Remarkable

I own the Remarkable 2 tablet. If you’re trying to make a decision about buying a Remarkable 2, I can definitely recommend it. The key benefit of the Remarkable is the distraction-free writing experience.

What in any other circumstance would be a limitation is actually a plus – no apps, no browser, no email. It has one purpose, to be the ultimate replacement for pen and paper but with the benefits of digital e.g. mark up PDFs, write, sketch – literally anything you can do on paper, but with the added ability to export it anywhere.

I own an iPad Pro and the Remarkable 2 is superior in every way. The Remarkable 2 feels like paper to write on. It’s hard to explain unless you actually experience it. It’s up there with the “wow! factor” I had when I first used a Kindle and was like “wow! this looks like paper!”. The Remarkable is similar “wow! this looks like paper and feels like writing on paper!”.

If you’re an owner of a Remarkable 2, this page summarizes some of my tips, tricks, and guides for the Remarkable 2 tablet.

I hope you find this page useful.

When Remarkable updated the software from v2 to v3+ they made a frustrating change that closes the file you have open when it goes to sleep. In v2, when your Remarkable went to sleep, it would wake on the same file you had open. The good news is you can have the same experience on your Remarkable running v3 software, it is a simple option change and an easy fix—no hack needed. This will ensure your Remarkable goes to the last open page when it returns from sleep! In your Remarkable Tablet, tap Settings. Tap Storage. Toggle "Sync before sleep" to off. You're done! I hope this helps someone else! PS. I'm not associated with Remarkable, but if you think ...

Remarko is a native iOS app for managing sleep screens on your Remarkable. Customizing Remarkable sleep screens is a fun way to personalize your Remarkable. It's also a great security add-on - as you can put your name, address, and contact details on the sleep screen. But for real security, don't forget to also set a device PIN. I am not associated with the Remarko app. I am not the developer, so please don't ask for access or where to download it. Remarko is not yet publicly available and is in a very limited invite-only beta. No, I cannot get you on the beta test list. Sorry.
