Livescribe and Evernote integration – getting better!

Finally!  The Livescribe and Evernote integration has been pretty much re-designed.  I have been waiting for this since I got my Livescribe pen a few months ago.  One of my biggest issues was that if I had multiple pages to send to Evernote, they would each get sent into a separate note!  I would then have to copy and paste them into one note, and rename the whole bundle once it was in Evernote.  What a pain.  Now it’s all sorted out!  Sort of.  They added this new thing called Livescribe Connect.

You can connect to your computer, email, Evernote, Facebook, Google Docs, My Livescribe, and your mobile pencast app.  Well, the only one I really care about is Evernote, but the rest are cool too, I suppose.  The big change is, you can just select the pages you want to send, and then drag and drop them onto the relevant item in the Connect sidebar.  And all the pages go into the same note!  Woo hoo!  I actually just sent Livescribe’s support desk an email this past weekend, requesting this very feature.  I got a canned response thanking me for the suggestion, and it would be sent on to the relevant engineers for consideration in future updates.  I guess they didn’t actually read it, because they could have told me there was an update the next day that would directly address my issue.  Ah, well.

Another cool feature – you can automatically send pages to Evernote right from the notebook, simply by writing a command line (a back and forth horizontal line), and the word Evernote, and then tapping the pages that you want to send.  Next time the pen synch’s with a computer, those pages will be sent automatically.  I have yet to try this.  It might be more trouble than it’s worth (why not just drag the pages in the software?).  But it seems like a neat little trick.
