Evernote and Adonit Unveil Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Evernote and Adonit recently introduced the Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus with the smallest stylus tip on the market measuring 1.9mm.

According to a release, the Jot Script combines Adonit's new Pixelpoint technology and Penultimate, Evernote's handwriting application.

The company reported that the Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus was designed by Adonit to feel like a pen. Its refined metal finish, ribbed grip, fine point, and weighted hand balance all reflect the quality that Adonit styluses are known for.

"Adonit developed Jot Script to be the ideal stylus for taking notes. We've stripped everything away so you can just focus on capturing your ideas," said Kris Perpich, CXO at Adonit. "We partnered with Penultimate to focus on a deep integration of Jot Script into a great note taking experience. Our collaboration allowed us to step back and rethink the ideal digital note taking experience. It's going to bring back the lost art of handwriting." Additionally, Penultimate's digital inking features pair with Adonit's Bluetooth-enabled Pixelpoint technology for accuracy previously unattainable on any touch screen. With Penultimate's new Zoom feature, the interaction between app and stylus becomes dynamic. As the Jot Script's fine tip approaches the screen, Penultimate responds by enlarging the writing space for better visual feedback. And as the user writes, the digital paper drifts along with them mimicking the natural feeling of handwriting.

In Penultimate, notes taken with the Jot Script are saved back to the Evernote service where they instantly become searchable by keyword. Those same notes can be synced across other devices like PCs, smart phones, and tablets and shared with family and friends.

"The Jot Script is the realization of what everyone who has ever used a stylus is hoping for," said Ben Zotto, head of Penultimate products at Evernote. "With Adonit, we've created a really satisfying experience for people who love writing, but are looking for the additional convenience and features of taking notes digitally." The accuracy, experience, and fine point of the Jot Script Stylus are enabled by Pixelpoint technology. Combining an accelerometer and Adonit's SDK, the angle and location of the stylus tip is communicated directly via Bluetooth 4.0 to integrated apps like Penultimate. This allows the app to place the ink point exactly underneath the stylus tip at every position, creating a natural handwriting experience with guaranteed accuracy in every line, letter, and signature.

The Jot Script is powered by a standard AAA lithium battery and connects wirelessly to Penultimate via Bluetooth 4.0. Users can go from unboxing to writing in Penultimate in less than two minutes.

The Jot Script Stylus Evernote is available immediately for pre- order on Evernote and Adonit's websites.
