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!

Create pencasts and add photos and typed memos directly in Livescribe+ to add more depth and context to your written notes. Save your pencasts as video and play them back anywhere, or use iMovie or any other video editor to easily create great lectures and presentations.

Terrible app makes it a $100 dumb pen

The iOS app makes a great hardware product simply insufferable. Sure, it does okay if you take some simple notes and need to search through them. But anything beyond that, let’s see where do I get started?

1. Connectivity is sparse, it doesn’t work with corporate OneNote account and their GDrive integration feels like it’s written by a first grader. You’re not going to be able to export a PDF most of the time - forget about trying to get mixed text/graphics/voice notes out of their crippled app.

2. Bugs. Is this a joke? Do you actually use your app? It crashes with 80+ page notebooks. When auto-sending to Google drive gets stuck in an endless loop overwriting a single page. If you have closed the cap on your pen in the middle of the sync, say goodbye to ever updating your notebook again. And don’t even get me started on security policies this app needs to run

3. There are 3 categories - “Tag”, “Star”, “Flag”. Want more? You’d need to buy a physical notebook for each category.

TLDR; I wasted 20+ hours experimenting with import/export and this is hardly any better than taking physical notes. It’s literally easier to take photos of your notebook and then run them through OCR

Very Disappointed

I have had prior versions of the Smartpen that connect to my computer and that was a bit unwieldy (wired connection, etc.) but it WORKED. Thought I would “upgrade” here — I wish I had read all these reviews first because I have had all of the same experiences. It won’t connect, or has to be “re-connected” each time you use it, the sync (when it happens) is slow, I can only get playback through the pen and not any other outside speaker/headphones despite figuring out (finally) how to connect them. The instructions are terrible (but probably because whoever wrote them knows that nothing works anyhow). I’m going back to my ancient version 1 of this equipment…

Livescribe owes us all an apology and a refund.

Horrible!!! Do not buy!!

The app will not load the data from the pen. When the app tries to sync the data, the app crashes. So nothing loads. When you go back into the app, the app asks for you to connect to the pen. However, the pen is already connected via Bluetooth. The only way to get the app to recognize the pen after the app crashes is to remove the Bluetooth connection. When you restart the connection process again, it does nothing because the app crashes every time. I haven't had the own for a week; I will be sending the pen back.

Also, the computer process is no better.
