Differences between iOS and Android

The Android app is a poor relative of the iOS app, crucially missing an automatic send feature, which allows users to effectively sync their Livescribe notes with a notebook in Evernote. You can send notes in the form of images, PDFs or Pencasts to Evernote from the Livescribe Android app, but you have to do it manually.

It’s also worth noting that notes are synced between different devices running the Livescribe+ app, but not Pencasts, which are tied to the device they were recorded on unless shared via other means.

Exploding pens

This is the second version of the Smartpen 3 I have tested. Na farko, the Moleskin edition, died after overheating. I charged it using a Qualcomm Quick Charge compatible USB charger (the pen does not come with its own power adapter), which was fine.

I put it in my bag and went to a meeting, but when I pulled it out to use it 30 minutes later it was unresponsive and too hot to handle. Just over 30 minutes later it had cooled off, but was completely dead.

Abun lura

  • Controls for pairing the pen, rikodi, pausing and stopping Pencasts, as well as starring, flagging or labelling notes are drawn as icons on the notepad pages – tap them with the pen to use them
  • The non-pen end is a capacitive stylus, hiding the microUSB port, but it doesn’t stay in the end very securely
  • Sketches with the pen work just as well as written notesartistic talent required

Farashin

The Livescribe Smartpen 3 comes in various different models, including a new revised Black edition with a better weight distribution and slightly slimmer build. The Livescribe Smartpen 3 Black Edition costs £120 and comes with a small refill-style 50-sheet notepad and one ballpoint refill.

Livescribe-compatible notepads start at around £3 each and refills for the pen, £1 each.

Hukunci

The Livescribe Smartpen 3 ba m. Samun a yi smartphone tare da kai don yin rikodin Pencasts ba kamar yadda mai kyau a matsayin rikodin a kan na'urar da kanta, musamman idan kana cikin wani kara. The Android app isn’t ready for primetime yet and the fact that the first version I was sent overheated and died is worrying.

But for speeding up the digitising of notes I can’t fault it. The pen perfectly replicates my scrawls, and when exported to Evernote it means I have a duplicate of my notes wherever I am. The Pencasts also speed up transcription no end. The pen is a decent writing instrument, particularly the Black Edition which feels more like a large pen with good weight distribution.

It will always have niche appeal but for anyone who makes notes, particularly while recording audio, it is an excellent tool.

Ribobi: Digital notes from paper, feels like a pen, writes like a pen, giciye-dandamali, syncs audio to written notes, works without being attached to a phone, many sources of compatible paper, rubutun hannu fitarwa

Fursunoni: Android app not very developed, tsada, requires special paper, first pen failed
