Top critical review
Inside good, outside really bad
10 December 2018
I purchased this product a year ago and I've used it on a regular basis during that year so I believe I am now in a position to post a review.
The pages inside the notebook are a little plastic like but not to an off putting degree. It's sort of what I expected, a non-porous surface. I like the grid marked on each page which I think is of some assistance when writing or drawing. The grid is visible but not distracting.
The app has improved during my use and is simple to use and does exactly what it should. Pages get uploaded to cloud storage or sent via email, whatever your preferences, without a hitch.
When you have uploaded or finished with a page, it's a simple job to clean it with a damp cloth. Once it's dried, a bit of dry tissue can speed up the job if you're in a hurry, you're ready to go again.
All good so far.
Now the bad news.
During the life of the notebook, a year so far, the covers, in particular the front, have become distorted. They are now far from flat, each has a definite curve. I have tried bending the covers back, I have tried pressing the covers flat with heavy weights for prolonged periods. Nothing seems to work because, sooner rather than later, the covers are curved just as they were before.
It's a shame because other than that issue I was very happy with the product. In all honesty, I am unable to recommend this notebook because it's become a pain in the bum.
UPDATE: The seller has contacted me. Apparently there have been a certain number of notebooks from one production run which had issues with the covers curling.
They have promised to provide me with another notepad. That's certainly increased the customer service kudos. I've updated my rating from 1 star to 2 stars. I will update again when and if I receive the new notepad.
