Traveler is a dedicated drafting device for anyone who writes without the distraction – or temptation – of browsers, email, or notifications. Get in writing flow and develop more prolific writing sessions by separating the drafting and editing processes. When it is time to edit, your drafts wirelessly sync to the cloud for export into your software of choice. Push your productivity forward and tap into writing joy!
Draft now, edit later. Traveler is our most portable distraction-free writing tool.
This is the best writing tool ever. I still have to get the hang of it, being used to writing on my computer keyboard which has a slightly different layout (different language too), but it has allowed me to write several pages already without realizing it!
The leather sleeve is the cherry on top, since it allows me to put the Traveler away without worrying about scratches or dust, it was worth getting it.
Keep up the good work!
Excellent distraction free writing tool. Easy to handle and navigate. Thank you.
I feel free of compulsive email checking and also revising instead of pushing forward with new scenes.
I wasn’t sure if I would like the machine and jumped in as an incentive and reward to myself at a major life transition. My first impressions were mixed: I dislike the plasticky feel of the Traveler and I have a feeling that the light colored keys will get grimy fast. And, as many noted, the glossy cover is a famous fingerprint magnet. On the other hand, the feel of the keyboard is superb, indeed better than ThinkPad, which is high praise from me, because I have Hubert high-end mechanical keyboards connected to all my devices. The screen is excellent, too. And the device is indeed supremely portable and light, starts up quickly, and synchs to Dropbox without any issues. Despite the early misgivings about the plasticky feel, the experience of actually writing on this thing is transformative. Over the first few days I’ve written journaling entries, random notes, idea lists, and such. Something about being disconnected from the noise of the internet and yet writing on a keyboard (rather, than, say a fountain pen, another technology of choice for me!) is fantastically conducive to deep work. After a few days I’m certain that I’m keeping this thing and may be adding the bigger sister device soon.
Received the device last week. Easy setup. The only confusing part was Postbox but figured that out quickly.
Love how it backs up to Postbox and automatically syncs content over to GoogleDocs. It reduces effort on my part and is a great backup.
I can easily take it anywhere.
Love how I can open the lid and start typing.
A few downsides:
The lack of cursor keys. The shorcut keys for it are there. I prefer the actual keys as a touch typist so I don't have to break flow.
Spellcheck would be nice to have.
The pricepoint is a bit high. Overtime, I believe it will be worth it with the time saved by auto syncing and the lack of distraction in getting my thoughts down.
The screen could be bigger given the wasted space around it.
Overall, very happy.
