Not true*

FIDE (and anything under FIDE rules) does certify some purpose built digital recording devices, they are hilariously expensive and hilariously crap but they exist.

For the curious, the FIDE requirements for electronic score sheets are in this document [1].

The USCF certification requirements are here [2]. This also includes a list of USCF certified electronic scoresheets.

I really like Chess Score Pad for iOS, but it's not approved for tournament use.

I like ChessNoteR almost as much, and it's USCF-approved. Not FIDE-approved yet, but they're working on it.
