Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Quill is an easy-to-use application on IOS that enables students to shorten the time needed for homework and comprehension by summarizing their readings into coherent bullet points and key facts.

  • Reality:

    The app does summarize the information/text that is input through images as well as converting them to bullet points. Saving time is dependent on the use of the app as well as the user.

Something To Think About

The gathering of information is still a work in progress, as consistency will continue to improve with appropriate attention given to feedback and results.

  • Claim:

    Quill will also come with a web client capable of handling PDF uploads of hundreds of pages.

  • Reality:

    The web client app is a feature that will cost additional payment, but everything adds up to allow the capability of web function as well as uploading pdf pages.

  • Claim:

    "With Quill Pro...compiling pages of notes from all other users who are using the same book."

  • Reality:

    The building of the database is a creative function which could potentially be very beneficial for future use. It is important to consider that the database is only as big as the user base, and how often it is used.

  • Claim:

    Beta version of the Quill App is available for download.

  • Reality:

    This version of the app is functioning and reads text and also converts to bullet points.

Something To Think About

With the use of the beta version, the translation did have some very minor errors. With the beta, this is to be expected, and with the proper attention can easily be corrected.

  • Claim:

    "...place weights on which sentences we deem most important and which sentences we deem expendable."

  • Reality:

    Although the idea and ingenuity that created Quill has high potential and current function. The reality is that the information that is bullet pointed and summarized is not always completely accurate in regards to being the most relevant.

Bottom Line

Quill is a relevant idea that is backed by relevant work and information. The database is an element of Quill that has high potential, especially in the future implementation of the data collected. Keep in mind that the conversion of photographed text into bullet point summarized content is still a work in progress and has not yet been perfected.
