You probably already have a list of your favorite smartphone apps – the ones that are the most fun, or the most productive. At Livescribe, we have the same kind of list for our smartpen apps. As far as productivity goes, Wikipedia ranks right up there with the best. So, in honor of today’s launch of the Wikipedia smartpen app, we thought we’d share our list.
- Wikipedia: How many times have you sat in a meeting only ∏ understanding what’s being said around you? With the Wikipedia app, you’ll be able to instantly define tricky words and concepts without ever booting up your laptop.
- MyScript: Need to quickly transfer your notes from written word to typed text? This is the ‘app for that.’
- Evernote: Once you’ve docked your pen and uploaded your notes, you can share them into your Evernote account – one more place to store and share, making your notes infinitely more useful and mobile.
- Translation: The Spanish-English dictionary lets you write a word in English, tap it with your smartpen and hear AND see the word in Spanish. Great for traveling, learning a new language or communicating with taxi drivers in Mexico!
- Pencast player: No ‘favorite app’ list would be complete without mentioning an iPhone app. Our favorite (yes, we’re biased) is the Livescribe pencast player for iPhone/iPod/iPad. Once your notes are uploaded, you can access them – along with audio – from the pencast player app. Don’t have your notebook at hand? No worries, you can still review your last meeting/lecture from your i-device.
