Quick update, after eight months I still feel the same way. Actually, increasingly, the quality of my writing (specifically effortlessness and flow) using longhand and the My Script Neb0 app.
I’ve also supplement for on the go quick capture, I use Just Press Record app. I was pleasantly surprised that Bear writer app implemented the Apple Pencil. I can create little mini sketches, notes and or hand drawn Mind Maps into a Note in Bear writer. I find myself reviewing those mind maps and writing from them, all while we’re on the same screen. Great stuff.
