Adonit on Tuesday announced a new Jot Script Evernote Edition, a Bluetooth-enabled note-taking stylus for iPad that features a slimmer build, longer-lasting rechargeable battery and improved precision and app integration. The stylus has a better grip, upgraded Pixelpoint tip and improved palm rejection for a more precise experience with some of the best note-taking apps.

Jot Script Evernote Edition iPad Stylus
Specifically, the stylus is capable of faster stroke tracking, smoother line rendering, and better tip-to-line accuracy. It has a built-in USB lithium-ion rechargeable battery that delivers up to 20 hours of uninterrupted writing, with a full charge taking 45 minutes. The stylus must be paired with a Bluetooth 4.0 device, limiting its compatibility to the third-generation iPad and newer, all iPad mini models or iPhone 4s and newer.

The new Evernote Jot Script 2 stylus is available for $74.99 through Adonit or Evernote and includes Evernote Premium free for six months. The stylus is specifically designed for several note-taking apps on iPad, including Evernote, Forge, Notes Plus and GoodNotes, each of which can be found on the App Store. Pairing the stylus with an iPad is a seamless, one-time process using Evernote's Penultimate.

Hopefully it's quieter than the first one. My god putting that thing to the screen sounded like checking the microphone at a karaoke night.

Also, no company has successfully pulled of the capacitive stylus. Sorry, but the iPad just isn't a note-taking and drawing tool. I realize this may result in my crucifixion for saying this on this site, but get a Surface Pro or Galaxy Note tab to achieve true handwritten notes.

This is interesting. At the bottom of the product page, it says this:

iPad Air 2: 30 hours
iPad Air 1: 50 hours

This makes me wonder if it actually does fix the issue with the iPad Air 2? Like it's having to output a stronger field from the tip to make it register properly on the new display technology that wasn't as compatible? I can't see anywhere that says it has pressure sensitivity, which is the main point of having something like this for me. It seems like the Touch only has that as it's more expensive and lists it plainly on the product page, but I can't find anywhere that it says it works properly with the iPad Air 2.

However... Considering that the iPad 2 uses a new screen technology for refresh that seriously hampers use of styluses. The ultimate question is, will the new stylus work with iPad Air 2? Apple seems to be very silent on this issue, despite a handwritten letter to Tim Cook, I have yet to hear anything regarding Apple's stance on this issue.

Has Adonit fixed the problems with their styli and the iPad Air 2? Been holding off in getting one due to it basically being unusable despite a number of updates.

I realise the iPad isnt designed first and foremost for stylus's but they are pretty useful for drawing and note taking.

I really want to know this as well. As someone who owns the Adobe Ink and Slide (manufactured by Adonit and uses the now previous-gen pixel point technology) and a couple months later bought an iPad Air 2, I haven't been able to fully use the stylus like I could on my old iPad Mini 2 which my wife now uses to run her business. I wanted a bigger display, and loved that the iPad Air 2 has more RAM which means apps crash less often and you can have more layers and higher resolution in drawing apps.

The recent updates to their SDK have improved the wavy line issue, but the disconnection issue is very much present. I have found a work around of keeping one finger from my left hand in the lower corner of the screen while drawing with my right, but this can be annoying if my finger slips off, or if I'm using an app that has a toolbar in the way that constantly gets tapped, or if I'm using an app that doesn't work well with another finger on the screen and glitches out repeatedly.

The whole experience has been frustrating, and considering I spent $200 on it really sours me for trying something else—even if it is much less expensive. I'm really hoping with the iPad Pro Apple releases a branded stylus. I don't care if I have to pay $200 just for that as long as it works. But hopefully they integrate the pressure sensitivity into the display itself, alongside force touch for additional actions (maybe for activating split screen multitasking?), and the pen itself could be made cheaper that way as it wouldn't need to be engineered to such a ridiculous extent just to work.

Still no pen clip.

That's my biggest complaint about the original Jot Script. Even emailed them about it. Looks like it still doesn't have one.

Really don't like the way it flops about in my pocket. Needs a pen clip.

I'm in a holding pattern to see if force touch is coming to the iPhone and iPad. If so then I can see a stylus with pressure sensitivity with apps such as pixelmator.
