I haven’t received this yet!
Thank you for timely delivery of the product, considering it shipped directly from China. I love the concept/functionality of the book and the feel of writing is more like pen to paper (which I prefer) as opposed to similar product by Rocketbook, however, I expected the ink to dry quicker and it does not, and the software is not a user-friendly as Rocketbook's. Please advise if there is a pen that will dry instantly or quicker with the same erasable function. Regards.
It’s so cool! I love that it’s so easy to use and erase! I really enjoy it
Elfinbook™ 2.0 - Smart Reusable Notebook + 1x Pilot Pen
It's a great idea, but has a few shortcomings. For what it's worth, I ordered a four pack bundle from the Indiegogo campaign. We got two executive size notebooks (for my wife and myself), and two letter size (for our kids). Long before we received our notebooks, I installed the app and tried it out with the downloadable pages you can get from their website; I also ordered a pack of Frixion pens to try out.
Make no mistake: the magic here is really in the pens (without which this product simply wouldn't work) and the app. I won't review the pens here, but since the app is integral to the use of the notebook's reusability, I will mention a few things about it, but first the notebook.
It's an extremely nice notebook; the covers are very durable, the back is quite firm which allows you to write most anywhere without needing a firm surface to put the notebook on. I like the look of the pages; it's a grid of dots that helps you keep your writing and pictures from being crooked. In the bottom corner (left or right depends on whether you are on the "top" or "back" of the page) is a QR code, and along the bottom are a number of icons. These are used together by the app.
