Ratings and Reviews
I bought the overlay and a 3 month stenodoc membership. Stenodock is connected on my computer to my ipad but will not connect to my Case Catalyst. I've talked to a computer guru who cannot help. The email for stenodoc support is DEFUNCT!! My emails are being returned to me. Grrrrr. No refund, and the time is ticking on my membership. That's pretty rough. Also, the app hangs up when adds pop up. It has also frozen completely occasionally. My main complaint is that even though I have the membership I can't hook up to see how it's really coming out. It leaves me with zero confidence in the money I've spent. Boo
Unable to use my dictionary
This would be a great program if I was able to upload my own dictionary. I use it to practice my briefs and since many of them are not in the preloaded dictionaries I look as if I've got a ton of errors. I do like that I can take my "machine" to my son's swim practice and also in my vanpool. I just really wish I could upload my own dictionary. Don't feel this is worth the money I paid.
App OK - Gel Pad Terrible & Not Returnable
Per the fine print on the shipping material -- once you order the very expensive gel pad to give some tactile response to the app -- it's not returnable. No refunds, exchanges or returns.
The gel pad is AWFUL. It comes in 1 format, so it will not match up to most common theory recommended wide key layouts. It's also much to soft, you are better off without it.
That being said, the application is decent. It does need the ability to export notes and global untranslates. What would be also helpful is a way to open the dictionary and do maintenance via the application.
Save your money on the gel pad. Until they allow returns on the item, I wouldn't recommend anyone purchase it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
