IntelliPen Pro review
Unlike other digital pens, this device can be used with any type of paper as the receiver simply clips to the edge. When you begin to write or draw, the motion of the pen is translated into an accurate digital file that’s saved to the receiver. The receiver then plugs into a spare USB port.
We liked the fact that the built-in software gives you access to basic editing functions, but the Pro version also includes a free copy of MyScript Notes 3 – a desktop application that expands the pen’s capabilities enormously.
The software, though, wasn’t able to open the document directly in Word, instead opening TextEdit, but Mail was started when we asked the software to send our notes as an email.
The ability of this system to use any paper, and its low price point, makes the IntelliPen Pro a great way to dip a toe in the water of digital pen technology.
