"I dig it. It works."4.5 starson by ronz01
Pros: Works as advertized.
Relatively easy to use.
Cons: Must keep track of one or more notebooks, the pen, a cradle, the sheath, and the earphones at all times.
Livescribe website help resources are not a strong point.
Moral dilemma when you want to record someone and are afraid to ask first.
Summary: The pen digitizes as you take notes as the sound recorder records what is being said (as well as any other sounds). At the end of notetaking, you have a written record on paper, a digitized recording of the writing/drawing you did (in the pen), and a sound recording (in the pen), all linked in time. Tap on a word in your notes, and the pen plays back the sound recording starting at that instant in time, so you get the full context for your note. Now, upload the notes and recording to the web site, and you can do a full text search of both notes and recording. How about that!?
