Jot Touch Review and Mod
Here is my review of the Adonit Jot touch:
Jot Touch with cap and USB charger:
Top: stock tip. Bottom: modified bent tip
New modified tip allows for extreme angles:

My Procreate pencil settings, for Jot Touch:
-Great design and build quality
-Great pressure sensitive solution for the iPad
-Works well with ArtRage and Procreate
-Easy Bluetooth pairing
-Long battery life
-2 function buttons, great for future app support
-Great see through tip disc, for detailed line work
-Comes with cool USB charger with magnet attachment
-Comes with extra tip and disc.
-Only works well with Procreate and ArtRage, as of early Aug '12. Some other supported apps have various issues. This should be all resolved with future app updates.
-Nothing really works for the iPhone :(
-iPad 1 is not supported.
-Pressure sensitivity is low, feels like tablet PC's. Not the pressure levels like the newer Wacom tablets and Cintiq.
Tilt angle is not enough, often miss lines when too angled. Solved by modifying the tip!
-At $100, it is a bit steep. Understandably so, but not for everyone.
