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

I also use xTiles as a personal note-taking app and it really lacks a decent mobile version for this. Except for this, I haven't faced any other drawbacks.

About xTiles

xTiles is a cross-platform visual note-taking app for creatives and think tanks that works in both solo and collaborative modes. It enables creative minds to gather, visualize, edit, and store their ideas in one location, seamlessly transforming incipient ideas into solid and clear form. The benefits of whiteboards and text editors are combined in xTiles to create linear and multidimensional documents. With drag-and-drop, one can easily move objects and create an infinite canvas on which to transform space with no restrictions. The workspace can be organized in pinned notes, tables, tabs, and embeddings, allowing you to choose the best way to display the content. In addition, pictures, links to articles, and videos can be attached to tiles, adding other elements to the space and connecting them. This visual note-taking app's core philosophy is simplicity and clarity. It doesn't take long to figure out the basic and advanced functions for transforming data. The app's user interface is straightforward. xTiles features are extremely simple to interact with, with a focus on well-organized and easy-to-navigate space. Here, users can define their own tile styles, add bulleted lists, create quotes, and create multi-level documents.

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.

About Concepts: Sketch, Note, Draw

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.

xTiles reviews

I've been able to cut my time spend organizing publication materials for our blog almost in half. The ability to structure content with features like tiles drag&drop, combining tiles and nesting documents with my tiles is great. I like that I can collaborate with my team too. Together we use xTiles for planning our sprints.

I like the way we can organize our pieces of content in a document using tiles and tabs. We normally separate tabs for drafts and clean copies for our creatives. Subpages also help to store some inspirations and personal notes. A big plus is the ability to comment and get notifications when someone comments on your notes which is really handy for collaborative work.

- Aleksandra K.

I like how easy it's to use the tool. I can quickly break my findings into fragments using the cards (tiles) and move them around just like I need. Also I like the possibility of creating sub-pages. It allows me to avoid cluttering of the main page.

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!

- Andrew Keener

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!
