Review written with the keyboard. Judge for yourselves!

I'm quite imperial! You will see from the hut sentence that the keyboard isn't 100% accurate, but it's better than most, ant I will freely admit that my handwriting is pretty Lemker r
So, some issues, as you Can no doubt see, but overall, quite Impressive. (Not Imperial.)

Poor text manipulation (and even recognition)

It does well in recognising numbers and known words, however the moment I tried to write down certain abbreviations it has started to have problems.

Easy example, an email. First line, no huge problems. Then, once we got past the @, it struggled to recognise “uk” initially. Which is perfectly fine as my handwriting is not perfect, yet, the pain I had to get through to correct it was astonishing.

I scribbled over the unwanted text and it deleted right away - ‘perfect’ I thought. Well... no. Once I rewrote what I meant in the middle of the section, it started to try to merge everything together and twist letters to god knows what. It became a nightmare trying to correct anything.

Going back to my email example, the software seemed ecstatic about saturating my text with spaces, even though all my letters were as tight as skinny jeans. I again tried to rewrite it, but it kept on malfunctioning here or there. I never got the chance to explore how to manually delete those spaces or correct any spelling mistakes. And frankly, I am not planning to try.

I absolutely love the concept and I know that many people would be buzzing to have it, but at this point in time, this is not it. I see this as a good starting point, but a lot more needs to be done for me to consider this as a good investment. I want my money back.

Great but Sometimes annoying but not in a terrible way.

This app is great however, sometimes when I'm writing it adds random symbols which can be a problem when I'm in a rush. Overall this app is the best as its the only one out of duzzens that actually does what I want. Giving it a 5/5 because the cheap es & best SO far!!!
