Is the Livescribe 3 smartpen and Livescribe+ app compatible with Android devices?
The Livescribe 3 smartpen and Livescribe+ app is compatible with Android KitKat 4.4.2 (or later). This is because our research shows that Android KitKat v4.4.2 (or later) devices have the best support for Bluetooth Smart LE.
The reason we developed a Bluetooth Smart LE device is because it is the right and best connection protocol for use with a smartpen. The bandwidth requirements, ease of pairing and enormous battery benefits make it the right choice. It is the same technology being adopted by a variety of other connected devices including heart rate monitors, fitness bands (FitBit) and others.
