PhatWare Brings PhatPad Brainstorming, Note-Taking and Collaboration App to Android

PhatPad allows users to draw pictures and type or scribble notes with powerful handwriting recognition and instantly share work with colleagues.

Spokane, WA – February 7, 2012 - PhatWare today announces the launch of PhatPad for Android, a note-taking and collaboration app featuring PhatWare’s proven handwriting recognition technology. PhatPad, which has already gained a significant following among iPad users, now will turn an 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, WiFi, and Dropbox.

PhatPad's key features include:

  • Smooth-flowing digital ink technology, which lets iPad 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 to create media-rich content;
  • A powerful handwriting recognition engine, which automatically converts handwritten notes into text;
  • Voice notes - record, play, and use in presentation mode;
  • Document sharing using Dropbox synchronization, PDF, WiFi, and email;
  • 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," - said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare Corp. "PhatPad’s handwriting recognition engine allows users to convert previously recorded handwritten notes into digital text, and edit text using either the handwriting input panel or the keyboard."

With a version of PhatPad also available on iPad devices, PhatPad documents can be shared between iOS and Android platforms. PhatPad for Android is also compatible with older PhatPad for Windows file format (.pmi) allowing to open legacy documents.

PhatPad Availability and Pricing

PhatPad for Android is available in the Google Market Store and other PhatWare authorized resellers for the special introductory price of only $4.99 (regular price is $7.99). A free 24 hours trial version of PhatPad is also available and can be downloaded from PhatWare web site. For more information about PhatPad, visit PhatWare’s web site at
