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

hackmd.io reviews

We've looked for ways to make our team discussions and process more visible and accessible to all users. We recently switched from Google Docs to HackMD. HackMD offers a great unified Markdown editor/preview which is familiar and well-suited to our needs. Our meeting records have improved a lot over a short period and as a result we are able to be better accountable to each other as a team.

Collaborative Markdown editor, very handy and well made to collaborate on documents without giving them to Google. More intuitive and better looking than FramaPad.

Sleek and easy to use. Free but I've donated a cup of coffee. :)

Livescribe Smartpen reviews

The Livescribe 3 Smartpen is the best smart pen we tested because of its impeccable accuracy and ease of use.

- Ian Stokes

Livescribe takes a fantastic idea and makes it even better, introducing a new app platform to its outstanding recording devices.

- Joseph Hanlon

As a pen it is OK. As a recording device it is OK. But as a learning tool that combines both the written notes AND the audio of what was being said while you wrote the note it is AWESOME! Nothing else out there like this!
