    MobiScribe Wave - The e-ink writing tablet I want to recommend but can't

    I’ll always appreciate the MobiScribe Wave as being the device that proved an e-ink tablet has a place in my life, but after nearly five months of use, I’ve realized I can’t recommend the Wave to others. Or, perhaps more accurately, I can recommend it only with specific caveats and to a specific type of person with a specific mindset and specific expectations (basically anyone who’s looking for an affordable e-ink writing tablet, and who doesn’t mind dealing with some tradeoffs).

    Let’s take a look at the issues that make this device all but impossible to recommend.

    My problems with the MobiScribe Wave

    Most, if not all, of my issues with the Wave relate to the software.

    Settings

    Some settings randomly turn off, including:

    • WiFi
    • Google Play Store

    I could understand if the WiFi reset every time the device was restarted, though even that behavior would be unexpected. But I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to do something requiring the internet (such as downloading an app from the Google Play Store or F-Droid1), only to realize the WiFi had, for some unknown reason, turned itself off.

    Speaking of the Google Play Store, the app often disappears from my app listing. Fixing this issue requires opening the settings, selecting the Play Store category, and then clicking a button titled Google Play Store.

    Re-enabling the Google Play Store is especially annoying if you do it right after re-enabling the WiFi.

    PDF reader

    In the Cons section of my original post on the MobiScribe Wave2, I mentioned that the PDF app often opens a previously opened PDF file instead of the PDF file you selected. Fixing this issue requires closing the PDF app and then re-loading the file you wanted to read. While the fix is easy, it’s annoying, especially considering the issue appears to have become more common throughout my usage.

    Another issue with PDFs concerns disappearing annotations.

    Sometimes annotations may reappear; but more often than not, they appear to be gone forever.

    I know I’m not the only one who’s had this issue. See the video below for proof, and a visual explanation of the issue.

    One last note about the PDF reader: After the most recent firmware update, the erase button on my Lamy AL-Star stylus no longer works. I now have to select the erase option in the PDF toolbar, which is especially annoying if I’m viewing a PDF file in fullscreen mode (meaning the toolbar is hidden). I then have to exit fullscreen to the reveal the toolbar, select the erase option, and so on and so on . . .

    Before the update, I could cut these extra steps by simply pressing the erase button on the side of the stylus. But the removal of this option now makes reduces the value of additional features some styluses may offer.

    Lock screen

    When I had a security PIN activated, the device would randomly lock, sometimes while writing or annotating. And sometimes it would lock mere seconds after unlocking the device.

    To solve this issue, I decided to disable the lock screen and not write anything too secretive. This ‘solution’ makes the device less useful.

    Battery

    The battery life on the MobiScribe Wave is not great. I don’t know if this is due to a hardware limitation (the capacity of the battery) or if the software isn’t properly optimized for the device. Either way, the battery life is underwhelming.

    The good news is that I’ve yet to have the device fully discharge in a single day. An iPad, on the other hand, would likely die after only a few hours of heavy use.

    But I wouldn’t expect the MobiScribe Wave to make it through two days of heavy use without a recharge. (One bit of good news: In my experience, the device can easily remain charged for multiple days if idle and unused).

    Consumers have come to expect more from e-ink devices in general. It’s not crazy to expect e-ink devices that can go weeks between charges. And all the Wave’s peers–such as the Kindle Scribe, Remarkable 2, and devices from Supernote–appear to offer devices that knock the Wave out of the water in terms of battery life.

    It’s gonna be a ‘no’ from me, dawg

    All the issues above (and maybe even some others I forgot to mention) make the MobiScribe Wave nearly impossible to recommend. I can’t ask anyone else to part with his or her money for this device.

    I’ll continue to make do with mine. But this is an example of someone being only as faithful as his options allow.

    Jake LaCaze now knows that an e-ink writing tablet has a place in his daily life. But he thinks his next will be something other than a device from MobiScribe.

    Curating my own digital newspaper, with Syncthing and the MobiScribe Wave

    In so many ways, the internet sucks.

    Social media engagement algorithms have made it even harder to find quality content worthy of our attention1. These algorithms don’t push stories you care about. They instead push stories other people care about in the hopes that you’ll fit into the same bucket as other consumers. They provide access to an abundance of content, but the content is often, quite frankly, crap. (Feel free to substitute a stronger word if you like.)

    Unfortunately, the only answer I’ve found for these algorithms requires some work. We must take ownership of our own digital experience and curate the content we want to see. We can’t afford to rely on the machines to inform or entertain us.

    Lately, I’ve started using my MobiScribe Wave2 as my own digital newspaper. Though the Wave is firstly an e-ink writing tablet, I appreciate that I can read and annotate interesting articles directly on a device I often keep at my side.

    The rest of this post will give some insight into the tools and setup that help me curate my own digital newspaper. This post is intended as an overview, not as a comprehensive step-by-step guide, but I will do my best to include helpful links for anyone who wants to replicate my system.

    The tools

    Below is a list of the tools I use to help me pay attention to the written digital content that matters to me:

    • NewsBlur3 (RSS service)
    • Syncthing4 (Free, open source syncing service)
    • MobiScribe Wave (The actual e-ink device, powered by Android)
    • Raspberry Pi (This device works as a syncing hub and is optional to this workflow.)

    Now, let’s take a look at how each device fits in.

    NewsBlur

    NewsBlur, my RSS service of choice, is the most labor-intensive part of this process. Creating an account and signing up for the service are simple. But finding and adding feeds worth following takes time and effort.

    Anyone familiar with an RSS reader will expect NewsBlur to routinely update articles for any added RSS feeds. But NewsBlur has another feature that doesn’t get enough attention: A dedicated email address for turning email newsletters into RSS articles5.

    If you’re familiar with the wisdom of the statement Crap in, crap out, then you understand the importance of NewsBlur. If I put crap into NewsBlur, then I should expect to get crap out. Finding and curating content worth finding is the most difficult–but also most crucial–part of this process.

    Syncthing

    Syncthing is your personal free and open source alternative to Dropbox.

    I use Syncthing to sync PDF copies of interesting articles from my NewsBlur feeds into my MobiScribe Wave. Early on, I used Dropbox for this purpose, but I ran into some issues.

    For one, the free tier of Dropbox didn’t let me automatically save articles to my device, a crucial detail if I want to mark up and annotate the articles I read (which I sometimes do). This limitation meant I had to manually go into Dropbox and then save the articles to my device. This extra step led to managing two libraries: The files saved to my Wave, as well as those saved on Dropbox. No bueno.

    Without Syncthing, managing my digital articles was a nightmare, until the day I realized the MobiScribe Wave is an Android device, meaning it should work with Syncthing’s Android app.

    And so far, it has worked brilliantly.

    MobiScribe Wave

    At this point, there’s little to add about the MobiScribe Wave. For the most part, I use the device as usual with the caveat that I must make sure the device is connected to the internet and that Syncthing is working to sync my articles.

    I set up Sycthing on the Wave as I would any other device, allowing me to manage only one library instead of two, as I had to do when I was using Dropbox. For simplicity, I’m syncing the Books folder on my Wave. Inside that folder I have subfolders for content types or statuses, including:

    • Articles
    • Crosswords
    • Ebooks
    • Reading
    • Finished

    Raspberry Pi

    As I said earlier, the Raspberry Pi is optional in this workflow. I already had a Raspberry Pi and I’ve found it valuable considering how I use it in this process. But I don’t recommend you go out and buy a Raspberry Pi (or comparable device) if you don’t already have one.

    So how am I using it?

    In my current set up, my laptop syncs with the Raspberry Pi. And the Raspberry Pi syncs with the Wave. But the my laptop and the Wave do not sync to each other.

    Below is a simple illustration to show how my devices sync with each other.

    A simple flowchart of my digital newspaper workflow

    My laptop and Wave could sync directly with each other. But I rarely have both devices online at the same time, so there’s always a good chance they’ll be out of sync.

    I was already using a Raspberry Pi as a home file server. So I just took the minor extra step of setting it up as an intermediary between my laptop and the Wave. Now, I can save interesting articles into my synced folder on my laptop, whichh updates on my Pi. When I later use my Wave and connect it to the internet, the Pi then updates the articles on my Wave. And if I edit or delete a file on my Wave, my Wave then updates my Pi, which later updates my laptop. It’s a thing of beauty.

    Take back control of your online experience

    It would be nice if I didn’t feel a need to go through so much work to make sure my time spent online isn’t a complete waste. But recent history has shown that we can’t rely on social media engagement algorithms to determine our experience.

    Instead, we have to take charge. Yes, doing so takes some work. But setups like this can make it take just a little less.

    Jake LaCaze was recently told in jest that he reads too much. But this article has him thinking that maybe there’s some truth to the joke.

    E-ink writing tablet ecosystems: MobiScribe Wave vs Kindle Scribe

    This post is not a straight-up ‘MobiScribe Wave vs. Kindle Scribe’ kind of post because I can’t compare the devices themselves. As I said in my MobiScribe perspective post 1, I’ve only demoed the Kindle Scribe at my local Best Buy. But, as someone who’s used numerous Kindle e-ink readers over the years, I can speak to the advantages of the MobiScribe Wave over the Kindle ecosystem.

    And with that said, let’s get to it.

    The limitations of the Kindle ecosystem

    With the Kindle Scribe—like any other Kindle e-ink device—you are not buying a device that opens the door to other platforms; you are instead buying into a limited ecosystem.

    Out of the box (and hacking solutions aside), you can’t download other apps for reading content outside of purchases made directly from Kindle.

    Apple often gets flak for the walled garden aspects of its own ecosystem, especially on iPhone and iPad devices. But to Apple’s credit, at least they do let you download apps outside their ecosystem, though to be fair, those same apps may not be the easiest to use, as is the case with apps that can sync to Apple’s mobile devices only via iCloud. (Obsidian comes to mind2. To sync Obsidian with mobile devices, you have only two options: iCloud and Obsidian Sync. At a cost of $8 per month, Obsidian Sync isn’t a great alternative for everyone.) The point is that Apple’s ecosystem has its issues, but it’s nothing compared to Kindle’s.

    In terms of apps and functionality, if you go with the Kindle Scribe, you better be completely satisfied with the Kindle ecosystem because the Kindle e-ink devices are basically gateways only to Amazon content. By default—again assuming you haven’t hacked the device—all your content comes from the Kindle Store. You do have the option to transfer ebooks from your computer, which would most likely require stripping the DRM, unless you got the books already DRM-free. But most normies aren’t going to go that route.

    Note: Fortunately, you can still save money on ebooks via the Kindle if your library offers access to the Libby app3.

    The flexibility of the MobiScribe ecosystem—or lack thereof

    Android tablets, including the MobiScribe Wave, give you plenty options for downloading other apps for reading various written content.

    With the Wave, as is the case with other Android tablets, the Kindle Store is simply another option. The device comes with the option to easily download the Kindle app via the MobiStore. But you can also enable Google Play and download other apps, which may save you some money.

    As a personal example, I recently figured out how to read current issues of The Economist via the Houston Public Library 4 and the PressReader5 app available from Google Play, saving me over $200 a year. With the Kindle, I can read ebooks and publications only if I can purchase or subscribe to them via the Kindle store. Because The Economist recently cut off access via the Kindle store, I have no option to read the magazine on the Kindle, no matter how much I’m willing to pay.

    The Wave also lets me download RSS apps and read-it latter apps so that I can keep up with my digital sources, if I so choose. Kindle devices provide no such option, a limitation which keeps them from being the ultimate reading devices.

    Is the Kindle ecosystem all you need?

    Perhaps the Kindle Scribe is fine if you plan to use it only as it is often promoted: A device first for reading Kindle books and second for some basic writing capabilities. Even though the MobiScribe Wave is, for me, first and foremost an e-ink writing tablet, I still appreciate the reading options it gives me. Having the option to download and read from an app other than Kindle makes the MobiScribe Wave a more capable reading device.

    When I’m ready to upgrade my e-ink writing tablet, I’ll likely look again to MobiScribe (maybe the soon-to-be-released MobiScribe Wave Color Kaleido 36), or one of the many e-ink tablets offered by Boox7.

    Jake LaCaze is totally an e-ink stan.

    MobiScribe Wave B&W - More perspective than review

    The MobiScribe Wave isn’t the best e-ink device out there. But it might be all you need.


    Over the last few weeks, I’ve fallen in love with the MobiScribe Wave. Because the device is an interesting mix of value and compromises, you should do your research before you buy.

    This post is less technical than you’ll find on most other reviews. I hope to instead give practical perspective to inform your buying decision. The MobiScribe Wave is not a premium device in the same class as the Remarkable 2, Kindle Scribe, or Ratta Supernote. But depending on your usage, the Wave may be all you need.

    While using the Wave as my main writing and reading device for the last month or so, I’ve become well-acquainted with its limitations. But I still love the device despite its flaws.

    Why I bought the MobiScribe Wave

    I’d had my eye on an e-ink writing tablet for a while now. But at times I couldn’t help feeling I wanted one only because I wanted a new toy, and that buying such a device would be a waste of money.

    Comparable e-ink writing tablets from MobiScribe’s competitors are significantly more expensive than the Wave–some over twice as much, depending on what specs and accessories you get.

    Later in this post you’ll find a brief comparisons of the Wave and its competitors; hopefully then you’ll understand why I was reluctant to splurge on a device I wasn’t sure was truly for me. I was tempted to stick with old fashioned pen and paper. But the old ways weren’t working out great on my morning and evening train commutes.

    With physical notebooks, I struggle with keeping different types of writing separate in their own notebooks. But it’s often more convenient to carry only one notebook. With the MobiScribe Wave, I can now have the best of both scenarios, at a great price.

    With an e-ink notebook, I can switch between reading and writing in a snap, within the same device. And reading my writing partner’s stories on my Wave is way easier than reading them on my tiny phone screen (iPhone SE). Also, on my phone, it’s too easy to find something else to do with so many apps at my fingertips. So, for a while, I was printing my writing partner’s stories out. Making notes on an 8.5" x 11" piece of paper is inconvenient at the best of times on the train, but even more so on those days where it’s standing room only.

    Having everything I need on one device cuts down on the number of items I carry in my laptop bag. Each book, notebook, pen, pencil, eraser, etc., adds weight and bulk. Maybe I’d feel differently if I got to call my own shots and could work when and where I wanted. But I instead sold my soul to The Man, so the MobiScribe Wave is a great device for me.

    I resisted the urge to buy an e-ink writing tablet for a while. But when Cal Newport kept singing the praises of his Remarkable 2 on the Deep Questions Podcast1, I could no longer resist. And a certain YouTube video from Voja of My Deep Guide2 convinced me the Wave was worth taking a chance on.

    What you get

    Below is what you receive when you buy the MobiScribe Wave:

    • The MobiScribe Wave e-ink notebook.
    • MobiScribe’s standard Stylus.
    • Cover for the device.
    • USB-C cable for charging and file transfer (wall plug not included).

    The primary device

    The primary device feels solid.

    The back has indentions on the side which make it easy to hold.

    I wasn’t sure I’d like having a recessed screen, especially because I’d gotten used to a flush screen on my Kindle Oasis (before my wife decided she wanted to start reading again and basically stole my Oasis, thereby justifying my purchase of the Wave). But I’m happy to report the recessed screen hasn’t been an issue. In fact, I’ve forgotten it’s even an aspect of the device.

    64GB of storage is very generous at this price point. More expensive devices come with much less storage.

    The front light is one of those features that most e-reader fans likely take for granted. But, when you consider that no versions of the Remarkable 2 include a front light, you realize what a luxury it is.

    Stylus

    The stylus is fine.

    From what I’ve read online, the stylus doesn’t give as much feedback as the Remarkable 2’s stylus, which may be an issue for some users. The good news is that the Wave is compatiable with most styluses that use Wacom EMR technology, so you can switch out for a better stylus if you like.

    Having an eraser on the end of the stylus is nice. But I can’t help wanting to rub when I erase–like you’d expect to do with a pencil eraser–and I’m pretty sure that’s how I scratched my screen. The scratches aren’t bad and I don’t find them distracting. But it’s disappointing that I’m already seeing cosmetic wear and tear after only a month of ownership.

    I replaced the nib after three weeks of usage. I haven’t had the device long enough to know if this will be the average lifespan for my nibs. Also, your mileage may vary.

    After owning the Wave for a month, I bought the Staedtler Noris Jumbo stylus3, which is much better at a great price (~$35). The stock stylus had stopped working as expected. For some reason, it would only erase, no matter what tool was selected. My research prior to buying the Wave did not lead me to believe it’s common for the stock stylus to crap out so quickly. So I can’t say you should factor the cost of another stylus into the budget/risk factor. I appear to have just run into a bit of bad luck.

    Case

    The case is simple, light, and functional.

    The front cover folds around with no hitches, making the device is easy to hold with one hand. The pen loop ensures you never lose your stylus. Cutouts along the top and bottom edges give access to the charging port and buttons for power and the front light.

    But how well does it protect the Wave? I haven’t dropped it yet, so I can’t really say. But the device isn’t as fragile as an iPad, which uses a glasses screen, so I imagine the case works just fine.

    The MobiScribe Wave vs. similar devices

    The complete package of the MobiScribe Wave can be tough to gauge. For $230, you get a complete bundle including the MobiScribe Wave, case, stylus, and USB-C cable.

    Now, let’s glance at how the MobiScribe Wave compares to its peers in terms of price and value:

    • $450 for the cheapest bundle (device, stylus, cover) from Remarkable
    • $275 for a refurbished Remarkable (device only); $299 for new (device only)
    • Nearly $400 for a comparable Kindle Scribe bundle (with only 16GB of storage)
    • ~$550 for a similar bundle for the Supernote Ratta A5X (a comparable device to the Remarkable 2 and Kindle Scribe)
    • ~$420 for a similar bundle for the Supernote Ratta A6X (comparable in size to the MobiScribe Wave

    Please note: The prices listed here are normal MSRP and do not account for potential sales. Also, you may save money if you don’t buy a full bundle.

    The Wave comes with 64GB of storage. The Kindle Scribe bundles start at 16GB. The Remarkable 2 has only 8GB of storage, with no expansion options.

    The Wave includes a front light, which is not available on any of the Remarkable 2 devices at any price point.

    None of the Wave’s competitors claim to offer waterproof devices. (Is the Wave really waterproof? No idea, as I don’t plan on testing that feature any time soon.)

    The Wave lets you download other apps via the Google Play Store. This feature helps to make the Wave a more nearly complete reading device by making it easier to check in on your RSS feeds and saved articles. As far as I know, the Remarkable 2 doesn’t let you download any extra apps. And Kindle wants to limit you to their store and ecosystem. With the Wave, you can read ebooks via apps including Kindle, Kobo, Libby, and Hoopla to name a few. If you care about other apps and doing things beyond reading and writing, then a full-fledged e-ink tablet from Onyx’s Boox line may be more up your alley. But keep in mind the Boox devices are much more expensive than the MobiScribe Wave (and most of the other devices mentioned in this post).

    Initial setup

    After connecting to WiFi, I downloaded the tolino app for ebooks and the Adobe PDF app. You can download these apps from the MobiStore app–no account required.

    Then I transferred my ebooks via USB-C and I was ready to go. (NOTE: If you’re using a Mac, you’ll have to download the Android File Transfer app. Sometimes I have to connect the device multiple times before the app works. I don’t know if this issue is unique to the Wave, or if it’s typical with most Android devices and Macs.

    UPDATE: Since the original post, I have since transferred books via USB-C on Fedora Onyx, which was a much smoother experience, so Linux users may have better luck.)

    I’ve also enabled the Google Play Store on the device and have downloaded apps including Firefox and wallabag.

    How I’ve been using the MobiScribe Wave

    As a writing device

    Since I got the Wave, I’ve used it for every version of writing I can think of:

    • Journal entries.
    • Short stories.
    • Blog posts.
    • Doodles.
    • Meeting notes.

    I’ve yet to find a reason to go back to physical notebooks and pens.

    E-reader

    When it comes to reading, the Wave feels like a Kindle on steroids.

    As you would expect, I can read ebooks on it. Most of the ebooks I read tend to be EPUB files. But I do read PDFs on the device as well. Being able to directly markup both EPUB and PDF files with my stylus makes it feel as if I’m reading an old fashioned printed work, but with the benefits of technology.

    As I’ve already mentioned, downloading a couple extra apps on the Wave lets me keep up with my favorite blogs. With Firefox, I can access miniflux (my RSS service provider) and with wallabag, I can catch up on my read-it-later articles.

    Who the MobiScribe Wave is for

    The Wave might be a great option for you if you’re:

    • Cost conscious, whether generally or because you’re not sure if you’ll like this type of device and so don’t want to spend too much.
    • Someone who’s never used a premium alternative such as the Remarkable 2 or Kindle Scribe. (I haven’t used any Remarkable or Scribe tablets aside from demoing them in the store, but in general, it’s hard to take a step down if you’ve had something perceived as being in a higher product class.)
    • Someone who commutes or travels and you’re tired of carrying multiple books, notebooks, pens, etc.

    Who the MobiScribe Wave is NOT for

    You may want to pass on the Wave if you’re:

    • Someone who expects a premium experience or has already gotten used to a premium device.
    • Someone who doesn’t understand the value of e-ink and may be better served by an iPad or similar full-feature tablet.

    Pros

    Below are some features that make the MobiScribe Wave a great value purchase:

    • Cost - For $230, you get a writing tablet, stylus, cover, 64 GB storage, and more.
    • Great writing experience.
    • Access to apps like Kindle and Libby that extend your reading options.
    • Unlimited paper (and the flexibility of deleting, copying, inserting, and rearranging pages however you want or need).

    I’ve already covered why I think the Wave is a great value at $230.

    I usually prefer more feedback when writing. The Wave doesn’t give as much feedback as I get from certain fountain pens, but the writing experience is much better than writing on an iPad without a paperlike screen protector, which feels far too slick.

    Being able to download extra apps extends the usefulness of the device, but I don’t think you have to worry about it becoming as distracting as a smart phone or backlit full-color tablet.

    And knowing you can rearrange your writing later gives lets you focus on getting your words down now.

    Cons

    • Battery life.
    • Laggy at times.
    • Pen doesn’t attach magentically, so the cover is pretty much required. (On the plus side, the cover is light and thin.)
    • Glitchy (sometimes opens previous notebook or PDF rather than the file I most recently chose).

    The battery is by far the device’s greatest disappointment. With heavy usage, the battery lasts over a day. But I’m not sure it can make two days. We’ve come to expect e-ink devices to last weeks between charges, so the shorter battery life feels like a major step back. If you plan on taking the MobiScribe Wave on a multiple-day trip in the wilderness, you might want to take a power bank with you–maybe one that can be recharged by the sun.

    The Wave does lag sometimes. This usually results in me pushing a certain button twice and messing up what I was trying to do. In a perfect world, a device would never lag. But such a device will cost you much more than $230.

    Sometimes I try to load a notebook or PDF, but a previously opened file pops up rather than the one I selected. Yes, it’s annoying when it happens. But it can be fixed by closing out the app and then opening the desired file again. I’ve never seen this bug repeat twice in a row. Hopefully the developers can fix it in the future.

    A note (concern) about customer service

    I mentioned earlier that the stock stylus stopped working as expected about a month after purchase.

    Before I bought the replacement stylus, I emailed MobiScribe support to see if they had any troubleshooting tips for me. As of the time of this post, I have not received a response after a day and a half. Now that I know the stock stylus is the root of the problem, I’ve followed up to see how I can make a warranty claim. I’ll try to update this post with a more complete picture of the customer service experience when/if this issue is resolved.

    UPDATE: MobiScribe customer service got in touch with me. After a little back-and-forth via email and sharing a video of the problem, MobiScribe sent me a replacement stylus free of charge. Thank you to MobiScribe for the handling of this issue.

    Jake LaCaze is constantly in search for the simple ways in which technology can improve our lives.

    UPDATE: My feelings on the Wave have soured a bit.
