What is the benefit of purchasing a smartpen?
Livescribe's smartpen combines all four modes of communication - reading, writing, speaking and listening - in the simple, low cost, and convenient format of pen and paper.
In the case of taking notes during a discussion or lecture:
The smartpen digitizes the handwriting. Your device (83002 - LIVESCRIBE+ - Compatible devices and system requirements) records the conversation using the Livescribe+ app and syncs the ink transferred from your smartpen with the recording made with the app. By later tapping the ink in Livescribe+, the device replays the conversation from the exact moment the note was written.
Notes and audio can also be exported to Evernote, OneNote, Mail, and other options.
The smartpen records the conversation and digitizes the handwriting, automatically synching the ink and audio. By later tapping the ink, the smartpen replays the conversation from the exact moment the note was written.
The smartpen uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to interpret smartpen Commands written on dot-map paper.
Notes and audio can also be uploaded to a PC where they can be replayed, saved, searched (due to the OCR technology), and sent.
