Kool Tools: LiveScribe 3 smartpen


Livescribe's Livescribe 3 smartpen, which lets you take handwritten notes useful on a tablet or smartphone, is a handy accessory for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners.

To use it you simply twist a ring on the black and chrome device to begin writing; their words and diagrams appear in the companion Livescribe+ mobile app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Livescribe 3 smarten lets you:

° Write on Livescribe dot paper and watch everything appear instantly on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices with Bluetooth Smart wireless technology;

° Use the built-in microphones on a tablet or smartphone to create interactive "pencasts" that synchronize recorded audio with written notes;

° Convert handwriting to text to create tasks, reminders, contacts and calendar events;

° Add photos and text memos to notes to add context and communicate details;

° Share written notes, photographs and diagrams as PDF files over Mail, Messages, Evernote, Dropbox and other apps.

The Livescribe 3 smartpen captures everything written on Livescribe paper as soon as it starts up, and then transfers that content to Livescribe+ when the app opens. This allows people to take notes with just a smartpen and notebook, and then do more with that information on their mobile device later.

The Livescribe 3 smartpen’s wireless connection allows for easy pairing and instant transfer of notes with very low battery drain, enabling the Livescribe 3 smartpen to capture information for 14 hours between charges. The Livescribe 3 includes a capacitive stylus cap to control the Livescribe+ app, and Swiss-made, premium ballpoint cartridges to use with any Livescribe paper notebooks.

Livescribe 3 is compatible with iOS devices that are Bluetooth Smart Ready, including the iPhone 4S or later, third-generation or later iPad, iPad Mini, and the fifth-generation iPod touch or newer. The free Livescribe+ mobile app is available from the Apple App Store for devices with iOS 7.

The Livescribe 3 smartpen is available in two versions. The Livescribe 3 smartpen, available for US$149.95, includes a sleek black-and-chrome smartpen along with a 50-sheet Starter Notebook, as well as a micro USB charging cable and a black tungsten carbide medium-tip ink cartridge.

Priced at $199.95, the Livescribe 3 smartpen Pro Edition includes a leather smartpen portfolio with a 100-sheet hardbound journal, a one-year subscription to Evernote Premium, the charging cable and an additional ink cartridge. The smartpens are available for sale on Livescribe.com, Amazon, Paradise Pen, Apple.com and select Apple stores across the United States. The Livescribe 3 smartpen will also be available in Canada, Europe, Asia and other international markets. For more info go to http://www.livescribe.com/livescribe3 .
