Adonit has been hard at work after the successful launch of their Jot stylus. (read the review here). They’ve recently introduced two new additions to their touch screen stylus line; Jot Mini and Jot Flip and they have one more in development which is supposed be a pressure sensitive version of the same design; Jot Touch.
Jot Mini as the name declares is the smaller version of Jot, but it’s not just the size that has shrunk, the precision disk is smaller too which makes the experience much better. Seems Adonit has applied what they’ve learned from the earlier version and Jot Mini feels more responsive, however, when it comes to tapping it doesn’t always register and requires more pressure.
It’s well built and beautifully designed. There’s clip machined right into the piece which adds to the elegant of the stylus but it’s not very practical as the angle of the cut is too sharp and the mouth is so narrow making attaching and removing it very difficult unless it’s been used on a very thin material (hard to use on your jeans!)
Overall Jot Mini is a very good addition to the competition and it has already replaced my Bamboo and Jot Pro! I do hope Adonit will do more with Jot Touch as I think the precision disk can still become a little thinner and more durable and they should include at least one spare disk with each product.
