Apparently I misread the description...
When I read that this was a smart notebook I thought it was a digital device like a wacom tablet. Reading about uploading content to the cloud, added to that idea.
I was very surprised to receive a wipeable book with a whiteboard style pen, and to download an app that effectively takes pictures of the pages like any camera would! On re reading the description I realized I had missed the wipeable page description.
I've given 3 stars because although I was at fault for not reading the information thoroughly, I think the product title is a tad misleading and the product to me is not worth what I paid for it.
I will still get some use out of it as I do journal regularly and don't always want to keep my pages. It does feel good not throwing lots of paper out. If the product was more affordable I would be more likely to recommend it.
My view - rocketbook useful
I would like to be able to keep the special pen provided with the 'norebook' to be able to attached. Within the first 24 hours I inadvertantley use another pen to add a note!!!!!
I am pleased with the purchase
You can only use the pen supplied, the ink has to dry before closing the book, or it smudges. Not a great deal of use if you only want to make and save a quick note, might just as well dictate a memo onto phone, on any number of apps.
I am unable to write a report or review on the product as it was purchased as a Christmas present and as such has not been opened or used. As such I am unable to recommend the product
After Christmas I will be able to provide a review
This comes with a good Pilot Frixion erasable pen using black ink, cleaning cloth and full instructions. The pages are laminated so that you can clean the old notes easily, using the cloth dampened with a little water. You can transfer your notes to a tablet or phone for a permanent record using a free app for Apple or Android and there are plenty of pages (16 double-sided) for lots of notes.
I chose the A5 size as best suited to my needs but if you are not using it for more than shopping lists or short memos the A6 would be easier to keep in your pocket.
The only drawbacks are very minor. The instructions suggest that notes should not be kept on the padfor more than 1 month as the ink is less fully erasable after this time and may leave permanent marks on the page. Also I have no local supplier of Pilot Frixion pens so will have to send away for some but will take the opportunity to get blue and red anyway as they are easily found on Amazon or other websites. Perhaps a loop to store the pen on the notebook would be helpful.
Altogether a handy piece of kit, robustly made but slightly expensive albeit well presented with everything you need.
It does what it says on the tin.
It does what it says on the tin.
What functionality it had. What features made it unique. How other customers had reviewed it.
Needed something like this for work where customer information needs to be secure. The fact you can wipe it clean, saves on paper and time. Does the job perfectly.
Everything was explained perfectly in the write up on this product.
Works really great, bought as gift, Wife really delighted, well done
Compact, Stylish & Useful
Had not come across this product before viewing it online.
This will be fantastic for work and will hopefully reduce paper notebooks etc as I can just use this for notes and easily store them.
The compact size means it can easily fit into my handbag.
My only concern will be the pen; firstly, anxious about losing it and secondly hoping it will be easy to replace.
Impulse buy but tried it, downloaded the App and hey presto it does what it says on the tin. The OCR works well and used it sucessfully with Adobe PRO DC.
Now I want the A5 version.
To make it perfect a pouch or wallet would be a nice option, but very pleased especially at the offer price.
Superb for anyone that constantly takes notes during the day.
I was intrigued by the write up for this product. It arrived in good time. I have, thus far, only dabbled with it. I hope to make full use during the coming weeks and months.
My only criticism is the design of the notebook did not include a loop to hold a pen , otherwise a good product for the price.
Excellent product,can reuse pages or can store information.Small enough to fit in pocket .
This notebook is fantastic! Does exactly what it says it does in that you can draw, doodle or write notes and then store these either in the notebook (which had heaps of pages) or digitally. The app works perfectly and is accessible and easy to use. Would definitely recommend!
This is a really great alternative to paper and super-efficient.
Great for collecting notes and then storing them electronically. Also great resource for teacher diagrams, PDF and print them out. Then save a copy for later.
Make sure you pay attention to the size, A6 is pretty small for a notepad and I think a slightly bigger size would be more useful.
It's a bit frustrating that there isn't any sort of holder for the pen. Makes the pen pretty easy to misplace or separate and then the notebook doesn't have much use.
I must admit when I bought this notebook I didn't know about Frixion pens. You can get more or less the same result from a normal notepad and a Frixion pen, however I guess you'd get indentations on normal paper which this plasticised notepad avoids. Also you can use a damp cloth to clean off which is much quicker than using the eraser on the pen, and you couldn't do this on paper.
I haven't used the app so can't comment on that, but I can't see how much benefit that offers over something like Evernote.
Great idea - save some trees
I did my research before purchasing. But all the people I have shown it too want to have one - I should get commission!! :)
We have a world congress coming up in January 2020 and would appreciate a donation of a few books as plenary speaker gifts please.
Does what it says. I would prefer it bigger for making notes in meetings but it worth its money.
