From the Manufacturer

Livescribe 3 Smartpen Pro Edition for Tablets and Smartphones

Simply write on paper and the Livescribe 3 smartpen captures all your notes. Pair it with your Android or iOS device and your notes instantly appear in the Livescribe+ mobile app. Your notes become more useful when they are converted to text, tagged, searchable, and shared with friends and colleagues. With a few quick taps of your finger, your notes can be used in your favorite apps to create contacts, appointments, and reminders. Record and play back audio that's synced to your handwriting. The Livescribe 3 smartpen Pro Edition gives you a smart deal on an elegant collection that includes a premium 200-page hardbound journal, a leather smartpen portfolio, an extra ink cartridge and a one-year subscription to Evernote premium.

How It Works

The Livescribe 3 smartpen is designed with the meticulous attention to detail that a premium writing instrument deserves. From the integrated stylus cap, down to the Swiss-made tungsten-carbide ballpoint ink cartridge, we've paid close attention to deliver an experience that is worthy of the title of your new favorite pen. But it is the amazing amount of technology packed inside the Livescribe 3 that really delivers the magic. Once you twist the ring to extend the ink cartridge, everything you write is captured by the infrared camera on the pen and stored on the smartpen’s built-in memory. Simply connect your smartpen to your iOS or Android device and watch as all your notes are synced to the Livescribe+ mobile app.

Livescribe+ is available on iOS8 or newer and Android KitKat (v4.4.2) or newer

Pencasts Help You Never Miss a Word

Using the microphones on your tablet or smartphone, create pencasts that record and synchronize audio to everything you write or sketch. Play back your pencasts to hear, see and relive notes as if you were back in your meeting or lecture so that you will never lose any important information.

Share your pencasts as PDF files, which can be easily played back on any of the devices you use every day, including Mac, Windows, Android or iOS.

Livescribe+ Mobile App

If you use Livescribe+ on more than one device, the built-in memory on your Livescribe 3 smartpen allows you to sync your notes seamlessly. Any Livescribe 3 can be paired with up to four different iOS or Android smartphones or tablets.

Available on iOS and Android, Livescribe+ is the companion to the Livescribe 3 smartpen that’s designed to quickly make your notes more useful. Livescribe+ makes it easy to integrate your notes with the rest of your mobile life:

  • Create contacts, appointments and more from your handwritten notes
  • Find what you need quickly with incredibly accurate handwriting search
  • Convert your handwritten notes to text and use them in any doc or app
  • Use easy sharing options to send notes to a variety of apps and services
  • Record audio that syncs to your handwriting

Bluetooth Smart — Quicker Pairing, Longer Battery Life

Livescribe 3 smartpen uses Bluetooth Smart technology to pair with compatible mobile devices to deliver more than 14 hours of continuous use between charges. Pairing is also much easier – just turn on the Livescribe 3 and accept the pairing request on your mobile device with a single tap. After that, your smartpen will pair automatically each time you launch the app.

The Livescribe 3 can pair and sync to up to four devices, switching seamlessly between iOS and Android. Synchronize your notes to your smartphone, tablet and other devices so you have them when and where you need them.

Livescribe dot paper uses standard paper printed with a unique pattern of tiny microdots that work with the infrared camera in the Livescribe 3 smartpen to allow it to capture the exact location of everything you write or draw.

This is a review of the Livescribe 3 Smartpen Pro Edition and Livescribe+ app. for iOS
I am a college student recording and taking notes on several hours of lectures per day. I am working with an iPhone 4s

The leather portfolio is nothing special but it is functional and looks nice enough.

I have been using the smart pen for about 3 weeks and have had some good results. First, I would like to point out that overall, the pen works as advertised. It is a little large but not awkward to write with. The Livescribet+ app also works well. Previous issues have been resolved.

So far, I have been able to take several pages of notes. These notes are seamlessly syncing to the Livescribe+ app. If the app is not running while I take notes the data is still stored on the pen, which has 2 GB of storage, and syncs the next time the app and pen are paired. The OCR work well also. I estimate that 85% - 95% of my handwriting is accurately converted into text with the swipe of a finger. This is true for either cursive (script) or block style writing. Now my penmanship is pretty poor, so I think OCR is pretty good. I find that the problem is usually with numbers and symbols, but that just may be my writing style. Notes can be shared easily via email, sms, Evernote, Drop box, Google Drive, etc, in either text form or as a PDF of the page or snippet.

I have very successfully written an entire page of notes, had it converted into text, made a few minor edits in the app, and emailed a completed document. I have also been able to group several pages of notes together and send them to Evernote from within the app. In fact, I wrote most of this review with my Livescribe 3 Smartpen!

I'm on my 3rd Livescribe pen. While a touch light for my personal preference, "3" is otherwise very good and a pleasure to write with. It's easily activated by twisting the ring on the shaft, which also serves to expose the ink cartridge tip, ready for note taking. It starts up fast and links via BT4.0 quickly and efficiently to my iPhone 5S. I have a second pairing with my iPad.

First I had an Echo, which served me very well for a few years but when the display burnt out and couldn't be repaired I moved on.

Second, I had a Sky. Great potential, but seemingly endless problems with syncing. Still have it and it still works (sort of) but when I saw 3, I thought "This is it!"

Third, my "3". On paper, this looks terrific. It also functioned very well in terms of syncing and software updates. BUT, I lost EVERYTHING that I'd recorded in one foul swoop and LiveScribe support simply acknowledged it as a bug but said there was nothing I could do about it. Unimpressed, but trying to be fair, I asked how I can archive my content to prevent such a disaster again. So far I haven't got a useful answer. Please note that I verge on extreme with my backup activities, so losing data is a rarity for me. Yet, my daily phone backups couldn't help me restore what I'd lost. I'll write a bit more about the failure at the end together with a possible solution which may work if you respond early and in the correct sequence.

The next issue goes more toward the management of content that's generated through LiveScribe products. My content from these 3 different pens appear to have no way to locally consolidate. Effectively, what I require is a virtual bookcase for my LiveScribe books/journals.

I had reasonable hopes and expectations for a $200 pen. I want to be able to use a good quality pen to handwrite and save my notes electronically and record audio. This pen does deliver on those basic requirements but with a poor user experience. Here's a list of the issues.

1. The pen makes an awful and distracting clicking sound when it meets paper.
2. You can use multiple iOS devices (I want to use an iPad and iPhone) however the audio recordings remain on only one device and do not sync across devices.
3. Poor Evernote functionality. It only exports the visual notes (not the audio) as PDFs. This means it is displayed as an attachment in Evernote which makes it cumbersome. Furthermore, there is no sync feature, you have to manually export your notes one page at a time.
4. The lined paper and the digital lined paper do not match up. For example, if you write a sentence in the notebook right above the line (where it should be), it shows up on the map misaligned with the digital lined paper showing the lines almost to the middle of the words (think strike thru fonts). Very odd.

The basic functionality that Livescribe offers is amazing (ability to record audio/handwriting) but this should be accompanied with good user experience. Because it lacks good sync functionally with cloud services (specifically with Evernote) and that annoying clicking sound when it meets paper (which seems like a huge thing to miss before sending this market), this pen seems like in its current state is overpriced and poorly developed. I want this functionality so badly for work and school but having to wrangle with things that seem like they wouldn't be an issue in todays tech climate is distracting and off-putting.

Update: Changed review from 3 to 1 stars.

Hi Prospect,

To export your notes with audio from Livescribe+, tap the "Pencast" option at the top of the full page view of the note to switch it from "Page" view. After exporting from "Pencast" view, the PDF that appears in Evernote will have audio attached.

For the issue where your ink strokes are not lining up in Livescribe+ the same way they appear in your physical notebook, please contact us at cs@livescribe.com. We would like to get more information from you as this is not currently a known issue and we could use some additional details.

Thank you.
