Your Brookebot file will have an abundance of built-in links to quickly access specific pages.

I have only my iPad Pro and my Windows 10 desktop. Therefore, I am unable to test & verify any program on a Mac computer. These things are supposed to work, but you’ll have to do your own research to confirm. Hence, the “unverified” warning labels below.

testing

If the app you plan on using is not on the list above, please contact me before purchasing a planner or noteband. I will need to test the app in question and ensure that you’ll be able to use the full range of features in your file.

Keep in mind that I have access only to my Windows 10 PC and my iPad Pro. If the app in question is on a Mac, I'll be unable to test it.
Please provide the app's full name exactly as it is listed in the app store. If you can, please also provide the name of the person or company who makes and provides updates for the app.

how to

Import File

Pay attention to the browser in which your file is opened (and simultaneously downloaded). Your browser will determine how you import your file into your preferred storage and/or note-taking app. If you see the file on your screen, that means the download was successful.

ipad chrome browser app icon

If your download link opens in Chrome, do this:

ipad import file chrome browser

The “OPEN IN…“ disappears fast. Scroll the pages to have it reappear and tap it before it disappears again. Choose app from your list.

ipad safari browser app icon

If your download link opens in Safari, do this:

ipad import file safari browser
Tap the “Action” icon to see list of your apps in the dropdown menu. Choose the app in which you’d like to import your file.

free sample

Catalog

For newbies, the free sample catalogs are a great way to get hands-on experience & practice importing a digital document into your preferred note-taking app. See how Brookebot files actually look on your device — every page sample is included at actual size. Make sure the light and sophisticated designs will suit your needs. Tap on catalog links, zoom in & out, and write on the samples just like you would the real thing.

The Dated Planner Sample Catalog is essentially a look book with no dated links — just a sneak peek of each storage section, bookmark divider, digi paper, monthly calendar, and weekly & daily layout. Import the file, tap on catalog links, zoom in & out, and write on the samples just like you would in a full planner.

The Noteband Sample Catalog is essentially a look book — just a sneak peek of each section type, storage section, bookmark divider, tab page & digi paper. Import the file, tap on catalog links, zoom in & out, and write on the samples just like you would in a full noteband.

Extend Use

*undated daily page available in Daily and Weekly + Daily (located behind last dated daily page)

*undated weekly page available in Weekly and Weekly + Daily (located behind last dated weekly page)

If you are concerned about having a partially outdated planner, you may want to turn that late purchase into an early purchase & get a planner for the next term instead. Either way — late or early, the use of your planner can be extended beyond the 12 months of dated pages. Duplicate the extra undated daily*, undated weekly*, and undated monthly pages as many times as needed. Date the duplicated pages yourself & swipe through consecutive self-dated pages (instead of tapping) as self-dated pages do not have functional dated links. For quicker access, it is to wise couple a self-dated page with a page that is part of the built-in navigation framework — like a bookmark divider.

purchase

policy

Once a price is set, it will remain unchanged for the life of the product — from the day it is added to the shop until the day it is removed.

Each consecutive 6-month term, I must evaluate all factors that determine pricing. When a new set of planners is released, the price is set according to those factors. So, you may see a little fluctuation in pricing from term to term, but new products and prices will never affect a price that has already been set.

The same goes for notebands. When a new iteration is released, it may have an entirely new naming convention and pricing structure. This is the evolution of the product design.

Type Term Price Pages Links
Daily Jan 2021 – Dec 2021 $32 454 20,020
Weekly Jan 2021 – Dec 2021 $42 129 8,456
Weekly + Daily Jan 2021 – Dec 2021 $52 509 26,456
Daily Jul 2020 – Jun 2021 $32 454 13,283
Weekly Jul 2020 – Jun 2021 $42 129 8,442
Weekly + Daily Jul 2020 – Jun 2021 $52 509 19,216

Note: If you are confused by the math — remember that every Brookebot digital planner has a year at a glance page, 12 monthly calendars, 4 storage sections, 5 bookmark dividers, and 46 types of digi paper.

Looking for discounts and/or coupons? Relax! There are none. Here at Brookebot Digital Planners and Stickers, I do things differently. I keep my goods at a consistent & fair price for everyone — year-round. Rest assured that I will never jack up prices just to offer sales and I will not offer coupons just to get people excited.

Because all products are digital, the terms & conditions you will be asked to accept at checkout are as follows:

All sales final.
No refunds. No exchanges. No exceptions.

✔ I am sure the details of all items in my cart are correct; I am not accidentally purchasing the wrong item.

✔ I plan on using an app on the list of compatible apps located in the “before purchase” support library OR I have contacted Brooke to make sure my app is compatible. I understand that Notability does not support full link function in Brookebot files.

✔ I understand that Brooke has zero control over app functionality and/or app bugs that may pop up over time, but she will certainly help report bugs to developers and push for a timely fix.
