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.

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

Spikenow

Pros
I really like the clear and clean interface, I love simple and non-confusing things
It has everything it takes to get into the toolbox of marketing
The incredibly fast customer service - The CS team is really fast (and personable, and friendly and helpful) when I have an issue
And I feel super well-taken-care-of
I love the way it takes out the extra elements in a mail like images and branding, and makes it 100% text
Which helps you get to the point and understand what need to be understood.

Cons
Their business approach is misleading - they actually alter the contents of your emails without clearly stating they will do so
The organization got very confusing when one person wrote to more than one of my accounts
It got worse when I wanted to write a new email to a person who wrote me at more than one account
Some of the more advanced features still need some work
I'd love to see tagging in notes (so collaboration would be smoother), or the option to add a call link into an invite directly (like in Google Calendar).
