Love it
As a college student, the majority of my homework is online and any actual work that I do is not collected. This notebook (and the corresponding app) makes it easy to write out homework problems and not waste paper, it’s all stored in google drive (or whatever other cloud service you prefer to use). Plus, the update that allowed the PDFs to be bundled made it easy to keep homework and notes in one file for easy viewing and reviewing. The notebook itself is incredibly lightweight and while I do carry spare notebook paper just in case I have to turn in something that class, it saves me from having to haul around heavy notebooks all day (no lockers in college, you know, when we finally have more than 4 minutes to go to a locker). I’d say the only downside is that I do take a lot of notes and have a lot of homework so I fill up the notebook in about a week-1.5 weeks and scanning and erasing the entire notebook can be very time consuming, especially when you still have a lot of work to do, but it is still totally worth it for the amount of paper I save by having electronic notes. I really wish this notebook had been around in High School when I used even more paper, but I’m glad I have it for college.

Rocketbook makes the difficult quite simple
Rocketbook has helped me keep my notes organized. I’m a techie and as such, I’ve tried every major digital version of note taking, iOS apps, Apple Pencil 1&2, LiveScribe digital pens…. You name it. Everything just didn’t feel natural and I’d end up scraps of paper again as after decades of hard copy note taking and the tangible experience of it, it was my comfort zone. On a whim, a good price on Woot, I decided to try a Rocketbook kit. I was hooked. I could keep my comfortable method of note taking yet still experience the convenience of digitally stored notes. I find it easy to customize templates and using different colored pens I could continue with my tried and true note taking. I also find that when working in the field with clients, writing notes in a normal notebook isn’t obtrusive or distracting to them during meetings. Whenever someone starts using the iPad, inevitably someone thinks that person is zoning out and checking headlines. Rocketbook is easy. It’s economical. It’s convenient. It’s a workflow and organization tool that is transparent to allowing me to implement my classic method into a digital space.

Fantastic Concept and Execution
Absolutely love these notebooks. I have the 5x7 and 8x11 sizes and they are infinitely useful. You can send PDFs or jpgs, even gifs by scanning pages in sequence. With 36 pages per notebook, you can keep a fair amount of work before wiping down and reusing the pages. Additionally, the RocketBook website has printable graph, music staff, and lined writing pages in 5x7 and letter size; these obviously aren’t reusable, but are useful nonetheless. As a matter of fact, if you wanted to try the concept before buying one of the notebooks, you could print a few pages and try it out with the app first. I wish that this was around when I was in college; one small, light notebook for all of my classes that I can scan my notes from. The transcription feature also works fairly well, so your writing can be transcribed to type when you publish the page. The only drawback is that you have to use special Pilot Frixion pens, but they are readily available, relatively inexpensive, and come in many colors. (FYI, I use it with email and Google Drive and have had no issues. I can’t vouch for other compatible services: iCloud, OneNote, Slack, Dropbox, Evernote, or Box.)

Thank you from authors
Sometimes as an author I need that pen to pen feel to help the creative juices flow, sometimes there is a mental block when starting at a blank screen and trying to type. Also, sometimes you have an idea and need to get it down in a flash and your not next to your computer, your mini Bluetooth keyboard isn't charged and your mind is working too fast for texting your idea, Rocketbook makes it easy. There are more expensive options with no middle step of having to take a scan that you can get BUT, for the price, what this does and how effective it is you are in the best hsnfs with Rocketbook. I am soooo happy that I found them now just as they have implement OCR transcription that I REALLY, REALLY WANTED in this product, now I can upload into Google docs and edit from there. I don't care that's it's not 100% accurate, its at around 85-90% which is fine for an author as you know the story comes to life during edits, so I give this 5stars, I'm happy this far-you'll need to buy more pens dependent on how much you write but small price to pay, figuratively and literally.

Nice idea but needs to be developed a little more
I like were the developers are going with the general idea of the software, but to me it doesn’t feel fully flushed out. I can think of at least half a dozen things I’d personally choose to examine. Some quick examples off the top of my head might start with the following: taking a picture of a page (scanning it), it does so automatically. I’d love to know a way to make this be a manual picture snap. The app does this so quickly that I can’t even get the images into focus. Another thing I’d love, just love to talk about is when sending my notes somewhere, Rocketbook uses all these symbols to indicate were I’m supposedly sending them. Be it apple, evernote, wherever, (I’m totally guessing here)…. As a consumer/user of this product, I’d love some sort of key or description telling me what each of these icons means. Because I’ve been using this for over 6 months and I still don’t have a clue. My wife’s been using it for more than 3 times that long and she doesn’t know what they mean either. Like I said, this is a short list. I do hope the devs are still actually developing this thing and not resting on their bums with it. It could be really great. It just needs a little help.

Absolutely the BEST!!
This product is an absolute must have for those who suffer from ADHD, memory loss or forgetfulness, environmentally conscious, etc (as I am all of those I have just listed…and then some….lol😀) I’ve purchased more planners and notebooks- thinking I must have them, when I didn’t, and just never actually used them upon the first ten minutes of “newness” and then I forget I even have it, or forget to actually add anything of importance to said stuff. Well not anymore- I have purchased many Rocketbook products including the Panda Planner as well as the mini (pocket) notebook and executive notebook- and honestly I have never looked back nor purchased another planner since! I have gotten a few of my friends hooked on this product as well, and couldn’t be more happy with the overall experience of use and ease of using these notebooks with many different entry set ups, etc. I highly recommend this product to everyone, you won’t be disappointed! Promise! 😀

Worst App In Mankind
I recently downloaded this app a week ago and already have major problems with it. The functions of this app are exactly the same as modern phones. Which means it’s basically useless. Also, it is really not user friendly (unless you want to scan, which you can already do with your notes app in iPhone) since I had to spend literally about 30 MINUTES to merge a file, which was not even in the multiple “guides” in the first place. The most critical is the scanning function. You scan it, and, yes, it works, but not to a result you expected it to be. For example, say you want to make file, a very bundled up file at that. However, when you finish scanning the files, you have to see the abomination the app tries to do: making your bundled up file into little sections, which are mostly all out of order. The biggest issue of this is that you can’t change the order; you can only change the folder’s order once you merge, which means that all the file’s order can’t be changed at all. I have no doubt in mind that this app’s ratings were made by bots. Otherwise, everyone would be rating this down to a 3 star or less because of these “services”. This is a scam.

Perfect for Teachers
As an educator, I love the versatility and smart features of RocketBook. My go to is the RocketBook wave. I used to spend $50-$60 a year on a custom lesson planner. Even for the expensive ones, I still didn’t get it exactly as I wanted. With the RocketBook Wave, I can customize it to make it exactly what I need. I use the non-frixion pens for my basic borders of calendars and headings, but then use the friction pens to fill everything in. It is so nice to upload all my calendars in one space instantly. The most satisfying part is erasing it all and getting to use it again the following year. RocketBook is a company that is very focused on its customers. They REALLY listen to the feedback. A suggestion on the message boards for a while was lined instead of graph style dots as an option. Viola! It is an option to buy now. There are also the RocketBook beacons coming out soon after a very successful Kickstarter campaign. THIS COMPANY IS WORTH IT! They care. They are smart. They are evolving. I will never buy a notebook from anyone else.

Rocket Book is great!
So I’m on my second semester of using rocket book as my only note book for school and the paper less experience has made my backpack so much lighter. If you’re on the go and commute to school this is definitely a great mobile solution to weight and conveniency. I use this notebook for every thing. And the ability to have so many different subjects programmed in is great. There’s plenty of space for 16 credits of classes without the space or weight hassle of a regular five subject and one one subject notebook. The only problem I encounter is with the pens. While they dry very fast, they will smear if you touch them without giving them a couple seconds to dry. And since I’m left handed that means I have to pick up my hand as opposed to resting it comfortably on the page. I know it’s definitely not as easy to fix as a software problem but it is something that exists and people should be aware of. However the pros to this notebook vastly outweighs the cons and I think anyone can and should give this a try. The paperless experience alone is worth it!

Honestly life changing
I can’t put into words how useful this product is! I have always struggled with taking notes or capturing important information down, and then using it when needed or not loosing it. Phones and digital media have always been easy to organise and keep on me at all times. However opening my phone, then finding my app to type out a note, then choosing the correct location I would like to store, etc causing a lot of friction to just get the information down. Now I can take the note quickly, not loosing the thought or information and keep moving and later I can just snap a pic and it is where I need it and searchable with the option to have a text file made. Allowing me to quickly reference or access it when needed. Keep up the good work, also would love to see a notion integration with the ability to use markdown for formatting

Rocketbook Fusion
This Rocketbook has worked great for me, I love to use it for my math courses. I love that the scans are clear and put onto a 2D surface (there isn’t any awkward tilting or unleveled look to the scan that it would have if I had just taken a picture of my notes). Everything is really easy to send to what ever location I want to send my scans to. I do recognize a bit of a glitch or something here and there though. Sometimes the scans don’t show color (I like to use colored pens), or include a small portion of the surface around the scan when I took the image (once it looked like the scan included my pen that was sitting on the desk next to my notebook, not even on the page). Thankfully, that doesn’t happen often though. I don’t recommend using the eraser on the end of your pens, that seems to damage the notebook. I also wish the pens would last a little longer. But either way, I recommend this product and the phone app that you can get with it. It’s helped me a ton, especially with online schooling due to the pandemic situation.

Good alternative to an iPad
I am a pre-medical student and have found that I retain information from lectures much for effectively if I hand write notes, but then the issue is getting those notes into an electronically archivable format. I was seriously considering getting an iPad so I could use something like Notability, but the cost was prohibitive - I’m a non-trad student so I don’t get a lot of the grants etc to pay for school supplies, so it has to come out of pocket. Anyway, I decided to give Rocketbook Everlast a try, and I’ve loved it so far! The app will scan my Rocketbook pages and save them in a PDF and editable Google Doc format in my GDrive. The transcription is very good, but not perfect, which provides the excellent opportunity to revise the notes once they are inside the google document. I’m glad I decided to give this a try and save myself several hundred dollars! Definitely recommend for other University students!

Mixed Feelings
This app along with the Rocketbook I currently have were really good when I first had them. I scanned the stuff I wrote and was looking forward to not having to use so much paper for my notes and being able to scan it so I can have it all together online. Now the app won’t open for me at all. I tried deleting the app and redownloading it but that just led to my old scans being removed and it unlinked with my google drive (I have no idea why or how this happened but the Rocketbook file I had in my google drive disappeared so I lost old notes). When I redownloaded it it worked for a bit and I was even able to do a new scan but the second I exited out of the app and tried to get back into it I was back at square one. Been trying to get this app open for awhile now and was hoping an app update would help things but it hasn’t. In fairness though I haven’t contacted support and that’s on me. Personally I’ve just been too busy but I’m hoping this problem gets fixed soon but for now I back to regular paper. :/

Life Changing
I am a writer, however, the chore of keeping up with all of my brainstorming papers and notebooks where I just wrote down some ideas is awful. I had maybe 10 different notebooks that I had written ideas, snips of stories, or just a list of names, and those were all scattered. Rocketbook gets rid of the need to get a new notebook every time I fill one up and completely eliminates my paper usage. If you’re like me, you think better when you actually put pen to paper rather than typing. I don’t mind typing, but writing my stuff down or drawing out brainstorming diagrams really gets the juices flowing. I can now keep up with everything I write down. I use Google Drive for all my stuff too and Google Docs has text recognition so if I write out an excerpt for a book, I can use Rocketbook to upload it then convert it. I love Rocketbook and have been telling everyone I know about it.

Versatile, environmentally sustainable and long term financially sound
Love the Rocketbook experience. I started out with the Fusion and have since purchased the small notebook that I can carry in my purse, the notecards that I’ve found great for studying, the beacons so I can share ideas professionally from any whiteboard, and the Panda Planner to keep me on track with where I’m supposed to be and creating goals. I’ll never have to buy a paper planner again! There are so many pros to using Rocketbook products. Way lighter to carry around, easy to store digitally in several locations so you never loose anything, and environmentally friendly. I’ve used mine for research, scheduling, nite taking, meal prep, lists, and so much more. Extremely versatile and with the pens, markers, and highlighters finding your favorite Frixion writing instrument isn’t difficult either. I find myself using them all the time!

OCR needs heavy optimization
I use OCR, but would like to search my notes easier. I would like to use OCR with better functionality. The problem is I’m an engineering student, and OCR is optimized for English (I think). I understand it’s still a working process, but this company prides this notebook as being something wonderful for innovation and creativity. The sciences, like physics, help drive innovation, but when half the formula is Greek letter based OCR doesn’t transcribe well, if at all. I also can’t search my notes for formulas which is the most important thing I need. Also, please gather more writing samples of different styles, like cursive (if you haven’t). Basically, not everyone writes solely English character and in print. Plus the title naming OCR has yet to work for me: I wrote neatly, in print, and without any unrecognizable characters. Also, as this notebook becomes more popular could a bioplastic based notebook be used? Currently, the plastic can be recycled, but that doesn’t there aren’t better alternatives. (Except pages, most but not all accept this type of plastic.)

Getting a bit stale
Generally I’m a fan of the Rocketbook reusable notebook concept and the app. It’s easy to use, quick to capture pages, OCR works reasonably well, page labels and hash tags work without too much of a challenge. However, storing the scans locally instead of a cloud account (making them vulnerable to loss), and not being able to scan random style documents, magazine pages, white boards, business cards, etc. without the use of either the beacons or other tricks to simulate the border the app is searching for is starting to make the app feel outdated. There are other document scanning solutions out there that do a better job, their only downside is the need to flag a scan being sent this way or that after scanning, while Rocketbook uses the destination markers to automate the target of the scan. That’s a very low gain really over more capable scanning apps. Rocketbook needs to look at the competition and work on the app functionality ASAP.

Great app and product
I received a Rocketbook as a gift and have loved every minute of it since receiving it. I love that there are enough pages that I don’t have to worry about erasing a page so quickly and I can keep all of my notes organized with the app. I didn’t believe that it would actually work, but it does. I just can express how much I love the app and the ease of use. The only thing I either haven’t figured out how to do, or the app doesn’t do, is that I cannot choose to send to only one email address unless it is my account email address. I used my personal email address for my account, but want to send notes to my business email and it will not allow me to take my personal email off of the email list to send. I don’t use that option on my notebook often, so it isn’t extremely important but I could see where it could be with someone else.

Absolutely brilliant
I love the idea of this. I work in IT on the technical support team for an enterprise client. I oftentimes find myself using both a customer issued laptop as well as my company’s device. Unfortunately, I can’t easily share information across these devices. Because of this, I have often opted for a more analog note taking method. Prior to Rocketbook, I filled several Leichturn 1917s with notes on a large work project. Unfortunately, my copious notes were hard to search and reference, despite my detailed table of contents and journaling techniques. I was shown this technology by a business colleague and immediately fell in love. Now I store my notes in a variety of places. My only regret is that I can’t use it directly with either company’s enterprise OneNote/OneDrive account, but the other connectors help me merge everything together into one concise package.

Great app, fast scans
A few people have complained that this is just scanning. Although at times I agree I could scan my work; the app works a bit easier because I don’t have to be super accurate where I place the page. The shape and markings on the paper allow the edges to be recognized without having to line it up and press a button while oops I wiggled. Great concept. It does have it’s glitches: books wear out sooner than expected; the transcription is a great idea just needs some tweaking; email has stopped working; and the size and notebook options are limited. But good things too: customer service is quick to respond and very helpful and polite when they can’t help; books allow me to not have papers laying around; I love love love the frixon pens on the notebooks; the new smart titles allow me to not have to title the scan after the fact; and transcription option is useful if improved a bit.

It’s great when it works
For my studies, I am required to upload single PDFs. For 3 years now this product has performed the task effortlessly. However, in recent months, anytime I scan multiple pages to be uploaded as one pdf file, it is not doing so. Instead each page is being scanned individually and I’m having to turn in 5 PDFs as opposed to one. I have looked through FAQs to see if this is a common issue but I can’t find any answers. I would also love to see an option to combine individual PDFs into one single pdf from the review menu that pops up before each scan is sent to its destination. This might also be helpful from the history menu as well and would resolve the issues I’m having. Otherwise, I love this product. It keeps my notes organized and clean.

Awesome invention
I use the crap out of this! Especially in school. I would go through paper pads like not tomorrow with the amount of notes, assignments and projects for my classes. My only complaint would be it is not able to scan your writing and convert it to a text so you can upload in pages. I don’t like taking my laptop with me to work due to the area I work in and fear it will get stolen or broken with all the equipment I have with me so I hand write my assignments and type them up when I get home. Definitely be a time saver if it could convert however this doesn’t not stop me by far from using the product. I have recommended it to several people. Highly recommended can’t wait to see what Rocketbook may have in store in the near future. Easy to use, pen glides perfectly when writing and easy to clean off no special chemicals for clean up. Just simple cloth it comes with and water.

My penmanship is improving
Digital living had ruined my handwriting. I comforted myself that I wasn't wasting trees or paper, but I missed being able to jot things down -- or doodle! Now, I hand-write two to-do lists each day (one personal & one for home & family). I scan and preserve each both in the morning and at the end of my day (with check-offs, additions, etc.) It gives me a daily journal of both my accomplishments and my aspirations. And those unexpected things that come up. Why does this work better for me than all the lovely to-do apps I've tried? Dunno, but my handwriting is getting better. So I use my wee, pocket-sized Rocket Book every day. I haven't done much much with the larger one yet, but I'm sure I will. The app makes it very easy to send notes to different places or people. It's very cool and I've become a big ol' Rocket Book fan.

Great way to take notes
I've been using the Rocketbook Everlast for about a month now and have to say it's exceeded my expectations. I take a lot of written notes in my line of work that I need to archive for reference and backup. I can sometimes use MS Onenote or Notability (2 great e-note apps by the way) but there are times where its just more comfortable and easier to take written notes, especially when there are diagrams or you know you'll want to share the notes with others later. Rocketbook gives you the best of both worlds because you can archive your notes in a standard folder in your cloud drive or on one of your note taking apps. The only limit now is the number of compatible e-note taking apps. I'm hoping they'll being on some of the other note taking apps such as Notability soon.

There’s always something wrong
I took a long break from Rocketbook, but now that I am back I’m still experiencing issues with adding/changing my destinations. When I first started using the app, it took a bunch of attempts to get my OneDrive connected to Rocketbook. The app would constantly freeze at the stage where I was asked to input my OneDrive credentials. This time around, I am able to choose my OneDrive account since it is saved, but it still gets stuck at the stage where I should be able to choose my folders. I get the spinning wheel of death, aka the loading circle, that just keeps going and going and going without actually doing anything. I am also unable to simply go back to the previous screen/page. It freezes and I am forced to close the app and try again. I’m glad all my set destinations are still there (I’ve read some reviews from those who were logged out of the app and their destinations were deleted), but struggling JUST to add a destination is a massive deterrent. I was excited to use my rocketbook again, but holy cow is this app still garbage YEARS into its life. The company is out here developing new products, but what’s the point if you’re not investing in working out app kinks before users lose their data? (Granted, I know nothing about app developing and running a company. I mean no offense, I’m just really frustrated so I sound like a jerk.)

Great Alternative
Overall, I have no problems with using the app. Having an iPhone 12 and the latest version iOS, I've yet to see issues or bugs with the app itself. The scan layout is also simple and intuitive, to the point where even a child could figure it out. I really only have one problem with the app: Not being able to switch/reorder pages after you've scanned them. In rare cases, I'll have taken 3-4 pages worth of notes on my Rocketbook and scan them, only to find out that page 1 or 2 didn't scan quite as well as I'd wished. As a result, I have to rescan page 1 or page 2, but rescanning them would mean that the pages get sent to the very end of the entire scan, which puts my notes out of order.

I'm using it for class
The book itself is light and feels really nice to write on so I have been using it to take notes for my college classes. I personally feel that there are not enough pages in the notebook itself as it becomes full in just a week of notes/classes. what I am writing about, however, is that I would like to see a feature where when I scan, I click on the preview and it should take me directly to my most recent scan so I can double check the clarity of it in case my hand shook. at the moment, when I am scanning a bundle of notes, every time I want to preview my latest scan, I have to swipe all the way to the end of the bundle. That's the only thing I can think of at the moment. I'll update if I find something else, or if you actually implement what I described.

OneNote Integration Fails
I have tried to get Rocketbook to work with OneNote for over six months and it has never worked. When I finally reached someone in support, he admitted that they are still having problems getting it to work with OneNote. I followed every suggestion in online help and they do not fix the problem. The Rocketbook app just always says that it cannot access my notebooks. It has permission to do so, but it still does not work. The list of OneNote notebooks that shows up is also bizarre, but there is no way for me to figure out where Rocketbook is looking to identify my OneNote notebook library. Support is horribly weak, as well. It is almost impossible to get a response and, when it comes, it is long after you sought it. I have seen folks for whom it works, but it has never worked for me. It was a waste of my money and, to hear their support, they know it does not work reliably with OneNote and they cannot fix the problem (yet). It is a great idea and a great sounding product, but steer clear of you want to use it with OneNote.

Update: When the app doesn’t crash
Original Post: “When the app doesn’t crash, this is a great product. However, every time I want to upload my work, I cannot, it crashes or stalls. This is the only app that has this issue on my iPhone X. Please revert back to a version of your app that works, because right now it’s trash and I’m fearful that I’ll lose my unloaded work if I uninstall. Fix this!” Updated Post: After contacting the support line, they informed me that their last update was the problem and a new update will be available in a few days, which was true. The app works as it’s supposed to, and I even used a few tricks with the OCR. I would like to see if the OCR can recognize new paragraphs or line spacing, because it’s a bit jumbled when it’s emailed. I will give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⛅️ for now, because I believe it can be improved, but it’s a good starting point.

Unforgivable
I wish wish wish the founders, UI designers, programmers and marketing people at these companies knew how aggravating popup ads are, especially where they’re least expected - in an app that’s designed to enhance productivity and workflow. I so wish these people knew that the little extra step, an ad popping up, taking that tiny bit of attention and a window that now has to be closed, is not just one extra minuscule task in a person’s day but part of death by a thousand cuts that starts the minute a user wakes up and looks at their phone or computer, and doesn’t end until they go to sleep. I’ve spent now over a $100 on Rocketbook notebooks and pens -- looseleaf 3 ring, executive, mini, and the folio thing with the magnetic binding -- and still it’s not enough for them. I must be sold something while I’m using the app. Send me email marketing, fine. But please please please don’t have new product offers in the app. I just want to open it, take a scan and get on with my life.

OCR Doesn’t Work w/ iCloud
I so wanted to give this app/book combo a 5 star review. It does so so much, but the one thing I was really looking forward to was the OCR Handwriting Recognition that converts handwriting to text. Unfortunately this feature doesn’t work when sending your notes to iCloud Drive. It works when sending to email and google drive which is frustrating. iCloud Drive is my main source of file syncing so it’s a pain that I have to send an email or send the file to Google Drive first if I want a text version of my notes. Other than that I absolutely love this notebook. I’m so happy I get to save trees but using less paper and I really enjoy that I can use other colored pens as well. Absolutely great idea. I would love to come back and give this app a 5 star review once I am able to use OCR to covert my handwriting to text when sending my notes to iCloud.

Next generation notebook
My wife got me a Rocketbook after I sent her a post saying “check this out, looks cool!”. Lo and behold she got me one for Christmas. At first, I wasn’t sure if I needed it because it looked and felt like a regular notebook, with some minor differences. After a short while, I learn how to use it better. Started by erasing and reusing the pages. Then by scanning my notes and saving them to the cloud; then automatically emailing myself an OCR transcript of my notes after a scan; etc. Rocketbook is so easy to use that I didn’t realize how different and valuable this notebook is until it hit me after sending me a month worth of notes in around 10 minutes. For context, I have stacks of notebooks that never got digitalized because of how long it would take me to transcribe them all. But now I can edit, search, and share my notes. I can also write and create to-do lists for my phone. Another thing, the OCR transcript understands my handwritten notes better than myself. I'd only wish I could sync my Smart Lists with Reminders to access them from the Apple Watch. Or maybe a watch version of the Rocketbook app with Smart List. Nevertheless, this is a great product and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Used for document development - professional
This is been an amazing product. I am a technical consultant with multiple customers at a time. In my work, I was taking extensive notes on legal pads. I used to need a pad for each document I worked on. Even with that method, it was hard to find the information I needed and keeping track of all those notebooks was very hard. Now I can take notes, snap the picture, the document is automatically named and sent to the right folder on Google docs. I can search the document for the information I need because of the ocr functionality they use. Really great product. BTW, I have tried using an iPad for my notes a couple of years ago and went back to the old fashioned way. Rocket book works much better.

Great app, but could use a little polishing
I love this app and the corresponding “hardware”. Just let me say that first. I have a small pocket sized one and a medium sized one and they really are great tools for quick notes on the assembly floor and long notes from meetings or design sessions. I only gave this app four stars because I feel it is lacking a few things that a productivity app should have. Things that improve on-the-go workflow like a widget for instance. Also, customizable tags that save so they could be accessed quickly from a drop down tab to quickly tag things that are often used for organization. Also, just a thought but RocketBook and Rite In The Rain could do amazing things together if they would partner up and develop things that would benefit both target demographics. Just saying.

Great with some flaws
I love the rocket book, not so much the app. I have the ever last, and use it with an iPhone XR. I’ll start off by saying that I love being able to put my notes in the cloud, but the app has some problems. On every 5 or so pages you scan, the app has a tendency to cut off about a centimeter for the edges on a page. Also, the handwriting detection it a nifty feature, but for me it’s really a gimmick. Unless you have the most perfect handwriting, it gets totally messed up. Also, it only transcribes through email, so not as useful as it could be. There is also a problem where if you do a bundle scan of 6 or more pages, it won’t send to OneDrive. The recognition of the app is flawless, and it never captures the surrounding of the page, just the page. Overall, I love the rocket book, and the app is a good, but could be a bit better.

Conceptually Great - Often Frustrating to Work With
I love my RocketBook, and I love the concept, the OCR scanning, and the fact I can save to my own cloud destinations. However the app leaves A TON on the table for improvement. Now by no means would I ask them to do this for free, I know this app is funded by the physical product. But in a day where Adobe Acrobat can help you sort, separate, bind, add additional notes, and even allow you to save file names with special characters, this app is well behind the times. In addition, renaming files and sorting things by date is painfully frustrating as I do not have the time to take a photo of my notes in the moment. The beauty of multiple pages is ‘write now, capture later’ To improve the app, consider a subscription model. I’d pay for it! Otherwise, consider at bare minimum not clearing my file name field every time I accidentally add an invalid special character and add a way to split pages to save into different files from one scan session. Simple usability changes would really change my impression. It’s not preventing me from using my RocketBook, but I definitely dread upload time when I fill a notebook. A competitor could easily swoop in and steal the show with a better app. I yearn to see the improvements that can be made.

The notebook is good, the app is not
I’ve been using the notebook and app for about 6 months. It’s been an alright experience. As a left handed person (so my hand drags across my writing) with bad handwriting, the notebook can look messy. The digitalization from the app makes it even worse. Sometimes the camera refuses to focus and the writing looks blurry and illegible so I have to re scan the pages. This wouldn’t be a big deal if the app wasn’t infuriatingly slow. It loads to open the scan, it loads to scan, it loads to let me see what was scanned, it loads to delete the scan, it loads to go back to the scan. Over and over and over again. And you can’t reorder pages that have been scanned, so if there’s a series of pages to be scanned into one pdf I have to check every single one as I scan it instead of just doing them all at once and keeping the good scans. Otherwise I risk having to delete each page (individually) and scanning them all over again if just the first page was illegible. The issue is better when I don’t have any of the the enhancements on but it still is so slow even if I don’t have to redo anything. When I have 30 pages of notes to scan this is just not ideal. I recommend the notebook but honestly you’re better off using genius scan for uploading your notes.

Rocketbook Rocks!
I have a thing about not wasting paper, so the Rocketbook Everlast immediately intrigued me. I now own 3 of them to use for different purposes and absolutely LOVE them! They’re lightweight to carry, allow you to backup ALL your notes to your computer, and very durable. Also, the company is great to work with & provides excellent customer service. I had an issue and it was addressed within less than 24 hours. My only frustration is that there isn’t yet a cover of some type for the Everlast that you could insert it into and that would contain space for business cards and a pen so you’d have one thing to carry into a customer meeting & yet have all you need right there with you. Hopefully they’ll develop some kind of cover like that soon!

Love This Product and App
I absolutely love this product. I've been using this for both personal and work related note taking since I got it. Simple to use, scans are great, and it functions exactly as advertised. The Frixion pens work great. Writing with them on the Everlasting feels smooth and natural. The included pen works extremely well, though the pack I purchased because I wanted the other colors seem to work marginally better than the included pen. I would recommend grabbing a pack of them for the flexibility of the extra colors, if not for the slightly smoother writing. All in all it's one of my favorite tech products of recent years. I raved about it so much a friend ended up buying it, my sister bought one for her husband, and I bought my dad one. Thanks Rocketbook.

Low Tech Re-thought
I travel a lot for work and taking notes on my laptop is the easiest way to ensure I have a file to share and format for a report. But laptops run out of battery; outlets are lacking or inconvenient; start up takes time; the process can be noisy; and if there is no good WiFi, the file can be lost with a sudden shutdown. Rocketbook allows me to take notes in a more friendly and interactive manner. I can share them immediately from phone contacts and email or text. The OCR works well enough to enable me to get a good start on my report. Plus, my notes are filed to the project so the whole team can access them. They are not hidden in my private notebook. The one downside is the need to write legibly to get a really good OCR translation.

Really wonderful product and App
I love my Rocketbook. I use it practically every day at work. It’s saved me from having to purchase countless notebooks and journals, and the ability to take a photo of your notes to keep digitally is awesome. I work as a funeral director, so I’m constantly taking notes of what the family’s wishes are and what needs to be done, and being able to scan my notes and send out to colleagues for assistance is an amazing way for us to all stay on the same page. The app is extremely user friendly, not hard to pick up at all. The transcribing feature doesn’t always get everything right, but I also have very tiny and messy handwriting, so I’m assuming it’s more of a user error than app error. Overall very pleased!!!

Amazing
I do a lot of game design in notebooks or loose sheets of paper and I always end up with tons of iterations laying around taking up space. Scanning or photographing all of this and then destroying the physical copies or taking time to compile PDFs from all the photos is always a pain. Enter Rocketbook. This notebook is amazing! I have three now and use them exclusively for all my design work and sketches. I can then use the app to take images, create PDFs, and then instantly send them to my backup (Google Drive), my email, my business partners email, and our shared work drive. It’s amazing! Then I can wipe the book clean and continue designing. No extra papers laying around, no shredding papers, nothing. So nice. App is great for setting up destinations and reviewing what you’ve captured. I love it.

Love it and bought a second
I’m a list maker. A serious list maker. I start every day with a cup of coffee and pen and paper to create my To Do List for the day. Until now, I’ve used a simple composition notebook for my lists. I’ve downloaded so many apps, trying to find one to meet my simple list needs, but have always returned to my notebooks. No more! Rocketbook is perfect for those of us who make lists, save lists, and refer to past lists. It’s easy to use right out of the box. It offers me lined pages or dots, and I use both. I like it so much I ordered a 2nd Rocketbook (the mini) to carry in my purse for quick notes. It’s a simple step to save my lists to my Cloud of choice, or share it in email. There is nothing I don’t love about my Rocketbook!

Good Concept But...
I love the concept but two major issues: Poor OCR and no synch between devices. Apparently my handwriting is too difficult for the OCR to work effectively as so far it has yet to pick up more that about 50% of my scribbles accurately. Another issue is that pages scanned with my iphone will not show up in my ipad (Other than Smart Lists). So my plan to use a small note book and phone in the field to capture notes and then update on my ipad or mac is not possible without forwarding from my phone to my other devices. Would be nice if they automatically synched over icloud. Lastly, would prefer to be able to use any writing device other than the rocket pen. Will keep coming back in hopes they improve the system but until then - good old pencil and paper and finalizing notes once a week is still my go-to method.

Awesome notebook
I am someone who makes a ton of lists and just writes down random things that I need to look up later in the day and this notebook is so convenient. Instead of having a lot of scraps of paper just floating around in my purse I can jot everything down in my Rocketbook notebook and scan it to the app for later. The ink does take a few seconds to dry but it’s not a big issue. I currently have the mini but will soon be purchasing the executive. I am currently waiting for the new product for the whiteboards and I’m excited to be able to scan our whiteboard ideas/ drawings to the app as well. The quality of the scans is really good and I have a couple of apps tied into the Rocketbook app where I can send my scans as well.

So far so good
I have been using this app for almost a month now and so far everything seems to be going pretty well. It has definitely helped me stay organized by scanning everything into its proper folder and I love that I am not going just wasting paper, I can just continue to reuse the notebook. The only thing that I do not like is that it does not allow me to scan multiple pages into/ as ONE pdf file. Each page is its own individual pdf file. When I scan on my adobe app, I can scan multiple pages and have the option to all be on one pdf file, not each page be its own, like on this. I constantly use my tablet to go over my notes but if i take several pages of notes in class in one day I have to switch back between all the different individual files. I hope a new update could fix this!!!!

Pros and Cons
I have a Rocketbook, so obviously I had to get the app. It takes a while sometimes for the scanner to realize that it is looking at a page, and it’s a little annoying that my Rocketbook itself doesn’t have a cleaner way to write. When I try to wipe my Rocketbook (the way it says in the instructions, with water and the cloth), it ends up smearing or smudging color onto the rest of the page. It gives the pages an uncomfortable tint. Other than those I think my Rocketbook is amazing, I suggest it to anyone who fills up their notebooks quick and needs something more reusable. It’s also great for studying, especially in the older grades (upper high school, university, and college). They can last for years, and they are just great in general.

Loved it at first, but needs a few tweaks to keep it useful
I was initially very excited about the Rocketbook. I prefer to hand write my notes, but want to have them with me on my devices. I like the reusability of the Everlast pages. I would like it if you made these pages with 3 holes punched in them for use in a 3-ring binder. I have used an Everlast page for my To Do list at work. I cut the rough spiral edge off and glued a page to part of a sheet protector to make my own. Unfortunately, I have to glue it again every few weeks. I also would like to be able to scan directly to my Files on iCloud. I don’t want to have to download/move files from email or the Rocketbook folder on iCloud. There is a different scanning app that allows me to save PDFs directly to my Files. Then I can have them in the folder I want on my Mac and on my phone.

Wow, so bad
I spent a couple of hours trying to get my handwritten notes into Notion. Ended up taking a regular photo with the camera app and within a few minutes had a more satisfactory result than this app was giving me. I tried the iOS send function (the recommended approach for Notion), then tried a few other indirect routes using IFTTT. Most of these options don’t offer OCR, which would be the main thing I’m looking for this app to do. OCR is working going into Google Drive and OneNote, but IFTTT isn’t pulling the text from either one of them. Being able to at least see the image of the handwritten notes in Notion would be a decent workaround, but none of the options I tried give me that, either. They all just provide a link to the PDF - and it isn’t even a live link. (That’s the part that kills me.) So I guess I’ll just be using my Photo app, which at least embeds the photo in Notion in a viewable form.

It’s ok
I wanted to love this product/app. Two issues preventing it from a higher rating from my experience (note - I’ve only been using the Rocketbook and app for about 3 weeks, if these issues improve, I’ll post an update to my experience): 1. The overall scan/transmission/send process takes too long to rate a higher star. It usually is taking me around 10-15 seconds per page to complete the steps necessary for file to be sent. Adding that amount of time up per page....it takes too long. 2. I have had a few instances that the scanning fails to complete altogether. I’ve reattempted the process, which usually works, but again, for the process not to work consecutively, it doesn’t meet my expectations. I realize 3 weeks is still a short amount of time to base my experience, but I believe for someone who hasn’t used the product before, realize ahead of time what some of the cons are. Aside from my issues, I do like how easy the concept is, and the scanning is easily readable after it completes the transmission process. I’m going to continue to give this a chance, and crossing my fingers the issues I listed are due to “user error/dummy” and will repost in a few weeks of my ongoing experiences.
