Quick thoughts. More comprehensive post to follow eventually.

  • Highlight button on pen is awesome
  • Wish it had an eraser mode or at least a quick undo button
  • They anticipated some things very intelligently, like ability to duplicate a tab (I use to flip quickly to refs)
  • Fast page flip is great
  • Zoom out is nice too
  • Pen calibration could use work, especially at edges
  • Manual pen calibration is stupid
  • Annotating with ink in boxes doesn’t work with Preview, crappy with Acrobat
  • I wish landscape viewing of portrait docs had annotation space on side, but that would be weird with PDFs
  • Box sync is ok but seems really slow
  • Need to figure out workflow with Papers for transferring back and forth
  • Color pictures obviously suck
  • Higher-res display would be nice
  • Ink shows up surprisingly fast but still is slow
  • Need more margin space somehow for notes
  • Wish it showed page number without bottom bar
  • Smart moving annotation bar is smart
  • Hand rejection is nearly perfect
  • Someone complained about 10-page limit for notes, but could try adding custom many-page PDF for notes
  • Can’t use it while it’s charging
