Free Premium Subscription of Squid for Qualified EDU Customers with CTL Chromebook Tab Tx1

Our newest CTL product just got better.

We’re excited to announce a partnership with Steadfast Innovation and their amazing note-taking app, Squid, that integrates high-powered, innovative handwriting software into our CTL Chromebook Tablet Tx1.

After a successful promotion launch with the natural note-taking app and our NL7TW September of 2018, we have decided to extend a free one-year subscription of Squid Premium for no additional cost on our Chromebook Tablet to qualifying education customers. If you haven't heard, now is the best time to purchase a CTL tablet at the new low cost of $279.

As mentioned in our previous launch, Squid has taken off in the last couple of years and is even the preferred note-taking app at Google HQ.

All new (and current) Tx1 users with a qualified education domain need to do is simply download the app from the Google Play store onto your CTL tablet and fill out this form. Once the form is completed, you will receive an email that will provide you with the information you need in order to gain access to your premium subscription of Squid. The offer will expire on June 30, 2020, so get the most of Squid premium on your Tx1 today!

Squid’s premium version unlocks a powerful array of features to take notes and save them in real-time. Using our Wacom EMR stylus, 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 Tx1 for natural handwriting in everyday classroom situations including math problems, grading papers, document signing, or presentations.

This evolving partnership continues our efforts to be leaders of innovation and collaboration in EdTech. You can learn more about Squid in the Google Play Store.
