--------- Highlights ---------

The Moleskine Notes App is part of the Moleskine Smart Writing Set. The set has the following capabilities:

Digital Storage: Moleskine Pen+ is a smartpen that writes on paper but also mirrors into smart devices. The pressure recognition of pen tip is very sensitive. So your handwritten notes and sketches have just as much detail as your physical ones!

Transcribe & Search handwritten notes: Your handwritten notes can transcribe into digital text through MyScript’s engine. Once handwritten text is transcribed into digital text, you can export the data, tag content, or search by note pages. Your search results will display notes on the screen.

Easy Share: Your handwritten contents can be shared via the app and SNS, and can be sent email by a single pen-action.

Record & Playback: Playback the pen stroke data or the audio file that is synced with the strokes. A digital version of your stroke data and audio will be stored in the App and will be accessible anywhere you go. While you record your voice during writing, you can replay your written notes and recorded voice simultaneously according to the timeline. 

Data reproduction: Your drawing can be exported in a scale-able image format, namely SVG or PNG or JPG, which allows you to reproduce them.

Internal Memory: Moleskine Pen+ can store up to 1,000 pages (5 Notebooks) by itself without being connected to smart devices. Once you connect Moleskine Pen+ to smart device, the app will automatically archive the notes by date, location and page.

So far so good but .....

I was a bit concerned about reviews so have been pleasantly surprised. Easy set up and seems to sync well with my iPhone. I like the tab option so I can file notes and refer back to them. I have used a black n red book for years and I think this will replace it .
Sadly the customer service is absolutely shocking, the biro insert ran out after 30 pages and they claim “it is impossible for us to replace refillls “ !! You can buy them from third parties but not moleskin, shame !

Pleasantly surprised

The app is very simple to use. If you want to create a digital copy of whatever you’re writing so that you can access it anywhere, this is ideal. I meet a lot of people in connection with funeral planning for instance, and this will ensure that the notes I make can always be found. I don’t need to spend the time on an extra stage of typing them up, and I can still make manual notes which is more personal when you’re sitting with someone who has been bereaved.

I would have given it 5 stars if I could have worked out the extra stage of converting my writing to print. Although there’s an icon which does the conversion, I can’t see how to save, transmit or format the result. This may be possible, but it’s not obvious!

Awful - Buyer Beware

13th Sept update: have persisted with trying to use this pen regularly for a month now. Lots of problems, the pen constantly disconnects and "loses" the record of my option for scanning and inputting pages, so the only way if I want to digitise my notes is if I re-write over my original notes...such a mess. After using this pen for about a month now my conclusion is this is essentially a gimmick gadget, not of any real practical use.

Changing to 1 star...I just discovered I can not add a second notebook I purchased! When I write in the new notebook in the app my notes appear on top of the first notebook I used.

The support page is terrible, very basic, but I managed to find this regarding using more than one notebook ".... you cannot use more than one simultaneously"...if I had known this I would not have purchased this pen. The product is extremely basic, it seems to be a poorly supported gimmick product.

Doesn't event sync with iCloud and seems it is not possible to export entire notebooks to a single file, can only export one page at a time! :(
