- The digital lifestyle.com product reviewReview by Ian Dixon
The pen enables you to capture hand written notes either as they are written directly into their app or can captured and downloaded later. It works by using a special pen and receiver combined with an application that handles the transfer and text recognition. You clip the receiver on to the top of your paper and then write using the pen as it transmits the pen strokes back to Windows. As well as using it for text input you can use it as a mouse pointer and Windows sees the pen as a tablet input device so you could use it with applications like OneNote, or add text to images. I managed to use it with Powerpoint and add annotations to the document.

- This little marvel will save you time and energy and your fingers will thank you for it! Never has there been a more useful pen and the fact that it's Android compatible is the icing on the cake. Review by Heavenly Android
Have you ever needed to type up some notes on your PC at an inconvenient time? The best you could manage was to scribble whatever info on a piece of paper to be typed up later on. There is a strong chance that on numerous occasions you simply didn't get round to this task or even mislayed your handwritten notes. Not good!
