The hardware is great, the app sucks. I've been using the products for about 9 months now, and I can't complain about the slate and folio devices (I bought both), but the app REALLY SUCKS. When I open the app, the tablet connects and starts syncing, then it just stops, and then proceeds to replicate the last import as many times as there are documents remaining on the device. I use this for my class notes. This is unacceptable, these products aren't cheap, hire a competent development team Wacom.

I wanted this for the writing to text feature, as far as I can tell, it doesn't work. I happened upon the option to translate writing to text, I had given up on finding it. The videos are adds, they don't help at all. This is really useless since you can't search notes or tag, plus no writing to text. What's the point of importing pictures of your handwritten notes? Cameras work much the same way and you can tag pictures, so really it's probably better than this app.

Real pity - i love my bamboo slate, it's a great thing, but this app is just barely usable. 1) Who decided sorting chronologically (not inversely!) is a good idea? I have to scroll down for ages to see my latest drawings. 2) No indication of what drawing has which label, only visible if i open the drawing and click the label.. Wouldn't it make sense to overlay the label in a corner? I also don't understand what's the difference between label and group. 3) Quite clunky how to select a drawing or multiple - I actually only discovered it now while writing this review, I thought it was not possible. 4) No sync button/action 5) Happened to me twice that the device was not responding and had to be factory reset. It seems it got to do with the app, I think it happened both times when I turned off the device while being connected to the app. If I first turn off the bluetooth/location and then turn off the device, it works fine. Don't want to check if it's fixed as I don't want to risk again doing a factory reset, pairing etc. 6) Probably device related but it's annoying to only be able to sync to one device (apparently this is because there's some sort of a unique id that gets used and the device can only store 1). I'd like to try syncing to my linux laptop via Tuhi but don't want to keep needing to re-pair with mobile/laptop. For many of these, you just literally have to look at Google Keep and copy the functionality - it's pretty simple.
