Livescribe Echo Smartpen

Product Information

  • Overview

    The Echo smartpen records everything you hear and write, so you can find what you need with a simple tap. Ideal for meetings, conferences, or classes, this compact tool is as easy to carry as traditional pen-and-paper, but smarter. Replay your recorded audio anytime, anywhere, with a quick tap on your notes.

    Save, organize and search

    Livescribe Desktop lets you upload, save and play back your notes and audio from your Mac or PC. Type in specific words or phrases in the search window, and it will highlight every place you wrote them in your notes. Plus, you can organize your digital notes in custom notebooks.

    Send and share

    It's easy to share your notes or recordings as a PDF, audio file, or a pencast (an interactive flash movie of your handwritten notes and audio). You can publish pencasts online, share them privately via email, or post them directly on Facebook.


    Customize your smartpen with downloadable apps—from dictionaries to translators, time savers, games and more. New apps are always being added to make your smartpen even smarter.
