A new old tool to free yourself from your bad habits

It’s an old tool packed in a new machine. It’s both intriguing and fun but also disappears somehow and leaves you alone with your thoughts and writing. Looking at a blank space. So interesting how we let ourselves be distracted all the time. It’s an awesome piece of gear. I’ve been writing much more, just enjoying the ride. Only bad thing is the lag, but the awkward feeling goes away overtime and even helps concentrating on the writing instead of focusing on the screen. Kudos Astrohaus! Put a light on your Traveler and I’m on it, to have both.

Life Saver (of my characters)

I never imagined having a typewriter would make such a difference. I'm only a button press away from continuing my drafts, and projects I wasn't sure I would ever finish, are coming along at a steady pace. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and this tool is keeping my eyes forward.

Thanks Astrohaus!

Amazing typing experience, needs fully offline capabilities

I love the Freewrite. I've written on it nearly every day since its arrival and I get so much typing done every session. The one thing keeping this from 5 stars is that you can't operate totally offline with it. I would loooove the option to be able to plug the Freewrite into my computer and delete files from it directly instead of through Postbox. I worry about what happens if Postbox ever goes down or I lose access to the internet for a while (especially in the long term). This is a big downside for me personally.

A distraction free gift from Heaven.

Have never been so productive than with my Freewrite. Was the best purchase I have made in years. Thanks Astrohaus!

Question about editing capabilities

I have had the Freewrite since March but have only used it once. I was hoping to be able to do actual editing on it, but that doesn’t seem possible. Am I missing something?
