Boogie Board Sync 9.7 Revolutionary eWriter
Welcome to the Boogie Board Sync 9.7 eWriter by Improv Electronics! I have been wanting one of these for some time and guess what?! Now I have one…
Now why did I want one? Mostly for work. I constantly have to carry a notepad everywhere I go. In my position I need to document everything. Not to mention as I walk through buildings employees are always tossing their concerns, questions, scheduling issues and more at me. I try to have them email me so I am not tasked with trying to remember it all – but often they forget to email.
Additionally as a family we spend a great deal of time on the road and I often pack several notepads. The Boogie Board helps to reduce all that clutter and allow me to still do what I need to do.
This board has a very modern, sleek design. It is thin, lightweight with a stylus included. It has on board SD memory allowing me to save thousands of pages… I cannot carry thousands of pages of paper. Bluetooth is enabled so I can have instant wireless connectivity. It is compatible with Evernote and Adobe Illustrator. I do not know Adobe Illustrator but I am familiar with Evernote. There is even optional free software for direct social sharing and virtual whiteboard mode.
The Boogie Board eWriter is charged by a micro-USB cable. I can share files with my computer, tablet, smart phone or share via Evernote.
The screen is pressure sensitive. For lighter lines, press lightly; for darker lines, press harder. That took a little getting used to but not a big deal.
Check it out in action. One image is simply a list of the dogs’ names in our house and the second was me just scribbling out a picture. I was much more used to the pressure sensitivity with the picture than I was with the words.
The eWriter is designed to replace pad and notebooks. Once you fill your page with words or images – simply SAVE or ERASE.
I can use this to work with my children on their homework, for work, play, blogging notes, review notes and more. The possibilities are endless. I no longer need to walk around with a different notepad for every hat I wear. This eWriter fits so much that I will not need to worry about paper for a very long time!

This board sells on Amazon for $94.73. There are also other Boogie Board versions: Jot 4.5 which is a pocket sized eWriter; Boogie Board original 8.5; Boogie Board original 10.5; and the Boogie Board Jot 8.5. Something for everyone. I am considering getting my kids the Jot 4.5 for our trips to Maine every weekend. That should keep them busy…
My son is autistic and getting him to write is a huge problem. However, he will work with the eWriter for hours – sometimes with the synced screen feature, sometimes without. He is now even taking it to school where he is willing to do his work if he can write on this eWriter. For years he has been a very reluctant writer. Even writing his name has presented huge struggles and tears. He knows how to write but clearly won’t. This product is definitely a Godsend.
