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

DEVONthink reviews

The thing I like best is that I can export all of the mail from mac mail into devonthink. I then have access to that email, not only from my mac, but also from my iPad and iPhone. The only thing I dislike happens to be one of the things I like most about Devonthink -- The email archiving capability is great, except for the fact that email that is archived to Devonthink is not deleted from Mac Mail. It's not horrible, since I only archived filed email.

Extremeley versatile. Super reliable. Very powerful search functions. Very regular updates. It's take a while to fully explore all the possibilities the application offers (even after more than ten years of usage, I always discover new functions)

I’ve tried all their competitors and DEVONthink is by far the best. Fastest search, most flexible, lots of options of how to store data clipped from elsewhere. Would love more granular flexibility on what data does and does not sync to mobile.

Bamboo Paper reviews

I love bamboo paper and the format. The pens are nice and ic accurately matches my handwriting and works well with my stylus but it’s very sad that I can’t use it much because for school I mainly have to annotate text not write blank notes. This is frustrating for me because I love using bamboo paper but I have to resort to using a sub par app like zoom notes lite which has the features I want ie pdf annotation support and a ruler kit for my math classes. If your using strict blank notes bamboo paper is the best app you will find. I have tested hundreds of apps and this does its job amazingly. I just wish it could support my needs so I can use its great handwriting imitation and feel more often. Also zoom notes lite isn’t bad but compared to bamboo paper everything is subpar.

Using the iPad Air 2 with the Adonit Dash 3 pen and this app in combination is excellent. Good-writing, palm rejection works great 99% of the time. Otherwise you can buy a cheap handwriting glove if you wish. It works by Bluetooth. Make sure you turn the pen on along with the tablet's Bluetooth. The Adonit Dash3 in combination with Bamboo paper is the best most consistent writing experience on the iPad Air 2 which doesn't support any of the Apple Pencils BTW. There is a new electro pen with a copper pen tip that has just been released. It has potential with Bamboo Paper but could use a bit of fine tuning. That pen is not Bluetooth but palm rejection is a bit more hot or miss.. Bamboo paper is great for writing and journaling which is what I mainly use it for. On the iPad Air 2, I would recommend the Adonit Dash 3 pen to use Bamboo Paper.

I’ve been using Bamboo Paper App since 2014 and over the years I’ve been wanting several features add it to make the work flow better and more productive. Bamboo Paper is a great because it integrates with your work flow and provides you with the capabilities of sharing your work with others. The ability to be able to share your work across other platforms and syncing your work makes it possible to work from almost anywhere. I gave it five stars but because of the following I will rate it 4.9 stars. This leaves room for the following: I wish that there were other choices in the type and color of lines to format the pages, that there was the ability to type on each page and that there was a better way to control files, and manage your notebooks. More pens and productivity tools. This app has been around for a long time and from the beginning it has been a tool to go to when I’m teaching. I strongly recommend this App if you are a presenter, teach take notes or just like to doodle. Start using it today! I will be looking forward more tools integrated into the page and better file managements.
