From time to time, when Livescribe updates its app for iOS and a firmware update may be included for the pen. To perform the firmware update, you need to open the app, tap on settings and have the pen on. Then, you can connect to the pen and see that a firmware update can be applied.
You can even use Evernote Auto-Send with Livescribe 3. Livescribe describes using Evernote with it here.
The introduction of Send and Auto-Send gives you the ability to send any snippets, pages, pencasts and even entire notebooks from Livescribe+ directly to your Evernote account. Now you can continue working with your notes on your Windows or Mac PC, your Android device or any one of the many platforms supported by Evernote.
Using Send, you can select whatever content you want and choose the Evernote notebook to send your notes to. Send is all about giving you more control over what gets sent and where it goes. Auto-Send, on the other hand, lets you put things on ‘Automatic,’ so to say. Auto-Send allows you to set any notebook in Livescribe+ to automatically send all notes and any updates directly to your Evernote account.
The developer describes the app as follows:
Livescribe+ pairs with your Livescribe 3 smartpen to instantly sync everything you write on paper directly onto your iPhone or iPad. Your notes become more useful, more quickly when they’re organized, tagged, searchable and converted to text.
Notes, sketches, diagrams and drawings created with your Livescribe 3 smartpen show up instantly in Livescribe+.
Access your notes in 3 different views to get more out of them: (1) Page View shows your notebooks and pages exactly as they were written. (2) Feed View organizes your notes into smaller, actionable snippets sorted in a timeline. (3) Pencast View allows you to play back audio recordings synced to your notes so you can hear what was said exactly when you were writing.
Convert your handwritten notes into text to transform them into tasks, reminders, calendar events, new contacts and more. All with a few taps of your finger.
Create pencasts and add photos and typed memos directly in Livescribe+ to add more depth and context to your written notes.
Tag your notes in Feed view to create Collections that sort all your tagged content together.
Share PDF’s of your notes, pictures and pencasts through Mail, Messages, AirDrop, Evernote, Dropbox and more.
Livescribe 3 smartpens are compatible with iPhone 4S or newer, iPad 3rd Gen or newer, iPad mini or newer, iPod touch 5th Gen or newer.
