Back in January, Livescribe announced that Livescribe 3 would be available for Android this spring. Well, it is now available in preview mode with full public release in a few weeks.
I love my Livescribe SmartPen. I use it all the time to take notes at meetings and keep myself organized. I love how it also records audio and keeps it in sync with your handwritten notes and can sync over WiFi to my Evernote account.
Livescribe released the Livescribe 3 last year with an iOS app that let you sync directly to your iPhone (and into Evernote and OneNote). It also allows searching handwriting, converting handwriting to digital text and more. "Your Livescribe 3 pairs with Livescribe+ to instantly sync everything you write on paper directly onto your iPhone or iPad. Your notes become more useful when they are organized, tagged, searchable and converted to text."
The Android App works on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and above. The Android app also works the same as the iOS version. It's very simple, showing you the physical notebook connected to your pen. The notebook pages scroll from left to right chronologically.
