Fix the pencast crashes!
I love using this pen and app for school. But the app crashes frequently, so a lot of my pen casts are split into a bunch of segments. I also find it incredibly annoying that when I unpause a recording on the notebook, I have to unlock my iPad for the recording to actually start up again. This pen and app have really helped for taking notes in grad school, but please work out some of these kinks on the app! Recently, my pen casts will stop and will not save, so I've lost several hours of lecture recordings, which is incredibly frustrating!!!
Update for Sept 2016 update: While slightly better with smoothness, the pen casts crashing and not saving is still an issue. Please fix this!!! It use to be that the app would say "your pen cast got interrupted", but has only done that once and has killed 2 or 3 pen casts since the update. Not only that, but now the app freezes when I try to listen in a pen cast. Seriously, how hard is it to make an app that ha tally does what it is supposed to do?! And not adding iCloud or device sharing capabilities is really making me regret ever purchasing this thing in the first place. Get it together!
Cool new features but buggy
I enjoy using my pen and am excited by some of the new features that have been added. The vector imaging looks nice and the full text export has promised as well.
However the app does seem to freeze and crash quite frequently. It also seems to take a long time to boot up. Pencasts often don't start at all or after a long delay. I have lost a few long Pencasts during key meetings which is very frustrating. I often switch to airplane mode and turn on Bluetooth when creating a key Pencast. I get the sense that other apps and notifications interrupt Pencasts so this seems to help.
It would be great if there was a "select all" button in notebook for you to allow you to export an entire notebook as a PDF. To accomplish that in the current structure requires physically tapping on every single page in a notebook which is extremely tedious.
App worked great but I think you can do way more to the app to helps students out including those with learning disabilities. I would like to see a automated file backup system added such as one drive that way if my tablet broke or got stolen all of my files are backed up were I can access them. Also would like to start seeing multi color options as well and a wirless mic option as well for those times were a lecture needs to be recorded but the room you are in is so large it would be hard to get the best recording possable. Also add support for one note to import both the audio and the live handwriting this way it would appear as native as it was created in live scribe making it easer to share in a class notebook
