Uneventful App cuts 1" off the top. So if you have anything on the Boogie Board that's less than 1" from the top, it will be cropped out of the image/photo taken by this app. Plus the quality of the acquired image looks like an 8bit scan. You'd be better off simply using your phone's camera to capture the Boogie Board screen. Actually, you'd be better off if you hadn't purchased a Jot e-writer in the first place. The Sync is their only product that appears to have any practical usage for a consumer.
Works... Picture Quality is Horrendous While this app works and does a decent job of automatically recognizing the boogie board, taking a picture and isolating the contents of the board, it does a poor job of converting the image to something of usable quality. Images saved to my phone were less than 600x1000. Horrible, absolute crap. Devices these days have high resolution cameras and decent processing power. This app needs a lot of work until it becomes useful.
trash app app is completely useless. might as well take a photo with my camera and save it to a folder; it was nowhere near the quality advertised when it did correctly take the picture. If you perfectly align your camera with the board itll either take the picture too close up or too zoomed out. too much work for something thats supposed to make note taking more convenient. auto didnt even work, the board might as well be a fancy travel sized whiteboard that picks up your hand prints on the background.
App needs major improvements Like others have said, it doesn't work well at all. Auto doesn't capture, manual gets a pic of part of what's written on the board. Was excited to be able to save lists to my phone. Why isn't someone fixing the issues, seems like bad reviews have been coming in for a while. Uninstalling until it works better.
It does exactly what I want it to do. After reading all of the negative reviews here I was dissuaded from trying Jot and just used my smart phone's camera for occasional saves. Finally I decided to see for myself and I feel it does exactly what it says it does. I am an artist and use Sketchbook Pro on all my devices, but the boogie board is delightful to use for making quick notes, sketches, calculations, etc. It is amazing how many uses I have found for it.
Very useful and practical app! I use it to jot down notes prior to any exam. Since I (and the rest of the free world) always have my cell phone glued to my hands, I take full advantage of the time it would take to scroll thru useless social media feeds to instead go over my notes. It's usually a quick process that helps to keep relevant materials I've learned in the forefront of my mind. I would give it 5 stars if there was a folder system to help organize my notes. Otherwise this is a very useful app for various purposes.
