Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Concepts: Sketch, Note, Draw reviews

Great drawing app! It's the most accurate and responsive software I could find for use on my drawing tablet. The low latency option really is responsive with no pen lag. I love the design of the tool and color wheel. It took me a little time to get used to it but really found it intuitive. The brushes are great with tons of textures to work with. I don't know if I missed them but animal textures like feathers, scales, or hair would be an awesome addition. I recommend it!

Oddly missing basic tools like the ability to draw lines, splines, circles, etc.. you can only use guides or grid to draw them. Fill bucket painting as well. Minor issue that either the tool labels are always upside down or the color selection is. If the numbers could rotate to stay upright & legible that'd be great.

The Android and Windows apps are so much better than one year ago! I only miss a few fixes, like press & hold always brings up the colour picker for me instead of the selection tool. Also would like to be able to choose and save custom colours, and better file organisation (why did they remove the sidebar to switch projects?). Besides this, They've made lots of progress, please keep it up!

Post It reviews

I thought this app would be kind of useless... but it’s been kind of life-changing. I have a color-coded board of 250+ post-its I’m using to organize everything my team is doing at work. I have calendars and lists and reminders, but especially for nebulous ideas, conversation-planning, brain-storming, long-term ideas that I can’t just check off on a list... I love being able to see everything visually (even if it’s kind of giving me heartburn to see 250+ things I have to do). I can even share with my team when I want to. The app is great for note-taking, too. I can organize notes on different research topics or ideas according to subject matter, so I can synthesize from different sources without flipping through a thousand pages in a notebook. The best part is having everything in my phone. Nothing to lose, nothing to flip through, nothing to carry around. There are plenty of color options, but I would love a few more. And I’d like an option to just duplicate a post-it. Sometimes I just need the same idea in more than one place! Or even an option to move a group of post-its to its own board when an idea gets bigger than you thought.

Not only does it handle really well. It supports an assortment of exporting tools. Files types like pdf, csv or even full blown app exports for powerpoint and even Trello for you kanban users out there. I like it a lot actually. Now if you guys created a printer that could be loaded with sticky notes and have the thing print all my cards onto physical cards....we’d be in the best of both worlds. Because now I can still purchase and support physical cards on the fly and be able to just generate a board instantly and I would still be comfortable working on my digital or physical platform. An even better idea would be to have a company that already houses your product, like office depot, offer this ability as a feature for the public. That way we can come in store, win for them and print our boards or cards out as needed with a specialized printer. Numerous wins here. The camera feature already has the other end showed up in case we want to convert to digital from physical. But the reverse is needed to close the loop and make this app fully functional in a more practical setting. Please add to roadmap. I think this would boost revenue on all fronts and could even become the next trend of how notes and boards are made. Post it boards can even be developed with specialized fields in place just for this app. The ability to mass print cards in the stores would be awesome.

It’s a great accompaniment to post-its. Very well designed, and now there’s an easy way to digitize all of those paper post-its, so you can still jot notes down on paper and then quickly photograph them with this up. Aesthetically appealing, and surprisingly well executed. Only thing I can think of is if you could move/copy post-its between boards; and OCR. The iCloud backup is good, but I wish it would be a bit closer to instantaneous if you have this App on multiple devices - I have it on my iPhone and my iPad, I tend to use the iPhone camera and it’s convenient, but I prefer annotating them on my iPad with the pencil. Sometimes there’s a significant lag, yes you can always airdrop them to your other device, but that can create duplicate boards - and for some reason individual post-its don’t airdrop (in post-it board format) and a board can get too large to airdrop, which isn’t super difficult especially if you do what I do and have a board per week of post-it activity (and I use post-its avidly at work); So that’s what I wish they’d fix in one of their updates and adding the other two features mentioned would be nice *hint, hint* to the App developers. But this is fantastic!
