Watch your notes appear instantly on your iPad or smartphone with the Livescribe 3 smartpen. You’ll need to pair it with the Livescribe app. Then you can watch your handwritten notes appear instantly on your smartphone or tablet. In addition, these notes can be organized, tagged, made searchable and converted to text. 

Smartpen Features:

  • Write on Livescribe dot paper and watch everything appear instantly on your devices. The words will sync via Bluetooth® Smart wireless technology.
  • Use the built-in microphones on a tablet or smartphone to create interactive ‘pencasts’ that synchronise recorded audio with written notes.
  • You can convert your handwriting to text. Use this feature to create tasks, reminders, contacts and calendar events.
  • Add photos and text memos to notes to add context and clearly 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. It then transfers the content to the Livescribe app later when open. Most importantly, this allows people to take notes with just a smartpen and notebook. As a result, you can do more with that information on your mobile device later.

Livescribe Functionality

“People shouldn’t have to choose between their pen and their digital devices. The Livescribe 3 smartpen sends everything they write on paper to their tablet or smartphone.
