Thanks Rebecca! The fact users can’t change the Aegir’s playback speed through its app is just bizarre. (I assume one would have to first export as a different file type and then open with another media player to be able to do that?) One of my biggest disappointments with the LiveScribe 3 has been its head-scratching loss of functionality. Unlike the Echo\Sky, the LS3 is incapable of synchronizing new notes to the audio playback. (Arguably this is a key feature for many students who find note-taking during class a difficult learning barrier.)

Question: Can the Aegir sync new notes to the audio playback?

Hi Everyone,
A little bit of background: I have been using these pens since 2007 and have a long history with them and have evaluated every model that has come out. with a student pilot group. I currently have about 300 Echo pens in rotation with current students. Letting you know that the only model that I really have endorsed until now is the Echo.

I have been using the Aegir Marlin edition for about a week in different situations evaluating it.

Current Evaluation Pro's
1) Works with existing Livescribe Paper.
2) Does not appear to run the battery down excessively on my iPhone 6 plus.
3) No extra headphones to attach/ purchase/maintain.
4) Exports as PDF, Livescribe PDF, and Video (multiple settings, MOV, MP4)
5) Opens in Livescribe web player or can be imported into Expo Desktop.
6) I can send to Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, or One Note.
7) I can email or print immediately from my phone without having to transfer.
8) I can add photos to notes
9) I can set reminders tied to the notes and assign tags
10) The Livescribe+ app is intuitive and has not been hard to navigate.

Current Evaluation Con's
1) Can't speed up/slow down recording.
2) Possibly having to keep a 2nd device charged (but hasn't been an issue -- I used the pen in an all-day workshop (9 am - 4 pm) and still had over half my phone battery and not connected to the local wireless (using cell service) - I did turn off notifications and other apps while using the phone to record though)

My Initial evaluation is very positive. Benefits are the price point. It is not draining my device. I can play from the paper notes and the notes in the app. (both played from the device)
I think the biggest game changer with this model is being able to export as a video. That I can upload into youtube and caption or send out for captioning. I have not noticed a drain on the battery or if my phone went to sleep, it didn't affect the recording.

Please let me know what other questions you have and I will try to answer them.
