Man where do I start?... this is probably gonna be my notebook for the next couple of years, or longer if it last that long! I got the executive RocketBook with all the colored pens and I love the way they write on it. The app is an awesome addition to it! It’s reliable and lightning fast whenever I’m scanning pages. Everything works as advertised and I really appreciate it when companies advertise something that actually works the way it’s supposed to. Hats down to everyone in the team for making the notebooks and the app!
Works well!
by Phoneinteriordecorator2296 on 2020/02/25 22:01
The app itself works really well and hasn’t failed me. I’ve had my Rocketbook since the beginning of my school year Aug 14 to now.
Bug fixes and improvements
by jweeces on 2020/02/25 03:06
App continues to harbor bugs and poor performance despite repeated “bug fixes and improvements” updates. It has great functionality and helps me complete major tasks. But, seeing gross graphics and repeated poor transcription is disheartening.
Works well, battery killer
by ConnorF42 on 2020/02/21 04:23
Works well in our research lab to scan in notebook pages. Biggest issue is that the app absolutely burns through my battery life (relatively old device, iPhone 6s). Minor issues with slow loading times after each scan, and it is hard to make minor edits to page titles without it selecting the whole title. Maybe that is an iOS issue though. A cool feature for the programmable titles would be some kind of counter. Next scan would be one number higher than previous scan, e.g. experiment 1, then next scan is experiment 2. Could be asked to set the initial number.
Great idea but...
by Mpfritz on 2020/02/20 12:31
Rocketbook is a great idea. The ability to scan and send notes to various destinations is great. To make it better, I’d suggest: 1) Display the destination more completely. If you are sending notes to different notebooks to OneNote, there is no way to know (looking at the app) which is which without digging in to the settings. 2) Give the option to synchronize destinations across devices. Sometimes I scan with my iPad, other times with phone... I have had, on occasion, the need to reset destinations. But I suspect those were the results of OneNote’s reliability issues...
Loving it so far.
by Nellis3211 on 2020/02/20 05:00
I’m obsessed with the notebooks, favoring my Wave at the moment. App wise I’m a little frustrated because colors don’t translate over when having text documents created. I tried with too many colors to count and they all came up as black.
Scan resolution
by Kid Rock C on 2020/02/19 23:03
Dear developers, Why can’t you use the phone’s native resolution when storing scan? It’s 2020 and phone cameras are great alternatives to scanners. Why are you throwing away pixels? What if I want to print my notes at some point? This isn’t rocket science (pun intended). Just have the resolution be a setting. Thanks
Love it!!!!
by LMcFall on 2020/02/19 04:28
I love it!!!Just wish it came with extra pens in different color instead of buying separately.
Does not sync across multiple devices
by Luvleelayd on 2020/02/16 06:38
Just purchased the notebooks, pen, highlighters and learned the app does not sync across multiple devices. This is really disappointing because I, like most people just don’t use one device to connect. I am very disappointed. I hope this is reconsidered.
Changed the way i do college
by sneed_z on 2020/02/11 23:24
Honestly, i hate taking notes by hand. Yet, this semester a majority of my classes "don't allow laptops" and somehow i stumbled across this. I can take notes, scan it extremely fast and have it sent to my onenote which is where i keep all my notes organized for studying. i honestly told a few people i know about it because i was so blown by how cool this thing is. honestly worth the money, buy the new one though the wave is softer and gets beat up in your backpack.
Rocketbook good, app bad
by 3roy8 on 2020/02/09 22:45
Rocketbook is great. I love rocketbook. I have 2. The app, however, is inconsistent. It only transcribes my scans about 80% of the time, and about every 6th page it gets stuck on the “Processing” screen. Rocketbook as a company seems pretty solid, but I can’t say the same about their app.
Sending?
by Elisabeth Waring on 2020/02/09 15:03
I love the rocketbook... but most of my stuff won't send to the files. Is there a way to fix this?
Another Satisfied Student
by Uwbodybuilding on 2020/02/09 11:50
The Rocketbook works very well for my PhD program. I can use it for every class and all of my side projects. Then, I can easily separate the pages into their respective categories using the Rocketbook app. Very easy and intuitive. I also love the texture of the writing surface in the Rocketbook. Very smooth and nice to write on!
Best Notes Organizer Ever!
by Mr Duda on 2020/02/09 06:35
Many Reusable notebooks out there with their own apps for scanning but Rocketbook’s note organisation in drives and cloud is something totally unique and awesome! Just a few suggestions to make the app more efficient: 1. Add a few more drive/cloud locations (7 are ok, but a few more will make it more classy) 2. Please add an option to directly save JPG files on Google Photos/Photo Library! 3. The OCR feature works fantastic with titles Between ##. Wish it could work for day and date of creation too apart from title (Eg: ##Day: Wednesday, Date: 23-01-20##).
Life saver for college students
by fairy111_ on 2020/02/08 23:46
This app/product has helped me be much more organized AND sustainable this semester. I’ve always been an average student but this app and the Rocketbook notebook make me feel so much more motivated to take thorough notes and stop procrastinating. I didn’t think a notebook would help me so much but this one really has!!!
Great for notes
by Arsibalt on 2020/02/07 16:54
I’ve been using a Rocketbook everlast this year for all of my lecture notes, and it’s just great to be able to so quickly turn my handwritten notes into good looking PDFs. I grabbed a mini and brought it to a talk yesterday and took notes and immediately uploaded them, which I would never have done in the past. All in all, I love the products and the app is great!
The Perfect Solution for my ADHD Tech Brain
by wilderness-sojourner on 2020/02/07 13:21
I have moderate ADHD, and am always writing (and losing) notes on random pieces of paper, or trying to find the perfect tech system to capture my tasks and notes in my endless quest for the ultimate productivity system. However, I have yet to find a solution that allows me to make use of paper and pen while affording me the ability to organize and store my notes digitally, leaving me in a chronic state of anxiety as I can never consistently find and retrieve important information. Until now. I bought the Rocketbook Everlast and the pocket notebook, along with a set of Pilot Frixion pens, markers, and highlighters. This combination has made a huge difference not only in my ability to streamline my workflow, but to relieve my chronic anxiety as I never have to wonder what notebook I wrote what in. I cannot recommend these products strongly enough!
Decent
by DunknDonuts on 2020/02/07 01:16
I like it. Hope you improve the OCR and occasionally the app appears frozen. I have to force it to close and reopen. There’s a lot of room for improvement. Keep up the good work
Life changing
by movingmointains303 on 2020/02/06 17:32
I highly recommend this ingenious product. How I wish this service existed when I was a young newspaper beat reporter filling up notebooks daily and getting lost in disorganization! Not to mention the waste. As a frequent note taker and personal journal-er, this service solves several of my biggest challenges, and makes one if my fav activities (writing notes to remember stuff, writing notes to my wife, doodling) even more fun and creative. Rather than several work notebooks (one for each client), a scratch pad for random notes and doodling, and a personal journal, I now carry around just one notebook (the Everlast) and can manage to things MORE organized, because my notes all magically zoom off to their proper storage area in Evernote and Google Docs, and I can always search (search!!!!!!!) all my handwritten notes in the app. This product truly has changed my life for the better.
Coolest ever
by Japhy Robinson on 2020/02/02 04:43
I recommend to everyone!
Amazing for ADHD
by Sweetmoniku on 2020/01/29 13:28
I often won’t take notes because I’ll likely lose them. Rocketbook changes the game completely.
Great product, needs new application
by MarlanaTravis on 2020/01/28 03:14
I love the product!! It works amazingly but needs an academic version with at least 50 pages in the notebook. I don’t want to have to buy multiple notebooks for multiple classes. That kind of defeats the idea.

by Prismperfect on 2020/01/25 19:05
This book and app have helped make my college life a breeze. The only thing that bums me out is that I didn’t find it until my senior year! I love it and recommend it to anyone who has kids in school or college.
Bug fixes make it in usable
by nickname qwe on 2020/01/25 02:49
I absolutely love my rocketbook in fact I have 3 of them but, the version of the app that I have downloaded, the newest version, will not scan. I have tried my iPhone and my iPad, and continue to hold it the same way I always have. On my iPad it worse yet because it keeps switching randomly to the Beacon scan mode. So disappointing please fix this app so I don’t have to go back to paper and pencil, use a different app and slam this product that I really do like.

by slg397 on 2020/01/21 22:26

Can’t change password?
by Geek Queen on 2020/01/20 05:32
It’s a great app except that I changed my Google password and there is no obvious way to update the app. I can no longer scan things directly to my Google accounts and that is frustrating.
Everlast
by PrincessMKG23 on 2020/01/19 21:10
SO unbelievably convenient. All my notes for my business are in one place (my google drive) and they’re in their respective folders. I only ever have to replace the pens. I’m not sure how long each one will last (I take ALOT of notes) but so far I’ve written a majority of the pages (32 pages total) and I’m still okay. That, and the pen replacements are super cheap on Amazon! My boyfriend killed it this Christmas. Knew what I needed before I did.
Fantastic Idea, Moderate Execution
by Johnny Forensic on 2020/01/19 20:32
Pros: - Scan your notes and reuse the notebook. Saves money and trees. - Use one notebook for multiple subjects and put an X at the bottom into the symbol for the category of pages. This lets you send different pages/notebooks to different locations such as online storage, email, etc. - Batch scanning feature allows you to create a multi-page PDF document per subject without interrupting scanning or having to jump pages. Scan each page in order, and Rocketbook pays attention to the mark that says where to put it, so you can use this for work/personal/community or math/English/Spanish/science, etc. simply and quickly. - Search your notes by the handwritten contents inside (when it works, more later) Cons: - No iCloud sync of Rocketbook data, so the notebooks you scan into the Rocketbook app have to stay inside the device you used to scan them. Yes, copies go to your external storage and you can see them there from any device, but then you lose the handwriting search. - Handwriting search is iffy at best. Apple’s Notes app is much better at handwriting OCR, for example. Since the primary function is to search your notes based on your handwriting, it doesn’t help when the handwriting OCR is mediocre. (Note: I print and have pretty decent handwriting, and it still fails way more than I’m comfortable with.) When I can’t search for a name, for example, and find it in one of my notebooks, it makes the entire purpose of write/scan/wipe clean sketchy, because now I still have to go back manually through each notebook online where the name might be. - OCRed handwriting is stored on Rocketbook servers for searching your notes within the Rocketbook app. It doesn’t OCR the handwriting and store it into the document itself, so you can’t use your operating system search functions to find your notebooks in your storage. This makes text searching available ONLY in the Rocketbook app, ONLY if you’ve kept the hundreds or thousands of notebooks you’ve scanned forever, and ONLY on the device you used to scan them (because of no iCloud sync of their data). This app/notebook set is a great idea plagued by not great execution. It’s close, though, and it is under active development, so I hope some of the architecture/design choices they made will be changed in the future. Allowing iCloud sync/storage of your notebooks for their app, improving/purchasing a better handwriting OCR engine, and putting the OCRed handwriting into the PDF documents themselves would make this pretty ideal.
A-okay
by Tony Quill on 2020/01/19 02:56
Had an issue, customer service seemed to fix it. Hope they follow on their promise! (That’s where the last star is haha)
So much frustration
by this app totally stinks on 2020/01/18 03:05
I got this $30 notebook with the hopes that I would be able to streamline my notes at work. It has been a time consuming nightmare trying to get this thing to send PDF’s to the cloud. And forget about signing out of the app once you’re in. There is no option to log off. There is no support for when I am stuck trying to figure this out. There is no help for guidance. It is oversimplified to the degree that it becomes impossible to navigate. I am so frustrated and disappointed with the whole experience.
Great but wish it could differentiate colors
by KEB7899 on 2020/01/18 01:48
I really love using my Rocketbook to take notes in school. It works really well and I feel food about saving paper. However, I use different colored pens for notes, and some of the colors look the same as black when I upload my notes. Blue, purple, and dark green all look like black in the pdf versions. Other than that, I really love this app and the notebook!
Fantastic!!
by Crater_Maker_24 on 2020/01/18 00:30
I’ve never written a review before, but wow! This is fantastic! Get a Rocketbook!!! It will change your life on how you take notes and stay organized!
Do not waste your money on any special colors of Highlighters or Pens!
by E.Gabrielle on 2020/01/17 22:48
I originally bought rocket book because I was tired of having old note books leftover from each of my classes. But as I start to use it I am coming to realize that none of the highlighters and pens show up in the correct color or, in the case of the highlighters, not at all! And considering the expensive cost for theses pens and highlighters (~$8) I would expect them to work. I’m super disappointed in the the whole uploading process.
Wow.
by Thatgirlwitheshortredhair on 2020/01/17 21:24
The coolest, most effective, most awesomely simple form of working. Environmentally friendly, time friendly, chic, sleek, incredibly easy to use and learn, customizable.... I want 20. LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!! DO NOT HESITATE!
Notebook is a like, app is a Meh...
by Atheron121 on 2020/01/17 10:09
I like having the ability to reuse the pages, erase mistakes, and the potential of saving the work into a cloud storage. Execution of the app leaves something to be desired - the OCR is not robust, the pages are not scanned fully all the time, so I have to constantly check to make sure the app has, in fact, captured all of the info, and (a big one for me, but may not be for others), I use different color pens for not taking, and the app makes all of the colors SO DARK that there is no way to differentiate blues and people from black, red is barely visible. Light blue is as dark as the regular blue is supposed to be... I like having the colors to differentiate parts of my notes to make reviewing easier, but there is no point because of the quality of scans is so poor. Why have multiple colors if they all look the same in the end?!.. Also, the options for sending are broken, as well as the setting for naming convention - no matter how many times you may change the settings, they always end up being reset next time you open the app. Frustrating!
Great for teachers
by CN31672 on 2020/01/16 21:45
The combination of my Rocketbook Everlast and this app have been wonderful for my lesson planning and sharing notes with students. I also have the beacons on my whiteboards and the students love using them. Great product. You should consider a Lesson Planning book to market to teachers.
Love it except for one bug with app
by CyberLizard on 2020/01/15 20:54
I love my Rocketbook. I use it for all kinds of things. I’m just having a problem where, if I go out of the app into others, when I come back the app is locked up and I have to restart it. Not a huge deal but an annoyance.
Helpful
by wolfester on 2020/01/15 14:07
I have the Rocketbook Fusion. The app is easy to use and the Rocketbook system over all has been very helpful in both my job and my studies. I haven’t been able to make the auto-title feature work properly yet and sometimes the app doesn’t “see” where the new file should be sent. But other than those two minor things, the app does exactly what it is supposed to do.
Not bad but file template flaw
by MisterShrek on 2020/01/15 13:23
The real value in this application is the workflow. Streamlining the process of saving these details is valuable. Part of this value is in the naming convention available via the templates. Currently however each time the app is re-opened the file naming template resets, killing any value gained from this thoughtful feature.
Dude it’s actually so useful
by yes yes plz on 2020/01/15 04:55
Like wth, why did no one come up with this earlier. I feel like I should’ve known about this for years. I have the same feeling I got when I found out about Shazam (the music finding app). It’s unlimited amount of scans, thus unlimited amount of pages, and the app allows you to organize them into folders and stuff (not like an entire huge structure, but good enough for me). Just great.
RocketBook is needed for college!
by BriLeeBeana on 2020/01/15 02:45
I just love my rocket book. I use it in every class and it makes it so easy to keep all my notes organized. I have tried typing notes but it just wouldn’t keep me focused. With this I can take notes and draw pictures during lecture, plus do my homework and instantly make it a PDF!
Best purchase ever made!
by V.Fox on 2020/01/13 19:13
From lecture notes to grocery lists I use Rocketbook for everything. D & D Game plans? Boom! Sent to my personal email. Psych notes? Click! Sent AND transcribed to my school email for study group. Grocery lists for the hubby? Swipe! Sent to his and my email for safe keeping. Bye bye millions of half empty notebooks! This has been the most economical, environmentally friendly, and easiest purchase I have made.

Spam Notifications You Should be Thankful For
by newpolluter on 2020/01/04 03:13
Today the developer sent a push notification to my device that was an ad letting me know notebooks were on sale. After I mentioned on Twitter that this seemed like bad practice, they doubled down and told me I was “lucky” to have received it. Nope. Their suggestion was disabling app notifications entirely from within iOS, when the obviously more user-friendly choice would be to give users the ability to opt-out of these messages from within the app, especially since we never opted into them to begin with. Bad business practice and worse user experience.
Not scanning properly
by Alyssiarose1231 on 2020/01/02 21:09
When I first downloaded the apt everything was fine. Now I can’t scan bundle into OneNote.
Love My Rocketbook’s and the App
by Bonnie Prancer on 2020/01/02 18:04
Rocketbook and the app means I can be digital while taking hand written notes everywhere. I love all three Rocketbook’s I have; Fusion, Everlast and Mini. If you like the feel of pen in paper and want a digital life, do not hesitate to get a Rocketbook and the app.
Busy Medical Practice
by Hopster later on 2020/01/01 03:06
Love this notebook, works well for my practice. Frixon pens aren’t any good. Hope they fix them soon. Sometimes they don’t write.
Neat idea, poor execution
by Edwin Rasmussen on 2019/12/29 21:22
The PDF quality is barely good enough to be considered a viable substitute for pen and paper. the app features are pretty basic, transcription feature (text recognition) is terrible, and storage/email/sync options are not robust. Also when scanning, the camera will display that the full page is being scanned correctly (all 4 corners mapping correctly onto the image, good lighting conditions, etc.) but then when the PDF preview comes up before sending, the bottom part of the page is cut off sometimes and not others. Seems to be no rhyme or reason which pages is messes up or why. VERY FRUSTRATING! I end up taking regular pictures with my phone and saving them in a custom album titled “notebook.” I could do that with a REGULAR notebook.......just saying. Please, software engineers—fix this and it will be a product well worth purchasing. Right now, I feel like I bought a gimmick that makes my creative process feel frustrating and more difficult.
iPad App a Pleasant Surprise... But...
by FieldGuide on 2019/12/29 01:29
Would be nice to have an app like this work in landscape mode as wel so when using a keyboard such as the iPad Pro foldable keyboard, you don’t have to keep rotating the iPad to portrait mode to view the app. I mean, if you’re making a full res iPad app anyway, may as well allow it to work well with it right? Same thing with being able to have it compatible with multiple apps / spit screen too. And finally, with a ‘login’ for the service, it would definitely be nice to have settings and destinations synchronized. Having to reset them again seems to defeat the main purpose of logging in IMO.
Life Changing!!!
by XDaveSpartanX on 2019/12/20 16:31
There is proven research that supports handwriting vs typing for creativity,learning, self reflection. However in today’s day and age it simply isn’t feasible to tote around 2-3 different journals ... and compiling and organizing information into actionable knowledge is near impossible with that system. Rocketbooks easy to use platform solves all those problems more!!!
The end.
by Wind-Up-Bird on 2019/12/18 16:56
I will never buy another regular notebook again. Rocketbook is such a great tool!!! I’m surprised it can transcribe my chicken scratch to text. I am a disciple of Rocketbook now ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love it
by mel.,., on 2019/12/14 13:26
I love my rocket book. It is the best thing I’ve bought this whole year. I keep buying notebooks but this eliminates that need. With more convenience because I don’t have to have the notebook in my hands to remember my notes. Any study notes I have I can look at from the app or one of my backups. My only reservation is the pens. I always keep 2 on me because sometimes the pens start skipping. When the pens skip it makes it a little harder for the app to pick up what I wrote.
Highly useful but has some glitches
by Trolling_X_Koala on 2019/12/13 13:53
This is a great app for anyone who needs backups of notes or to send notes to a friend. OCR Transcribe is great and scans are usually really clean. Have started running into a glitch where the app locks up when trying to send to iCloud or any bundle scans.
Problems Scanning and sending
by Mikem118ncsu on 2019/12/11 17:03
Can’t seem to get my scans to send to email. Keep getting the same error “Error Sending, Failed to connect to email”. Tried to send it to Rocketbook via the feedback link and got “cannot upload Scan Error”. Seems like a good idea, but do far it’s failing to work and I can’t seem to find a way to contact the company for support. Update: found support through the app. Had to adjust my network settings a bit and now it is working. Was a little hard to find my way to support so knocking off 1 star but they got me fixed up pretty quickly once I found them.
Loving it!
by victoriaagc on 2019/12/10 14:54
This is such a nice and convenient way to store my notes! I’m currently a college student and using this for an online course and I’m loving it thus far. Also such a nice feeling when you write, very smooth.
This is no good if I can’t send to Evernote
by Maybe/Maybe not on 2019/12/09 23:14
Las test update logged me out, I can’t log back in thru Google. If I can’t send to Evernote, then this app is pointless for me.
I absolutely LOVE the use of the reusable notebook.
by The Review Maniac 7828 on 2019/12/06 20:15
Futuristic style, I got it in 2017. Highly recommend it.
Great system for scanning and organizing work notes
by KeithHML311 on 2019/12/06 13:47
Intuitive and easy to use interface. OCR is okay, not perfect. You can use without buying the notebook just by downloading and printing the pdf of the templates.
Ads...
by Daffydukc on 2019/12/03 17:36
Sometimes the app crops the margins more than other times leading to missing part of my notes., And this app has ads for more rocketbook products... I just want to quickly scan my notes and wipe down the pages without having to go through more steps.
An okay app with responsive developers
by Art and Grace on 2019/11/28 12:03
My original problem with the app was a fairly major difficulty I found with capturing the notebook. It’s probably a small thing that most people don’t run into. I have a disability, one of the symptoms of a medication I’m on is having hands that have a pretty steady ‘shake’. Over and over I tried to line up the notebook, and every time I was advised to keep the camera still. After 5 minutes of trying to capture a single page, I gave up in frustration, ready to give the app a 1 star review. However, I stopped myself and wrote the developer to ask for assistance. The response was almost immediate. I wrote them on a Saturday and had an email waiting for me on Monday (I was not upset they didn’t work on weekends). They gave suggestions and promised follow-ups if the ‘problem’ persisted. I took what they told me to do and I was finally able to capture the note. From 5 minutes of fail to 1 minute of success. The OCR is okay and I can still have a digital capture of my note(s). I love the fact that I can erase my notes and keep the notebook ‘forever’. Thanks for the responsive team and a very unique product.
So happy with this
by BenBerk5 on 2019/11/28 00:45
Rocketbook has been a really great purchase. I use it for school: to write notes, to study, and to doodle during boring classes. The app works really well and I’m very pleased with it.
Great but transcription is glitchy
by K.J.P33 on 2019/11/27 16:12
I love the Rocketbook, the feel of the notebook and the ease of scanning. The only issue is transcription. The app is set to transcribe for every service but only does it 1 out of 10 times. It says it’s transcribing, but then the document on evernote appears only as a title, with a completely empty document.
fix it
by anonanonaonymous9896877 on 2019/11/11 13:31
stopped sending scans anywhere after update. notebook is a waste of money if app doesn’t function.
Please fix the updates.

So, the updates totally ruined the naming system of this app. Before, I was able to use characters like slashes and question marks that were replaced with underscores for the real file name for the eMail, text message or eStorage upload (e.g. Drive). Think about this as a gallery or library of scanned images. However now, neither the slash or the question mark is permitted in the title; the title now is directly the file name, and these cannot have the symbols I used. I accidentally tapped on a sloppy sketch of a barn swallow and a chimney swift, but I had a slash within the name. Before it looked like "swallow/swift", now it looks like "swallow_swift", which is not as easy and pleasant to look at. If possible, please fix this?
I love Rocketbook!
by Jessth3best on 2019/11/05 16:44
The Rocketbook Fusion has been the best planner I’ve ever had. I love being able to scan and send my notes directly to my email so I don’t have to type them up all over again. The app is so easy to use as well.
Works for this Lefty!
by StephanaG on 2019/11/03 15:36
I was concerned that my left handed writing would smear it all into uselessness and I decided not to buy the notebook, but my sweet husband saw my interest and bought it for me anyway. And it works for me!! No smearing problem and I am delighted with all I can do with this app!
Best notebook in the World
by paw.15 on 2019/11/02 20:50
I absolutely love Rocketbook it is the smartest notebook in the world just outstanding
Great! I just wish Notability was supported
by Ceh2911 on 2019/11/02 05:12
I really hope the app will soon be able to send scans to Notability since I use that so frequently it would help me keep my note taking in the same place as my scanned notes and not have to fuss about with imports and copying so much.
AMAZING PRODUCT!!!
by shamiaslp on 2019/11/01 15:45
The Rocketbook has been one of the best purchases I’ve made!!! I love that I don’t have to keep up with multiple notebooks and can organize files within my google drive!!!
I use it all the time
by limeystill on 2019/11/01 15:17
I have been using the system of app plus rocket book for six months for work. I take a lot of notes, and in that time, I have not taken one page of notes on regular paper. This system is great.
Awesome
by Czar73 on 2019/10/31 19:14
Pros: I love I can take notes and save them then erase it all with water and start over. No more need for buying bundles of spiral paper notebooks. Cons: I just with the books came with a pen holder.
I hate it
by hshdhehdbdbjsdhgdhd on 2019/10/28 00:49

AMAZING
by Al B ☺️ on 2019/10/25 15:16
So freaking amazing I wish I had this in college!!!!!
Doesn’t scan waste of money
by Blue eye saint on 2019/10/23 17:22
I think that pretty much says it all
Great Idea!
by PJBottoms4 on 2019/10/21 19:58
I am in Technical Sales and this thing is exactly what I need. I take a lot of calls and need to recall important information frequently. I upload my notes to the company supplied cloud then they’re always available on my phone or laptop. Huge help and I don’t need a stack of paper notebooks!
Links with Google Classroom
by Liddybird on 2019/10/20 20:27
Such a great app for the Rocketbook and Google Classroom. Makes things so convenient!
Why?
by swcbn on 2019/10/20 00:03
If I could give this app 0 stars I would. Don't get me wrong here, the Rocketbook itself is great and I love it. But the app needs work. Especially the fact that it does everything automatically. If it could be done manually, it would've been fine, because then when I see the app has locked onto my page, I can just say, "yep, that's good" and be done with it. Instead, I take two hours to scan one page because the app can start scanning, but doesn't want to finish the job. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll keep the Rocketbook, but I'll use Scannable. It makes my life easier.
This book is wonderful!
by Ml melon on 2019/10/17 01:46
I love the rocketbook! It works so well. I just wish that differences in colored pens would show up more clearly once they are scanned (like black, purple, and blue). I’ve also noticed that the frixion markers leave a bit of a shadow once they are erased. The markers also don’t show up as clearly after being scanned. I’ve resorted to just using the pens. I just wanted more colors for the diagrams I draw in my book. When I use just the pens, everything is perfect!
Love it!☺️
by AngelaPierson on 2019/10/09 18:01
This app is soo cool! You get buy the Rocketbook, you download the app, and you can use the same page thousands of times, honestly IF I could I would rate it a 10. Great app!
Love it! But...
by msmeliss1092 on 2019/10/09 16:03
What’s the use of having this if the app doesn’t work? Currently when I try to open the app, it automatically closes out. Very disappointed. I love this notebook otherwise and I really hope there’s a solution soon.
Started with 1, but ended with another
by gadgetm on 2019/10/04 05:59
My first Rocketbook was the letter size Everlast. I found it great for meeting notes and ongoing projects. I also found it a bit overkill as far as size goes. Pages were mostly half -full. The letter size was bigger than my tablet ( which I lugged around with me). When I saw the Fusion Executive size, lt look more of what I was looking for. Purchased it. After 2 days with it, it was the perfect size for the way I took notes. I also thought the 7 pages of templates were not going to get much use, but quickly re-purposed them, and now part of my workflow.
Awesome Concept, Needs Improvement
by LuvMyBoys0609 on 2019/10/04 02:07
Drawing or writing in a special notebook and saving it online is a really cool concept. However, at least in my experience, the scanner is really finicky and takes forever to finally scan the page
Great but...
by GpGBoSS on 2019/10/04 00:41
I really enjoy the product and the app, but I was really hoping for support to send files directly to the new Amazon Drive.
The best thing for school

I am going through school right now and right after getting it, it helped me with my note. I recommend this.
Rocket my Way To Digital Notes Retention
by Don in Bucks on 2019/10/03 12:04
Unbelievably impressed by this outstanding product. I have all my digital records retained for over 30 years but notebooks remain in storage. I tried other solutions in the 90s and early 2000s but not were satisfactory. Finally I have an easy, accurate solution that fits my electronic filing system perfectly. And it’s so easy to use. My first scan attempt felt a bit awkward but I adapted by the 3rd time and now it’s a natural process. So after 4 days and 20 pages, each in my permanent digital storage and filed by appropriate client/topic I know this is a superior solution. Bravo and *****. Those bafoons on Shark Tank had no clue.
Rocket Book is great!
by Sgma0444 on 2019/10/03 11:54
So I’m on my second semester of using rocket book as my only note book for school and the paper less experience has made my backpack so much lighter. If you’re on the go and commute to school this is definitely a great mobile solution to weight and conveniency. I use this notebook for every thing. And the ability to have so many different subjects programmed in is great. There’s plenty of space for 16 credits of classes without the space or weight hassle of a regular five subject and one one subject notebook. The only problem I encounter is with the pens. While they dry very fast, they will smear if you touch them without giving them a couple seconds to dry. And since I’m left handed that means I have to pick up my hand as opposed to resting it comfortably on the page. I know it’s definitely not as easy to fix as a software problem but it is something that exists and people should be aware of. However the pros to this notebook vastly outweighs the cons and I think anyone can and should give this a try. The paperless experience alone is worth it!
Low Tech Re-thought
by Gee-9 on 2019/10/03 07:06
I travel a lot for work and taking notes on my laptop is the easiest way to ensure I have a file to share and format for a report. But laptops run out of battery; outlets are lacking or inconvenient; start up takes time; the process can be noisy; and if there is no good WiFi, the file can be lost with a sudden shutdown. Rocketbook allows me to take notes in a more friendly and interactive manner. I can share them immediately from phone contacts and email or text. The OCR works well enough to enable me to get a good start on my report. Plus, my notes are filed to the project so the whole team can access them. They are not hidden in my private notebook. The one downside is the need to write legibly to get a really good OCR translation.
Rocketbook is Space-X for the day to day
by spooky rogue on 2019/10/01 03:58
The primary feature I was seeking from this app/ product combo was one demonstrated in the demo where you can scan the top and bottom page of the mini without turning the book for quick entry at the end of the day, I’m a manager and make reports and lists for my employees using this app and forward it to a shared drive for easy access but the tediousness of turning the page, flipping the notepad to scan, and flipping it again gets tedious. Please tell me there’s something you’re working on in the app.... otherwise all functions work great.
Wonderful & Simple
by Shalala13! on 2019/09/30 12:41
The Rocketbook itself is a superb invention so I had high expectations for the app and it delivered!! It has an aesthetically pleasing appearance with helpful yet simple features/options. It is straight-forward and easy to navigate for the less technologically inclined, but has all the options a more tech savvy person would need. I value quality and simplicity and this app has it all!
Old soln and not very good one
by Splainfish on 2019/09/28 17:16
This is just a glorified scanning app. Big deal, and you have to clean pages? What’s the point. It did not even scan as reliably as the the Scannable app and that works with any paper.
Best Notebook
by rt146 on 2019/09/26 22:33
The whole Rocketbook ecosystem is great! I love how simple it is to get my class notes safely to the cloud and not having to carry multiple large notebooks around in my backpack. Highly recommend you get this.
Great, easy, and fun to use!
by peaNUT321 on 2019/09/24 18:32
I’m really enjoying using my Rocketbook Fusion notebook and app. It makes it easy to take notes, upload them to the cloud and convert them to PDF or Word doc if I need to edit something.
Keeps loosing the custom defaults
by LotharGores on 2019/09/24 17:25
Keeps crashing in iOS 13 and not remembering the defaults I set rendering the app including the note pad useless.
Amazingly convenient for a high school teacher
by celeratis on 2019/09/14 21:39
I’ve been using a Rocketbook for the first month of the school year and it has been working effortlessly. I teach high school science and write class notes under a document camera. Then at the end of the day I choose the best version and *boom* in seconds it’s a pdf titled with the date and in a google drive folder. On my class resources page, (my school uses Canvas but it would work anywhere) I have a link to the notes google folder labeled “click here for class notes” so I don’t have to constantly update that page. This replaced a multiple step process I used last year. 10 minutes saved every time we have class notes really adds up. And the material get online quicker since I don’t have to put it off until I have more than 30 seconds to deal with it. I’ve also trimmed the borders off of a problem or two on a worksheet and laid the piece of paper in the middle of a blank Rocketbook page and *viola!* the solutions are popped in the folder for students. Fan-freaking-tastic. My only complaint is that the frixion pens are will smear when you try to erase immediately after you write. You almost have to wait a few seconds before erasing which isn’t ideal when you’re in front of a class.
Love it
by iluvtwilight123 on 2018/07/28 15:42
As a college student, the majority of my homework is online and any actual work that I do is not collected. This notebook (and the corresponding app) makes it easy to write out homework problems and not waste paper, it’s all stored in google drive (or whatever other cloud service you prefer to use). Plus, the update that allowed the PDFs to be bundled made it easy to keep homework and notes in one file for easy viewing and reviewing. The notebook itself is incredibly lightweight and while I do carry spare notebook paper just in case I have to turn in something that class, it saves me from having to haul around heavy notebooks all day (no lockers in college, you know, when we finally have more than 4 minutes to go to a locker). I’d say the only downside is that I do take a lot of notes and have a lot of homework so I fill up the notebook in about a week-1.5 weeks and scanning and erasing the entire notebook can be very time consuming, especially when you still have a lot of work to do, but it is still totally worth it for the amount of paper I save by having electronic notes. I really wish this notebook had been around in High School when I used even more paper, but I’m glad I have it for college.
Fantastic Concept and Execution
by njzeus on 2018/11/02 20:32
Absolutely love these notebooks. I have the 5x7 and 8x11 sizes and they are infinitely useful. You can send PDFs or jpgs, even gifs by scanning pages in sequence. With 36 pages per notebook, you can keep a fair amount of work before wiping down and reusing the pages. Additionally, the RocketBook website has printable graph, music staff, and lined writing pages in 5x7 and letter size; these obviously aren’t reusable, but are useful nonetheless. As a matter of fact, if you wanted to try the concept before buying one of the notebooks, you could print a few pages and try it out with the app first. I wish that this was around when I was in college; one small, light notebook for all of my classes that I can scan my notes from. The transcription feature also works fairly well, so your writing can be transcribed to type when you publish the page. The only drawback is that you have to use special Pilot Frixion pens, but they are readily available, relatively inexpensive, and come in many colors. (FYI, I use it with email and Google Drive and have had no issues. I can’t vouch for other compatible services: iCloud, OneNote, Slack, Dropbox, Evernote, or Box.)
Perfect for Teachers
by DMGal4life on 2019/07/21 17:18
As an educator, I love the versatility and smart features of RocketBook. My go to is the RocketBook wave. I used to spend $50-$60 a year on a custom lesson planner. Even for the expensive ones, I still didn’t get it exactly as I wanted. With the RocketBook Wave, I can customize it to make it exactly what I need. I use the non-frixion pens for my basic borders of calendars and headings, but then use the friction pens to fill everything in. It is so nice to upload all my calendars in one space instantly. The most satisfying part is erasing it all and getting to use it again the following year. RocketBook is a company that is very focused on its customers. They REALLY listen to the feedback. A suggestion on the message boards for a while was lined instead of graph style dots as an option. Viola! It is an option to buy now. There are also the RocketBook beacons coming out soon after a very successful Kickstarter campaign. THIS COMPANY IS WORTH IT! They care. They are smart. They are evolving. I will never buy a notebook from anyone else.
An okay app with responsive developers
by Art and Grace on 2019/11/28 12:03
My original problem with the app was a fairly major difficulty I found with capturing the notebook. It’s probably a small thing that most people don’t run into. I have a disability, one of the symptoms of a medication I’m on is having hands that have a pretty steady ‘shake’. Over and over I tried to line up the notebook, and every time I was advised to keep the camera still. After 5 minutes of trying to capture a single page, I gave up in frustration, ready to give the app a 1 star review. However, I stopped myself and wrote the developer to ask for assistance. The response was almost immediate. I wrote them on a Saturday and had an email waiting for me on Monday (I was not upset they didn’t work on weekends). They gave suggestions and promised follow-ups if the ‘problem’ persisted. I took what they told me to do and I was finally able to capture the note. From 5 minutes of fail to 1 minute of success. The OCR is okay and I can still have a digital capture of my note(s). I love the fact that I can erase my notes and keep the notebook ‘forever’. Thanks for the responsive team and a very unique product.
Life Changing
by D.S. Byrd on 2018/11/30 15:28
I am a writer, however, the chore of keeping up with all of my brainstorming papers and notebooks where I just wrote down some ideas is awful. I had maybe 10 different notebooks that I had written ideas, snips of stories, or just a list of names, and those were all scattered. Rocketbook gets rid of the need to get a new notebook every time I fill one up and completely eliminates my paper usage. If you’re like me, you think better when you actually put pen to paper rather than typing. I don’t mind typing, but writing my stuff down or drawing out brainstorming diagrams really gets the juices flowing. I can now keep up with everything I write down. I use Google Drive for all my stuff too and Google Docs has text recognition so if I write out an excerpt for a book, I can use Rocketbook to upload it then convert it. I love Rocketbook and have been telling everyone I know about it.

Notebook is a like, app is a Meh...
by Atheron121 on 2020/01/17 10:09
I like having the ability to reuse the pages, erase mistakes, and the potential of saving the work into a cloud storage. Execution of the app leaves something to be desired - the OCR is not robust, the pages are not scanned fully all the time, so I have to constantly check to make sure the app has, in fact, captured all of the info, and (a big one for me, but may not be for others), I use different color pens for not taking, and the app makes all of the colors SO DARK that there is no way to differentiate blues and people from black, red is barely visible. Light blue is as dark as the regular blue is supposed to be... I like having the colors to differentiate parts of my notes to make reviewing easier, but there is no point because of the quality of scans is so poor. Why have multiple colors if they all look the same in the end?!.. Also, the options for sending are broken, as well as the setting for naming convention - no matter how many times you may change the settings, they always end up being reset next time you open the app. Frustrating!
Great app and product
by mdestis on 2019/01/26 17:05
I received a Rocketbook as a gift and have loved every minute of it since receiving it. I love that there are enough pages that I don’t have to worry about erasing a page so quickly and I can keep all of my notes organized with the app. I didn’t believe that it would actually work, but it does. I just can express how much I love the app and the ease of use. The only thing I either haven’t figured out how to do, or the app doesn’t do, is that I cannot choose to send to only one email address unless it is my account email address. I used my personal email address for my account, but want to send notes to my business email and it will not allow me to take my personal email off of the email list to send. I don’t use that option on my notebook often, so it isn’t extremely important but I could see where it could be with someone else.
Absolutely brilliant
by Gopgor on 2018/10/06 04:56
I love the idea of this. I work in IT on the technical support team for an enterprise client. I oftentimes find myself using both a customer issued laptop as well as my company’s device. Unfortunately, I can’t easily share information across these devices. Because of this, I have often opted for a more analog note taking method. Prior to Rocketbook, I filled several Leichturn 1917s with notes on a large work project. Unfortunately, my copious notes were hard to search and reference, despite my detailed table of contents and journaling techniques. I was shown this technology by a business colleague and immediately fell in love. Now I store my notes in a variety of places. My only regret is that I can’t use it directly with either company’s enterprise OneNote/OneDrive account, but the other connectors help me merge everything together into one concise package.
OCR needs heavy optimization
by rose93ash on 2019/09/20 22:00
I use OCR, but would like to search my notes easier. I would like to use OCR with better functionality. The problem is I’m an engineering student, and OCR is optimized for English (I think). I understand it’s still a working process, but this company prides this notebook as being something wonderful for innovation and creativity. The sciences, like physics, help drive innovation, but when half the formula is Greek letter based OCR doesn’t transcribe well, if at all. I also can’t search my notes for formulas which is the most important thing I need. Also, please gather more writing samples of different styles, like cursive (if you haven’t). Basically, not everyone writes solely English character and in print. Plus the title naming OCR has yet to work for me: I wrote neatly, in print, and without any unrecognizable characters. Also, as this notebook becomes more popular could a bioplastic based notebook be used? Currently, the plastic can be recycled, but that doesn’t there aren’t better alternatives. (Except pages, most but not all accept this type of plastic.)
Great app, fast scans
by gympiemom on 2019/03/25 14:18
A few people have complained that this is just scanning. Although at times I agree I could scan my work; the app works a bit easier because I don’t have to be super accurate where I place the page. The shape and markings on the paper allow the edges to be recognized without having to line it up and press a button while oops I wiggled. Great concept. It does have it’s glitches: books wear out sooner than expected; the transcription is a great idea just needs some tweaking; email has stopped working; and the size and notebook options are limited. But good things too: customer service is quick to respond and very helpful and polite when they can’t help; books allow me to not have papers laying around; I love love love the frixon pens on the notebooks; the new smart titles allow me to not have to title the scan after the fact; and transcription option is useful if improved a bit.
Awesome invention
by Blackjack buff on 2019/09/05 16:03
I use the crap out of this! Especially in school. I would go through paper pads like not tomorrow with the amount of notes, assignments and projects for my classes. My only complaint would be it is not able to scan your writing and convert it to a text so you can upload in pages. I don’t like taking my laptop with me to work due to the area I work in and fear it will get stolen or broken with all the equipment I have with me so I hand write my assignments and type them up when I get home. Definitely be a time saver if it could convert however this doesn’t not stop me by far from using the product. I have recommended it to several people. Highly recommended can’t wait to see what Rocketbook may have in store in the near future. Easy to use, pen glides perfectly when writing and easy to clean off no special chemicals for clean up. Just simple cloth it comes with and water.
My penmanship is improving
by CandaceSoVan on 2018/12/29 17:30
Digital living had ruined my handwriting. I comforted myself that I wasn't wasting trees or paper, but I missed being able to jot things down -- or doodle! Now, I hand-write two to-do lists each day (one personal & one for home & family). I scan and preserve each both in the morning and at the end of my day (with check-offs, additions, etc.) It gives me a daily journal of both my accomplishments and my aspirations. And those unexpected things that come up. Why does this work better for me than all the lovely to-do apps I've tried? Dunno, but my handwriting is getting better. So I use my wee, pocket-sized Rocket Book every day. I haven't done much much with the larger one yet, but I'm sure I will. The app makes it very easy to send notes to different places or people. It's very cool and I've become a big ol' Rocket Book fan.
Great way to take notes
by Tommie3 on 2018/09/22 13:24
I've been using the Rocketbook Everlast for about a month now and have to say it's exceeded my expectations. I take a lot of written notes in my line of work that I need to archive for reference and backup. I can sometimes use MS Onenote or Notability (2 great e-note apps by the way) but there are times where its just more comfortable and easier to take written notes, especially when there are diagrams or you know you'll want to share the notes with others later. Rocketbook gives you the best of both worlds because you can archive your notes in a standard folder in your cloud drive or on one of your note taking apps. The only limit now is the number of compatible e-note taking apps. I'm hoping they'll being on some of the other note taking apps such as Notability soon.
I'm using it for class
by e756008 on 2018/01/19 06:13
The book itself is light and feels really nice to write on so I have been using it to take notes for my college classes. I personally feel that there are not enough pages in the notebook itself as it becomes full in just a week of notes/classes. what I am writing about, however, is that I would like to see a feature where when I scan, I click on the preview and it should take me directly to my most recent scan so I can double check the clarity of it in case my hand shook. at the moment, when I am scanning a bundle of notes, every time I want to preview my latest scan, I have to swipe all the way to the end of the bundle. That's the only thing I can think of at the moment. I'll update if I find something else, or if you actually implement what I described.
Neat idea, poor execution
by Edwin Rasmussen on 2019/12/29 21:22
The PDF quality is barely good enough to be considered a viable substitute for pen and paper. the app features are pretty basic, transcription feature (text recognition) is terrible, and storage/email/sync options are not robust. Also when scanning, the camera will display that the full page is being scanned correctly (all 4 corners mapping correctly onto the image, good lighting conditions, etc.) but then when the PDF preview comes up before sending, the bottom part of the page is cut off sometimes and not others. Seems to be no rhyme or reason which pages is messes up or why. VERY FRUSTRATING! I end up taking regular pictures with my phone and saving them in a custom album titled “notebook.” I could do that with a REGULAR notebook.......just saying. Please, software engineers—fix this and it will be a product well worth purchasing. Right now, I feel like I bought a gimmick that makes my creative process feel frustrating and more difficult.
Update: When the app doesn’t crash
by SociologyMajor on 2019/04/01 23:20
Original Post: “When the app doesn’t crash, this is a great product. However, every time I want to upload my work, I cannot, it crashes or stalls. This is the only app that has this issue on my iPhone X. Please revert back to a version of your app that works, because right now it’s trash and I’m fearful that I’ll lose my unloaded work if I uninstall. Fix this!” Updated Post: After contacting the support line, they informed me that their last update was the problem and a new update will be available in a few days, which was true. The app works as it’s supposed to, and I even used a few tricks with the OCR. I would like to see if the OCR can recognize new paragraphs or line spacing, because it’s a bit jumbled when it’s emailed. I will give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⛅️ for now, because I believe it can be improved, but it’s a good starting point.
Used for document development - professional
by Dkm09 on 2019/02/02 16:09
This is been an amazing product. I am a technical consultant with multiple customers at a time. In my work, I was taking extensive notes on legal pads. I used to need a pad for each document I worked on. Even with that method, it was hard to find the information I needed and keeping track of all those notebooks was very hard. Now I can take notes, snap the picture, the document is automatically named and sent to the right folder on Google docs. I can search the document for the information I need because of the ocr functionality they use. Really great product. BTW, I have tried using an iPad for my notes a couple of years ago and went back to the old fashioned way. Rocket book works much better.
Great with some flaws
by Buglykitty on 2019/07/02 00:36
I love the rocket book, not so much the app. I have the ever last, and use it with an iPhone XR. I’ll start off by saying that I love being able to put my notes in the cloud, but the app has some problems. On every 5 or so pages you scan, the app has a tendency to cut off about a centimeter for the edges on a page. Also, the handwriting detection it a nifty feature, but for me it’s really a gimmick. Unless you have the most perfect handwriting, it gets totally messed up. Also, it only transcribes through email, so not as useful as it could be. There is also a problem where if you do a bundle scan of 6 or more pages, it won’t send to OneDrive. The recognition of the app is flawless, and it never captures the surrounding of the page, just the page. Overall, I love the rocket book, and the app is a good, but could be a bit better.
OneNote Integration Fails
by Tom Stubbs on 2019/04/06 19:45
I have tried to get Rocketbook to work with OneNote for over six months and it has never worked. When I finally reached someone in support, he admitted that they are still having problems getting it to work with OneNote. I followed every suggestion in online help and they do not fix the problem. The Rocketbook app just always says that it cannot access my notebooks. It has permission to do so, but it still does not work. The list of OneNote notebooks that shows up is also bizarre, but there is no way for me to figure out where Rocketbook is looking to identify my OneNote notebook library. Support is horribly weak, as well. It is almost impossible to get a response and, when it comes, it is long after you sought it. I have seen folks for whom it works, but it has never worked for me. It was a waste of my money and, to hear their support, they know it does not work reliably with OneNote and they cannot fix the problem (yet). It is a great idea and a great sounding product, but steer clear of you want to use it with OneNote.
Rocketbook Rocks!
by Atbluebonnet on 2018/09/07 12:37
I have a thing about not wasting paper, so the Rocketbook Everlast immediately intrigued me. I now own 3 of them to use for different purposes and absolutely LOVE them! They’re lightweight to carry, allow you to backup ALL your notes to your computer, and very durable. Also, the company is great to work with & provides excellent customer service. I had an issue and it was addressed within less than 24 hours. My only frustration is that there isn’t yet a cover of some type for the Everlast that you could insert it into and that would contain space for business cards and a pen so you’d have one thing to carry into a customer meeting & yet have all you need right there with you. Hopefully they’ll develop some kind of cover like that soon!
Low Tech Re-thought
by Gee-9 on 2019/10/03 07:06
I travel a lot for work and taking notes on my laptop is the easiest way to ensure I have a file to share and format for a report. But laptops run out of battery; outlets are lacking or inconvenient; start up takes time; the process can be noisy; and if there is no good WiFi, the file can be lost with a sudden shutdown. Rocketbook allows me to take notes in a more friendly and interactive manner. I can share them immediately from phone contacts and email or text. The OCR works well enough to enable me to get a good start on my report. Plus, my notes are filed to the project so the whole team can access them. They are not hidden in my private notebook. The one downside is the need to write legibly to get a really good OCR translation.
Love This Product and App
by Travix1516 on 2018/01/12 05:05
I absolutely love this product. I've been using this for both personal and work related note taking since I got it. Simple to use, scans are great, and it functions exactly as advertised. The Frixion pens work great. Writing with them on the Everlasting feels smooth and natural. The included pen works extremely well, though the pack I purchased because I wanted the other colors seem to work marginally better than the included pen. I would recommend grabbing a pack of them for the flexibility of the extra colors, if not for the slightly smoother writing. All in all it's one of my favorite tech products of recent years. I raved about it so much a friend ended up buying it, my sister bought one for her husband, and I bought my dad one. Thanks Rocketbook.
Amazing
by Evilblah on 2019/03/24 20:32
I do a lot of game design in notebooks or loose sheets of paper and I always end up with tons of iterations laying around taking up space. Scanning or photographing all of this and then destroying the physical copies or taking time to compile PDFs from all the photos is always a pain. Enter Rocketbook. This notebook is amazing! I have three now and use them exclusively for all my design work and sketches. I can then use the app to take images, create PDFs, and then instantly send them to my backup (Google Drive), my email, my business partners email, and our shared work drive. It’s amazing! Then I can wipe the book clean and continue designing. No extra papers laying around, no shredding papers, nothing. So nice. App is great for setting up destinations and reviewing what you’ve captured. I love it.
Love it and bought a second
by JoanOH on 2019/09/10 23:52
I’m a list maker. A serious list maker. I start every day with a cup of coffee and pen and paper to create my To Do List for the day. Until now, I’ve used a simple composition notebook for my lists. I’ve downloaded so many apps, trying to find one to meet my simple list needs, but have always returned to my notebooks. No more! Rocketbook is perfect for those of us who make lists, save lists, and refer to past lists. It’s easy to use right out of the box. It offers me lined pages or dots, and I use both. I like it so much I ordered a 2nd Rocketbook (the mini) to carry in my purse for quick notes. It’s a simple step to save my lists to my Cloud of choice, or share it in email. There is nothing I don’t love about my Rocketbook!
Amazing App! Only Minor Inconveniences
by BDub 2000 on 2018/08/21 02:53
I’m a college student and have been using Rocketbook for some time now. It is SO easy to organize the notes I take in class and have their scans automatically sent to files I set up on Microsoft OneDrive. The app runs flawlessly and the Handwriting Recognition has been incredible. It makes it so easy to search key phrases in my many pages of notes. The only slight inconvenience I have found is that there is only a “blanket” Naming Template. It would be nice to have separate Naming Templates for each filing symbol (Each symbol is for a different class) as well as a way to insert the “##Title##” from the Handwriting Recognition into a pre-existing Template. Once again, Rocketbook is an amazing tool and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Awesome notebook
by Erkbae1 on 2019/03/15 13:52
I am someone who makes a ton of lists and just writes down random things that I need to look up later in the day and this notebook is so convenient. Instead of having a lot of scraps of paper just floating around in my purse I can jot everything down in my Rocketbook notebook and scan it to the app for later. The ink does take a few seconds to dry but it’s not a big issue. I currently have the mini but will soon be purchasing the executive. I am currently waiting for the new product for the whiteboards and I’m excited to be able to scan our whiteboard ideas/ drawings to the app as well. The quality of the scans is really good and I have a couple of apps tied into the Rocketbook app where I can send my scans as well.
Totally a lifesaver
by LucioRenfield on 2019/02/24 14:23
I love this thing! I’m an aspiring writer and honest truly I spend hours during the week taking notes on paper and then typing them back up in my laptop in the evening. With the text transcriber going to my email and a cloud with just one scan is a lifesaver! I can’t tell you how much work I’ve lost just because I forgot to back things up on a cloud storage right as my computer dies. If you find yourself writing throughout the day like I do I highly recommend this. It’s made my life a lot easier and I don’t have to carry multiple notebooks with me. When I fill up this book I can clean the pages and start over fresh with the previous pages already saved and backed up.
So far so good
by Kkkk😜 on 2018/01/16 01:18
I have been using this app for almost a month now and so far everything seems to be going pretty well. It has definitely helped me stay organized by scanning everything into its proper folder and I love that I am not going just wasting paper, I can just continue to reuse the notebook. The only thing that I do not like is that it does not allow me to scan multiple pages into/ as ONE pdf file. Each page is its own individual pdf file. When I scan on my adobe app, I can scan multiple pages and have the option to all be on one pdf file, not each page be its own, like on this. I constantly use my tablet to go over my notes but if i take several pages of notes in class in one day I have to switch back between all the different individual files. I hope a new update could fix this!!!!
Loved it at first, but needs a few tweaks to keep it useful
by AnotherNicknametoo on 2019/05/30 12:49
I was initially very excited about the Rocketbook. I prefer to hand write my notes, but want to have them with me on my devices. I like the reusability of the Everlast pages. I would like it if you made these pages with 3 holes punched in them for use in a 3-ring binder. I have used an Everlast page for my To Do list at work. I cut the rough spiral edge off and glued a page to part of a sheet protector to make my own. Unfortunately, I have to glue it again every few weeks. I also would like to be able to scan directly to my Files on iCloud. I don’t want to have to download/move files from email or the Rocketbook folder on iCloud. There is a different scanning app that allows me to save PDFs directly to my Files. Then I can have them in the folder I want on my Mac and on my phone.
Amazing
by Jtdude63 on 2018/09/08 23:34
One of the best purchases I have ever made. This makes uploading notes and homework online extremely easy, especially in an educational environment when everything has become streamlined and online. The notebook is so lightweight that you barely even notice it, and the easy to use app allows me to upload a days worth of notes in seconds. I only wish that there were 8.5x11 size Rocketbooks that had more than 36 pages (36 pages is more than enough for average use, I just prefer to have more so I can use it more often). Rocketbook is especially useful in college when walking between classes! I have recommended this wonderful design to all of my friends and family!
Managing multiple notebooks?
by HydePark39 on 2018/09/30 13:07
I have two Rocketbooks, one for professional/work related business and one for personal, with different set of destinations assigned for each book. My child also has a rocketbook color. It would be helpful to be able to setup different profiles or labeled notebooks within the app and toggle to either user x or notebookx. I asked tech support about the best way to manage this and the recommendation was to use a different iphone, one for work and one for private (seriously??) or have fewer options for destinations because they have to be divided up between different notebooks. That also means that my child, who uses my phone to send her drawings to the cloud and grandparents (because she’s a kid and doesn’t have a phone), can accidentally send her drawings to my work destinations. Not a great setup.
Useful!
by SwordInTheLight on 2019/04/27 14:18
I usually don’t write reviews unless I’m upset with something, but this app is an exception! I bought a Rocketbook recently to help me take notes for books I’m writing (I’m an aspiring author) and it’s really useful how everything is saved in the cloud. Since I pay for iCloud storage, I naturally would like to have things saved there, but I can’t choose the folder it saves to. Of course, I would like this feature, but I know it’s an apple-related security issue and the problem isn’t with the app itself. I completely recommend if you find yourself wanting to take paper notes but still have the advantage of having it saved In the cloud. Thanks for reading!!
Truly Life Changing!
by Psychomom3168 on 2019/02/06 01:27
I’m a math teacher, and these notebooks are wonderful for classes where working a problem uses an entire sheet of paper. I write out my notes and example problems, scan them, then pull them up to show in class. My students can do their work, then scan it and email it to me for grading. They also use their notebooks for taking notes on the current chapter, which they can scan and keep for reference. They get the writing exercise to help them learn to do the problems (instead of just punching buttons on a calculator), they can find their notes, and they don’t lose their homework before turning it in!
Great for students, adults, ecofriendly folks
by julia-pruch on 2019/06/06 23:39
I love my rocketbook! Received it as a gift and started using it to keep my notes for studying for the MCAT. It’s easy to use, reduces the amount of paper I use drastically, and allows me to access my notes online anywhere without a large notebook. My mom saw me using it and asked me to order one, she loves it now too! I recommend buying an extra pack of frixion pens, the color pack if you like colors, as the one pen that comes with it, runs out quickly. Great way to stay organized and not have a bunch of papers floating around. The app is great to upload notes directly to google drive in different folders.
So useful
by Hpmoon on 2019/01/12 00:39
I’m outrageously controlling over what content goes into what book. At first this made me feel uneasy, as everything can go into one book, but after my first delegated scan I felt so relieved that everything went to the proper internet resource. So so so so satisfying. And then I had to erase the pages, which almost broke my heart until I looked at my previously scanned pages on my google drive and felt so much better knowing everything was perfectly organized. Such. A. Great. Buy. I’ve bought colored Frixion pens and highlighters to further satisfy my organizational needs, and it scans just as well. (Purple is a little dark, but still good)
Rocket my Way To Digital Notes Retention
by Don in Bucks on 2019/10/03 12:04
Unbelievably impressed by this outstanding product. I have all my digital records retained for over 30 years but notebooks remain in storage. I tried other solutions in the 90s and early 2000s but not were satisfactory. Finally I have an easy, accurate solution that fits my electronic filing system perfectly. And it’s so easy to use. My first scan attempt felt a bit awkward but I adapted by the 3rd time and now it’s a natural process. So after 4 days and 20 pages, each in my permanent digital storage and filed by appropriate client/topic I know this is a superior solution. Bravo and *****. Those bafoons on Shark Tank had no clue.
Love everything about it!
by DemaIskander on 2018/01/18 05:56
I love my Rocketbook EVERLAST notebook because I get the same satisfaction of handwriting my notes with the advantage of being able to upload and save them to my computer. So far I’ve mainly used it for grad school note taking. As someone who has always been more into hand writing my notes over typing them, this is a perfect way to continue doing that and save some trees at the same time! I also love that there are colored pens and highlighters because color coding is essential for my note taking habits! Overall, it’s a great product and I wish I had it sooner!!! Definitely recommended to everyone and anyone!
Love this notebook and app!
by tjh952 on 2019/09/04 18:08
This has been life changing for me. I like to go old school in meetings by putting pen to paper but had trouble keeping everything organized or finding the right page, even with bullet journaling. I tried using OneNote but can’t always type my notes when I’m sharing my screen or presenting. The Rocketbook notebook is a perfect solution. The transcription is a work in progress, as evidenced by its beta status, but still helpful. Loved my executive sized Everlast so much that I bought a Fusion. I’m loaning the spare to my colleagues so they can test drive it before purchasing. I think I have some converts already.
The Best
by xgravity23 on 2019/08/12 04:29
I use my Rocketbook every day. I have a letter sized one that lives at my desk for conference call notes, and an executive sized one that lives in my purse for notes on the go. I use it to take hand-written notes when typing in my iPhone or writing in my iPad might look rude, or when I just want to write. Then, I can send the scans to OneNote or Google Drive, depending on what project the notes or for. Or if I need a transcription, I’ll also copy to my email. Worth every penny. I’m a Rocketbook evangelist, too. I tell everyone who loves notebooks/office supplies or technology about how great they are! The app works seamlessly every time. No complaints!!
Started with 1, but ended with another
by gadgetm on 2019/10/04 05:59
My first Rocketbook was the letter size Everlast. I found it great for meeting notes and ongoing projects. I also found it a bit overkill as far as size goes. Pages were mostly half -full. The letter size was bigger than my tablet ( which I lugged around with me). When I saw the Fusion Executive size, lt look more of what I was looking for. Purchased it. After 2 days with it, it was the perfect size for the way I took notes. I also thought the 7 pages of templates were not going to get much use, but quickly re-purposed them, and now part of my workflow.
Please fix the updates.
by goldTench on 2019/11/07 02:19
So, the updates totally ruined the naming system of this app. Before, I was able to use characters like slashes and question marks that were replaced with underscores for the real file name for the eMail, text message or eStorage upload (e.g. Drive). Think about this as a gallery or library of scanned images. However now, neither the slash or the question mark is permitted in the title; the title now is directly the file name, and these cannot have the symbols I used. I accidentally tapped on a sloppy sketch of a barn swallow and a chimney swift, but I had a slash within the name. Before it looked like "swallow/swift", now it looks like "swallow_swift", which is not as easy and pleasant to look at. If possible, please fix this?
Great Concept and Great Customer Service
by Mfromhamburg on 2019/02/14 05:15
I’m someone who has saved all my work notebooks - going back 20 years and through 5 different companies- boxes and boxes full - taking up space in the garage, so it’s not easy to go back and find those notes from years ago. But no more - Rocketbook makes it so easy to keep a digital history if all my notes - and with OCR, it so easy to retrieve what I need. Thanks for such a great, earth-friendly solution! And their Customer Service is fantastic- I reported quality issue with one notebook and they replaced it promptly. Really cool concept and great product!
really helpful!
by independent clause on 2019/01/06 22:18
i got this from a friend for christmas because we’re both rly into finding cool sustainable stuff :)) its been really helpful and easy to use and the design is so nice!!! definitely would recommend :) it’s a little difficult if i have several classes in a day with long lectures to find time to scan and erase the book since our passing periods are only 10 minutes, but it’s worth it to save the planet :D it also means i don’t have to have a bunch of notebooks and note paper in my bag which is very nice! i just wish it was more widespread so more assignments could be digitized
Best Idea Ever!!!
by student reviews on 2019/03/10 15:02
I just got the notebook today and it is so cool! At my school we use laptops, and we can’t write notes on laptops unless you type them. I just got this notebook and it is awesome! I can save everything to my laptop and be able to write notes without ever running out of room! This is the coolest invention ever and I totally recommend it for everyone. It also saves paper and could definitely be the future way of taking notes all across the world! The app is also so easy to use- all you have to do is scan your notes and send them to your chosen location.
This is simply the most versatile notebook in the market.
by Eziothelegend18 on 2020/02/25 22:35
Man where do I start?... this is probably gonna be my notebook for the next couple of years, or longer if it last that long! I got the executive RocketBook with all the colored pens and I love the way they write on it. The app is an awesome addition to it! It’s reliable and lightning fast whenever I’m scanning pages. Everything works as advertised and I really appreciate it when companies advertise something that actually works the way it’s supposed to. Hats down to everyone in the team for making the notebooks and the app!
OneDrive support
by Kfordham on 2018/11/12 22:31
So far, I do like Rocketbook. However, I purchased this (& all the pens & highlighters for this paper) for work use. In the Destination selection options is OneDrive. The app connects but is unable to access the data and will not allow my OneDrive to be a destination. Since my work files are saved to OneDrive, i am unable to have Rocketbook save to my folder directly and instead have to email them to myself and then save to OneDrive. An extra step I don’t have tome for. The App Support link takes me to the Rocketbook website where I can search for answers but OneDrive search comes up empty. Would rate the app higher if I could actually connect to all the Destination options listed.
Works well, battery killer
by ConnorF42 on 2020/02/21 04:23
Works well in our research lab to scan in notebook pages. Biggest issue is that the app absolutely burns through my battery life (relatively old device, iPhone 6s). Minor issues with slow loading times after each scan, and it is hard to make minor edits to page titles without it selecting the whole title. Maybe that is an iOS issue though. A cool feature for the programmable titles would be some kind of counter. Next scan would be one number higher than previous scan, e.g. experiment 1, then next scan is experiment 2. Could be asked to set the initial number.

The app itself works really well and hasn’t failed me. I’ve had my Rocketbook since the beginning of my school year Aug 14 to now.
Bug fixes and improvements
by jweeces on 2020/02/25 03:06
App continues to harbor bugs and poor performance despite repeated “bug fixes and improvements” updates. It has great functionality and helps me complete major tasks. But, seeing gross graphics and repeated poor transcription is disheartening.

Great idea but...
by Mpfritz on 2020/02/20 12:31
Rocketbook is a great idea. The ability to scan and send notes to various destinations is great. To make it better, I’d suggest: 1) Display the destination more completely. If you are sending notes to different notebooks to OneNote, there is no way to know (looking at the app) which is which without digging in to the settings. 2) Give the option to synchronize destinations across devices. Sometimes I scan with my iPad, other times with phone... I have had, on occasion, the need to reset destinations. But I suspect those were the results of OneNote’s reliability issues...
Loving it so far.
by Nellis3211 on 2020/02/20 05:00
I’m obsessed with the notebooks, favoring my Wave at the moment. App wise I’m a little frustrated because colors don’t translate over when having text documents created. I tried with too many colors to count and they all came up as black.
Scan resolution
by Kid Rock C on 2020/02/19 23:03
Dear developers, Why can’t you use the phone’s native resolution when storing scan? It’s 2020 and phone cameras are great alternatives to scanners. Why are you throwing away pixels? What if I want to print my notes at some point? This isn’t rocket science (pun intended). Just have the resolution be a setting. Thanks
Love it!!!!
by LMcFall on 2020/02/19 04:28
I love it!!!Just wish it came with extra pens in different color instead of buying separately.
Does not sync across multiple devices
by Luvleelayd on 2020/02/16 06:38
Just purchased the notebooks, pen, highlighters and learned the app does not sync across multiple devices. This is really disappointing because I, like most people just don’t use one device to connect. I am very disappointed. I hope this is reconsidered.
Changed the way i do college
by sneed_z on 2020/02/11 23:24
Honestly, i hate taking notes by hand. Yet, this semester a majority of my classes "don't allow laptops" and somehow i stumbled across this. I can take notes, scan it extremely fast and have it sent to my onenote which is where i keep all my notes organized for studying. i honestly told a few people i know about it because i was so blown by how cool this thing is. honestly worth the money, buy the new one though the wave is softer and gets beat up in your backpack.
Rocketbook good, app bad
by 3roy8 on 2020/02/09 22:45
Rocketbook is great. I love rocketbook. I have 2. The app, however, is inconsistent. It only transcribes my scans about 80% of the time, and about every 6th page it gets stuck on the “Processing” screen. Rocketbook as a company seems pretty solid, but I can’t say the same about their app.
Sending?
by Elisabeth Waring on 2020/02/09 15:03
I love the rocketbook... but most of my stuff won't send to the files. Is there a way to fix this?
Another Satisfied Student
by Uwbodybuilding on 2020/02/09 11:50
The Rocketbook works very well for my PhD program. I can use it for every class and all of my side projects. Then, I can easily separate the pages into their respective categories using the Rocketbook app. Very easy and intuitive. I also love the texture of the writing surface in the Rocketbook. Very smooth and nice to write on!
Best Notes Organizer Ever!
by Mr Duda on 2020/02/09 06:35
Many Reusable notebooks out there with their own apps for scanning but Rocketbook’s note organisation in drives and cloud is something totally unique and awesome! Just a few suggestions to make the app more efficient: 1. Add a few more drive/cloud locations (7 are ok, but a few more will make it more classy) 2. Please add an option to directly save JPG files on Google Photos/Photo Library! 3. The OCR feature works fantastic with titles Between ##. Wish it could work for day and date of creation too apart from title (Eg: ##Day: Wednesday, Date: 23-01-20##).
Life saver for college students
by fairy111_ on 2020/02/08 23:46
This app/product has helped me be much more organized AND sustainable this semester. I’ve always been an average student but this app and the Rocketbook notebook make me feel so much more motivated to take thorough notes and stop procrastinating. I didn’t think a notebook would help me so much but this one really has!!!
Great for notes
by Arsibalt on 2020/02/07 16:54
I’ve been using a Rocketbook everlast this year for all of my lecture notes, and it’s just great to be able to so quickly turn my handwritten notes into good looking PDFs. I grabbed a mini and brought it to a talk yesterday and took notes and immediately uploaded them, which I would never have done in the past. All in all, I love the products and the app is great!
The Perfect Solution for my ADHD Tech Brain

I have moderate ADHD, and am always writing (and losing) notes on random pieces of paper, or trying to find the perfect tech system to capture my tasks and notes in my endless quest for the ultimate productivity system. However, I have yet to find a solution that allows me to make use of paper and pen while affording me the ability to organize and store my notes digitally, leaving me in a chronic state of anxiety as I can never consistently find and retrieve important information. Until now. I bought the Rocketbook Everlast and the pocket notebook, along with a set of Pilot Frixion pens, markers, and highlighters. This combination has made a huge difference not only in my ability to streamline my workflow, but to relieve my chronic anxiety as I never have to wonder what notebook I wrote what in. I cannot recommend these products strongly enough!
Decent
by DunknDonuts on 2020/02/07 01:16
I like it. Hope you improve the OCR and occasionally the app appears frozen. I have to force it to close and reopen. There’s a lot of room for improvement. Keep up the good work
Life changing
by movingmointains303 on 2020/02/06 17:32
I highly recommend this ingenious product. How I wish this service existed when I was a young newspaper beat reporter filling up notebooks daily and getting lost in disorganization! Not to mention the waste. As a frequent note taker and personal journal-er, this service solves several of my biggest challenges, and makes one if my fav activities (writing notes to remember stuff, writing notes to my wife, doodling) even more fun and creative. Rather than several work notebooks (one for each client), a scratch pad for random notes and doodling, and a personal journal, I now carry around just one notebook (the Everlast) and can manage to things MORE organized, because my notes all magically zoom off to their proper storage area in Evernote and Google Docs, and I can always search (search!!!!!!!) all my handwritten notes in the app. This product truly has changed my life for the better.
Coolest ever

I recommend to everyone!
Amazing for ADHD
by Sweetmoniku on 2020/01/29 13:28
I often won’t take notes because I’ll likely lose them. Rocketbook changes the game completely.
Great product, needs new application
by MarlanaTravis on 2020/01/28 03:14
I love the product!! It works amazingly but needs an academic version with at least 50 pages in the notebook. I don’t want to have to buy multiple notebooks for multiple classes. That kind of defeats the idea.

This book and app have helped make my college life a breeze. The only thing that bums me out is that I didn’t find it until my senior year! I love it and recommend it to anyone who has kids in school or college.
Bug fixes make it in usable
by nickname qwe on 2020/01/25 02:49
I absolutely love my rocketbook in fact I have 3 of them but, the version of the app that I have downloaded, the newest version, will not scan. I have tried my iPhone and my iPad, and continue to hold it the same way I always have. On my iPad it worse yet because it keeps switching randomly to the Beacon scan mode. So disappointing please fix this app so I don’t have to go back to paper and pencil, use a different app and slam this product that I really do like.
Sending gets stuck a lot
by slg397 on 2020/01/21 22:26

Can’t change password?
by Geek Queen on 2020/01/20 05:32
It’s a great app except that I changed my Google password and there is no obvious way to update the app. I can no longer scan things directly to my Google accounts and that is frustrating.
Everlast
by PrincessMKG23 on 2020/01/19 21:10
SO unbelievably convenient. All my notes for my business are in one place (my google drive) and they’re in their respective folders. I only ever have to replace the pens. I’m not sure how long each one will last (I take ALOT of notes) but so far I’ve written a majority of the pages (32 pages total) and I’m still okay. That, and the pen replacements are super cheap on Amazon! My boyfriend killed it this Christmas. Knew what I needed before I did.
Fantastic Idea, Moderate Execution
by Johnny Forensic on 2020/01/19 20:32
Pros: - Scan your notes and reuse the notebook. Saves money and trees. - Use one notebook for multiple subjects and put an X at the bottom into the symbol for the category of pages. This lets you send different pages/notebooks to different locations such as online storage, email, etc. - Batch scanning feature allows you to create a multi-page PDF document per subject without interrupting scanning or having to jump pages. Scan each page in order, and Rocketbook pays attention to the mark that says where to put it, so you can use this for work/personal/community or math/English/Spanish/science, etc. simply and quickly. - Search your notes by the handwritten contents inside (when it works, more later) Cons: - No iCloud sync of Rocketbook data, so the notebooks you scan into the Rocketbook app have to stay inside the device you used to scan them. Yes, copies go to your external storage and you can see them there from any device, but then you lose the handwriting search. - Handwriting search is iffy at best. Apple’s Notes app is much better at handwriting OCR, for example. Since the primary function is to search your notes based on your handwriting, it doesn’t help when the handwriting OCR is mediocre. (Note: I print and have pretty decent handwriting, and it still fails way more than I’m comfortable with.) When I can’t search for a name, for example, and find it in one of my notebooks, it makes the entire purpose of write/scan/wipe clean sketchy, because now I still have to go back manually through each notebook online where the name might be. - OCRed handwriting is stored on Rocketbook servers for searching your notes within the Rocketbook app. It doesn’t OCR the handwriting and store it into the document itself, so you can’t use your operating system search functions to find your notebooks in your storage. This makes text searching available ONLY in the Rocketbook app, ONLY if you’ve kept the hundreds or thousands of notebooks you’ve scanned forever, and ONLY on the device you used to scan them (because of no iCloud sync of their data). This app/notebook set is a great idea plagued by not great execution. It’s close, though, and it is under active development, so I hope some of the architecture/design choices they made will be changed in the future. Allowing iCloud sync/storage of your notebooks for their app, improving/purchasing a better handwriting OCR engine, and putting the OCRed handwriting into the PDF documents themselves would make this pretty ideal.
A-okay
by Tony Quill on 2020/01/19 02:56
Had an issue, customer service seemed to fix it. Hope they follow on their promise! (That’s where the last star is haha)
So much frustration
by this app totally stinks on 2020/01/18 03:05
I got this $30 notebook with the hopes that I would be able to streamline my notes at work. It has been a time consuming nightmare trying to get this thing to send PDF’s to the cloud. And forget about signing out of the app once you’re in. There is no option to log off. There is no support for when I am stuck trying to figure this out. There is no help for guidance. It is oversimplified to the degree that it becomes impossible to navigate. I am so frustrated and disappointed with the whole experience.
Great but wish it could differentiate colors
by KEB7899 on 2020/01/18 01:48
I really love using my Rocketbook to take notes in school. It works really well and I feel food about saving paper. However, I use different colored pens for notes, and some of the colors look the same as black when I upload my notes. Blue, purple, and dark green all look like black in the pdf versions. Other than that, I really love this app and the notebook!
Fantastic!!
by Crater_Maker_24 on 2020/01/18 00:30
I’ve never written a review before, but wow! This is fantastic! Get a Rocketbook!!! It will change your life on how you take notes and stay organized!
Do not waste your money on any special colors of Highlighters or Pens!
by E.Gabrielle on 2020/01/17 22:48
I originally bought rocket book because I was tired of having old note books leftover from each of my classes. But as I start to use it I am coming to realize that none of the highlighters and pens show up in the correct color or, in the case of the highlighters, not at all! And considering the expensive cost for theses pens and highlighters (~$8) I would expect them to work. I’m super disappointed in the the whole uploading process.
Wow.
by Thatgirlwitheshortredhair on 2020/01/17 21:24
The coolest, most effective, most awesomely simple form of working. Environmentally friendly, time friendly, chic, sleek, incredibly easy to use and learn, customizable.... I want 20. LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!! DO NOT HESITATE!
Notebook is a like, app is a Meh...
by Atheron121 on 2020/01/17 10:09
I like having the ability to reuse the pages, erase mistakes, and the potential of saving the work into a cloud storage. Execution of the app leaves something to be desired - the OCR is not robust, the pages are not scanned fully all the time, so I have to constantly check to make sure the app has, in fact, captured all of the info, and (a big one for me, but may not be for others), I use different color pens for not taking, and the app makes all of the colors SO DARK that there is no way to differentiate blues and people from black, red is barely visible. Light blue is as dark as the regular blue is supposed to be... I like having the colors to differentiate parts of my notes to make reviewing easier, but there is no point because of the quality of scans is so poor. Why have multiple colors if they all look the same in the end?!.. Also, the options for sending are broken, as well as the setting for naming convention - no matter how many times you may change the settings, they always end up being reset next time you open the app. Frustrating!
Great for teachers
by CN31672 on 2020/01/16 21:45
The combination of my Rocketbook Everlast and this app have been wonderful for my lesson planning and sharing notes with students. I also have the beacons on my whiteboards and the students love using them. Great product. You should consider a Lesson Planning book to market to teachers.
Love it except for one bug with app
by CyberLizard on 2020/01/15 20:54
I love my Rocketbook. I use it for all kinds of things. I’m just having a problem where, if I go out of the app into others, when I come back the app is locked up and I have to restart it. Not a huge deal but an annoyance.
Helpful
by wolfester on 2020/01/15 14:07
I have the Rocketbook Fusion. The app is easy to use and the Rocketbook system over all has been very helpful in both my job and my studies. I haven’t been able to make the auto-title feature work properly yet and sometimes the app doesn’t “see” where the new file should be sent. But other than those two minor things, the app does exactly what it is supposed to do.
Not bad but file template flaw
by MisterShrek on 2020/01/15 13:23
The real value in this application is the workflow. Streamlining the process of saving these details is valuable. Part of this value is in the naming convention available via the templates. Currently however each time the app is re-opened the file naming template resets, killing any value gained from this thoughtful feature.
Dude it’s actually so useful
by yes yes plz on 2020/01/15 04:55
Like wth, why did no one come up with this earlier. I feel like I should’ve known about this for years. I have the same feeling I got when I found out about Shazam (the music finding app). It’s unlimited amount of scans, thus unlimited amount of pages, and the app allows you to organize them into folders and stuff (not like an entire huge structure, but good enough for me). Just great.
RocketBook is needed for college!
by BriLeeBeana on 2020/01/15 02:45
I just love my rocket book. I use it in every class and it makes it so easy to keep all my notes organized. I have tried typing notes but it just wouldn’t keep me focused. With this I can take notes and draw pictures during lecture, plus do my homework and instantly make it a PDF!
Best purchase ever made!
by V.Fox on 2020/01/13 19:13
From lecture notes to grocery lists I use Rocketbook for everything. D & D Game plans? Boom! Sent to my personal email. Psych notes? Click! Sent AND transcribed to my school email for study group. Grocery lists for the hubby? Swipe! Sent to his and my email for safe keeping. Bye bye millions of half empty notebooks! This has been the most economical, environmentally friendly, and easiest purchase I have made.

Spam Notifications You Should be Thankful For
by newpolluter on 2020/01/04 03:13
Today the developer sent a push notification to my device that was an ad letting me know notebooks were on sale. After I mentioned on Twitter that this seemed like bad practice, they doubled down and told me I was “lucky” to have received it. Nope. Their suggestion was disabling app notifications entirely from within iOS, when the obviously more user-friendly choice would be to give users the ability to opt-out of these messages from within the app, especially since we never opted into them to begin with. Bad business practice and worse user experience.
Not scanning properly
by Alyssiarose1231 on 2020/01/02 21:09
When I first downloaded the apt everything was fine. Now I can’t scan bundle into OneNote.
Love My Rocketbook’s and the App
by Bonnie Prancer on 2020/01/02 18:04
Rocketbook and the app means I can be digital while taking hand written notes everywhere. I love all three Rocketbook’s I have; Fusion, Everlast and Mini. If you like the feel of pen in paper and want a digital life, do not hesitate to get a Rocketbook and the app.
Busy Medical Practice
by Hopster later on 2020/01/01 03:06
Love this notebook, works well for my practice. Frixon pens aren’t any good. Hope they fix them soon. Sometimes they don’t write.
Neat idea, poor execution
by Edwin Rasmussen on 2019/12/29 21:22
The PDF quality is barely good enough to be considered a viable substitute for pen and paper. the app features are pretty basic, transcription feature (text recognition) is terrible, and storage/email/sync options are not robust. Also when scanning, the camera will display that the full page is being scanned correctly (all 4 corners mapping correctly onto the image, good lighting conditions, etc.) but then when the PDF preview comes up before sending, the bottom part of the page is cut off sometimes and not others. Seems to be no rhyme or reason which pages is messes up or why. VERY FRUSTRATING! I end up taking regular pictures with my phone and saving them in a custom album titled “notebook.” I could do that with a REGULAR notebook.......just saying. Please, software engineers—fix this and it will be a product well worth purchasing. Right now, I feel like I bought a gimmick that makes my creative process feel frustrating and more difficult.
iPad App a Pleasant Surprise... But...
by FieldGuide on 2019/12/29 01:29
Would be nice to have an app like this work in landscape mode as wel so when using a keyboard such as the iPad Pro foldable keyboard, you don’t have to keep rotating the iPad to portrait mode to view the app. I mean, if you’re making a full res iPad app anyway, may as well allow it to work well with it right? Same thing with being able to have it compatible with multiple apps / spit screen too. And finally, with a ‘login’ for the service, it would definitely be nice to have settings and destinations synchronized. Having to reset them again seems to defeat the main purpose of logging in IMO.
Life Changing!!!
by XDaveSpartanX on 2019/12/20 16:31
There is proven research that supports handwriting vs typing for creativity,learning, self reflection. However in today’s day and age it simply isn’t feasible to tote around 2-3 different journals ... and compiling and organizing information into actionable knowledge is near impossible with that system. Rocketbooks easy to use platform solves all those problems more!!!
The end.
by Wind-Up-Bird on 2019/12/18 16:56
I will never buy another regular notebook again. Rocketbook is such a great tool!!! I’m surprised it can transcribe my chicken scratch to text. I am a disciple of Rocketbook now ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

by D-R0M3 on 2019/12/18 06:36

Love it
by mel.,., on 2019/12/14 13:26
I love my rocket book. It is the best thing I’ve bought this whole year. I keep buying notebooks but this eliminates that need. With more convenience because I don’t have to have the notebook in my hands to remember my notes. Any study notes I have I can look at from the app or one of my backups. My only reservation is the pens. I always keep 2 on me because sometimes the pens start skipping. When the pens skip it makes it a little harder for the app to pick up what I wrote.
Highly useful but has some glitches
by Trolling_X_Koala on 2019/12/13 13:53
This is a great app for anyone who needs backups of notes or to send notes to a friend. OCR Transcribe is great and scans are usually really clean. Have started running into a glitch where the app locks up when trying to send to iCloud or any bundle scans.
Problems Scanning and sending
by Mikem118ncsu on 2019/12/11 17:03
Can’t seem to get my scans to send to email. Keep getting the same error “Error Sending, Failed to connect to email”. Tried to send it to Rocketbook via the feedback link and got “cannot upload Scan Error”. Seems like a good idea, but do far it’s failing to work and I can’t seem to find a way to contact the company for support. Update: found support through the app. Had to adjust my network settings a bit and now it is working. Was a little hard to find my way to support so knocking off 1 star but they got me fixed up pretty quickly once I found them.
Loving it!
by victoriaagc on 2019/12/10 14:54
This is such a nice and convenient way to store my notes! I’m currently a college student and using this for an online course and I’m loving it thus far. Also such a nice feeling when you write, very smooth.
This is no good if I can’t send to Evernote
by Maybe/Maybe not on 2019/12/09 23:14
Las test update logged me out, I can’t log back in thru Google. If I can’t send to Evernote, then this app is pointless for me.
I absolutely LOVE the use of the reusable notebook.
by The Review Maniac 7828 on 2019/12/06 20:15
Futuristic style, I got it in 2017. Highly recommend it.
Great system for scanning and organizing work notes
by KeithHML311 on 2019/12/06 13:47
Intuitive and easy to use interface. OCR is okay, not perfect. You can use without buying the notebook just by downloading and printing the pdf of the templates.
Ads...
by Daffydukc on 2019/12/03 17:36
Sometimes the app crops the margins more than other times leading to missing part of my notes., And this app has ads for more rocketbook products... I just want to quickly scan my notes and wipe down the pages without having to go through more steps.
An okay app with responsive developers
by Art and Grace on 2019/11/28 12:03
My original problem with the app was a fairly major difficulty I found with capturing the notebook. It’s probably a small thing that most people don’t run into. I have a disability, one of the symptoms of a medication I’m on is having hands that have a pretty steady ‘shake’. Over and over I tried to line up the notebook, and every time I was advised to keep the camera still. After 5 minutes of trying to capture a single page, I gave up in frustration, ready to give the app a 1 star review. However, I stopped myself and wrote the developer to ask for assistance. The response was almost immediate. I wrote them on a Saturday and had an email waiting for me on Monday (I was not upset they didn’t work on weekends). They gave suggestions and promised follow-ups if the ‘problem’ persisted. I took what they told me to do and I was finally able to capture the note. From 5 minutes of fail to 1 minute of success. The OCR is okay and I can still have a digital capture of my note(s). I love the fact that I can erase my notes and keep the notebook ‘forever’. Thanks for the responsive team and a very unique product.
So happy with this
by BenBerk5 on 2019/11/28 00:45
Rocketbook has been a really great purchase. I use it for school: to write notes, to study, and to doodle during boring classes. The app works really well and I’m very pleased with it.
Great but transcription is glitchy
by K.J.P33 on 2019/11/27 16:12
I love the Rocketbook, the feel of the notebook and the ease of scanning. The only issue is transcription. The app is set to transcribe for every service but only does it 1 out of 10 times. It says it’s transcribing, but then the document on evernote appears only as a title, with a completely empty document.
fix it
by anonanonaonymous9896877 on 2019/11/11 13:31
stopped sending scans anywhere after update. notebook is a waste of money if app doesn’t function.
Please fix the updates.
by goldTench on 2019/11/07 02:19
So, the updates totally ruined the naming system of this app. Before, I was able to use characters like slashes and question marks that were replaced with underscores for the real file name for the eMail, text message or eStorage upload (e.g. Drive). Think about this as a gallery or library of scanned images. However now, neither the slash or the question mark is permitted in the title; the title now is directly the file name, and these cannot have the symbols I used. I accidentally tapped on a sloppy sketch of a barn swallow and a chimney swift, but I had a slash within the name. Before it looked like "swallow/swift", now it looks like "swallow_swift", which is not as easy and pleasant to look at. If possible, please fix this?
I love Rocketbook!
by Jessth3best on 2019/11/05 16:44
The Rocketbook Fusion has been the best planner I’ve ever had. I love being able to scan and send my notes directly to my email so I don’t have to type them up all over again. The app is so easy to use as well.
Works for this Lefty!
by StephanaG on 2019/11/03 15:36
I was concerned that my left handed writing would smear it all into uselessness and I decided not to buy the notebook, but my sweet husband saw my interest and bought it for me anyway. And it works for me!! No smearing problem and I am delighted with all I can do with this app!
Best notebook in the World
by paw.15 on 2019/11/02 20:50
I absolutely love Rocketbook it is the smartest notebook in the world just outstanding
Great! I just wish Notability was supported
by Ceh2911 on 2019/11/02 05:12
I really hope the app will soon be able to send scans to Notability since I use that so frequently it would help me keep my note taking in the same place as my scanned notes and not have to fuss about with imports and copying so much.
AMAZING PRODUCT!!!
by shamiaslp on 2019/11/01 15:45
The Rocketbook has been one of the best purchases I’ve made!!! I love that I don’t have to keep up with multiple notebooks and can organize files within my google drive!!!

I have been using the system of app plus rocket book for six months for work. I take a lot of notes, and in that time, I have not taken one page of notes on regular paper. This system is great.
Awesome
by Czar73 on 2019/10/31 19:14
Pros: I love I can take notes and save them then erase it all with water and start over. No more need for buying bundles of spiral paper notebooks. Cons: I just with the books came with a pen holder.

Links with Google Classroom
by Liddybird on 2019/10/20 20:27
Such a great app for the Rocketbook and Google Classroom. Makes things so convenient!
Why?
by swcbn on 2019/10/20 00:03
If I could give this app 0 stars I would. Don't get me wrong here, the Rocketbook itself is great and I love it. But the app needs work. Especially the fact that it does everything automatically. If it could be done manually, it would've been fine, because then when I see the app has locked onto my page, I can just say, "yep, that's good" and be done with it. Instead, I take two hours to scan one page because the app can start scanning, but doesn't want to finish the job. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll keep the Rocketbook, but I'll use Scannable. It makes my life easier.
This book is wonderful!
by Ml melon on 2019/10/17 01:46
I love the rocketbook! It works so well. I just wish that differences in colored pens would show up more clearly once they are scanned (like black, purple, and blue). I’ve also noticed that the frixion markers leave a bit of a shadow once they are erased. The markers also don’t show up as clearly after being scanned. I’ve resorted to just using the pens. I just wanted more colors for the diagrams I draw in my book. When I use just the pens, everything is perfect!
Love it!☺️
by AngelaPierson on 2019/10/09 18:01
This app is soo cool! You get buy the Rocketbook, you download the app, and you can use the same page thousands of times, honestly IF I could I would rate it a 10. Great app!
Love it! But...
by msmeliss1092 on 2019/10/09 16:03
What’s the use of having this if the app doesn’t work? Currently when I try to open the app, it automatically closes out. Very disappointed. I love this notebook otherwise and I really hope there’s a solution soon.
Started with 1, but ended with another
by gadgetm on 2019/10/04 05:59
My first Rocketbook was the letter size Everlast. I found it great for meeting notes and ongoing projects. I also found it a bit overkill as far as size goes. Pages were mostly half -full. The letter size was bigger than my tablet ( which I lugged around with me). When I saw the Fusion Executive size, lt look more of what I was looking for. Purchased it. After 2 days with it, it was the perfect size for the way I took notes. I also thought the 7 pages of templates were not going to get much use, but quickly re-purposed them, and now part of my workflow.
Awesome Concept, Needs Improvement
by LuvMyBoys0609 on 2019/10/04 02:07
Drawing or writing in a special notebook and saving it online is a really cool concept. However, at least in my experience, the scanner is really finicky and takes forever to finally scan the page
Great but...
by GpGBoSS on 2019/10/04 00:41
I really enjoy the product and the app, but I was really hoping for support to send files directly to the new Amazon Drive.

Rocket my Way To Digital Notes Retention
by Don in Bucks on 2019/10/03 12:04
Unbelievably impressed by this outstanding product. I have all my digital records retained for over 30 years but notebooks remain in storage. I tried other solutions in the 90s and early 2000s but not were satisfactory. Finally I have an easy, accurate solution that fits my electronic filing system perfectly. And it’s so easy to use. My first scan attempt felt a bit awkward but I adapted by the 3rd time and now it’s a natural process. So after 4 days and 20 pages, each in my permanent digital storage and filed by appropriate client/topic I know this is a superior solution. Bravo and *****. Those bafoons on Shark Tank had no clue.
Rocket Book is great!

So I’m on my second semester of using rocket book as my only note book for school and the paper less experience has made my backpack so much lighter. If you’re on the go and commute to school this is definitely a great mobile solution to weight and conveniency. I use this notebook for every thing. And the ability to have so many different subjects programmed in is great. There’s plenty of space for 16 credits of classes without the space or weight hassle of a regular five subject and one one subject notebook. The only problem I encounter is with the pens. While they dry very fast, they will smear if you touch them without giving them a couple seconds to dry. And since I’m left handed that means I have to pick up my hand as opposed to resting it comfortably on the page. I know it’s definitely not as easy to fix as a software problem but it is something that exists and people should be aware of. However the pros to this notebook vastly outweighs the cons and I think anyone can and should give this a try. The paperless experience alone is worth it!

I travel a lot for work and taking notes on my laptop is the easiest way to ensure I have a file to share and format for a report. But laptops run out of battery; outlets are lacking or inconvenient; start up takes time; the process can be noisy; and if there is no good WiFi, the file can be lost with a sudden shutdown. Rocketbook allows me to take notes in a more friendly and interactive manner. I can share them immediately from phone contacts and email or text. The OCR works well enough to enable me to get a good start on my report. Plus, my notes are filed to the project so the whole team can access them. They are not hidden in my private notebook. The one downside is the need to write legibly to get a really good OCR translation.
Rocketbook is Space-X for the day to day
by spooky rogue on 2019/10/01 03:58
The primary feature I was seeking from this app/ product combo was one demonstrated in the demo where you can scan the top and bottom page of the mini without turning the book for quick entry at the end of the day, I’m a manager and make reports and lists for my employees using this app and forward it to a shared drive for easy access but the tediousness of turning the page, flipping the notepad to scan, and flipping it again gets tedious. Please tell me there’s something you’re working on in the app.... otherwise all functions work great.
Wonderful & Simple
by Shalala13! on 2019/09/30 12:41
The Rocketbook itself is a superb invention so I had high expectations for the app and it delivered!! It has an aesthetically pleasing appearance with helpful yet simple features/options. It is straight-forward and easy to navigate for the less technologically inclined, but has all the options a more tech savvy person would need. I value quality and simplicity and this app has it all!
Old soln and not very good one
by Splainfish on 2019/09/28 17:16
This is just a glorified scanning app. Big deal, and you have to clean pages? What’s the point. It did not even scan as reliably as the the Scannable app and that works with any paper.
Best Notebook
by rt146 on 2019/09/26 22:33
The whole Rocketbook ecosystem is great! I love how simple it is to get my class notes safely to the cloud and not having to carry multiple large notebooks around in my backpack. Highly recommend you get this.
Great, easy, and fun to use!
by peaNUT321 on 2019/09/24 18:32
I’m really enjoying using my Rocketbook Fusion notebook and app. It makes it easy to take notes, upload them to the cloud and convert them to PDF or Word doc if I need to edit something.
Keeps loosing the custom defaults
by LotharGores on 2019/09/24 17:25
Keeps crashing in iOS 13 and not remembering the defaults I set rendering the app including the note pad useless.
Amazingly convenient for a high school teacher
by celeratis on 2019/09/14 21:39
I’ve been using a Rocketbook for the first month of the school year and it has been working effortlessly. I teach high school science and write class notes under a document camera. Then at the end of the day I choose the best version and *boom* in seconds it’s a pdf titled with the date and in a google drive folder. On my class resources page, (my school uses Canvas but it would work anywhere) I have a link to the notes google folder labeled “click here for class notes” so I don’t have to constantly update that page. This replaced a multiple step process I used last year. 10 minutes saved every time we have class notes really adds up. And the material get online quicker since I don’t have to put it off until I have more than 30 seconds to deal with it. I’ve also trimmed the borders off of a problem or two on a worksheet and laid the piece of paper in the middle of a blank Rocketbook page and *viola!* the solutions are popped in the folder for students. Fan-freaking-tastic. My only complaint is that the frixion pens are will smear when you try to erase immediately after you write. You almost have to wait a few seconds before erasing which isn’t ideal when you’re in front of a class.
Love it
by iluvtwilight123 on 2018/07/28 15:42
As a college student, the majority of my homework is online and any actual work that I do is not collected. This notebook (and the corresponding app) makes it easy to write out homework problems and not waste paper, it’s all stored in google drive (or whatever other cloud service you prefer to use). Plus, the update that allowed the PDFs to be bundled made it easy to keep homework and notes in one file for easy viewing and reviewing. The notebook itself is incredibly lightweight and while I do carry spare notebook paper just in case I have to turn in something that class, it saves me from having to haul around heavy notebooks all day (no lockers in college, you know, when we finally have more than 4 minutes to go to a locker). I’d say the only downside is that I do take a lot of notes and have a lot of homework so I fill up the notebook in about a week-1.5 weeks and scanning and erasing the entire notebook can be very time consuming, especially when you still have a lot of work to do, but it is still totally worth it for the amount of paper I save by having electronic notes. I really wish this notebook had been around in High School when I used even more paper, but I’m glad I have it for college.
Fantastic Concept and Execution
by njzeus on 2018/11/02 20:32
Absolutely love these notebooks. I have the 5x7 and 8x11 sizes and they are infinitely useful. You can send PDFs or jpgs, even gifs by scanning pages in sequence. With 36 pages per notebook, you can keep a fair amount of work before wiping down and reusing the pages. Additionally, the RocketBook website has printable graph, music staff, and lined writing pages in 5x7 and letter size; these obviously aren’t reusable, but are useful nonetheless. As a matter of fact, if you wanted to try the concept before buying one of the notebooks, you could print a few pages and try it out with the app first. I wish that this was around when I was in college; one small, light notebook for all of my classes that I can scan my notes from. The transcription feature also works fairly well, so your writing can be transcribed to type when you publish the page. The only drawback is that you have to use special Pilot Frixion pens, but they are readily available, relatively inexpensive, and come in many colors. (FYI, I use it with email and Google Drive and have had no issues. I can’t vouch for other compatible services: iCloud, OneNote, Slack, Dropbox, Evernote, or Box.)
Perfect for Teachers
by DMGal4life on 2019/07/21 17:18
As an educator, I love the versatility and smart features of RocketBook. My go to is the RocketBook wave. I used to spend $50-$60 a year on a custom lesson planner. Even for the expensive ones, I still didn’t get it exactly as I wanted. With the RocketBook Wave, I can customize it to make it exactly what I need. I use the non-frixion pens for my basic borders of calendars and headings, but then use the friction pens to fill everything in. It is so nice to upload all my calendars in one space instantly. The most satisfying part is erasing it all and getting to use it again the following year. RocketBook is a company that is very focused on its customers. They REALLY listen to the feedback. A suggestion on the message boards for a while was lined instead of graph style dots as an option. Viola! It is an option to buy now. There are also the RocketBook beacons coming out soon after a very successful Kickstarter campaign. THIS COMPANY IS WORTH IT! They care. They are smart. They are evolving. I will never buy a notebook from anyone else.
An okay app with responsive developers
by Art and Grace on 2019/11/28 12:03
My original problem with the app was a fairly major difficulty I found with capturing the notebook. It’s probably a small thing that most people don’t run into. I have a disability, one of the symptoms of a medication I’m on is having hands that have a pretty steady ‘shake’. Over and over I tried to line up the notebook, and every time I was advised to keep the camera still. After 5 minutes of trying to capture a single page, I gave up in frustration, ready to give the app a 1 star review. However, I stopped myself and wrote the developer to ask for assistance. The response was almost immediate. I wrote them on a Saturday and had an email waiting for me on Monday (I was not upset they didn’t work on weekends). They gave suggestions and promised follow-ups if the ‘problem’ persisted. I took what they told me to do and I was finally able to capture the note. From 5 minutes of fail to 1 minute of success. The OCR is okay and I can still have a digital capture of my note(s). I love the fact that I can erase my notes and keep the notebook ‘forever’. Thanks for the responsive team and a very unique product.
Life Changing
by D.S. Byrd on 2018/11/30 15:28
I am a writer, however, the chore of keeping up with all of my brainstorming papers and notebooks where I just wrote down some ideas is awful. I had maybe 10 different notebooks that I had written ideas, snips of stories, or just a list of names, and those were all scattered. Rocketbook gets rid of the need to get a new notebook every time I fill one up and completely eliminates my paper usage. If you’re like me, you think better when you actually put pen to paper rather than typing. I don’t mind typing, but writing my stuff down or drawing out brainstorming diagrams really gets the juices flowing. I can now keep up with everything I write down. I use Google Drive for all my stuff too and Google Docs has text recognition so if I write out an excerpt for a book, I can use Rocketbook to upload it then convert it. I love Rocketbook and have been telling everyone I know about it.

Notebook is a like, app is a Meh...
by Atheron121 on 2020/01/17 10:09
I like having the ability to reuse the pages, erase mistakes, and the potential of saving the work into a cloud storage. Execution of the app leaves something to be desired - the OCR is not robust, the pages are not scanned fully all the time, so I have to constantly check to make sure the app has, in fact, captured all of the info, and (a big one for me, but may not be for others), I use different color pens for not taking, and the app makes all of the colors SO DARK that there is no way to differentiate blues and people from black, red is barely visible. Light blue is as dark as the regular blue is supposed to be... I like having the colors to differentiate parts of my notes to make reviewing easier, but there is no point because of the quality of scans is so poor. Why have multiple colors if they all look the same in the end?!.. Also, the options for sending are broken, as well as the setting for naming convention - no matter how many times you may change the settings, they always end up being reset next time you open the app. Frustrating!
Great app and product
by mdestis on 2019/01/26 17:05
I received a Rocketbook as a gift and have loved every minute of it since receiving it. I love that there are enough pages that I don’t have to worry about erasing a page so quickly and I can keep all of my notes organized with the app. I didn’t believe that it would actually work, but it does. I just can express how much I love the app and the ease of use. The only thing I either haven’t figured out how to do, or the app doesn’t do, is that I cannot choose to send to only one email address unless it is my account email address. I used my personal email address for my account, but want to send notes to my business email and it will not allow me to take my personal email off of the email list to send. I don’t use that option on my notebook often, so it isn’t extremely important but I could see where it could be with someone else.
Absolutely brilliant
by Gopgor on 2018/10/06 04:56
I love the idea of this. I work in IT on the technical support team for an enterprise client. I oftentimes find myself using both a customer issued laptop as well as my company’s device. Unfortunately, I can’t easily share information across these devices. Because of this, I have often opted for a more analog note taking method. Prior to Rocketbook, I filled several Leichturn 1917s with notes on a large work project. Unfortunately, my copious notes were hard to search and reference, despite my detailed table of contents and journaling techniques. I was shown this technology by a business colleague and immediately fell in love. Now I store my notes in a variety of places. My only regret is that I can’t use it directly with either company’s enterprise OneNote/OneDrive account, but the other connectors help me merge everything together into one concise package.
OCR needs heavy optimization
by rose93ash on 2019/09/20 22:00
I use OCR, but would like to search my notes easier. I would like to use OCR with better functionality. The problem is I’m an engineering student, and OCR is optimized for English (I think). I understand it’s still a working process, but this company prides this notebook as being something wonderful for innovation and creativity. The sciences, like physics, help drive innovation, but when half the formula is Greek letter based OCR doesn’t transcribe well, if at all. I also can’t search my notes for formulas which is the most important thing I need. Also, please gather more writing samples of different styles, like cursive (if you haven’t). Basically, not everyone writes solely English character and in print. Plus the title naming OCR has yet to work for me: I wrote neatly, in print, and without any unrecognizable characters. Also, as this notebook becomes more popular could a bioplastic based notebook be used? Currently, the plastic can be recycled, but that doesn’t there aren’t better alternatives. (Except pages, most but not all accept this type of plastic.)
Great app, fast scans
by gympiemom on 2019/03/25 14:18
A few people have complained that this is just scanning. Although at times I agree I could scan my work; the app works a bit easier because I don’t have to be super accurate where I place the page. The shape and markings on the paper allow the edges to be recognized without having to line it up and press a button while oops I wiggled. Great concept. It does have it’s glitches: books wear out sooner than expected; the transcription is a great idea just needs some tweaking; email has stopped working; and the size and notebook options are limited. But good things too: customer service is quick to respond and very helpful and polite when they can’t help; books allow me to not have papers laying around; I love love love the frixon pens on the notebooks; the new smart titles allow me to not have to title the scan after the fact; and transcription option is useful if improved a bit.
Awesome invention
by Blackjack buff on 2019/09/05 16:03
I use the crap out of this! Especially in school. I would go through paper pads like not tomorrow with the amount of notes, assignments and projects for my classes. My only complaint would be it is not able to scan your writing and convert it to a text so you can upload in pages. I don’t like taking my laptop with me to work due to the area I work in and fear it will get stolen or broken with all the equipment I have with me so I hand write my assignments and type them up when I get home. Definitely be a time saver if it could convert however this doesn’t not stop me by far from using the product. I have recommended it to several people. Highly recommended can’t wait to see what Rocketbook may have in store in the near future. Easy to use, pen glides perfectly when writing and easy to clean off no special chemicals for clean up. Just simple cloth it comes with and water.
My penmanship is improving
by CandaceSoVan on 2018/12/29 17:30
Digital living had ruined my handwriting. I comforted myself that I wasn't wasting trees or paper, but I missed being able to jot things down -- or doodle! Now, I hand-write two to-do lists each day (one personal & one for home & family). I scan and preserve each both in the morning and at the end of my day (with check-offs, additions, etc.) It gives me a daily journal of both my accomplishments and my aspirations. And those unexpected things that come up. Why does this work better for me than all the lovely to-do apps I've tried? Dunno, but my handwriting is getting better. So I use my wee, pocket-sized Rocket Book every day. I haven't done much much with the larger one yet, but I'm sure I will. The app makes it very easy to send notes to different places or people. It's very cool and I've become a big ol' Rocket Book fan.
Great way to take notes
by Tommie3 on 2018/09/22 13:24
I've been using the Rocketbook Everlast for about a month now and have to say it's exceeded my expectations. I take a lot of written notes in my line of work that I need to archive for reference and backup. I can sometimes use MS Onenote or Notability (2 great e-note apps by the way) but there are times where its just more comfortable and easier to take written notes, especially when there are diagrams or you know you'll want to share the notes with others later. Rocketbook gives you the best of both worlds because you can archive your notes in a standard folder in your cloud drive or on one of your note taking apps. The only limit now is the number of compatible e-note taking apps. I'm hoping they'll being on some of the other note taking apps such as Notability soon.
I'm using it for class
by e756008 on 2018/01/19 06:13
The book itself is light and feels really nice to write on so I have been using it to take notes for my college classes. I personally feel that there are not enough pages in the notebook itself as it becomes full in just a week of notes/classes. what I am writing about, however, is that I would like to see a feature where when I scan, I click on the preview and it should take me directly to my most recent scan so I can double check the clarity of it in case my hand shook. at the moment, when I am scanning a bundle of notes, every time I want to preview my latest scan, I have to swipe all the way to the end of the bundle. That's the only thing I can think of at the moment. I'll update if I find something else, or if you actually implement what I described.
Neat idea, poor execution
by Edwin Rasmussen on 2019/12/29 21:22
The PDF quality is barely good enough to be considered a viable substitute for pen and paper. the app features are pretty basic, transcription feature (text recognition) is terrible, and storage/email/sync options are not robust. Also when scanning, the camera will display that the full page is being scanned correctly (all 4 corners mapping correctly onto the image, good lighting conditions, etc.) but then when the PDF preview comes up before sending, the bottom part of the page is cut off sometimes and not others. Seems to be no rhyme or reason which pages is messes up or why. VERY FRUSTRATING! I end up taking regular pictures with my phone and saving them in a custom album titled “notebook.” I could do that with a REGULAR notebook.......just saying. Please, software engineers—fix this and it will be a product well worth purchasing. Right now, I feel like I bought a gimmick that makes my creative process feel frustrating and more difficult.
Update: When the app doesn’t crash
by SociologyMajor on 2019/04/01 23:20
Original Post: “When the app doesn’t crash, this is a great product. However, every time I want to upload my work, I cannot, it crashes or stalls. This is the only app that has this issue on my iPhone X. Please revert back to a version of your app that works, because right now it’s trash and I’m fearful that I’ll lose my unloaded work if I uninstall. Fix this!” Updated Post: After contacting the support line, they informed me that their last update was the problem and a new update will be available in a few days, which was true. The app works as it’s supposed to, and I even used a few tricks with the OCR. I would like to see if the OCR can recognize new paragraphs or line spacing, because it’s a bit jumbled when it’s emailed. I will give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⛅️ for now, because I believe it can be improved, but it’s a good starting point.
Used for document development - professional
by Dkm09 on 2019/02/02 16:09
This is been an amazing product. I am a technical consultant with multiple customers at a time. In my work, I was taking extensive notes on legal pads. I used to need a pad for each document I worked on. Even with that method, it was hard to find the information I needed and keeping track of all those notebooks was very hard. Now I can take notes, snap the picture, the document is automatically named and sent to the right folder on Google docs. I can search the document for the information I need because of the ocr functionality they use. Really great product. BTW, I have tried using an iPad for my notes a couple of years ago and went back to the old fashioned way. Rocket book works much better.
Great with some flaws
by Buglykitty on 2019/07/02 00:36
I love the rocket book, not so much the app. I have the ever last, and use it with an iPhone XR. I’ll start off by saying that I love being able to put my notes in the cloud, but the app has some problems. On every 5 or so pages you scan, the app has a tendency to cut off about a centimeter for the edges on a page. Also, the handwriting detection it a nifty feature, but for me it’s really a gimmick. Unless you have the most perfect handwriting, it gets totally messed up. Also, it only transcribes through email, so not as useful as it could be. There is also a problem where if you do a bundle scan of 6 or more pages, it won’t send to OneDrive. The recognition of the app is flawless, and it never captures the surrounding of the page, just the page. Overall, I love the rocket book, and the app is a good, but could be a bit better.
OneNote Integration Fails
by Tom Stubbs on 2019/04/06 19:45
I have tried to get Rocketbook to work with OneNote for over six months and it has never worked. When I finally reached someone in support, he admitted that they are still having problems getting it to work with OneNote. I followed every suggestion in online help and they do not fix the problem. The Rocketbook app just always says that it cannot access my notebooks. It has permission to do so, but it still does not work. The list of OneNote notebooks that shows up is also bizarre, but there is no way for me to figure out where Rocketbook is looking to identify my OneNote notebook library. Support is horribly weak, as well. It is almost impossible to get a response and, when it comes, it is long after you sought it. I have seen folks for whom it works, but it has never worked for me. It was a waste of my money and, to hear their support, they know it does not work reliably with OneNote and they cannot fix the problem (yet). It is a great idea and a great sounding product, but steer clear of you want to use it with OneNote.
Rocketbook Rocks!
by Atbluebonnet on 2018/09/07 12:37
I have a thing about not wasting paper, so the Rocketbook Everlast immediately intrigued me. I now own 3 of them to use for different purposes and absolutely LOVE them! They’re lightweight to carry, allow you to backup ALL your notes to your computer, and very durable. Also, the company is great to work with & provides excellent customer service. I had an issue and it was addressed within less than 24 hours. My only frustration is that there isn’t yet a cover of some type for the Everlast that you could insert it into and that would contain space for business cards and a pen so you’d have one thing to carry into a customer meeting & yet have all you need right there with you. Hopefully they’ll develop some kind of cover like that soon!

Love This Product and App
by Travix1516 on 2018/01/12 05:05
I absolutely love this product. I've been using this for both personal and work related note taking since I got it. Simple to use, scans are great, and it functions exactly as advertised. The Frixion pens work great. Writing with them on the Everlasting feels smooth and natural. The included pen works extremely well, though the pack I purchased because I wanted the other colors seem to work marginally better than the included pen. I would recommend grabbing a pack of them for the flexibility of the extra colors, if not for the slightly smoother writing. All in all it's one of my favorite tech products of recent years. I raved about it so much a friend ended up buying it, my sister bought one for her husband, and I bought my dad one. Thanks Rocketbook.
Amazing
by Evilblah on 2019/03/24 20:32
I do a lot of game design in notebooks or loose sheets of paper and I always end up with tons of iterations laying around taking up space. Scanning or photographing all of this and then destroying the physical copies or taking time to compile PDFs from all the photos is always a pain. Enter Rocketbook. This notebook is amazing! I have three now and use them exclusively for all my design work and sketches. I can then use the app to take images, create PDFs, and then instantly send them to my backup (Google Drive), my email, my business partners email, and our shared work drive. It’s amazing! Then I can wipe the book clean and continue designing. No extra papers laying around, no shredding papers, nothing. So nice. App is great for setting up destinations and reviewing what you’ve captured. I love it.
Love it and bought a second
by JoanOH on 2019/09/10 23:52
I’m a list maker. A serious list maker. I start every day with a cup of coffee and pen and paper to create my To Do List for the day. Until now, I’ve used a simple composition notebook for my lists. I’ve downloaded so many apps, trying to find one to meet my simple list needs, but have always returned to my notebooks. No more! Rocketbook is perfect for those of us who make lists, save lists, and refer to past lists. It’s easy to use right out of the box. It offers me lined pages or dots, and I use both. I like it so much I ordered a 2nd Rocketbook (the mini) to carry in my purse for quick notes. It’s a simple step to save my lists to my Cloud of choice, or share it in email. There is nothing I don’t love about my Rocketbook!
Amazing App! Only Minor Inconveniences
by BDub 2000 on 2018/08/21 02:53
I’m a college student and have been using Rocketbook for some time now. It is SO easy to organize the notes I take in class and have their scans automatically sent to files I set up on Microsoft OneDrive. The app runs flawlessly and the Handwriting Recognition has been incredible. It makes it so easy to search key phrases in my many pages of notes. The only slight inconvenience I have found is that there is only a “blanket” Naming Template. It would be nice to have separate Naming Templates for each filing symbol (Each symbol is for a different class) as well as a way to insert the “##Title##” from the Handwriting Recognition into a pre-existing Template. Once again, Rocketbook is an amazing tool and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Awesome notebook
by Erkbae1 on 2019/03/15 13:52
I am someone who makes a ton of lists and just writes down random things that I need to look up later in the day and this notebook is so convenient. Instead of having a lot of scraps of paper just floating around in my purse I can jot everything down in my Rocketbook notebook and scan it to the app for later. The ink does take a few seconds to dry but it’s not a big issue. I currently have the mini but will soon be purchasing the executive. I am currently waiting for the new product for the whiteboards and I’m excited to be able to scan our whiteboard ideas/ drawings to the app as well. The quality of the scans is really good and I have a couple of apps tied into the Rocketbook app where I can send my scans as well.
Totally a lifesaver
by LucioRenfield on 2019/02/24 14:23
I love this thing! I’m an aspiring writer and honest truly I spend hours during the week taking notes on paper and then typing them back up in my laptop in the evening. With the text transcriber going to my email and a cloud with just one scan is a lifesaver! I can’t tell you how much work I’ve lost just because I forgot to back things up on a cloud storage right as my computer dies. If you find yourself writing throughout the day like I do I highly recommend this. It’s made my life a lot easier and I don’t have to carry multiple notebooks with me. When I fill up this book I can clean the pages and start over fresh with the previous pages already saved and backed up.
So far so good
by Kkkk😜 on 2018/01/16 01:18
I have been using this app for almost a month now and so far everything seems to be going pretty well. It has definitely helped me stay organized by scanning everything into its proper folder and I love that I am not going just wasting paper, I can just continue to reuse the notebook. The only thing that I do not like is that it does not allow me to scan multiple pages into/ as ONE pdf file. Each page is its own individual pdf file. When I scan on my adobe app, I can scan multiple pages and have the option to all be on one pdf file, not each page be its own, like on this. I constantly use my tablet to go over my notes but if i take several pages of notes in class in one day I have to switch back between all the different individual files. I hope a new update could fix this!!!!
Loved it at first, but needs a few tweaks to keep it useful

I was initially very excited about the Rocketbook. I prefer to hand write my notes, but want to have them with me on my devices. I like the reusability of the Everlast pages. I would like it if you made these pages with 3 holes punched in them for use in a 3-ring binder. I have used an Everlast page for my To Do list at work. I cut the rough spiral edge off and glued a page to part of a sheet protector to make my own. Unfortunately, I have to glue it again every few weeks. I also would like to be able to scan directly to my Files on iCloud. I don’t want to have to download/move files from email or the Rocketbook folder on iCloud. There is a different scanning app that allows me to save PDFs directly to my Files. Then I can have them in the folder I want on my Mac and on my phone.
Amazing
by Jtdude63 on 2018/09/08 23:34
One of the best purchases I have ever made. This makes uploading notes and homework online extremely easy, especially in an educational environment when everything has become streamlined and online. The notebook is so lightweight that you barely even notice it, and the easy to use app allows me to upload a days worth of notes in seconds. I only wish that there were 8.5x11 size Rocketbooks that had more than 36 pages (36 pages is more than enough for average use, I just prefer to have more so I can use it more often). Rocketbook is especially useful in college when walking between classes! I have recommended this wonderful design to all of my friends and family!
Managing multiple notebooks?
by HydePark39 on 2018/09/30 13:07
I have two Rocketbooks, one for professional/work related business and one for personal, with different set of destinations assigned for each book. My child also has a rocketbook color. It would be helpful to be able to setup different profiles or labeled notebooks within the app and toggle to either user x or notebookx. I asked tech support about the best way to manage this and the recommendation was to use a different iphone, one for work and one for private (seriously??) or have fewer options for destinations because they have to be divided up between different notebooks. That also means that my child, who uses my phone to send her drawings to the cloud and grandparents (because she’s a kid and doesn’t have a phone), can accidentally send her drawings to my work destinations. Not a great setup.
Useful!

I usually don’t write reviews unless I’m upset with something, but this app is an exception! I bought a Rocketbook recently to help me take notes for books I’m writing (I’m an aspiring author) and it’s really useful how everything is saved in the cloud. Since I pay for iCloud storage, I naturally would like to have things saved there, but I can’t choose the folder it saves to. Of course, I would like this feature, but I know it’s an apple-related security issue and the problem isn’t with the app itself. I completely recommend if you find yourself wanting to take paper notes but still have the advantage of having it saved In the cloud. Thanks for reading!!
Truly Life Changing!
by Psychomom3168 on 2019/02/06 01:27
I’m a math teacher, and these notebooks are wonderful for classes where working a problem uses an entire sheet of paper. I write out my notes and example problems, scan them, then pull them up to show in class. My students can do their work, then scan it and email it to me for grading. They also use their notebooks for taking notes on the current chapter, which they can scan and keep for reference. They get the writing exercise to help them learn to do the problems (instead of just punching buttons on a calculator), they can find their notes, and they don’t lose their homework before turning it in!
Great for students, adults, ecofriendly folks
by julia-pruch on 2019/06/06 23:39
I love my rocketbook! Received it as a gift and started using it to keep my notes for studying for the MCAT. It’s easy to use, reduces the amount of paper I use drastically, and allows me to access my notes online anywhere without a large notebook. My mom saw me using it and asked me to order one, she loves it now too! I recommend buying an extra pack of frixion pens, the color pack if you like colors, as the one pen that comes with it, runs out quickly. Great way to stay organized and not have a bunch of papers floating around. The app is great to upload notes directly to google drive in different folders.
So useful
by Hpmoon on 2019/01/12 00:39
I’m outrageously controlling over what content goes into what book. At first this made me feel uneasy, as everything can go into one book, but after my first delegated scan I felt so relieved that everything went to the proper internet resource. So so so so satisfying. And then I had to erase the pages, which almost broke my heart until I looked at my previously scanned pages on my google drive and felt so much better knowing everything was perfectly organized. Such. A. Great. Buy. I’ve bought colored Frixion pens and highlighters to further satisfy my organizational needs, and it scans just as well. (Purple is a little dark, but still good)
Rocket my Way To Digital Notes Retention
by Don in Bucks on 2019/10/03 12:04
Unbelievably impressed by this outstanding product. I have all my digital records retained for over 30 years but notebooks remain in storage. I tried other solutions in the 90s and early 2000s but not were satisfactory. Finally I have an easy, accurate solution that fits my electronic filing system perfectly. And it’s so easy to use. My first scan attempt felt a bit awkward but I adapted by the 3rd time and now it’s a natural process. So after 4 days and 20 pages, each in my permanent digital storage and filed by appropriate client/topic I know this is a superior solution. Bravo and *****. Those bafoons on Shark Tank had no clue.
Love everything about it!
by DemaIskander on 2018/01/18 05:56
I love my Rocketbook EVERLAST notebook because I get the same satisfaction of handwriting my notes with the advantage of being able to upload and save them to my computer. So far I’ve mainly used it for grad school note taking. As someone who has always been more into hand writing my notes over typing them, this is a perfect way to continue doing that and save some trees at the same time! I also love that there are colored pens and highlighters because color coding is essential for my note taking habits! Overall, it’s a great product and I wish I had it sooner!!! Definitely recommended to everyone and anyone!
Love this notebook and app!
by tjh952 on 2019/09/04 18:08
This has been life changing for me. I like to go old school in meetings by putting pen to paper but had trouble keeping everything organized or finding the right page, even with bullet journaling. I tried using OneNote but can’t always type my notes when I’m sharing my screen or presenting. The Rocketbook notebook is a perfect solution. The transcription is a work in progress, as evidenced by its beta status, but still helpful. Loved my executive sized Everlast so much that I bought a Fusion. I’m loaning the spare to my colleagues so they can test drive it before purchasing. I think I have some converts already.
The Best
by xgravity23 on 2019/08/12 04:29
I use my Rocketbook every day. I have a letter sized one that lives at my desk for conference call notes, and an executive sized one that lives in my purse for notes on the go. I use it to take hand-written notes when typing in my iPhone or writing in my iPad might look rude, or when I just want to write. Then, I can send the scans to OneNote or Google Drive, depending on what project the notes or for. Or if I need a transcription, I’ll also copy to my email. Worth every penny. I’m a Rocketbook evangelist, too. I tell everyone who loves notebooks/office supplies or technology about how great they are! The app works seamlessly every time. No complaints!!
Started with 1, but ended with another
by gadgetm on 2019/10/04 05:59
My first Rocketbook was the letter size Everlast. I found it great for meeting notes and ongoing projects. I also found it a bit overkill as far as size goes. Pages were mostly half -full. The letter size was bigger than my tablet ( which I lugged around with me). When I saw the Fusion Executive size, lt look more of what I was looking for. Purchased it. After 2 days with it, it was the perfect size for the way I took notes. I also thought the 7 pages of templates were not going to get much use, but quickly re-purposed them, and now part of my workflow.
Please fix the updates.
by goldTench on 2019/11/07 02:19
So, the updates totally ruined the naming system of this app. Before, I was able to use characters like slashes and question marks that were replaced with underscores for the real file name for the eMail, text message or eStorage upload (e.g. Drive). Think about this as a gallery or library of scanned images. However now, neither the slash or the question mark is permitted in the title; the title now is directly the file name, and these cannot have the symbols I used. I accidentally tapped on a sloppy sketch of a barn swallow and a chimney swift, but I had a slash within the name. Before it looked like "swallow/swift", now it looks like "swallow_swift", which is not as easy and pleasant to look at. If possible, please fix this?
Great Concept and Great Customer Service
by Mfromhamburg on 2019/02/14 05:15
I’m someone who has saved all my work notebooks - going back 20 years and through 5 different companies- boxes and boxes full - taking up space in the garage, so it’s not easy to go back and find those notes from years ago. But no more - Rocketbook makes it so easy to keep a digital history if all my notes - and with OCR, it so easy to retrieve what I need. Thanks for such a great, earth-friendly solution! And their Customer Service is fantastic- I reported quality issue with one notebook and they replaced it promptly. Really cool concept and great product!
really helpful!
by independent clause on 2019/01/06 22:18
i got this from a friend for christmas because we’re both rly into finding cool sustainable stuff :)) its been really helpful and easy to use and the design is so nice!!! definitely would recommend :) it’s a little difficult if i have several classes in a day with long lectures to find time to scan and erase the book since our passing periods are only 10 minutes, but it’s worth it to save the planet :D it also means i don’t have to have a bunch of notebooks and note paper in my bag which is very nice! i just wish it was more widespread so more assignments could be digitized
Best Idea Ever!!!
by student reviews on 2019/03/10 15:02
I just got the notebook today and it is so cool! At my school we use laptops, and we can’t write notes on laptops unless you type them. I just got this notebook and it is awesome! I can save everything to my laptop and be able to write notes without ever running out of room! This is the coolest invention ever and I totally recommend it for everyone. It also saves paper and could definitely be the future way of taking notes all across the world! The app is also so easy to use- all you have to do is scan your notes and send them to your chosen location.
This is simply the most versatile notebook in the market.
by Eziothelegend18 on 2020/02/25 22:35
Man where do I start?... this is probably gonna be my notebook for the next couple of years, or longer if it last that long! I got the executive RocketBook with all the colored pens and I love the way they write on it. The app is an awesome addition to it! It’s reliable and lightning fast whenever I’m scanning pages. Everything works as advertised and I really appreciate it when companies advertise something that actually works the way it’s supposed to. Hats down to everyone in the team for making the notebooks and the app!
OneDrive support
by Kfordham on 2018/11/12 22:31
So far, I do like Rocketbook. However, I purchased this (& all the pens & highlighters for this paper) for work use. In the Destination selection options is OneDrive. The app connects but is unable to access the data and will not allow my OneDrive to be a destination. Since my work files are saved to OneDrive, i am unable to have Rocketbook save to my folder directly and instead have to email them to myself and then save to OneDrive. An extra step I don’t have tome for. The App Support link takes me to the Rocketbook website where I can search for answers but OneDrive search comes up empty. Would rate the app higher if I could actually connect to all the Destination options listed.
Works well, battery killer
by ConnorF42 on 2020/02/21 04:23
Works well in our research lab to scan in notebook pages. Biggest issue is that the app absolutely burns through my battery life (relatively old device, iPhone 6s). Minor issues with slow loading times after each scan, and it is hard to make minor edits to page titles without it selecting the whole title. Maybe that is an iOS issue though. A cool feature for the programmable titles would be some kind of counter. Next scan would be one number higher than previous scan, e.g. experiment 1, then next scan is experiment 2. Could be asked to set the initial number.
