Terrible app... Needs a lot of work
It is strange that the app is so terrible because the physical product that I purchased in the store is actually very well-made and well thought out. I totally agree with the other reviewer with the screen name “KLD505” that the app needs a lot of work to make it a quality app. I could get the app to put the red square is in the four corners of the boogie board, which made me think that it was going to capture what I had written quite well, but the software crops all four sides: top, bottom, left, and the right side. All four sides get cropped significantly. The left and right sides get chopped off about 3/4 of an inch on each side, And the top and bottom both get chopped off about 1/4 inch each. Another strange software glitch is that when you rotate the phone to capture the image in a horizontal view or landscape view, the resulting scan is projected on the phone in a vertical orientation which is such an easy thing to prevent in my opinion. You would be better served by capturing a photo with the camera and organizing it in that camera app or another app. — January 2019
Worst App EVER!!
Completely worthless & pointless! First off, this whole set up is deceiving... I expected my writing/drawings to be downloaded into the boogie board & transferred to my phone via the Dashboard app—not the case! Instead, you essentially take a picture of the boogie board screen & the app “scans” the image/etc. into the phone. As far as “scanning” the screen it’s almost impossible to get the boogie board in good lighting where it doesn’t get a bad glare & where the writing is visible. Then once I get the red dots lined up perfectly at each corner to scan, the scanned image is chopped short on one side. If this is how rudimentary this app operates you are WAY better off using Evernote, HP scanner, or any other app out there with “scanning” capabilities using the phones camera. This app has a long way to go before it’s even worthy of one whole star. Don’t waste your time.
Great Concept Terrible Execution
This has such awesome potential. I do not know if they gave up during development or on determining the updates to make the app sustainable. The required four dots are simply next to impossible make appear. Without simplifying image capture other features are worthless. I would rather take a normal picture of the board then spend literally 15 minutes contorting myself and trying to stay still enough to get the required four dots to appear. The how-to and customer support are also hard to find and do not help identify or address the right issues. I had to spend hours figuring it out on my own. Once I did I do not think I will ever waste the time again unless they do significant updates and fixes. I hope they do. It would bring more value to buying their physical product.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
