Record and Share Handwritten Notes With Livescribe Connect: Online Collaboration «
I have always taken a fancy for digital pens but never owned one. Might get one now:
As much as I like apps like Evernote, I still take a lot of hand-written notes, which is why I was interested in the new interactive “pencasts” available for the Livescribe Echo Smartpen, a digital pen that can record notes written on paper and audio.
With the rollout of Livescribe Connect, the company has now added sharing features to the gadget that should be useful for collaboration. The system can turn the notes recorded by the pen into interactive “pencasts” that can be shared with anyone who has Adobe Reader. Files containing both handwritten notes and recorded audio can be sent to a number of applications and online services, including email, Google Docs, Facebook, Evernote, and the MyLivescribe service that offers 500MB of cloud storage to any Livescribe owner. Pencast files can also be sent to mobile devices, including the iPad and iPhone.
