During my various tests of handwriting to text conversions, I found out that accuracy of LogiManage Converter is around 75%–90% which depends heavily on your handwriting, accuracy increases greatly if you have a nice cursive handwriting.

Testing LogiNotes Offline for Sketches

Next, we tried using LogiNotes completely offline, I called up my little brother to design something complex using LogiNotes, he came up with the following image.

For saving the image offline you just have to press the button on the receiver and it will save your work on the receiver itself.

After transferring the sketch to computer using LogiManage, it looked like this:

Impressive isn’t it.

Overall LogiNotes is a must have gadget if your work involves note taking, designing or other similar work, for eg, imagine the time it will save you by converting your university lecture notes to searchable text for later reference. The device itself is light weight and easy to carry around, save your work offline and later transfer it to computer, bundled LogiManage software helps in keeping your notes organized by saving them based on date, you can also easily create/rename categories for your notes.
