I had been looking for a way to easily take notes on my Asus tablet using a stylus, but due to the screen configuration it turned out not to be practical unless I use the docking keyboard. I was looking for another tablet/solution and came across the Livescribe pen. I read a number of reviews and watched user and review videos. It looked like the real McCoy and I bought it today. I have already installed the software, updated the pen, installed MyScript, and used the software to accomplish exactly what the pen is advertised to do. Now I can take notes in a way that I am accustomed to do and then use them on my tablet - a great solution. I am very pleased with the Echo and look forward to using it on a regular basis. I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about taking notes and transferring them easily to a computer/tablet, including converting them to text for emailing and sharing. This is something really rare: an excellent product!
I've read many reviews of folks having problems. But their issues are with installing the software or downloading, not with the already functioning suite. I would suspect that if they got it installed properly, through whatever means was preventing their success, they would be as pleased with this product as everyone else. I have never had any problems either downloading software, installing software or connecting the pen. Everything works perfectly.
I have had this for a few months. I have installed the software on my personal laptop and my work computer. This is great for in-flight work where trying to pull out the laptop in economy doesn't work. I also use it to record our management meetings and take notes. The ability to go to the recording at the time of writing is awesome. Makes following up very easy. I have only installed on Windows 7 (home and pro) machines, but I haven't had any difficulties. Since I have the 8GB pro pack, I did find I had to plug in the pen before the extra pro update would download. Overall, this has been a great time saver.
Wow, cool add-on to my Pulse pen. I teach college and plan on using this new feature to create teaching materials. I've already played with the email and PDF functions and I love them. Flowcharts, here I come.
No problem installing.
As a long time pulse user I took the plung and upgraded to the premium apps. I purchased from within livescribe desktop (Mac) and it was installed in seconds. My wife is using the premium echo pack on her windows machine without problems either. Maybe the issues reported earlier are fixed now.
Was very excited to use this with my brand new pen but no such luck. I have found a few recomendations to reinstall firmware but that seems odd since it is brand new and has the latest firmware. I am excited about the potential of the software but still can't install.
After attempting to install using various browsers, I could not install the program. How am I supposed to use this smart pen now? Disappointed :-(
So far I have wasted two hours of my life trying to login to Livescribe Desktop. I have heard a good recommendation about the NotesPlus system with iPAD. I will try that next.
If you have a PC and someone gives you a smart pen. Be kind but tell them no way in **ll do I want that thing.
all, i had the same problem and found this in the KB files. I hope this helps.http://support.livescribe.com/entries/20360808-29001-windows-master-reset-and-firmware-update-utility
I wish I had read the review before I bought this thing. It wont intall!!!
Cannot download the Connect Premium Upgrade Pack that was supposed to come with my 8 gb pro pack. I am running windows and 2.8.2 version.
I've been trying to get this installed for MONTHS. Do not buy it if you have Windows. This is really irritating. At this point. Fix this problem or refund our money. This sounds like deceptive practices and fraudulent practice folks ...
Anyone that is having this problem with not being able to access premium connector content is easily fixed! Just follow this link :) http://support.livescribe.com/entries/20362751-85821-mac-livescribe-desktop-firmware-update-message-this-software-cannot-be-installed-on-attached-p
hey do we only have to write send in paper and it sends directly to mails or open our computer and do.
I have a 4gb Echo and the connect software works perfectly. I have connected all my info, sent email, and even to facebook with no trouble at all. I tested to mobil device, and that works great as well. The google docs is really cool if you like to share in the PDF format. I like my pen, I do not use it for everything, but it is a great way to share diagrams with others. I also connected it to my Ipad, now if I could just write on my Ipad with this, now that would be too cool! Thanks for the great software! Robert
I have a 4GB Echo Pen and it doesn't have Connect installed on it. I can't seem to access anything I need on your site either. What's up?
I can't download the premium software even though I have a 4GB pen. The first complaint should have been enough to get this fixed.
Guys, this is stupid. Why are we all having problems with this? Someone figure this out.
I just brought an 8 g pen. It looked like a very useful tool. However, what good is it if I can not install the software. I guess I waisted my money
I have an 8GB Echo pen, but the application that's installed just appears to be the regular Connect, not the premium version. How can I fix this?
After going round and round with Service and support, the application shows up on my desktop but will not transfer to the pulse smartpen 2 Gb. I sent a screen shot to technical support, which appears to have been ignored that shows it is there, but doesn't install. Don't waste your money... promises ot kept.
I bought this and it won't install' I've tried everywhere to get support to help but there isn't any' Don't buy this till they get this fixed' Docdj1966
The upgrade pac likely won't install. Version 2.7.2 has air port software that interrupts connect installation.
