CTL Announces Large-Scale Chromebook Integration with Top Note-Taking App Squid

Our most popular Chromebook just got more powerful.

We’re excited to announce a partnership with Steadfast Innovation and their amazing note-taking app, Squid, that will integrate high-powered, innovative handwriting software into our NL7TW-360 Chromebooks.

Squid has taken off in the last year and is even the preferred note-taking app at Google HQ.

All new (and current) NL7TW-360 users need to do is simply download the app from the Google Play store and the premium version will automatically install on your device.   

Squid’s premium version unlocks a powerful array of features to take notes and save them in real time. Using our EMR pen, you can write as naturally as you would with a traditional pen and paper using Squid’s low-latency ink that erases and modifies with the swipe of a finger or the eraser end of the pen. Pen strokes are highly customizable with pressure sensitivity and variable sizing using the tool or options within the software. 

Once notes or documents are created, they can be easily exported via the Google Suite and reversely, PDFs can be easily imported into Squid for note-taking and annotation.

Squid Premium empowers the NL7TW-360 for natural handwriting in everyday classroom situations including math problems, grading papers, document signing, or presentations.

This new partnership continues our efforts to be leaders innovation and collaboration in EdTech. Read more about the collaboration here.

You can learn more about Squid in the Google Play Store.
