Livescribe 3 works on select Android devicesThe Livescribe 3 smartpen has been an extremely popular smartpen and also introduced a new style of smartpen that has won multiple design awards since their launch in early 2014. Livescribe 3 continues Livescribe’s long held leadership position in defining the ongoing relevance and value of hand writing for users across the education and business spectrum.

By adding support for modern Android smart devices Livescribe brings back support for classic pen-on-paper note taking and amplifies this experience – making our natural pen and paper experiences more actionable, more useful, and more relevant.

What is Preview Edition?

The Preview Edition will include most of the features expected in the full release, including digital conversion of handwriting, recording of pencasts and the ability to share notes via email, Evernote, Microsoft OneNote and other apps.

However, certain features will be added in the full release version, or after initial launch. Future updates will introduce the ability to add a security PIN code to a smartpen, Auto-Send notebooks to cloud services and the ability to tag notes and add them to Collections.
