Thread: Protective cover Ipad

  1. #1

    Protective cover Ipad

    I was wondering if it makes any difference using Artrage with or without the transparent protective foil on my screen. I bought the iPad with the foil already on it, should I remove it? Does the Jot Touch work better without it?
    thanks so much!

    iPad plastic screen protector.

    I bought a protective cover for my iPad. It was recommended to prevent possible scratches from the jot touch stylus. I've found that stylus now has a bit of a sticky response that prevents smooth strokes. I don't like and will probably remove the plastic cover.

    I wouldn't recommend removing the protective screen when using the Jot touch or the jot pro, if you look very closely you will see very fine marks and that is why it has gone a bit sticky, we can't keep the screen completely dust free while using it, its an impossibility unless you clean after each stroke, it only takes one speck of dust under the tip and it creates a fine scratch sometimes if you feel it then its to late.
    I use the jot touch and change my screen protector when it starts to look a little blurred, I usually change it about once a month depending on how much fir painting I do. I only buy the very cheap protectors so the cost is very little compared to the price of the ipad. I think I paid 10 for a doz last time so works out at a 1 a month, not bad really. Adonit has said the plastic disk will not scratch glass, it won't if the screen is kept meticulously clean at all times. Don't chance it Adonit will not be responsible.

    A little trick to stop the stickiness is to use a furniture polish with silicon in it, spray it on on a paper towel so as not to wet the screen, polish and repeat when it has worn off, it work a treat.

    Tip

    Do you use the disk tip or the metal tip of the Jot, Sapphire?
    I removed the protective sheet and then placed it back on, but now it is all bubbly.
    Is a new sheet less likely to bubble up?

    I think I will leave it on and just replace the sheet more often. Thanks so much for the tip.

    As far as I know there isn't a metal tip by adonit, I have used metal tip from a different company and adapted it to fit the Jot Pro first version, the little ball is much bigger.
    There is a knack to putting the sheets on, I spray the screen with a tiny bit of water then smooth it out with a straight edged piece of card to remove the bubble to the edge, its keeping the dust off the screen while doing it thats the hardest.

    Metal tip mistake

    Right after I posted, I checked the spare tip which I mistook for a metal tip but maybe I didn't have my glasses on, because I hadn't seen the transparent disk....
    what do you use the Jot for? I bought it especially for art purposes, but now I find I need a regular styles for the the regular note taking and for Draw Something. Any recommendation ?

    Hand

    I am totally new to iPad art and I find it art to draw on the iPad, because it seems that I can't rest my hand on the screen while drawing, like you would on paper. Do you suppose it takes getting used to? Because it feels weird to have my hand and wrist suspended while drawing on the iPad !

    Dwarfqueen, it does feel odd at first but you will get used to it, you can get around it by cutting the fingers out of a cotton glove so you can rest your hand on the screen. I hope this little tip helps.

    Rest

    It seems that when I rest my and on the screen, that the screen doesn't 'read' the Jot. Do you rest your hand on the screen? Maybe it helps when I have the iPad horizontal on my desk instead of in my hand or lap.
    Could you explain more the purpose of the glove you described?
