However after using it for about 30 minutes it became less accurate and the TFP would only register the jot intermittently. I thought it was just because the tip needed to be replaced because it was worn out? I then tested it on my GF's Ipod to double check and it worked like it did when i first opened it which is weird. This leads me to think it must be either the TFP or android os. quite the mystery.

I am going to try the touchscreentune app to see if I can get it to work with the jot, I'll report back with what I am able to figure out.

I will post a video of this issue on youtube.

(just found out I cant post links yet hmm)

With latest patch (.21) Im sure they changed the filter value for the Screen, since my Stylus stoped working correctly, the lines are straighter, but that is cause the filter is stronger now.

I had to change my TouchScreen Tune settings a bit after new patch, and it is working better now as before.

you need to play a bit with settings to get good results.

Here are my settings:

- Min movement amount: 0
- Disable movement filtering: checked
- Touch sensitivity: 30
- Palm detection: 0 (recommended for stylus writting).

then go to the menu (top-right) button, tap on "Set filter off value" and set it to 0.

and that's it, super awesome Stylus performance on .21

Are there any new recommended settings that people would like to share for touchscreentune for the .28 update?
I've tried playing around with the settings on a friend's stylus, can't really get it to a point I'm satisfied with it.
Also, just to ask another typical question:
Bamboo or Adonit Jot Pro?

Any input would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

Thanks for that DeBoX!
Would definitely consider it! As I'm trying to use the stylus to annotate the lecture notes during lectures, I'm hoping that there are some settings recommended so that the writing on apps like ezpdf (direct annotation) are legible.
Any feedback on the settings of Touchscreen Tune from users would great!
Cheers

Not to be the negative nelly but in my opinion note taking via stylus with the prime is a horrendous experience. I've given up on it. Even with the fancy stylus and touchscreen tune.

Seriously thinking about the Note 10.1 for note taking and annotating pdf files.
