        What is the Livescribe Symphony digital pen anyway?

        It can do this live – whatever you write or draw appearing on your iDevice in real-time – or it can store more than 1,000 US letter pages worth of writing and drawing for syncing later. It does this via a number of different cloud services, including Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneNote. It can also feed your notes into Evernote.

        You can choose the format in which your words are stored: either the original handwritten text, or it can use built-in optical character recognition to turn them into plain text.

         

        It’s a conventional pen, which writes on paper, with a couple of additions. First, a camera, pointed down at the nib. This records everything the pen writes and transmits a digital version of it to a companion device – an iPhone or an iPad.

        Our Office Manager has been using a Livescribe Echo digital pen with Window 7 and Windows 10 for quite some time.  Presumably the Symphony is its lineal descendant…
