PhatWare Updates PhatPad for iPad, Adds Twitter Support

The new version of PhatPad features integration with Twitter allowing users to tweet any page of the PhatPad document as a picture, and for a limited time PhatPad is offered at a significantly reduced price.

Spokane, WA – July 30, 2012 - PhatWare has announced today the release of a new version of PhatPad for iPad, a note organizer and collaboration app featuring PhatWare's proven handwriting recognition technology. The new PhatPad includes the latest version of our vastly improved WritePad handwriting recognition technology, and features integration with Twitter, allowing users to tweet a PhatPad document as a picture.

Another new feature in PhatPad 2.3 allows users to export pages of PhatPad documents as pictures and store them in the iPad photo album for easy sharing. The PhatPad clipart gallery has been moved to the Cloud significantly reducing the application download time when upgrading. The Clipart gallery can be downloaded from the PhatWare server at any time; no registration or login is required. Users also can check for Clipart updates or remove the gallery from the iPad to free some storage space.

About PhatPad

More than just a note-taking app, PhatPad turns an iPad into an advanced brainstorming tool by enabling users to draw, write, and type on the iPad, then instantly share ideas via email, WiFi sync, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Docs, or in PhatPad's presentation mode.

PhatPad is highly regarded for its smooth-flowing digital ink technology, which lets iPad users scribble notes as if they are writing on real paper, but is best known for its powerful multilingual handwriting recognition engine – automatically converting handwritten notes into text. PhatPad is available in eleven languages, including English, German, French, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, and Spanish.

PhatPad's presentation mode makes brainstorming and collaborating with team members simple. Users can create quick presentations, and display them on the iPad screen, or an external monitor.
