Last year (2016) Moleskine introduced his smart writing set, that allows users jot down their notes into a uniquely textured Moleskine notebook and transfer them to an Android and iOS app. currently the company is collaborating with Microsoft to bring the Moleskine Notes app directly to Windows 10, so you’ll see your notes in real-time on your Surface device. The app is free, but the Paper tablet notebook and Pen+ will price you $199. Replacement smart Planners price $29.90.
In addition to the transcribing your handwritten notes and sharing them to iCloud, Google Drive, Evernote, and Adobe, the Windows 10 Notes app brings some new features. you’ll also draw pictures and charts which will be copied into PowerPoint, OneNote, and Word, making it simple to make presentations and save all of your frenzied brainstorm doodles. There’s also a new “Collaborative Ideation” feature, that permits you to and up to 6 of your richest friends connect your smartpens together and actively participate in projects. Fun!
Plenty of companies have their own analog-to-digital smartpen and notebook systems, from Livescribe’s line of smartpens, that debuted in 2012, to Montblanc’s digital notebook wrapped in Italian leather. These products have all forced users to dig through their notes within their own poorly-designed apps tho’, which is why Moleskine’s Notes app for Windows 10 makes a little bit more sense. Still, if you’ve a Surface device, wouldn’t it be easier to simply write directly on that with the Surface Pen? perhaps if you’re troubled regarding distraction, today’s research that laptops are terrible for students at lectures can provide you with the push to start reconsidering pen and paper.
