LS3 and Livescribe+ goes Android!


Livescribe has launched the Android version of the Livescribe+ app, opening up the Livescribe 3 smartpens to millions of Android smartphone and tablet owners. Android users can start digitising, searching and sharing their handwritten notes by picking up a Livescribe 3 smartpen and downloading the Livescribe+ app free on the Google Play store. Initially launched for iOS, Livescribe+ for Android has been optimized for Android.


One Livescribe 3 smartpen can sync with up to four iOS and Android devices, so people can access the same notes whenever they need them, on their iPad as well as their Android smartphone, or any other combination of iOS and Android mobile devices.


Livescribe+ and the Livescribe 3 smartpen are compatible with devices running Android OS v4.4.2 (KitKat) or newer, with support for Bluetooth® Smart (aka Bluetooth 4.0 low energy). The Livescribe 3 smartpen uses Bluetooth Smart to easily connect to multiple devices and deliver up to 14 hours of continuous writing on one charge.


List of compatible devises


The Livescribe 3 smartpen is an elegant writing instrument that has already proven to be irreplaceable to many professionals and students during client-facing meetings, briefings and lectures. With the Livescribe+ app, every handwritten note is digitized so that it’s more useful than ever - people can save, search and share their notes via the apps and services they already use and love, including Evernote, Microsoft OneNote, Dropbox, Google Drive and more. This allows people to continue working how they want to work, and to be as productive as possible throughout the day. Customers will be able to share their notes with other apps that support PDF files, images or text. The Evernote and Microsoft OneNote Auto-Send feature, which automatically sends notes directly to those cloud services, is currently available in the iOS version of Livescribe+, and will be added to Android in the future.


Livescribe+ also allows customers to create pencasts – interactive documents that synchronize recorded audio with digital handwriting. Pencasts can be played back from the mobile device at any time, allowing customers to review their meetings and lectures. They can also be shared as PDFs that can be played back from other mobile devices as well as laptops or desktop computers.


Unique to Android, Livescribe has also launched a second app called Livescribe Link, an Android Service app that manages the connection between smartpen and Livescribe+.
