What's New

1. Improved handwriting recognition engine now allows disabling unused letter shapes, which may help to expedite the application’s learning curve. *
2. Synchronization with Evernote (by default, WritePad synchronizes with Dropbox; use Options->Synchronization Settings to enable sync with Evernote).
3. New command displays document statistics, such as word and character count (Toolbar->Info).
4. Improved synchronization with Dropbox.
5. New command allows users to upload WritePad documents to their Google Documents account as text or PDF (Share->Send to Google Docs).
6. Improved user interface and graphics.
7. Text selection modified to mimic standard iPad selection style.

* If the handwriting works good for you already, we recommend that you do not disable any shapes, however if one of your letters is often recognized as another, you may be able to fix it by disabling one or more shapes of the second letter. To view shapes go to Options->Letter Shapes.

App Description

WritePad is a text editor which incorporates advanced handwriting recognition software for text entry. WritePad recognizes cursive, print, and mixed handwriting styles. To enter the text you can simply write with your finger* on the iPhone screen in either landscape or portrait mode employing your own handwriting style. It also allows easily switching between the handwriting recognition and the standard iPhone keyboard.

With WritePad you can create text documents and store them on your iPhone. The built-in HTTP server allows you to exchange files between iPhone devices connected to the same WiFi network, or to upload files onto the desktop PC using the Internet browser. You can also send emails directly from WritePad and use copy/paste to transfer text between WritePad and other applications.

* You can get even better results by using a stylus for iPhone or iPod Touch such as True Touch Stylus Pen from hdaccessory.com
