A smartpen like the Livescribe 3 can help you stay organized and productive. Now Livescribe has announced a new partnership with Microsoft that could help you consolidate all your notes in one location. For the first time, you can send notes taken with your smartpen directly from the Livescribe mobile app to Microsoft OneNote. From there, you can organize entire pages of Livescribe notes, or simply incorporate snippets of information into your OneNote notebooks.

Once you sync your Livescribe notes with your OneNote account, you can organize them using either the mobile or desktop version of OneNote. Compared to competing note-taking apps, OneNote has one big advantage: full integration with Microsoft Office. Like other apps in Microsoft's Office 365 suite, OneNote automatically syncs to the cloud, so your notes are accessible from anywhere, on any Internet-connected device. And when you want to recall a specific note, the app's deep search functionality can help you find it.

The LiveScribe 3 smartpen is a real pen that syncs your written notes with your computer or mobile device, so you can hang onto crucial information jotted down during a business meeting. It works by tracking the ink marks made in special Livescribe notebooks, then recreating your notes in digital form. Unlike older models, which required users to connect the smartpen to their laptops via USB to initiate syncing, the new Livescribe pen maintains a Bluetooth connection to accomplish the feat wirelessly.
