Mountain View, CA, September 22, 2010 - PhatWare announces today the new version of the popular note taking and handwriting recognition software for iPads and iPhones - WritePad 4.3. The new version features improved Twitter client with search, full synchronization of WritePad documents with Dropbox, seven color themes, ability to obtain the current location address and contact information, and a superior handwriting recognition engine.

  • Email, Tweet, or Synchronize WritePad documents.
  • Translate documents to 13 supported languages using Bing Translator.
