Sitting on exciting news like this is tough so it’s with much relief that I can announce that Livescribe has released the MUCH anticipated applications for the Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

The release of the free Pencast player enables you to access a digital copy of your synchronized notes and audio as pencasts from anywhere. Now notes and audio from critical meetings or lectures are portable and playable when you need them.

This is a major step forward for Livescribe’s mobile computing platform – we first got wind of this earlier this year when Jim Marggraff visited Australia. Since that visit we’ve had many hundreds of customers asking us about when, what, and how.

Instant Access to Synchronised Notes and Audio Any time, Anywhere with Livescribe

“Pencast Player lets consumers access their written and spoken information on the go with their favourite Apple products.”

Byron Connell, Livescribe chief marketing officer

Pricing and Availability

Pencast Player is available immediately, free-of-charge via the iTunes App store. The application works with all iPad devices with iOS 3.2 or higher and all iPhone and iTouch devices with iOS 4.0 or higher and requires iTunes 9.2 or higher.

We’ll be road testing this new application this week in Sydney – stay tuned for our reviews.

This is shaping up as yet another major development for Livescribe in 2010 – the breakthrough year
