Entering text into a tablet can be a troublesome affair – especially when you don’t have an external physical keyboard, and you dislike typing on the touchscreen keyboard. Well the folks over at PhatWare have developed an app called WritePad that attempts to alleviate the situation. What if you could write your text instead of typing on a non-tactile keyboard?
WritePad is an advanced notetaker app that allows you to input text with your regular handwriting. You can write text by tracing words on the screen with your fingers, or you can use the aid of stylus. WritePad will read your writing and convert it into digital text.
PhatWare has just announced the release of WritePad 5, which includes new features such as the ability to synchronize WritePad notes with Evernote, the option to upload documents to Google Docs as PDF or regular text files. Other changes include an improved handwriting recognition engine, the ability to view document statistics (i.e. word/character count), improved synchronization with Dropbox, User Interface and graphics improvement, and text selection modified to mimic standard iPad selection style.
PhatWare WritePad 5 is available now from the App Store for $9.99.
