. When I go to take notes on my iPad, I use NoteTaker HD or NoteShelf, two full-featured writing apps that offer a wrist protection feature. Adonit mentions in JotStudio’s App Store description that many more updates and features are planned so hopefully wrist protection is on their to-do list.

Paper had a good run. JotStudio is a collaging and sketching app calibrated for a precision stylus rather than a finger. JotStudio was built specifically to be used with Jot by Adonit; the most...



I’ve had a Jot Pro for several months. I’m not alone in suffering from “missed strokes” with the device but it appears that adding a tiny dab of conductive grease to the point of the Jot Pro before inserting it into the disc can resolve the problem. On the bright side, it is a very attractive stylus with a great feel. Its magnetized feature is a nice bonus.

Unfortunately I’m afraid for the first release of their note taking app is nowhere near the same quality as their hardware. Compared to many of the competitors it lacks numerous features. Even worse, it crashed repeatedly within minutes of downloading it. And perhaps the ultimate added insult to injury, I found another stylus I routinely use to work better than the Jot Pro.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
“You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

My partner and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I might check things
out. I like what I see so i am just following you.

I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours
lately, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. In my view, if all
site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the internet will probably
be a lot more useful than ever before.

В современное время большую популярность
получили ягоды годжи. И это не удивительно
, поскольку они иногда полезные и при
этом вкусные и красивые .

Ягода годжи растет в свежем виде .
При употреблении ее заливают холодной присыпкой,
реже всего смешивая с чаем . Чай
