UPDATE: So it looks like Livescribe acted fast on the firmware issue. The latest firmware was posted as a manual install option on the forum site a little while ago. It installed properly and is working flawlessly so far! First impression, FANTASTIC! The pen does exactly what it is supposed to do. It syncs the audio to your writing so that when you go back and tap on a word you will hear the audio that transpired at that moment in time. I have yet to test out the audio in a lecture hall setting but general conversations are picked effortlessly. Sound quality is even better when the 3D headset, which was purchased separately, is plugged into the pen. The feel of the pen itself is also terrific.Read more ›
The new pen cap is little and fits tight - I suspect it will be lost quickly. It is different than the Pulse caps - smaller, and fits on differently. I don't notice much difference at all in using the Echo vs the Pulse, but I do find it more comfortable and less dorky-looking. I never considered 4GB to be too little storage, but 8GB certainly allows me to record everything at the highest quality without concern. Interestingly, this pen didn't come with the recording headphones - which are nice, but way too dorky to actually use. If you are looking to buy a first Smartpen, you really can't go wrong with either the Pulse or the Echo. If you are a student or an attorney or anyone who needs to recall detailed discussion points, you won't be sorry. The variety of notebooks now is fantastic.
Note: EVERY high school and college student with learning disorders involving processing speeds, slow writing, Asperger's Syndrome, or attentional issues should have and use this product. I suspect this will replace "note takers" eventually, as this is FAR less expensive and more effective (see 2008-09 research study from Rochester Institute of Technology).
I have been a loyal LiveScribe customer since the first one came out. I have bought several notebooks and I thoroughly enjoyed both the Pulse and the Echo despite each of their problems. I picked up the LiveScribe Sky pen as soon as I could afford it, days after it came out. So I overnight the order from Amazon. Once I get home the instructions tell me that is not compatible with my desktop software that I've been using for myself, my business, and my clients for several years. No, this pen will only sync with Evernote!
Absolutely utterly baffled I contact support and they tell me that the only option is to sync with Evernote. They tell me that they are thinking about making it available for the LiveScribe desktop software but they could not give any ETA at all. I end the call and get a ticket reference number in email.
So now I tried to sync my pen and read it in Evernote. But, the sync with Evernote does not work. Every time I write on a page it creates a duplicate notebook in Evernote that is empty. You would think that while I talked with support the first time they would tell me about the problems with Evernote. But they do not. I call in again and this time the LiveScribe support rep says the "Evernote servers are down." I know this is not true as I just logged into Evernote a few moments before I called them. He tells me that syncing with Evernote is not an option for now. I hang up the phone and moments later get an email saying my ticket has been updated.Read more ›
