Livescribe+ for Android Brings the Best of Handwritten Notes and Digital Organization to Both iOS and Android Devices
Oakland, Calif. – May 12, 2015 - Livescribe Inc. (www.livescribe.com), the leading manufacturer of smartpens, launched the Android version of the Livescribe+ app globally today, opening up the award-winning Livescribe 3 smartpen to millions of Android smartphones and tablets.
Android users can start digitizing, searching and sharing their handwritten notes by picking up a Livescribe 3 smartpen and downloading the Livescribe+ app, free on the Google Play store. Initially launched for iOS, Livescribe+ for Android has been optimized for Android by incorporating Google’s Material Design guidelines to introduce a unique Android approach to the app’s core functions and user experience.
“Android support is a huge milestone for the Livescribe 3 smartpen,” said Gilles Bouchard, CEO of Livescribe. “The Livescribe 3 has proven that handwriting with real ink on real paper is even more useful when paired with the mobile devices we use every day. Studies show that writing things down helps people understand and remember the discussion better, and a digital copy of your notes is even more important when you’re on the go.”
One Livescribe 3 smartpen can sync with up to four iOS and Android devices, so people can access the same notes whenever they need them, on their iPad as well as their Android smartphone, or any other combination of iOS and Android mobile devices. Livescribe+ and the Livescribe 3 smartpen are compatible with devices running Android OS v4.4.2 (KitKat) or newer, with support for Bluetooth® Smart (aka Bluetooth 4.0 low energy). The Livescribe 3 smartpen uses Bluetooth Smart to easily connect to multiple devices and deliver up to 14 hours of continuous writing on one charge.
