LiveScribe connect for ECHO smartpen – now able to sync with Google Apps

This is absolutely great news for me as I was waiting for this feature for a long time. In meantime I was using to sync with EverNote but it was not the same as the possibility to finally connect to my Google Apps and sync the created documents, notes with my Google Docs. Livescribe has released new updated software for Desktop version 2.7.2 as well as now released a new plugin the Livescribe Connector. Live scribe connect is not free … it cost 14.99 USD but it is worth every penny.

“Note: All 4GB and 8GB Echo smartpen users receive Livescribe Connect Premium for free as part of their Livescribe Desktop download. All Pulse and 2GB Echo smartpen users can upgrade to Connect Premium for these additional sharing capabilities.”
