Well, I got my Jot Script today. I was excited to hopefully FINALLY be happy taking notes on my iPad. I am sorry to say, that is not the case. First off, don't get me wrong. The Jot Script is the best stylus I have used. It has a nice feel in my hand, feels well balanced and the writing surface is nice and smooth. The problem is, it works better in other applications than it does in Penultimate. I guess this is my Penultimate rant. I will try to stay factual. Problem #1: I still have odd offset issues when I zoom in to write. Sometimes I have to zoom out and back in to get the pen to align properly with the "ink". This doesn't do well for me in situations I need to write quick. Problem #2: The panning effect when zoomed in would be the perfect solution if I wrote cursive. I have not written in cursive for 20+ years. I write with single letters, printing the old school way so it is nearly legible. When I jump over to Good Notes, the zoom feature on that product does exactly what I would love to see in Penultimate. Good Notes seems pretty good.. but notice it's not named Great notes. I find the zoom feature nearly unusable with Penultimate with or without the Script. I had a Jot Pro as well. Same issues. Problem #3: Getting in and out of notebooks is a chore. You can't quickly jump to your notebooks and into another without a lot of flicking and scrolling. Maybe I like the "shelf" paradigm better, but it seems quicker to get to multiple books without having to know what order your books were in based on last edit. Problem #4: This is a nit.. but Notes Plus has a feature that I'd like to see Penultimate do as well. Some sort of "smoothing" of my writing. It's hard enough to write on a tablet with crappy handwriting, but it does make it look nicer with their feature. On that note, Good Notes has the "shapes" feature. This is very useful when doing quick diagrams. I like to do quick interface designs.. and shapes (not stencils necessarily) would be a great help. The auto-shape feature on Good Notes is the right mix of speed and accuracy. Problem #5 You can't sort your custom papers, or create custom folders. I'd like folders custom for writing, scheduling, interface designs, etc I am hoping the Penultimate team steps their game up. The custom papers is a great feature. Evernote sync is top notch. There are just too many issues from keeping me using this product. I am moving on for now and taking my Stylus with me. Maybe I'll be back after some updates. In my humble opinion, Penultimate is NOT at the standard level of Evernote's product. BTW.. I have been a paying sub for Evernote from the beginning. I was 2,194th paying user. I LOVE Evernote.
I am using an iPad and at first my Jot worked just fine but now I can't keep it on. I turn it on, then sync it, it says it found it but then it stops. I have changed batteries but no difference. Very frustrating that this started to act like this in a meeting. Less than 12 months old. How do I get this resolved?
So, I got the Adonit Jot. I go to a LOT of meetings. Constantly losing paper. Notebooks are a pain to share. Gotta go and scan everything in, etc. I am looking for a clean solution to help me keep handwritten notes in Evernote. I read the reviews on Penultimate with the Jot before I bought and really didn't think that it could be that bad. Unfortunately, I was wrong. <RANT> Evernote: Penultimate with the Jot is embarrassing. Dropped letters, wrist protection that is spotty at best, very poor annotation functioning (would a highlighter have killed you?), the list goes on. However, the handwriting experience is the worst. The graphic lags, letters get dropped, and I can scarcely read my own writing. I jumped to Note Shelf -- wow, what a difference. If this had robust, automatic, Evernote sync, I wouldn't be complaining here -- I'd be using their software. However, I'd like better sync. Penultimate has that sync, but the rest is just plain awful. Not what I expect from this company... </RANT>
Hi all I wanted this thread to discuss the process and feedback from either Evernote or Adonit about Jot Script issues, not to talk about the issues themselves. Like many others I pre-ordered an Adonit / Evernote Jot Script when it was announced. I also just upgraded my iPad 2 to an Air, to take advantage of the Bluetooth support for the Script and better portability for note taking. To add to the problems, I had to wait 3 weeks for the pen to be delivered to Australia. Has there been any acknowledgement from Evernote about the issues we're experiencing? I'd like to believe that the experience will improve with firmware updates to the app, but without some acknowledgement that someone is listening I can't see that happening. The product has both logos on there so I see the two companies both having responsibility for the product working. Look forward to hearing from Evernote and the community on here.
