Protect your Freewrite in style with the Official Freewrite Sleeve
When I ordered my Freewrite 'Sea' Edition, I knew I wanted a way to protect it and keep it in good condition. After all, it's as much a visual work of art as it is an extraordinarily practical piece of writing equipment!
The sleeve is extremely well made, and if you're planning to pack up your Freewrite and travel with it, you'll find this a smart purchase. If you are like me, however, you might want your Freewrite to have a permanent place on a dedicated writing desk but still be able to protect it from dust and the occasional tornado of pet hair from overly curious cats. (I've two.) Unfortunately, the sleeve doesn't really fit the bill here. As a result, I've tucked the sleeve away for the eventual day I'll take it traveling with me, but otherwise, I keep the Freewrite inside a dedicated drawer and only take it out when I'm ready to write.
I'd love to see an equally elegant cover option for the Freewrite for use while the device is on display, as it were. As it is, storing the Freewrite inside the sleeve is just one more barrier to getting writing done. After all, it is designed to fit snugly, which means you need to take extra care when inserting and removing the device, especially on the keyed side. This is why I've given the product 4 stars instead of 5, because it's currently the only available option for protecting the Freewrite, but it's not necessarily as practical in everyday use as I'd hope it would be.
It's fine for the cost. Still may look for a more durable case with a handle or strap. For the price it's fine. Will do, No sweat. Please keep it up!
Fantastic user experience, great feel and feedback. But not for most Russian typists! I bought this for my wife for Christmas (and as a test for myself to be honest). The experience is great, love the feel of the keyboard and the device works really well. However the Russian keyboard layout is the JCUKEN type, like a Russian typewriter, not the AATSEEL type (phonetic keyboard) used by most Russian speakers internationally. This allows them to type on a regular qwerty keyboard and still be able to tell where the letters are. Unfortunately, without this my wife can’t really type in Russian. If this could be fixed and the additional layout added (surely just a firmware update?) then this would get five stars. I’d also buy another Freewrite for myself!
