We’ve long been champions of LiveScribe smartpens and their impressive voice-and-text syncing abilities, and now they’ve just got even better. A new software suite now lets you dump your doodles straight to t’internet, while the price of the dictaphone pen has just been dropped too.
The new software, LiveScribe Connect, lets you dump your notes as a pencast or PDF to several popular online storage services, including Evernote, Facebook and Google Docs, or even send them via email or to iPads and iPhones, which can then open them with LiveScribe’s Pencast Player app. All you have to do is write down the name of the service and the pen will know to sling everything online the next time it’s synced with a computer.
Alongside this clever service, LiveScribe has also introduced a 2GB Echo Smartpen that drops to a penny below the magic £100 mark, and a 4GB model for £149.99. The LiveScribe Connect service itself, comes in two tiers – Connect Basic for Pulse and 2GB Echo pens, and Connect Premium for more expensive models and those who pay $14.99 (£9) to upgrade – which allows for penchants to be sent by email and to Google Docs.
