slow and picky, but lovely

The slow response speed of writing or erasing text on the screen is not a big problem when writing, but it feels difficult when editing text. The small screen, which I was concerned about before buying, was not at all troublesome in actual use. It's a bit disappointing that it wasn't easy to find instructions for using Korean. But thank you for your kind and prompt help with my question.

Really enjoying my new writing tool!

I am someone who writes a lot, but not for fiction. Having an "eTypewriter" nearby (in my case, The Traveler) helps me when inspiration / ideas strike! It's especially great to have multiple folders with numerous individual documents that I can access and move between easily. And, I really love that "send" button , which lets me deposit drafts directly in my inbox as a PDF and .txt. file. Such a great investment!

Just Wonderful

This device is worth more than I anticipated it to be. Writing moves distraction free. I had no idea how much a computer was messing up my flow.

Easy on the eyes

So simple and elegant - I actually feel calm when I open it up to start writing - thank you for making such an excellent product. This is a *must of an investment for anyone serious about getting the book done.

Second Time’s the Charm

I’m loving my freewrite traveler! I bought one a few months ago that had a bit of a defect (the “/“ key malfunctioned, often appearing for no reason) but I was able to get a new one in perfect working condition without any issue. I love taking it to a cafe or on a little trip to write. It’s great for brain dumping, journaling, and getting big ideas down on the page. Couldn’t recommend enough.
