The Good e-Reader 13.3 and 6.8 are the definitive digital note taking devices of our generation! These two devices have sold thousands of units over the course of the past few years and we are proud to introduce our first major firmware update.
The entire product line of e-readers have been running Android 4.04 which severely limits the number of apps you can install on your device. The new Google Android 4.4.2 update now allows popular digital note taking apps such as OneNote and Evernote to be run directly on the 13.3 and 6.8.
One of the big updates was our digital note taking experience. Drawing and writing notes is now 50% faster, which means you have pinpoint precision when using our stock app. The UI has also been overhauled and is more responsive to touchscreen interactions. There is a new sleep screen, which is higher resolution and basically we have remedied over 100 lingering bugs that made the Good e-Reader sluggish at times.
