What are the requirements for using my "Aegir" or "Livescribe 3" smartpen with Livescribe+ on iOS or Android?
Learn about compatible devices and system requirements on Livescribe's Knowledge Base here:
The Aegir (and Livescribe 3) smartpens require a Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) 4.0 (or later) Smart Ready mobile device running iOS 7 (or later) or Android KitKat 4.4.2 (or later) in order to transfer data. A list of devices includes the following:
  • iPhone 4S or newer. The iPhone 4 supports iOS 7 but not Bluetooth v4. The software will install, but the Livescribe 3 smartpen will not sync.
  • iPad 3rd generation (or newer), iPad Air (all), iPad Mini (all)
  • iPod touch 5th generation (or newer)
  • Android device: install Livescribe+ app from Google Play. If it works and syncs to your smartpen, it is supported!

To check the compatibility of your iOS iPhone or iPad device:
  1. Tap the "Settings" icon on your device.
  2. Tap "General".
  3. Tap "About".
  4. Scroll down to "Model".
To check the compatibility of your Android device simply install Livescribe+. Run Livescribe Link and the app will notify you if your device is compatible or not. In a short phrase, if it works on your device, it works. If it doesn't, it is not supported!
