With the emergence of smartphones, tablets and apps that are designed for touchscreen devices, particularly games like Draw Something, I see more and more people using styluses to improve how they use their touchscreen. However, if you’re looking for a stylus that gives you that comfort and feel like you’re using a pen, then, look no further. Adonit Jot styluses are exactly what you need.
The smallest among their styluses is the Adonit Jot Mini. Just like the Jot, the Mini is made of durable aluminum and steel, but it’s lightweight.
The Mini is compatible with all capacitive touchscreen devices: iPads, iPhones, MacBook Trackpads, Magic Trackpads, HTC, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, and Blackberry.
Since I prefer smaller pens, the 4.5-inch long Adonit Jot Mini fits comfortably in my grip. It does make you feel like you’re using an actual pen to write, thus giving you more control over how you’re using it. This is extremely useful if you need to write, sketch or draw on your touchscreen device.
The tip of the Jot Mini has a ball point and it’s pen-like, so you get more accuracy because it only makes contact to a smaller area on your touchscreen, compared to other styluses. The thin disc on its tip is transparent, enabling you to still see what you’re doing with the stylus on your screen.
The disc can be removed, but I don’t see the need to do that since the Mini comes with a screw cap that protects the tip when you travel or for safe-keeping. It can also work as an extension for the pen if in case you needed that extra length.
Also, I just wanted to point out that the disc pivots, so how you want to use the stylus is very flexible. You can switch its use from writing to sketching to a navigation tool because the disc can pivot up to a 40 degree angle.
I tried using the Adonit Jot Mini stylus on my Blackberry phone and my brother’s iPod touch. At first, it felt a little strange ’cause you can hear the metal tip making contact on your screen. To the paranoid, this might be a concern, but after a few more minutes using it on those touchscreen devices, I enjoyed the precision of its tip.
The Adonit Jot Mini has a Mobile Clip carved into the actual stylus for those times you feel like clipping it onto your clothes’ pocket.
This stylus comes in various colors: red, green, purple, and turquoise. I wish they had something in black or dark grey too. 🙂
Take note though that the Jot Mini might not work for some screen protectors because of their extra grip feature (Zagg Glossy Invisible Shield, Ghost Armor, Bodyguardz, Skinomi and Wrapsol). Otherwise, this is one stylus worth having.

Oh, we also got to use this on Ken’s friend’s New iPad and it works pretty well. That’s a good thing ’cause I’m planning on buying the same iPad for my birthday or probably for Christmas. I haven’t really decided yet since I’m still working on house renovations (my nanay and I has been checking sites like PalmFanStore.com for tropical ceiling fans and even Pinterest for ideas for our living room) and our upcoming vacations (Bohol and possibly Pagudpud again in December).
