The purpose of this application is to demonstrate the handwriting recognition-based input method with a custom editor developed for PhatWare PhatNotes for iPhone and iPod Touch. WritePad includes the advanced handwriting recognition engine for the English language (support for several other languages will be available soon) developed specifically for iPhone. It recognizes all handwriting styles: cursive, print and mixed. 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. WritePad also allows easily switching between the handwriting recognition and the standard iPhone keyboard.
In the beginning the recognition quality may depend on your style and how comfortable you feel writing on the iPhone screen with your finger; however the more you use it, the better it will become as the software will adapt to your patterns. In addition, you can use simple finger gestures to select text, cut, copy, paste, insert special characters such as space and return, invoke the spell checker for the selected word, correct recognized text, and more.
WritePad is a FREE application developed to a) provide you with early access to the new input method; and to b) obtain your feedback about this new input method before it is included with PhatNotes and possibly other applications. If you have downloaded and used this application, please feel free to send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
