I’ve been keeping a secret about a bad and wasteful habit that my husband has had for years…heck decades! My husband writes down every song, business idea and thought that pops up in his head. This man has probably spent thousands upon thousands (ok maybe I’m being a bit dramatic) on notebooks and loose leaf paper. So when Rocketbook reached out with a chance to review their reusable notebook I was ecstatic to say the least.
The Everlast notebook by Rocketbook feels like a traditional notebook but wipes clean for endless pages, notes, and doodles. The Everlast works with any pen from the Pilot Frixion line and is connected to all of your favorite cloud services. With Optical Character Recognition (OCR) features, the Rocketbook allows users to transcribe and search handwritten notes right in the Rocketbook App. The notebook comes with a black pen but we like to be “extra” sometimes around here and I picked up a 7Pack Pilot Frixion from Amazon which also comes with black, green, purple, light blue and red. You can use the eraser on your pen or the cloth that comes with the notebook.
I decided to steal it back from my husband and claim it for myself since I loved it so much. Because its nice and slim I could just throw it in my purse and not worry about it getting ripped or taking up too much space. You know you always come up with the best ideas when you’re out, about to go to sleep or just wake up? I’ve been keeping this close by and I love that I can jot down lists, blog topic ideas and even little doodles of things that I’d love to have printed on a shirt.
This particular style ranges in price from $32-34 and has 36 pages. And don’t forget its REUSABLE! The app is what helps take this notebook to the next level. Inside the app, you set up Rocket Symbols to create a system that organizes everything. There are 7 symbols at the bottom of each page that you can think of as subjects. Each of those symbols is what keeps it all organized in the cloud service that you choose. Rocketbook supports iCloud, Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, Box, Slack, iMessage, Microsoft OnDrive, Microsoft OneNote and email.
Using the eraser on the pen is great for quick fixes but to get the most wear and tear out of your pages using the cloth is the best. Also its best to wait and make sure the ink completely dries before you try to erase. Also don’t judge me by my sub-par drawing skills -_-
If you’re looking for a way to stop wasting so much paper and keep everything together in the cloud service you choose, the Everlast Rocketbook is a perfect option to keep everything organized. With Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Graduation season coming up I think these would make great gifts for those in your life that love techy things and eco-friendly products.
