I will start blogging more frequently, mostly about what is going on with Scrybe, the thought process behind having some features and not having others, and other topics that fascinate us. I apologize for the for the lack of updates on the blog so far.
Phase 1 of the beta is approaching an end as scheduled and Phase 2 with the Thoughtpad will be starting in the next week. Several thousand more users will be added during Phase 2 and all the registered users will get Scrybe accounts in Phase 3.
Here are some of the comments by Phase 1 beta testers posted on the user forum:
Very impressed – very well thought out – elegant… *everything* about this product, launch, beta test, the app itself, presentation etc. has been *very* well thought out – congrats. MrBoJangles
…Off-line worked great. When I went back on line BAM it was re-synced…Very kewl, they sneak folding instructions on the print out. As I went to bed I remembered a task I forgot about from last week and wrote them on the paper print out…Every time someone saw me read it or write notes on it they were blown away and wanted to know how I did it. davidg
…I can tell that the product has been extremely well thought out, and the actual implementation has been done with the same care. Most of the kinks must have been already ironed out prior to rolling out the public beta, and I’m betting considerable usability testing as well.I’m also impressed with the beta process itself. An e-mail was sent with the phases it will go through, and the features to test. The developer seems to be watching the forums very closely, and following up to issues that have been found. zenrain
So far everything has worked great. It took a while for me to understand how to access information offline. I checked both remember me and enable offline sync (worked like a charm). ntwatson
Impressive that there are not many reported bugs in 4 or 5 days. I figured there would be about twice as many as I see in the forum. Kewl! wjgray
…I have been VERY impressed with the stability of the program. Usually beta software that I test will have crashed my systems 2 or 3 time by now… capn4is
This might well be the first calendaring product I actually like to use (except for the home-made thingie which I also haven’t used in a while). Manuzhai
I have played around, and printed out the Paper Sync just fine!! Everyone in the office thinks it is cool. Curt
