Worst App EVER!!
Completely worthless & pointless! First off, this whole set up is deceiving... I expected my writing/drawings to be downloaded into the boogie board & transferred to my phone via the Dashboard app—not the case! Instead, you essentially take a picture of the boogie board screen & the app “scans” the image/etc. into the phone. As far as “scanning” the screen it’s almost impossible to get the boogie board in good lighting where it doesn’t get a bad glare & where the writing is visible. Then once I get the red dots lined up perfectly at each corner to scan, the scanned image is chopped short on one side. If this is how rudimentary this app operates you are WAY better off using Evernote, HP scanner, or any other app out there with “scanning” capabilities using the phones camera. This app has a long way to go before it’s even worthy of one whole star. Don’t waste your time.
The red dots for the corners that are required to do the screen capture to use the app do not happen 99.9% of the time. The 0.1% it cuts off an inch or so on each end. Just take a picture with your phone and save yourself the aggravation.
I also took their advertising "APP SCANNING FEATURE ALLOWS YOU TO SAVE, EDIT & SHARE." to be a direct connection. You cannot save anything. You can take a photo and save the photo, but you cannot actually save the drawing.
Really disappointing as I love the product so much I purchased this even though I already own another board specifically for this feature. I would have paid double to actually have one that does what this claims it will do. Wish I would have read the app reviews first.
Works for me. The trick is to back away
I'm not sure why everyone is having such trouble I held the board vertically, got the dots to line up within 15 seconds of my first try, and captured the full image of the first picture I attempted. I was able to write in other colors on it. This is going to useful for saving notes. Don't try to make the image fill the phone screen. Back away so it is 1/2 to 3/4 the size of the phone screen. Easy peasy.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
