New apps take what people write or sketch on paper with a smart pen and enhance it with highlights, graphics and text. The written word can also be shared by email or to other apps such as Dropbox, for cloud storage, or Evernote for archiving.

EquilNote, an app for the iPhone and iPad, is paired with a smart pen called the Equil JOT. Its creators said the appeal is to preserve the art of writing, while updating it with digital enhancements.

"The best ideas often start on paper," said Greg Appelhof, president of the Americas for Equil, a South Korea-based company.

"But people use all sorts of ways of capturing notes, from sheets of paper to very expensive journals. We wanted to create something that could capture it all, regardless of where it was written," he said in an interview.

As a note is written with the smart pen, it is simultaneously visible in the app and accurate to a pixel, according to Appelhof.

The app communicates via Bluetooth with the smart pen and a receiver that sits at the top of a piece of paper. The receiver determines the smart pen's position using infrared and ultrasonic waves.
