Adonit has released the Jot Touch 4, the latest addition to its range of iPad styluses – and the first one to offer pressure sensitivity.
Like Wacom’s professional graphics tablets, the Jot Touch 4 features 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, and supports palm rejection, meaning you can rest your hand on the screen as you draw.
There are even a couple of shortcut buttons near the tip of the stylus, enabling users to undo or switch colours, and the unit comes with a compact USB-powered charging stand.
All in all, it’s probably the closest you can get to the experience of using a Cintiq while working on an iPad.
Pros, cons and competitors
At $89.99, the Jot Touch 4 is going to set you back a bit, but the combined cost with an iPad is still less than a decent graphics tablet, and previous Adonis styluses have performed well in group tests.
Software might be more of an issue: compatible apps currently include SketchBook Pro with support for Adobe Ideas and ArtRage in the works, but there’s no mention of Photoshop.
