I really love how it helps me concentrate on the plot and the writings, and the “send” function is very useful to me

Almost Great!

This has been a great purchase and I love using my freewrite everyday. It has everything that I would have asked for and nothing that is missing. Actually I like the fact that there are no arrow keys - really prevents me from trying to fix the typos etc. The keyboard is beautiful and very enjoyable to type with, battery life is long enough to last almost a week, the e-ink screen is beautiful, and sync/email is a lifesaver compared to Alphasmart I used to use. I only wish the service allowed a direct Dropbox/Google interface without a need to go through postbox. I don’t have anything against postbox except concerns that it doesn’t have even basic security features like 2 factor authentication. I hope that in a future firmware upgrade the need to go through postbox will be removed. Overall, delighted with this purchase.

Good concept/Needs some tweaks

The two "new" buttons are in a too convenient place and you can easily delete your draft. Upload often! I know the point is to just write but for the occasional oops in spelling or punctuation out would be nice to be able to move the cursor without losing your whole document. Overall it's a nice beginning.


Freewrite Smart Typewriter (2nd Gen)

Changed The Writing Game

I’ve been writing for years, both for school and for myself. Even so, nothing has kept my focus like the Freewrite. With this, I have been able to double my word count within the same half-hour writing bursts as before. The no-backlight option does wonders for my eyesight as well. No more eye strain when writing! I have absolutely no regrets purchasing this genius invention.
