MyScript Announces Plans to Bring Handwriting Apps to iOS 8

Posted by Ellis Spice on July 2nd, 2014

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.

WWDC 2014 - Epic's Zen Garden, Made in Unreal Engine 4, Unveiled

Posted by Ellis Spice on June 3rd, 2014

Yesterday at Apple's WWDC 2014 keynote, Epic Games showed off Zen Garden, a demo that was created using Metal and Unreal Engine 4. The scene was built in order to demonstrate dynamic scenes and huge vistas using both technologies, and can be seen in the keynote if you skip to around the 99 minute mark.

Zen Garden will be available on the App Store after iOS8's public release this Fall, with further details set to be announced in a live stream on Twitch this Thursday. Metal will be introduced into Unreal Engine 4 "at an appropriate time" after beta NDAs for it have been lifted.
