The Livescribe Echo Smartpen is the successor of the popular Livescribe Pulse Smartpen. The Pulse pen was great and let users take notes like never before, but the following are five awesome features that make the Livescribe Echo the smarter choice.
The new Pencast feature of the Livescribe Echo Smartpen allows users to save and share Livescribe Echo files that are saved on the desktop with others that have the Livescribe Desktop software – which is available online for free – installed on their computer. Pencast will allow users to read notes with integrated audio and can even be shared on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad with the Pencast Player app.
If connecting via the Livescribe Echo’s Pencast platform wasn’t enough, Livescribe also provided an easier way to share your notes and ideas with others using Livescribe Connect. Connect will allow Livescribe Echo users to quickly transfer their Livescribe Echo notes and Pencast PDFs via email, third party applications, and websites – on both Mac and PC.
The Livescribe Echo Smartpen will feature up to 60 apps and the new Launch Line feature of the Echo pen will make accessing those apps very easy. Instead of wasting time going through the Livescribe Echo’s menu to access apps, Launch Line will allow you to underline specific keywords and tap to execute the app of your choice.
Livescribe Echo brought about one of the best improvement to the Livescribe Desktop software by adding an extra layer of security to your Livescribe Echo files; password protection. The new password protection feature of the Livescribe Echo Smartpen will ensure that audio recorded with the Livescribe Echo Smartpen stay private and can also make identifying the Echo pen owner easier.
More Recording Time
The Livescribe Pulse Pen came in two variants – 2GB and 4GB – peaking at 400 hours recording time, but the Livescribe Echo Smartpen can double the Pulse’s recording time by offering 4GB and 8GB versions – and offering up to 800 hours of recording time. With up to 800 hours of recording time, the Livescribe Echo Smartpen will likely never run out of battery life and will be there for all of your recording needs.
