Although not as elegant as the iOS solution, this app seems to work pretty well for managing the connection to the pen. It can sometimes be a little slow at the initial connection but I suspect this is down to device subtleties rather than the app itself. My only issue so far has been doing firmware updates which required 2 restarts of the app/pen to complete but each time, it restarted the update where it had left off and continued on it's merry way. Overall, not a bad effort for a complex platform and looking forward to future improvements. to make the process smoother and faster.
Utilizing the app no problems, saving meetings, then all of a sudden the app says you need to uninstall! Ok, but where's my stuff that I recorded?? If the pen was cheap this applications quality would be understandable, but it's NOT!! I hate this app and will never buy another pen. Not dependable at all. Beware!!
I also gave the Livescribe+ app a bad review because this app is absolutely necessary to pair a pen to an Android device. The Livescribe+ app forces users to uninstall this app, and (for my phone anyway,) this causes my pen to unpair. For the Android users out there who still have the option to return the pen, return it and get an echo instead, but only do so if you are ok with using a laptop or desktop computer. If not, you'll have to get an Apple (iPhone, iPad, etc.) for your pen to smoothly sync your notes.
I really love the pen, I never miss anything in class. I can share with my classmates; notes, pen casts, or the entire notebook. I recommend this pen for anyone who has trouble in school getting the notes down. When I have problems, I just record the lectures.
Bluetooth disconnection constantly Like most of us, I reset everything turned it off removed app, hard restart etc. Chat support weren't able to help. I'm having regrets.
Not great. Seems like half the buttons don't work. Did they forget to code them??? Even hard tapping I get zero response in particular from the forget device option. Makes troubleshooting the pen pretty hard
Numerous performance and stability improvements:
