Evernote is now more than just an app. The company recently announced a partnership with Adonit to produce a unique accessory. The Adonit Jot Script Evernote Edition stylus features a slim 1.9mm tip and is designed to work with Evernote’s Penultimate app. Powered by a regular AAA battery, the stylus connects to any compatible device with Bluetooth 4.0 and uses Adonit’s special Pixelpoint technology for increased accuracy. As users write with the stylus, the paper drifts along the screen to mimic the feel of real handwriting. All notes taken with the stylus are also saved back to Evernote, where they can be then automatically searched by keyword. Thanks to Penultimate’s new Zoom feature, the stylus and app respond to each other. As the Jot Script’s tip approaches the screen, the app enlarges the writing space for better visual feedback. Both companies are also promising quick setup, saying users can go from unboxing to writing with Penultimate in less than two minutes. The stylus costs $74.99 and can be ordered now through Evernote or Adonit. Expected ship time is three to four weeks. Along with the stylus, buyers can select from a number of items in Evernote’s new market. Some of the more interesting accessories include T-shirts, a scanner, and new styles of the Evernote Moleskine Notebook.
