Most popular feedback for Twobird

have been using the app for a little bit now and I have to say that it has been a good experience so far. Simplistic, conversational design which works because emails can be a mess. I will like to see the service able to connect to other email clients outside of Gmail which I would imagine is going to come. Also if there is a way to have a section that offers a team style message place where you can invite someone you been emailing with to a secondary workspace to share files and conversation within the app. I think that would be cool and with the app’s clean look it would work well. This is almost already there with the notes feature. Wishful thinking I think the devs on this are off to a great start. There are a lot of email clients that are out there that don’t deliver on making email simple and easy in terms of use. Looking forward to see upcoming features and how the app grows. Also please keep the app add free. Even if there is a one-time payment which is always the best or even subscription model so that the devs are funded and supported and we don’t get ads.

About Twobird

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. Illustration of confetti our opinions Picture of a card game being played by Ginger Labs staff The best technological tools, in our opinion, support focus and creativity while being strong and intuitive. 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.

Most popular feedback for Noteshelf

Noteshelf has a lot of great features, but, as an app, it feels like it’s trying to walk a tightrope between GoodNotes and Notability. Clearly, the app tries to take the best of both worlds and create a streamlined/simplified experience that it can call its own. And it mostly succeeds. In exchange, what you really get when using Noteshelf almost feels like “GoodNotes Lite.” The biggest advantage that Noteshelf has over the other notetaking apps is that it works on all platforms, including Android. Neither GoodNotes nor Notability are compatible with Android devices, which makes Noteshelf the best option for those that want to take notes and access them everywhere. Bottom line: Noteshelf is worth a try.

Twobird reviews

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.

- Chen Asraf

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!

- Cain Gantt

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

Noteshelf reviews

I have bought every note app availed, and this is so close to being my favourite! I genuinely think the handwriting is much better on this app than any of the others. The ONLY reason this is not a solid 5 star review and my go to app for everything is that there are some significant bugs specifically when attempting to insert photos. If this is not something that you need to do regularly, choose this app, it is the BEST! If you pull photos or screenshots into you notes on the regular, you will be annoyed at the process of loading the photo to the app, going back into the photo section, and adding the pic, not only is that mildly more laborious than other apps, it crashes consistently, Albeit the first pic of the writing session seems to always work, it is subsequent photo uploading that will not work consistently. For my purposes, this is a big issue and I use the app, but can’t let go of the apps like GoodNotes that in my option are inferior, but consistent in this much needed function. Many of the other bugs and glitches have been remedied so I am hopeful that this one will be to in time and I can give the 5 star review that it otherwise deserves and delete the other note taking apps from my devices. Fingers crossed!

I’ve used this app for the last 5 years nearly everyday. I take meeting notes in it, review pdf files in it, download sheet music into it and practice with it nearly everyday and make presentations from it on a daily/weekly basis. Here’s what I love about it. 1. I love the way it turns pages. It may seem like a minor thing, but for presentations it’s great to be able to flip a page and go to the next point. 2. I love the way I can create handouts in it. When I teach, my diagrams and flow charts are a hit with adults and students alike. 3. I love moving jpegs in and manipulating them. This allows me to create PowerPoint slides, move them into Noteshelf and add my presentation notes to each one. 4. I also like it’s improved search and filing system. I can find what I need. 5. I also love it’s free planner and free paper/notebook options. 6. There is a very low learning curve. Here’s what I wish it had….1. The ability to fill a shape with color. 2. A better calligraphy writing tool. In the old version, my printing took on a more flowing style. In fact that’s what drew me to the app in the first place. It made even my printing/writing look nice. I wish that remained the same. But those are minor compared to the other pluses.

Writing on Noteshelf is simply a pleasure, it is so smooth, the virtual pencil options are very elegant and well designed, it even seems my handwriting becomes (barely) legible. Evernote integration is very handy, much easier than exporting each note (though it could be much easier if you could set it to sync all new notes by default...), it was what made me buy it. There is one small detail that makes me continue using Goodnotes: the paid Mac app, which costs $9 (while Goodnotes offers it for free for its iPadOS paid users). Given the limited function a Mac handwriting app has (how many of us have a tablet, my older Mac won’t even run Sidecar), it seems really foolish to pay extra just to be able to see and export my notes from an app I already paid for. Change this and I will become an active user and an advocate...
