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

ReMarkable reviews

I love my device, the cuff around the pen tip broke the first time I dropped it though, which really affected how it works, but I still use it. Could use a little extra durability there. Other than that, this device has been great. A few suggestions are that this app is multifunctional so that you can edit your documents from it with a stylus on your phone, and also that you can add templates to extra pages in pdfs. Other than that, I hope to use a color version in the future.

This is exactly the minimalist app I would expect. If you read into what the creators of reMarkable tablets were aiming for you will note that this fits that goal quite well. They wanted primarily a note taking platform and this app is assumed at an easy way to access those notes. Yes there are many features that would be nice to have, but I am quite happy with what this is. They focused hard on making a wonderful tool for reading notes taken on the tablet with a dash of other features.

High potential, but not there yet This app has potential, but still misses the mark. A few things that would turn this app fr good to great for me include: - being able to upload pdfs from within the app. I can open up a pdf in other apps and then share to the Remarkable app, where the pdf ends up just being uploaded to the root directory, where I have then move files later. It would be helpful if you could navigate to any folder and then click “Upload” and search for a pdf on your phones file manager to upload to that specific directory - using less storage space. I’m not sure but I feel like when you download the app it syncs all the files onto your phone. It would be great if it only synced “thumbnails” and gave us the option fully sync files, either all or selectively as needed - faster syncing. It’s terribly slow but I’ve had several instances where it took a few minutes to sync files either way (phone to remarkable or vice versa) - allowing screen sharing. It would be awesome if the screen sharing feature for desktop was added to mobile I’d probably use the app much more with these added functionality, instead of how I use it now, which is primarily just to see what I’ve written on my Remarkable when it’s not with me.

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.

- Jacob Kral

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!
