Brill beta on Android

For some, it’s beta on Android.
We know.

We’ve been working tirelessly to bring the magic of Brill to your favourite platform. Today, we’re excited to announce Brill BETA is now available on the Google Play Store! Experience instantly digitising your handwritten sticky notes in over 100+ languages. Easily share your captured notes as plain text or in a spreadsheet.

For the Beta release we’re launching Brill’s most popular (and biggest time saving) feature — instant sticky note digitisation — which is over 200x faster than typing. We’ve already saved people over 300 hours of lost time to trying, and we can’t wait to see how much time the Android community can save too.

Brill is on the App Store

Get your party poppers ready… We are now live! 🎉

Brill’s journey began with yet another whiteboard covered in notes and when it came to typing them up, nobody wanted to do it. What a boring and time-consuming task, right? “There must be a better way!” was the chant.

The normal human reaction when coming across a problem is to seek a solution. We started searching the web and app stores for something that allowed us to rapidly capture handwritten notes. We found apps that let you scan notes, and arrange them, but it did not digitise the text. We found even more apps that record your voice, and some even convert them to text, but then what? We wanted to be able to quickly export our text into our favourite tools too. We even explored computer vision that led to patchy results.

“We found nothing that made it fast, and fun, to capture notes”

That led us to rapidly creating coded ‘proof-of-concepts’ that combined voice recognition technology with a novel user interface. We began testing it with people and early feedback was positive. The next step was creating and launching a Beta testing programme to gather a wider range of feedback. This helped shape what you see on the App Store today:

Smarter & Faster

  • Rapidly capture your thoughts, whiteboard or sticky notes using the keyboard or voice.
  • Organize your notes, ideas and to-dos using tags and projects.

Secure & Private

  • Using Apple’s device security ensures your notes remain yours.
  • We do not store your voice and cannot access your notes.

Go Handsfree

  • Go handsfree using “Hey Siri, add a note in Brill” on your iPhone, AirPods or HomePod.

Send Notes Anywhere

  • Share as text or spreadsheet via email or AirDrop.
  • Export to Trello (more coming soon…)

But wait, there’s more…

The team are working away in the background to make Brill the very best experience it can be for you. iCloud and Apple Watch support are amongst just some of the new and exciting features coming very soon.

Our mission to save you time by making capturing notes or ideas easy and more natural, using voice, has only just begun. Stay tuned!
