  • Very Frustrated & Disappointed

    By variableman23
    I bought the Moleskine pen three months ago and fell in love. The transcription function on the app worked really well, fulfilling a life long dream to save my handwritten stories in a digital format. I recommended the pen to everyone I knew. I used the pen every single day for work. Then, in March 2019, the company updated the app to version 2.5. The pen still photographs my handwriting perfectly, but the new version of the app is not capable of transcribing my handwriting anymore. I wrote to Moleskine customer service nine times to explain this very specific problem, but they would not help me return to the older version of the app that I loved. The final email from customer service left me in the cold: “we do are not able to see any defect on out app from our side.” I can no longer recommend this app to anyone looking for transcription. I am deeply disappointed after enjoying three months of great work with the app and then losing my favorite writing tool with a single app update.
  • I still want to enjoy it

    By jill3478
    I love moleskine and while I wanted to love the pen, this app needs updated badly. There are so many up and coming note taking apps that I can’t connect to because of the way the app is setup. Even in Evernote, it’s limited. I also tried Adobe Creative Cloud, but the color in the notes is gone. Overall, updating the app for a smoother experience would help.
  • Almost There

    It would be wonderful if I could backup on iCloud and Notes.
  • I Love This App

    By Happy Planning
    I have shared this app and smart pen with all of my coworkers and friends. I love that as I write on paper, it uploads my appointments into a digital planner as well as into my iCal. I also love that it uploads in to Evernote and I can access my planner from anywhere. In a perfect world, I would like the pen to be skinnier and more comfortable to hold as well as I wish it is a gel pen. I also wish the planner could be tweaked to include 15 minute increments all day for the schedule and a notes page opposite of the planning page. Otherwise, this is amazing.
  • Doesn’t Work With Office365 (OneNote)

    By westerdave
    I just purchased the Pen + Ellipsis and tried to link this app to save written notes to OneNote which is part of my Company’s Office365 subscription. I’ve come to discover that this will only work with personal Microsoft OneNote accounts, which makes it worthless in a business setting (at least for my purposes). I was able to get the windows app to recognize my corporate account but it isn’t compatible with OneNote. I did plenty of research and this was not readily apparent anywhere. I found language well into the support site while trying to troubleshoot. Just got off the phone with Moleskine support to learn that none of this is returnable because the package has been opened.
  • Just another overly complicated writing app

    By Justinr9999
    It syncs with Evernote and some others, but they require access to read your notes and the privacy agreement was broad and complex, in addition to the fact that I had to agree to something they did not provide a link to read. Sounds like a scam to mine my notes. The app itself does not do handwriting transcription, so you might as well just take pictures for free of your notebook pages because that’s all you get out of this device. Your notes won’t be searchable, but they will be backed up. This may be worth it for some, but for me I’d rather use my pencil and a plain old notebook and take pictures of very important pages for backup rather than complicate my life with pen charging, etc. What if I lose my pen or leave it at home/work? Additionally, the notebook has pages protruding from the sides to make it appear like a tablet (lame). Without hard cover protection, these will only get destroyed in my backpack and daily life, much as the robust edges of the old style notebook. I’m returning the pen and the notebook. Poor design, poor implementation, lack of features. This seems more like a public beta test to me. Once features to transcribe my handwriting are implemented so I can search my notes, I’ll give it another shot.
  • Needs to synchronize

    By DebDAG
    Though I love the concept, this app needs to synchronize between my iPhone and my iPsd.
  • Close but no

    By JKHewett
    The pen works great and syncs to the app without a problem. The calendar integration works well. The problem comes when you try to share with any other application. It doesn’t matter if you try as txt, pdf, or graphic the app cannot share to any other application. My reason for trying this app was to take notes that could be shared with my team. No such luck.
  • Book Disappeared

    By Symphony2
    My third Moleskine book disappeared. When I synched my pen it began to overwrite a previous book, thereby making those pages unreadable.
  • Horrible

    By AIAA
    I just got this 2 days ago. I don’t even know where to begin, and how to describe the let down. Want to start off by saying that I never have taken the time to write a review , but this was so disappointing I felt compelled to write something. The app is not very intuitive, it’s hard to get good instruction on what does what , seems to be very little effort on the company’s part to make things clear. My huge complaint is the actual functionality of the whole system. Writing recognition is a total disaster! I bot the smart planner and wether I write in block letters or in script, it doesn’t even come close to being an accurate transcript. I tried everything, read instructions, adjusted angle of the pen, you name it, I did it. Just did not work. There is no sense in it synching right away with Ical, if each and every time, you have to correct the entry! It’s crazy bad. Hopefully I get my money back, if not, chalk it up another failed writing/digital system. I am A huge Moleskine fan, but the smart writing system is a huge fail.
