PhatWare Launches PhatPad for Android Public Beta Program

Android users invited to join PhatPad beta program to help improve new brainstorming, note-taking and collaboration on Android devices.

Spokane, WA, November 23, 2011 - PhatWare is inviting Android users to join their PhatPad for Android public beta program aimed at improving brainstorming, note-taking and collaboration on Android devices.

PhatPad is a note-taking and collaboration app featuring PhatWare’s proven handwriting recognition technology. More than just a note-taking app, PhatPad turns practically any Android Tablet or Smartphone into an advanced brainstorming tool by enabling users to draw, write, and type on the Android device, then instantly share ideas via email or sync their documents with Dropbox.

PhatPad's key features include:

  • Smooth-flowing digital ink technology which lets Android Tablet users scribble notes as if they are writing on real paper.
  • The ability to combine drawing, handwritten text, images, and digital text on the same document page as well as voice notes to create media-rich content.
  • A powerful handwriting recognition engine which automatically converts handwritten notes into text.
  • A desktop synchronization via Dropbox.
  • File sharing via email and PDF exporty.
  • Scroll, Zoom and variable page size.

The beauty of PhatPad as a note-taking, collaboration and brainstorming tool is that it allows users to draw pictures, jot notes, or put a mixture of pictures, drawings, handwritten and typed text on a virtual scratch pad. The included handwriting recognition engine allows PhatPad users to convert previously recorded handwritten notes into digital text, and edit text using either the handwriting input panel or the keyboard. PhatPad documents can be synchronized with the Dropbox, emailed, or exported to PDF.

PhatPad application is also available on iPad devices, allowing sharing of PhatPad documents between iOS and Android platforms.

The beta software is available immediately to consumers for beta testing, and PhatWare welcomes user participation and feedback. For more information and to participate in the PhatPad for Android beta program, please visit PhatWare’s web site at www.phatware.com/phatpadbeta.
