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.

Mural reviews

The unlimited nature of MURAL boards is powerful. I need to space to think and create and reflect and MURAL allows me to do that fast. The sharing aspect is key for me, the real time collaboration, seeing how others interact. It's like magic!

- Louise M. Branding Consultant

Mural is a great tool for collaboration and brainstorming. I liked the fact that it had a rich set of templates that can be availed right away. Mural's interface is designed to be friendly to users and hence it was very easy to use.

- Hema B. Consultant

Mural is the secret tool I use that makes my coworkers think I'm better at sensemaking than I really am. Fast, easy, expressive, Mural is great.

Pros & cons

ReMarkable

Pros
No-latency inking
Simple, no-nonsense interface
Easy to mark up documents

Cons
Extremely limited format support
Complex PDFs render slowly
Monthly subscription required for cloud syncing

Mural

Pros
Not only is this a wonderful and functional app, but it's beautiful to use
It's as aesthetically pleasing as it is soothing to my designer's need to get my ideas across and organize them
I love the concept of having the free space to create and share ideas in real time
Mural is a great tool, generally speaking I am happy with it
The double click for post-its, the "follow me" function, are great
I love that you can paste a URL and it shows a thumbnail of the article."

Cons
One thing that has frustrated new users is getting the hang of controls especially if you are using on a computer (mouse vs trackpad controls are a bit different)
Navigating around the screen can be a little weird, especially if a lot of people are on at the same time
Sometimes the web visualization gets stuck or shows blank boards where they should have content, but a quick page refresh generally fixes it
That you have to pay for the product- not all users are on baord."
