Big fan of Livescribe 3 and Livescribe+!
I’ve been playing around with the latest version of Livescribe+ and I’m loving it. I’ve been using the Feed more and more -- I’m a huge fan of being able to write phone numbers, URLs, and addresses on my notebook with my Livescribe 3 pen, and then swiping to change them into text. Once my notes are in text, all I have to do is touch the phone number to add it to my Contacts or make the call, or touch the URL to launch the browser, or touch the address to launch maps. It’s truly amazing. I’ve also been recently adding photos to my Feed as well. I like how I can “flip” the photo by swiping, and then write on the back, so I can take notes about the picture – this is great for note-taking, and also makes searching a lot easier later. I’m also a huge fan of using Siri to add notes to my feed as well – very convenient. One more feature I’ve been using more and more is Pencasts - it’s so cool that I can touch any point in my notes on my iPad and iPhone, and it plays back the audio that was recorded at the time that I took the note.
Pen is great. The app not.
I decided to revise my review and up it to four stars. I'm still not a big fan of the software, however, I've been using the pen pretty regularly for to-do's and notes, and it's working great for me.
This product is good for me because I still prefer old-fashioned pen and paper. But now my notes are backed up and searchable on my phone, and I can delete the info I no longer need.
The app does have rudimentary sorting features, but they are so poorly conceived they aren't worth the trouble.
The app will upload to Evernote and other programs, however, the data is stored as complete pages -- rather than snippets like in the app -- so very little organization is possible.
The only issue with the pen itself is the USB cap keeps falling off. The plastic part that attaches the cap to the pen seems to bend after a while, and it's not fixable. I ordered a replacement cap but the same thing happened to it.
With all that said, I'm using the pen regularly, so the pros definitely out-weigh the cons.
When it works... It's great
Like has been so well documented here and across the web, there are syncing issues with the app. It is the app, because I can get different pages to sync across devices (iPad mini, iPhone 6 plus), but I can't get all the pages to sync in either device. Come on Livescribe, you can do better than this. I've been a faithful user for years. This is buggy enough though that if you can't get it fixed it is hardly worth the $$ for the device, ink and paper. When it works, it's great, with tons of great features. I just can't handle the unpredictability of it.
