Livescribe Pulse Pen Timer


Livescribe Pulse Smartpen application that implements a simple countdown timer. The pen itself has several applications for recording written notes and audio. Many users had requested a countdown timer application even before Livescribe released a development kit for the pen. This application was also entered in the Livescribe Developer Challenge.

The Pulse Pen Timer application is a simple countdown timer. It can be used in man situations, like setting time limits in meetings or short-term reminders. This version, intended to be a free version with a paid version to follow, has limited features. The initial starting times are selected from the application menu. The starting times are limited to 5, 10, 15, and 30 seconds or 1, 5, 10, 15, and 30 minutes or 1 hour. In addition the alarm that sounds when the timer expires is configurable from a set of pre-loaded sounds. Similarly a 5, 2, and 1 minute warning sound can be configured from the same set of sounds.

The not-released paid version will (would) allow creation of timer regions on the dot-paper. These regions are drawn and configured with alarm and warning sounds as well as an initial time. When reactivated they immediately begin their countdown. This mode allows you to preconfigure timers for later, quick, use.


NOTE: Unfortunately Livescribe has since discontinued their developer program. Alas, this product never made it to market.
