I was reading some of the reviews for the Aegir Smart Pen and some people
don't seem very happy with it. I see 2 main complaints:

1. The Aegir relies on the user's smart phone mic to record sound. If the
phone goes to sleep, the recording stops. (If the phone stays on it drains
the battery). Also if a phone call comes in to the phone, it interrupts the

2. The phone and the pen must be in sync through the app and sometimes the
app doesn't work or the 2 devices lose their sync.

Does anyone use the Aegir model? If so, have your students experienced
those issues? What is your favorite Smart Pen model? Any other insight you
may have is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
