What's New

Bug fix involving Sync.

App Description

Use Your Handwriting® (UYH®) lets you finger write quick notes, lists and messages on your iPhone or iPad. Its unique handwriting engine simulates the physics of a fountain pen to produce smooth and fulfilling drawing strokes. Your handwriting will flow beautifully and come out looking elegant with natural variations in darkness and thickness.

The beauty of UYH is accompanied by a powerful set of features: multi-level lists, quick alarms, sync across devices, visualize notes online, calendar and hands-on tutorial for every feature. Use it to take notes, for brainstorming, to outline your ideas, as a whiteboard, as a calendar for task management, or as a replacement for sticky notes.

This GOLD version is ad free and includes a lifetime subscription to our sync service, MyUYH.

NEW! View any list on your Apple Watch.




No matter what your 4th grade teacher told you, you have beautiful handwriting. What you couldn’t do with a pen, you can do with UYH. Choose between five different writing styles and your calligraphy will be amazing everyone in no time.


Plan your weekly schedule in UYH by annotating days with your handwritten notes. It's quick but also powerful. Use it to jot down a quick todo and see it in Notification Center, or to take down elaborate categorized logs. Calendar notes scheduled for today appear in the UYH app on your Apple Watch!


Need a reminder? Scribble a note, press and hold it and pick a time. You will be alerted in time even if the app is not active, or your device is asleep. The alert will even show on your Apple Watch!


With UYH, there’s no limit to expressing yourself. Write as much as you want and UYH will effectively organize your note onto the screen.


Why? Because handwritten messages to friends mean so much more! Plus, we bring you for the first time on the iPhone special multicolor lists to bring out the artist in you. Create your own colorful greetings for any occasion and email them to that special someone, or cut and paste them in other apps, such as MMS.


So you think eight lists are not enough? In UYH, any item in a list can become its own sublist, so there’s no limit to how many lists and notes you can create.


You can sync notes across any number of devices via www.myuyh.com. You can even publish your notes as web pages and view them online. The website lets you view your notes in several formats suitable for brainstorming and mind mapping.
