Tech Review: Adonit Jot Classic

I used to be a "Draw Something" addict and I believe a lot of you can relate!  I actually stopped playing the game as aside from the fact that I'm bad at drawings, I dislike how difficult it is to draw with your fingers!  When a JOT Classic sample was sent to my home for review, I road tested it straight away via Draw Something game and of course, with the expertise of Mr. AMW, I'm finally able to come up with a proper review!



Jot says ---
Touch screens have simplified technology, but there has yet to be a way to capture the precision of a calligrapher or the stroke of an artist.  Not only should it meet your needs, but a stylus should have a style.

Mr. & Mrs. AMW says ---
Pros

  • Comes with a protective cap.
  • Available in various shades: Turquoise, Green, Purple and Red.
  • Weight is perfect.  It's not too light nor too heavy.
  • It is easy to sketch, doodle and write.
  • Compatible with a lot of device: iPads, iPhones, MacBook Trackpads, Samsong, Nokia, Blackberry, etc...
  • This stylus performs really well in terms of its quick response.

Cons

  • Does not work in ALL screen protectors (ex. Zagg Glossy Invisible Shield, Ghost Armor, Bodyguardz, Skinomi, Wrapsol).
  • Would be great if the JOT Classic will come with a "clip" so I can easily clip it to prevent it from getting lost inside the bag.
  • I know some are ok with it but I actually like the "ball" as the tip, not the clear disc that can be easily destroyed if not used carefully.  I nearly removed the clear disk thinking it was the protection for the stylus.



Overall
Fast response, perfect weight, price is reasonable.

Tips

  • Hold the pen like you would do with a real ballpen.  Draw or write as usual.
  • Be careful  not to tap the screen with heavy hand.
  • Close the cap after every use to prevent from destroying the clear "disk"

Will I purchase?
 I would love to own one just for "Draw Something" but that's where I could use it for now so it's not practical.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes to use a "pen" on their devices.

The clear disk with the ball point.
The metal ball point tip makes it easy to control the angle


This is NOT my handwriting!  *lol*
But still cute right?  
*whispers* It's Mr. AMW's

Do you need Jot Classic in your techie life?
Would you purchase one only for gaming or do you have other usage for this?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
