The Livescribe 3 Smartpen uses Bluetooth to send everything you write to your smartphone or tablet. Livescribe Dot Paper, which can be bought or printed for free with a laser printer, enables the smartpen to recognise what you’ve written. Captured notes are managed through the Livescribe+ app, which offers the ability to convert handwriting to text, organise notes with tags and send notes to other applications.
With a built-in microphone,the Livescribe Echo Smartpen can digitise notes written on paper and simultaneously record audio synchronised with the handwriting, creating a ‘pencast’. Notes and audio can be transferred to a computer via USB for storage, organisation and sharing.
