What is SCRIBZEE®
Where can I find the SCRIBZEE® App?
Does SCRIBZEE® work with any Notebook or Flashcards?
No, the SCRIBZEE® App was designed in house by hamelin brands inc. and therefore only works with hamelin brand notebooks, flashcards & other hamelin groupe products from around the world. To learn more about SCRIBZEE® and our parent company please visit the link here.
How do I know if my smartphone is compatible with the app?
The app is fully compatible with the latest version of both the ios & android operating systems. Please make sure you are using the most up to date version of the OS & App.
What are the markings in the corners?
SCRIBZEE® has special symbols built into the corner of all of our notebook & flashcard products. These symbols help the camera instantly find the edges of your notes and ensures the scans are cropped, angled & sized perfectly for later use.
Have you ever tried to take a regular picture of your notes and found it was at a weird angle, blurry, off-center, or missing some of the text? SCRIBZEE® tags work with the app to solve this problem and make sure you get a perfectly readable scan every time!
Do I need a special pen to use this?
Nope! SCRIBZEE® App works with any writing utensil, and OPTIK PAPER TM is especially designed to be crisp white & readable for even the faintest pencil scribbles. You can even write and scan both sides without worrying about bleed through. Visit our page on OPTIK PAPER TM to learn more about the quality of paper for physical handwriting.
