What would make the reMarkable 2 better?

  • Fix the Jagged lines issue. (reMarkable fixed the Jagged Lines issue in version 2.6)
  • Include the content, even your handwritten notes, in search results.
  • Faster sync.
  • More Text Conversion options.
  • Provide better formatting for both PDF and EPUB.
  • Better support. I have not needed to contact the reMarkable support team, but I have not heard great things regarding response times.
  • Provide more support for accessing your content without using Cloud Sync.
