WritePad


WritePad's is an advanced text input app which aims to replace the on-screen keyboard with PhatWare's proven multilingual handwriting recognition technology and can be used for text input in any app. WritePad supports most Android Smartphones and Tablets and is especially useful on pen-enabled Tablets, but also works well when writing with a finger.

WritePad features state-of-the-art handwriting recognition technology which supports practically any handwriting style, including cursive (script), print, and mixed. The software analyzes pen strokes written in the designated WritePad area, then converts those pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to the target application. While other handwriting recognition apps leave users frustrated with the app’s inability to correctly interpret their handwriting, adapts and learns the user’s style of writing.

Using WritePad children can practice writing in print or cursive and use the built-in calculator for homework.

Key WritePad features:
- Advanced multilingual handwriting recognition engine supports 12 languages, including Danish, Dutch, English (UK and US), Finnish, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal), Swedish, and Spanish.
- Integration with any application allowing text input, such as email, SMS, notes, word processing, and others.
- Customizable auto-corrector, which automatically fixes common spelling and recognition errors and learns user’s own handwriting style.
- Editable user dictionary to improve recognition of custom words and names not included in the main dictionary.
- Built-in full keyboard with autocomplete; if needed, users can switch between keyboard and handwriting with a single touch of a button.
- Built-in calculator, enabling users to write simple equations such as "22.3+15.66=" and WritePad will calculate the result.
- Letter shape selector allows users to further improve recognition quality by disabling unused letter shapes.

So much potential - But... This still isn't up to par with competition. No palm rejection if using with stylus (on Note series products). Also can't make the writing area smaller or larger depending on your preference. Recognition is okay with finger and not great with stylus. I do enjoy the "Shorthand" options! wish I could use the App more, just too frustrating for now!

No go I couldn't even use the app. Downloaded it once and it didn't work so I got a refund then downloaded it again to see if maybe it would work... still didn't! But second time around it wouldn't give me a refund. I downloaded this app because I heard it was good. Didn't work. Couldn't tell ya. But I'm still waiting for a refund!

Brilliant I have used this program now for a year and it is brilliant, at least on a Nexus 7. It provides rather good accuracy and has improved over time at identifying my cursive. I have noticed that it works better with some programs than others but over time it has gotten better. It is my keyboard interface of choice. Addendum: I've noticed recently the writing cursive X when part of a word is problematic. MyScript had the same problem but have rectified this within a few weeks of my comment.
