The Rocketbook Is Still Going Strong After a Year of Use! Interacting With the Unique Notebook
Are you looking for a notebook that will help you organize your life? Tired of the same old notebooks with too many pages and not enough space to write on them? The Rocketbook is a new type of notebook that offers so much more than traditional notebooks. This unique notebook comes with features like pens with special ink, microfiber cloth, and an app. Find out how it helped me stay organized in my life.
What is Rocketbook
A Rocketbook is a reusable notebook. You can write on its pages using a special pen that allows you to erase it later using a microfiber cloth that comes with it. You can then write something on the pages again, allowing for a possibly infinite number of uses.
The special pen is known as the FriXion pen. It uses a special ink called the Pilot FriXion ink. This ink is what allows you to be able to erase what you have written on the pages. The FriXion pen comes in different colors for its ink which includes black, blue, red, turquoise, purple, green, and pink.
If you have an iPhone or any Android smartphone, you can download the free Rocketbook app and utilize popular cloud services such as Google Drive or Dropbox. You can then use your smartphone to scan the pages and have them sent to your online destination such as Google Drive. When you flip the Rocketbook pages, you can see a small QR code at the bottom of the pages and this is what makes it possible for your written note to get sent online.
My experience with the Rocketbook
I have purchased Rocketbooks in three different sizes: a big one, a medium, and a mini. They're called the Rocketbook Everlast. I also purchased the Pilot FriXion pens as well as the highlighters. I primarily used my Rocketbooks for taking notes about golf, readings, organizing, Sacred 6 daily, and using them as a journal.
After a year of usage, my Rocketbooks are still in good shape. They are hardy and they do really last. Writing on the pages feels good and satisfying. The FriXion pens feel very smooth and fluid. You can use the highlighters to highlight things and just like the pens, the highlights can be erased. I find myself using my Rocketbooks consistently when I'm out and about.
One thing I do with my Rocketbooks is to use a permanent marker to write things that can act as a template. As an example, I used it to write a template for my daily schedule. I then use the FriXion pens to write whatever I will be doing that day, erase them once I'm done with the day, and then write something new again the following day. This is just one thing that you can try doing with your Rocketbook.
My thoughts on the product after using it for one year
Rocketbooks are a good purchase to consider when you want to use something for notetaking in your business or whatever endeavors you have. The investment for it is minimal considering its low price as compared to more expensive devices like a tablet or an E Ink device like the reMarkable. It is a great notetaking system that you can carry with you anywhere. It's got a very slim profile. Some people might be put off by the spiral binding but it's quite okay to cut the pages too if you want. They can get beat up a little bit but these books do really last, and the pages can last a long time. You should consider getting one if you are serious about notetaking but do not have the budget to buy expensive devices that can be used for notetaking.
