Great concept but too glitchy
I have owned a couple different versions of livescribe pens and the concept is great, especially for students in quick paced classes where it is difficult to get all the info, or students who have some learning needs and would like the opportunity to slow down and review material later. That being said, this app is far too glitchy for how much they are charging for the original product, which demands use of this app. While I was using yesterday it quit half way through every pen cast which means I lost all the recording I had been doing up to that point. The other pens have a way of syncing words and sounds immediately, I don't know why this app doesn't do the same because I am tired of this app glitching and thusly loosing all of my materials. Fix this problem because without this app your product is worthless. I expected better!
Wait for a Better Product
This app is terrible. I spend more time troubleshooting than writing. The problems are usually solvable, but too much of a headache to make it worth it. Who has time to consult tech support, delete/reload the app and stick pins in the pen to reset it every week? One day, this technology will probably be great, but I suggest waiting until they've finished testing it and actually have a properly functioning product. (The pen's good, but if the pen works and the app doesn't, it's useless). Tech support is nice, but not at all efficient or knowledgable. They also take a long time to comprehend the problem and I've had to repeat silly steps like resetting things far too many times. Save yourself the headache.
A real shame
I have been using Livescribe pens since the very first model, and have owned every model since. The Livescribe 3 is fairly well designed, but it's integration with the app is terrible. It was imperfect at first, but has now become completely unreliable. The sync works only intermittently. I just finished a 200 page notebook, and fewer than 25 pages have synced. And even those required me to repeatedly close out the app and cycle the pen on and off to get each page (sometimes less than a page) to sync. Once I can get the Apple pencil for the iPad Pro, I am done with my 5 year run with livescribe.
