How Smartpens Work

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. The infrared camera in the tip of the pen captures your handwriting, storing it on the built-­in memory. When it's paired to your tablet or smartphone, all your notes are synced to the Livescribe+ mobile app.

Livescribe+ Mobile App

Designed to make your notes more useful, more quickly, Livescribe+ is the companion to the Livescribe 3 smartpen. Livescribe+ makes it easy to integrate your notes with the rest of your mobile life, with just a few taps of your finger: tag, search, organize, and share notes. Convert handwriting to text or create reminders, appointments, and contacts from your notes. You can even record and play back audio that is synced to your handwriting.

Bluetooth Smart — Quicker Pairing, Longer Battery Life

Livescribe 3 smartpen uses Bluetooth Smart technology to pair with compatible mobile devices to support over 14 hours of continuous use between charges. Pairing is also made 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.

Smartpen, Smart Paper

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. Controls and tags that are printed on Livescribe notebooks help the smartpen communicate with the Livescribe+ mobile app. You can choose from a variety of paper types, bindings, and sizes at competitive prices: blank, lined, or grid paper in spiral-­bound notebooks, hard bound journals, notepads, and even sticky notes.

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.
