"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."Sir Richard Branson
We give the use of technology to humans a lot of thought. With the help of our initial software, SoundAMP, iPhones might be used as multiband digital hearing aids to assist those with mild to severe hearing loss. Based on the realization that the iPad permitted a new sort of note-taking, particularly with increased review and replay of notes made in a class or meeting, we released Notability, the first app of its kind, in 2010. Millions of kids, families, and individuals throughout the world rely on Notability, which is consistently listed as a top selling software in the iOS App Store. Our success with Notability inspired us to consider further demands for better, more straightforward digital experiences. What if we could eliminate the need to move between apps for communication and everyday tasks? Illustration of confetti a picture of lunch at the work lunch table by Ginger Labs workers We had a lot of experience with notes, but we desired an inbox experience that combined notes, reminders, and email. We believed that since our digital lives are interactive and collaborative, so should our inboxes, which should compile all of our information for easy access in one location. Our team has been developing, testing, and breaking numerous concepts for a better communication channel for more than two years. The outcome is Twobird, a novel email app that is currently accessible on all significant desktop and mobile platforms. In order to assist users focus on what's most crucial in their digital lives and comprehend material more quickly, our goal is to develop cutting-edge apps that accommodate all learning styles.

Technology can and should work for you, boosting the interactions and information that are most important, not for it to be the center of your day, in our opinion.
Lacks colors and palettes. The app is good, but you can only use a selection of colors (unlike the version for apple). Yes, I know it is a "work in progress", but it is something that hinders the experience a lot. Apart from that, I like the app as a whole. If there were other types of pencils (like watercolor pencil), blender and the color palette, I wouldn't be able to complain.

The flexibility of Concepts makes it a great place for thinking, planning, and creating. Draw storyboards, product sketches, and design plans, then share them with friends, clients, and other apps. You can also doodle and write notes using tilt and pressure. Designed specifically with the most recent pen-enabled devices and Chrome OSTM in mind. Because Concepts are vectors, each stroke can be edited individually. Whatever writing implement you choose—pens, pencils, or markers—if you make a mistake, you can easily correct it using the Nudge, Slice, and Select tools. Incredible people working at Disney, Playstation, Philips, HP, Apple, Google, and Unity, as well as Illumination Entertainment, use Concepts to bring their ideas from the conceptual stage into the real world.
The interface is great: I like the low priority & unsubscibe, and the inbox is organized, simple and easy to look at. Unfortunately, the app is missing MAJOR features: PDFs (and many other types of attachments) can't be opened, and no attachments can EVER be downloaded (to open separately maybe), multi-selection doesn't allow most of the important organization features (labeling, moving, setting reminders), so you have to go into each one manually and do the things, also no way to print at all.

Great app, great cross-platform support. Still lacking a few key features that would make it a no-brainer. E.g. I have a Google account with more than one alias set up, but I have to remember to manually select which alias to send an email every time. (Thankfully it automatically selects the right one when replying, but not for forwarding.) The calendar support is there, but I'd love for it to support event colors since I color code many events on one of my calendars. Great potential!

I cannot wait to see how this app evolves. Things I love: - The texting-like interface---makes email feel like less of a slog - Markdown!!! - Free but with premium features, including snoozing, send later, hiding external images, etc. - Notes!!! Things that could be improved: - I don't love the interface aesthetics: --- (1) the font is chunky (especially in bold); would be amazing if there were options here. --- (2) the color highlights are dominated with eye-wateringly bright pinks and purples. I'd love to be able to turn off colors. --- (3) the icons are a little oversized

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.

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!
