Note: Livescribe+ is designed to be used with the Aegir and Livescribe 3 smartpens from Livescribe.
Livescribe+ pairs with your Livescribe 3 or Aegir smartpen to instantly sync everything you write on paper directly onto your iPhone or iPad. Your notes become more useful, more quickly when they’re organized, tagged, searchable, and converted to text.
Notes, sketches, diagrams and drawings created with your Livescribe 3 or Aegir smartpen show up instantly in Livescribe+.
Access your notes in 3 different views to get more out of them: (1) Page View shows your notebooks and pages exactly as they were written. (2) Feed View organizes your notes into smaller, actionable snippets sorted in a timeline. (3) Pencast View allows you to play back audio recordings synced to your notes so you can hear what was said exactly when you were writing.
Convert your handwritten notes into text to transform them into tasks, reminders, calendar events, new contacts and more. Import shared pages or snippets into Adobe Illustrator or any other vector drawing app, and work directly with your own hand-drawn artwork. Paper-to-vector path is an industry first!

Ratings and Reviews
App crashing and freezing
Moving away from having the recording device built into the smart pen was the end of the viability of this product as a business tool. The app is unreliable and inflexible. It crashes during playback at least twice during an hour-long recording. It freezes every time I try to access my pencasts through the pencast menu item, so I have to go through my entire notebook to find the one I want. There’s no way to edit a pencast audio recording directly in the app, either. There’s also no option to skip ahead or back 10-15 seconds during playback in the app.
I wish I hadn’t used my Echo to death, or I wish I was able to find a working one from a real seller. I replaced it with a Livescribe 3, and use it as one of my accommodations at work. But it’s just too unreliable. I’m starting to shop around for a product to replace it.
Update: So, I just read more of the reviews, and the app has been TERRIBLE for ALMOST A DECADE!!!!!! Hey, Livescribe! Stop putting out new products until you fix the existing ones!!!!!!!
The connecting with the pen
The app is perfect and everything except for one thing if you haven’t connected the pen to your phone in more than four hours your phone deletes the pen and you can’t repair the pen. I have had to delete and reinstall this app seven times in the past month to repair my pen.
They recently had their reviews reset so I don't know exactly what my old one said but my biggest complaint before was the app crashing and not staying connected to the pen. Now.. Sometime within the last few months it deleted EVERYTHING from my app. I'm furious.
