Week 2 of using the Livescribe pen. In fact, I wrote this blog on Livescribe dot paper in hopes that I could have my handwriting transcribed to drop right into WordPress. The transcription worked pretty well, I probably spent 3 minutes editing and reformatting this, but that’s not too bad. I guess my n’s look like r’s, that’s what I’ve learned.
So far I’ve enjoyed using the pen in meetings in favor of using the iPad. Docking is a pain, not sure why they don’t have bluetooth available for that. I feel like I’m in 2004 having to dock this thing.
The pen itself is still bigger than I would like but I’m getting used to it. They really need to come up with a smaller pen but I’m sure they’ll get to that. I do love the ability to capture drawings and sketches that I make when taking notes and brainstorming.
I’d love more integration to apps and programs as well, feels like there hasn’t been much done on that front yet.
The ability to write a blog post during a meeting is pretty great. I’m already dreaming up applications I’d like to see to help me manage my notes, to do’s and, um, multitasking. ;)
PS – to my knowledge there isn’t a built-in transcribing application with LiveScribe so for the time being I’m using MyScript on a trial basis to test it out. That’s what I used to transcribe this.
