The most recent software update released by Livescribe for the Sky WiFi smartpen contains an important new feature – Sync to Evernote via cable.

What this means is that you can use your laptop (that’s connected to the internet) to sync content to Evernote.

  1. Launch Livescribe Helper.
  2. Plug in your Sky wifi smartpen.
  3. Livescribe Helper will check for required firmware updates.
  4. Next, you’ll be given the option to sync your Sky wifi smartpen to your Evernote account.
