Traveler is the ultimate *portable* distraction-free writing tool and the latest addition to the Freewrite family.
Turn off distractions. Focus your thoughts. Simply write wherever you go.
I do not consider myself a "writer", nor do I aspire to be one. I edited a book a few decades back and published a number of articles in professional journals. I think I still have a few things to say, and the reviews of Freewrite resonated with me. When I'm on a computer, I'm going to check my work email. I can pretend I won't, but I will, and that next article goes to the back of my mental queue.
Freewrite isn't just distraction free in that it's not going to open email or Slack or Teams. It's distraction free because it's designed for you to write with as little formatting baggage as possible. Open it up, and go. If you can use a typewriter, you can use this. It doesn't take five minutes to boot up, you're not fussing with formatting or typos-- you just write.
I'm sure there are full-time writers and professional authors who love this for the same reason, but you don't have to be either to benefit from popping open the cover and just writing. If you write one professional or academic article every other year, it's still worth the investment. So glad I found Freewrite.
If you are looking for the ultimate drafting tool, this is it. I debated for YEARS about purchasing this and my only wish is that I would’ve gotten it sooner! You won’t regret it.
It took me years to finally purchase the Freewrite Traveler, and I am SO happy that I went the extra step to make sure it stays in great condition! Definitely a must-buy in my opinion.
Product is exactly as described. Keeps me from getting distracted by social media. Easy to operate and backs up to my Google Drive.
I love everything the team bring me, except the IME system... so I write a looong mail of feedbacks for IME on Sep. 1st. Hope a new version of IME can be seen within a month, maybe? Until then, I can type with my Traveler again.
