MyScript, which deals in creating handwriting recognition technology, has announced that it intends to bring two applications to iOS 8 as alternatives to keyboard entry.

The first app will allow for real-time text input using a fingertip and stylus, with handwritten input converted into digital text in real time. Users will also be able to use gestures for editing – meaning that words and sentences can be moved, split, joined, overwritten, and erased quickly.

The second app will allow users to write characters on top of each other, which should be helpful for quickly inputting phone numbers, composing tweets, and writing text messages with fingertips.

These two applications from MyScript are set to launch alongside iOS 8 this Fall.
