Moleskine presents a new set of tools to write, draw and work with. A specially designed notebook, smartpen (Pen+) and App that work together to instantly digitize notes and sketches made on paper. Easily create digital text and images and share them right away with your smartphone or tablet.

The Moleskine Notes App is the perfect place to keep, find, edit and share your digitized notes. When you use the Pen+ to write or draw on the Paper Tablet your strokes are simultaneously captured and transferred to the App.

In the App, use tags keep your ideas organized. Edit your notes using colors to highlight key ideas or correct a mistake. Sync you content or ideas to your Google Drive and Evernote clouds to ensure your thoughts and documents are always connected. You can also pair your handwritten notes with real-time audio recording and replay your synced notes and voice recordings straight from the App.

--------- 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.

*Main updates*

1. Search: Now you can search your handwritten notes based on transcribed text & tags! Don't forget to set your Transcribe Language to enable this magic!
2. More Share formats: Export your note in Microsoft PowerPoint, Word and Onenote.

Not The Quality I Expect From Moleskine

This app is incredibly disappointing given the quality I expect and value from Moleskine. The company has proven itself to be a solid developer via well-reviewed and designed apps such as Flow, Actions, and Timepage. However, this app is missing all of the design sensibilities and quality of those apps. The UI is outdated, the app is buggy and transcription (particularly calendar events) is incredibly disappointing, and the frequency of the updates to the software are slow. I would encourage Moleskine to pay attention to those devoted fans that plopped down the money to buy this system and take care of them. These folks, including myself, are many of your “Superfans” that support you regardless. You want these customers to sing your praises, so please pay attention and make the investment to bring this app and system up to par with your standards.

Works great!

I have the Ellipse+ Moleskine pen and the smart notebooks and planners, and they all work exactly the way they are intended. I love that when I write in my planner (though I’m not using it full time yet, since it’s for 2018) it shows up nearly instantly on my iCal calendar, same for my notebooks, when I have the app open, it shows up right away, or very quickly after connecting when I use the pen without first opening app and connecting. I’ve not yet figured out the auto save feature, (I have it set to auto save to Evernote and nothing seems to be there) I wish I could find a user guide for the app so I’m not just “playing around” to figure out the features, even though overall it is very simple to use and figure out. I also have a LiveScribe and I prefer this one to that.

Edit: on the IPad version there is a link at the bottom of the menu that allows me to back it up to Evernote, but I cannot see that on my phone app. Maybe the phone app needs an update to work better with the IPhone X screen settings? Would be nice to see the same options on both devices.

Newer iPhones and iPads

The app and concept are innovative. I love Moleskine journals and products. I have been a fan for years. I was so excited when I first got my pen/ journal a week ago. Registering the pen on my own was impossible. I called the Moleskine company and spoke with a super helpful young man. He was able to help my new system work. He knew exactly what I needed to do and was patient. The app needs updated to work more seemingly. Please keep up. Maybe it’s an Apple security issue as the representative had told me, at least it was fixable considering the cost of the item!
