Editors' Review

+
Even in the digital age, an old-fashioned scratch pad is hard to beat when in the middle of a brainstorming session. LivePad tries to update that old standby, offering space for taking notes in a way that mixes text, hand drawings, audio clips, voice comments, and screenshots. For students or a design team that's browsing the Web, this can be an invaluable way to mix media. A tabbed interface allows several documents to be open at once, and a password function protects them from unauthorized eyes. However, the program falls somewhat short of its lofty goals. It doesn't provide good tools for organizing notes, and lacks basic features such as the ability to link between documents. Nor does it always collect information smoothly--when we tried dragging and dropping pieces from Web pages, the program displayed links instead of images, for example. We also would like to see features such as an address book and scheduler. Overall, LivePad is well-suited for keeping a record of cross-media brainstorming, even if other aspects are underdeveloped.

"The basics don't work"

July 24, 2007

 |  Version: LivePad 1

Pros

don't know. Didn't get very far

Cons

Having used Microsoft garbage for so long, I just couldn't get over the fact that the simplest of things like the fonts don't work properly. As soon as it says Arial but its typing in Times New Roman I gave up. If they can't get that right, I don't want to be a part of it.

"Blackboard replacement"

August 18, 2006  |  By DevPlanner

 |  Version: LivePad 1

Pros

If you need a virtual boards set where you can place to-dos, notes, contacts, appointments then this product is good enough. Also if you are preparing for a meeting speech this is a good tool for designing presentation agendas. It can be printed or simply published as html on corporate intranet.

Cons

It requires MS Excel installed to work with worksheets.
