A solid start
So this is a good start, the Joto works and is pretty cool. Things I’d like to see in the app:
-fix the drawing functionality so that curves are better rendered, now they are squared off quite a bit. Add an eraser and some basic editing tools. Add a way to type in text rather than pen input only.
-history of what images were drawn, and when.
-add some functionality to import drawings?
The biggest issue I have is that I can’t draw a picture with smooth lines - I’m pretty sure that the pictures they have in their adverts weren’t drawn with the app since they have nicely curved lines. I’m guessing they have a way to import them and it’d be nice if I could do that too.
This has just been recently released so I’m sure they’ll be adding some polish, since that will increase their potential market (this thing would be great for daily specials at a cafe if the editor was better!). Looking forward to seeing what they do with it...
Drawing and Creation Tools Severely Lacking
As I am sure many other’s will realize as they receive their new Jotos, this device has a lot of potential but currently is barely usable. I have not purchased the professional art subscription which seems to promise very crisp clean graphic art. In fact, all the drawing examples advertised for Joto are very precise graphic designer. As a designer myself, I am at a loss as to how poor the drawing tool performs. There are no undos, no eraser, and palm rejection support which is built into iOS. Even worse, the app is unable to capture anything resembling the drawing inputted. For example, if I draw a circle it converts into something closer to a square. I am not sure if this is due to the app needing to translate the drawing data into a vector based art form. If so, I think the tool would be better off providing shapes, Bézier curve tools, and type tools instead of a unusable free form drawing tool. Also, it would be nice if there was support for other content creation tools like Photoshop, Illustrator, Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer or Procreate.
Simply put the Joto team needs to fix and improve content creation tools quickly. Current software state is does not bode well for the future of Joto period. Quite frankly it’s a bit disappointing especially considering the long production and shipping delays. Hoping to see improvements soon.
Hardware...decent. Software...not ready
I’m SURE they’re working on updates to this software...they HAVE to be...the Joto itself seems solid and good to go. It runs on Gcode, super simple. The software/drawing tools are, at best, mediocre. There’s no erase, only individual line rotation + shrink/grow. It’s nearly impossible, even with a good stylus pen to duplicate some of the artwork they’ve portrayed on the app docs. This seems to be because the app compresses the GCode from drawing to board (to shrink streamed data packet?) resulting in a relatively blocky curvy line. It’s too bad, it seems the app was rushed out to make up for lost time as the hardware was delayed quite a bit. Personally, I’d rather have waited an extra year for delivery in order to have a better app. My 2¢ anyway.
