Too many bugs. Once a new update comes out, the sync feature stops working until you update.
Requires location permissions and refuses to start without.
Permission for what???
Greedy permissions. Requires location and the ability to monitor and make phone calls. Refuses to run without these permissions. Claims they are for registration and 'news & tips notifications', neither of which should need these permissions. Edit: Requires access to all contacts to connect to Google Drive for backup. Claims this is needed to get accounts on device, which isn't true.
The pen and the app work better than had honestly expected. Very well thought out. Impressive how it instantly knows what page of what notebook you are writing on. After years of thinking that smart pens we're odd and not that great an idea, I suddenly realized that there is no tablet and stylus nearly as good as pen and paper. Simply having a portable digital copy and the paper original, and being able to email my diagrams without scanning, super. I started keeping one single Bullet Journal and this is perfect for that. I got the A5 wire bound notebooks, perfect. Wish there was a jump-to-page-no. function. That notebook is 150 pages long! Syncing Neo Notes between two devices is primitive. I use both tablet and phone a lot. You can do it manually with G Drive, but having to upload here, download there every time, FAR from ideal. Can't it auto sync? Can auto sync with One Note but I can't stand One Note. There are a lot of Windows tablets now, why no Windows or PC app?
The app is not working on my Moto G4. I've tried all troubleshooting I can think of, as has my partner. It cycles through startup screens, crashes, etc.. I've tricked the app to bypass the amalgam of ineffective windows, and even after the pen registers the app does nothing besides freeze and crash. It does work on my partner's iPhone though. I'm super bummed. I did a ton of research to decide on a smartpen before I purchased the Neo N2 and, well... Will probably have to deal with the hassle and return it.
Inconspicuous minor bugs were fixed, and app feature and performance were improved.
[Added] New "Pen Manger" function
[Added] Pop-up windows to warn the data usage in case of auto-save function is activated
[Added] Toast pop-up windows to pause pregressing sync after it reached monthly upload limit on Evernote
[Etc] Minor bugs are updated & stabilized
