    Hi, sorry if insist but would be nice have an answer, I think a lot of users should take advantage from it, also on you Twitter message someone made the same question.

    Anyway I want also precise that latency isn’t the only issue using third party app, generally we have also problem with palm rejection.

    On app that have infinite canvas, (Squid, One note, Concepts) and honestly also on other apps (if we use zoom function), when we touch the screen with our hand while we write with the pen, than the page position can change. This happen often and make these app very difficult to use. Using a device whitout rest the hand on the screen isn’t useful. 

    For this if you will try to implement a function like the “global writing” of the Notea will be useful resolve also this problem. A possible solution is adding a digital button like the “application ball” that is automatically activated when we enable the “global writing”, honestly these would resolve all the problems and make all third app usable.

    I know you are working hard for make your “native app” ever more functional, and we like this and you have probably the most useful features that eink device can offer, but there are a lot of advanced handwriting application on Google Play, like Concepts (with infinite layers and canvas) and other that will come on the future that is sad not be able to use it.

    I hope you will let us know something, thank you and good work!

    Thanks for your answer but I think you didn't understand my suggestion.

    I'm talking about the handwriting on "google play" apps that are done for this purpose, such as OneNote. If we try to use the pen in these applications, there is a very strong latency and the palm rejection does not respond well. This problem is partially solvable, making these applications actually usable.

    If you take a look at the link I posted there is a demonstration of how this is possible, and everything will be clearer. On the video someone handwritten with a pencil on an eink tablet using a third party app, and the latency is very very reduced. So this is possible. Take a look.

    Dear customer, 

    Thank you for your suggestion. E-Ink screen would expect a little lag on hand writing notes on any applications. However, we do have speed mode settings on the device. So you could set the device with low performance on image but better refresh rate on the screen. In facts, our tech team is working on new technology in order to make the device more user friendly. Your suggestion has been forwarded to related department and will do our best in the new updates and models. Thank you again for your feedback.

    I would like to double down in here, the third party applications run flawlessly but the input lag for the pen makes them not useful at all

    I agree universal pen input would be grand.

    Hello, I also join this requst. For me it would be the most important feature. I do 2d animation and Tab Ultra or Tab X would be best for it but the lag in 3rd party animation apps makes them unusable.

    I would like to ask if there is any progress in developing this feature as the last answer was two years ago and still no solution.

    Thank you.

    Hi, I'm jumping right in on this. It's frustrating to have such a high-quality device with which you can essentially only make local notes. The support of handwriting and drawing apps available in the Google Store would be a great help in creating accessible notes. With the options that the Boox provides, it's impossible to establish a reasonable workflow. The current possibilities are extreme compromises that offer no added value in the use of this e-ink notetaking device. Notes should be able to be created on one device and, if necessary, processed on other Android devices with exactly the same app.
