WritePad I Handwriting to Text

WritePad I Handwriting to Text

PhatWare Corp

Writepad for iPad is narrowly focused on converting handwriting into text, and as such does not offer a standalone handwriting mode. However, Writepad does include some other unique and, if we're honest, somewhat odd features, such as the ability to make a phone call from the app by clicking on a phone number, a built-in calculator, an admittedly well-designed shorthand mode, and the ability to load URLs. These extras would be great if Writepad were better at its primary purpose, notetaking. The handwriting conversion process is slow and thus makes writing awkward in full screen mode. The zoomed mode only supports one line of text and forces you to choose one of the app's suggested conversions even if none are correct. In addition, one of the app's features, "detect shapes" doesn't work properly; instead of improving drawn circles and squares, Writepad thought many of my letters were shapes and tried to correct them, which made it nearly impossible to write effectively.
