Changes to the Livescribe smartpen Range

I’ve been advised by Livescribe that effective immediately the product range of smartpens will be reduced to two core SKU’s – the 2GB Echo smartpen, and the Livescribe 3 Black Edition.

No further changes are expected to the product range for the foreseeable future. Both the 2GB Echo and LS3

How to access the audio file from a Livescribe 3 smartpen recording

As many of you know, the Livescribe 3 smartpen uses your companion tablet or smartphone to record audio (unlike the Echo smartpen where the recording is on-board the pen).
