PageTag is a unique pen based application that makes it easy to create, browse and search tags in a Livescribe notebook. It enables the storage of a text (letters or digits) tag, date & time of creation, and location information (notebook, page number and page coordinates).

Important Features are:

  1. Tags can be browsed or searched, on the pen itself
  2. Customization options allow the selection and ordering the metadata to be displayed
  3. Flick through the information to quick find that important question in class or the action item in the meeting
  4. QuickTag to place tags without having to create the text (i.e. circle existing notes, and tag it as important)
  5. Tap 'N Pick existing tags and reuse
  6. Tutorials to practice writing and double tapping
  7. Limit is 200 tags. Entries need to be deleted to make space.

Tags are created using on-pen Hand Writing Recognition (HWR). PageTag supports creation of English/ Numeric Tags for any Locale.
