Handwritten Digital Notes with Jot Script
When inspiration comes, nothing beats grabbing a pen and paper, and putting thoughts into words. Neither a physical keyboard nor a touchscreen keyboard with fancy predictive technology could hold against the tactile and fluid flow of ink on notebook. But
1 The Jot Script is easy to set up. First, remove the plastic spacer within the Jot Script and turn it on by pressing the button on the stylus. The green LED will blink, showing that it is ready to sync. Next, ensure that Bluetooth on your iOS device is turned on. 2 Coupled with the Penultimate app, which is powered by Evernote, Jot Script becomes a very powerful tool. To sync the stylus with the app, simply go into the app’s ‘General Settings’, choose ‘Jot Script Evernote Stylus Setup’, and follow the on-screen instructions. 3 Now that both the app and the stylus have been paired, you can begin using it to take notes. The app will now register inputs using the Jot Script on the page, and not your fingers. Open a new notebook by tapping the plus sign at the lower left side of the Penultimate home screen.
4 Choose from a variety of paper styles available, either pre-installed or the selection of free and premium paper styles available in The Paper Shop. Use colors to brighten up your notes, making them more interesting and easier to understand. 5 Penultimate’s Drift feature lets you take notes while zoomed in on a page. It automatically moves the screen, depending on the speed of your handwriting. Powered by Evernote, you can search your handwritten notes on your device, or stored on Evernote. 6 Another powerful tool at your disposal is cut and paste. Simply select the cut and paste icon, then the area you want to cut by drawing around it with your stylus, and you can drag it to any new position, or even paste it onto another page.
7 To ensure best performance, turn off Multitasking Gestures on your iOS device when using the Jot Script as it could interfere with your experience. If the app registers your palm or fingers as an input, make sure that Bluetooth is turned on, the battery in the stylus is good, and both the app and stylus are synced. 8 The possibilities are endless with Jot Script. You can take notes or draw to your heart’s content. It is intuitive, easy to use, and will be an indispensable tool in your everyday tasks.
