--------- Highlights ---------
The Moleskine Notes App is part of the Moleskine Smart Writing Set. The set has the following capabilities:
Digital Storage: Moleskine Pen+ is a smartpen that writes on paper but also mirrors into smart devices. The pressure recognition of pen tip is very sensitive. So your handwritten notes and sketches have just as much detail as your physical ones!
Transcribe & Search handwritten notes: Your handwritten notes can transcribe into digital text through MyScript’s engine. Once handwritten text is transcribed into digital text, you can export the data, tag content, or search by note pages. Your search results will display notes on the screen.
Easy Share: Your handwritten contents can be shared via the app and SNS, and can be sent email by a single pen-action.
Record & Playback: Playback the pen stroke data or the audio file that is synced with the strokes. A digital version of your stroke data and audio will be stored in the App and will be accessible anywhere you go. While you record your voice during writing, you can replay your written notes and recorded voice simultaneously according to the timeline.
Data reproduction: Your drawing can be exported in a scale-able image format, namely SVG or PNG or JPG, which allows you to reproduce them.
Internal Memory: Moleskine Pen+ can store up to 1,000 pages (5 Notebooks) by itself without being connected to smart devices. Once you connect Moleskine Pen+ to smart device, the app will automatically archive the notes by date, location and page.

Ratings and Reviews
I have the Ellipse+ Moleskine pen and the smart notebooks and planners, and they all work exactly the way they are intended. I love that when I write in my planner (though I’m not using it full time yet, since it’s for 2018) it shows up nearly instantly on my iCal calendar, same for my notebooks, when I have the app open, it shows up right away, or very quickly after connecting when I use the pen without first opening app and connecting. I’ve not yet figured out the auto save feature, (I have it set to auto save to Evernote and nothing seems to be there) I wish I could find a user guide for the app so I’m not just “playing around” to figure out the features, even though overall it is very simple to use and figure out. I also have a LiveScribe and I prefer this one to that.
Edit: on the IPad version there is a link at the bottom of the menu that allows me to back it up to Evernote, but I cannot see that on my phone app. Maybe the phone app needs an update to work better with the IPhone X screen settings? Would be nice to see the same options on both devices.
This app is an absolute disaster
Nevermind that this app is just a lazily forked and re-branded version of Neo Smartpen app, it’s an unmitigated disaster at doing the very thing smart pens are supposed to be useful for- backing up and digitizing notes.
I invested in 5 moleskine Ncode notebooks and this app doesn’t tell the difference between any of them. If I use two notebooks of the same type, I have to lock one, and then unlock the other. This process is HORRENDOUS. No shortcuts through Siri or a widget app or anything else to make it simpler.
To make it worse, backups to Google drive are spotty and totally non-functioning for me for the past several weeks.
Numerous other notes:
- The design of this app looks like it came straight out of iOS6. The UI is a disaster. The scroll wheel interface is garbage, time-wasting and frequently overscrolls
- Backup is garbage
- Notifications are non existent. The app isn’t smart enough to remind you if you haven’t backed up to cloud in a while and doesn’t let you know if your account is disconnected.
- Interaction with the pen is through a UIAlert!? What is happening here??? Why, why would you do that?
It’s the roughest and least user friendly product I’ve ever encountered tried to a major brand. Moleskine should be embarrassed to be associated with this application.
It’s Great When It Works
The truth is that it’s great when it works. I bought two at the same time, anticipating that my wife would use one. My pen was a disaster from the start, never worked. Product support is just awful; unresponsive, late by weeks in responding, canned answers that I could have gotten from a well honed FAQ if the they had one. I have a least 7 service request numbers that have gone unanswered but acknowledged that they got it. $200 down the drain but mostly the indifference by Moleskin is the most annoying. By the way, my wife’s pen works fine.....
