I love my Freewrite Traveler as a single focus device. But not all of my writing is in English. It would improve my writer's life enormously, if you would offer Language Sets (in my case German) for the Freewrite Traveler.
This device is of great use to writers. In addition to having a nice design, it is portable, very light and, most importantly, allows us to disconnect, that is, to be free from the distractions of the online universe when writing.
We can write with it in public places like parks, cafes, etc. Best of all, battery life lasts several weeks!
And the Leather Sleeve is light and beautiful. It protects the device from scratches and is easy to carry everywhere.
For many years I was looking for a typewriter with a 'kindle screen'. I wanted to write comfortably and without distraction. I bought Freewrite with some hesitation, with the producers' promise to add Lithuanian keyboard. I got my Freewrite a month ago. I'm more than satisfied. Easy to write, simple to operate, no unnecessary features. I have written and published three books, and Freewrite is an ideal tool for the first draft.
P.S. I'm still waiting for the Lithuanian language :)
I write a lot. I write on various topics, from first draft research papers, to field notes, to role playing game narratives as the "Game Master" and short essays on whatever flows through my mind, the Trabeler is just great distraction free writing. It does exact what it's described to do and a great resource for those first drafts that seem to just never get on paper. So far I love it.
This has been the best thing ever! I’ve written faster and concentrated way more by using this amazing device!
dreams come true
So... I was a bit skeptical about buying the Freewrite Traveler, as I looking are a computer that just needed to turn on, that I could write on and use to progress my book-writing. I am happy to report that it definitely fits the bill!
The Freewrite Traveler is perfect to take wherever (I've taken mine places!) and it has boosted my writing so much! I have finished over 5 chapters for my book since I bought it (it's been about a 2 months) and it's dramatically increased my daily word count! (I'm not one to get distracted by notifications, etc. but it's nice not to have those dinging or distracting my thoughts every few minutes!)
Yes, it is on the expensive side; but trust me, if you want to speed up the writing process and enjoy it much more, then I'd recommend considering the Freewrite Traveler as your next writing tool! (Plus it shipped quicker then expected, so I got started on my writing earlier, sweet!)
The device is great and has helped me consistently write 1,000 words per day or more, but there is a rattling sound like a loose screw or broken piece. Very disappointing for the price.
Ich benötige im Durchschnitt 4-5 Stunden für eine Normseite pro Tag. Das liegt daran, dass ich immer wieder zurückgehe und überarbeite, bis mir jeder einzelne Satz gefällt. Doch mit dem Freewrite bin ich gezwungen nach „vorne“ zu schreiben, um den ersten Entwurf fertigzustellen. So schreibe ich jetzt sogar 4-5 Seiten am Vormittag, die ich am Nachmittag überarbeite. Ich bin so dankbar. Aktuell schreibe ich noch mit der QWERTY-Tastatur auf deutscher Belegung, das geht eigentlich im Freiflug gut, da man blind weiß, wo die Tasten sind (erkennt man aber auch bei langem Drücken der Spacetaste), aber ich habe die GERMAN Keycaps schon bestellt. Dann wird es wahrscheinlich noch besser. Also, das perfekte Schreibtool für alle Autor*innen!
Traveler Felt and Leather Sleeve
Well made, fits perfectly, and looks great. I'd definitely recommend this product if you've treated yourself to a Freewrite Traveler.
I love my Freewrite 2nd Gen. It is amazing to write on. For the price, I expect that it would sync my drafts to postbox flawlessly, but there have been some instances where a reboot was required to get it to synch.
I hope that Astrohaus continues to release updates to make the device very stable and dependable.
Excellent tool, I have increased productivity, and joy of writing. Now freewriting anytime , anywhere anything I want. Love it.
Software a améliorer
Fits well, looks good, feels sturdy. Could be further improved with a handle or shoulder strap to make it more comfortable to carry around.
I can't believe I waited so long to buy the Freewrite Traveler. It's been a complete game changer in terms of word count.
Spending time with the Freewrite is just as I had hoped. A pleasure, never to be interrupted, seemed to form almost immediately. Emails from Freewrite were helpful and pleasant. One in particular, warranty can be extended, came to mind and I acted to do so. This action spurred on by the now known and desirable feeling of writing on the Freewrite. Ah…….disappointment soon washed over my face, when my email asking for help to procure such protection of my new found bliss, died at the hands of a Freewrite representative.
The reason and the bullet that killed my faith in the company had now been delivered. The gunpowder used was “that has to be done in the first 14 days “ she said.
Now ends my heartfelt submission of the classic drop in the story line. Will I rise again aided by a Freewrite Calvary or not.
Time….. my new found nemesis…..will tell.
It's nice and fits my Freewrite perfectly BUT it 1,000% needs a strap or at the very least, a hole in the top for the handle to come through, especially for the price. It's not easy to carry when you are carrying everything else. I'm going to have a custom strap made for easier carry. But overall I do recommend simply for the protection of your Freewrite.
After writing very little since the release of my first novel I have struggled to write anything for my next novel. Since buying my Traveler I have written every week day morning for the past few weeks. There is no pressure on editing or spelling, it's all about the story and getting out. I love it.
Only one gripe, a back light would be amazing, but I just switch a light on and it's sorted.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who writes, leave the editing till second rounds, get your story out.
When I ordered this thing I was sceptical, but after a few weeks I wouldn’t be without it! Instant zen and focus.
It was such a portable writing device that allows you to just let the word flows without any distractions! Good for both personal and professional use 🙂
