"Plenty of potential but almost useless as is."1.0 starson by Kregear3
Pros: A very cool concept.
Cons: -No way to transfer audio from computer to pen so you can sync notes
-Do not expect any support from livescribe, forum does not work and no replies to email
-once you remove notes from pen there is no way to put them back
Summary: This pen has so much potential but livescribe for whatever reason makes every task either impossible or so combersome it is not worth it. I have a lot of audio on my computer that I would love to transfer to the pen in order to record notes to but this is impossible. The only work around is to play the audio and record it on the pen but one must have a silent place to do this as you will record all ambient noise. Also if you are not around when the audio is done it will continue recording indefinitely; wasting space. There is no way to crop this wasted dead space.
Another flaw that I do not understand is that once you archive your notes to the computer, taking them off the pen, you can not ever transfer those notes back to the pen. I do not understand why livescribe would do this.
I was very excited when I ordered this pen but after spending many hours on forums trying to figure this pen out I am coming to the conclusion it is practically worthless to me.
