PhatWares WritePad updated to improve handwriting recognition for any Android app
New WritePad update has been optimized for latest version of Android OS and features improved handwriting recognition engine.
Spokane, WA January 22, 2013 - PhatWare Corporation has updated the WritePad for Android application, vastly improving text input in the user's own handwriting with a stylus or even a finger.
WritePad's input method for Android OS aims to replace the on-screen keyboard with PhatWare's proven handwriting recognition technology and can be used for text input in any Android application. The latest version of WritePad has been optimized for the best performance on a variety of Android tables and phones, including Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy Tab, HTC Inspire, and others. It is especially useful on pen-enabled tablets, such as Samsung Galaxy Note.
WritePad features 4th generation handwriting recognition technology which supports practically any handwriting style, including cursive (script), print, and mixed in eleven languages including English, Dutch, Danish, French, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish, and Spanish languages. The software analyzes pen strokes written in the designated WritePad area, then converts those pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to the target application.
While many handwriting recognition tools for smartphones and tablets leave users frustrated with the apps inability to correctly interpret their handwriting, WritePads state-of-the-art handwriting recognition software uses a statistical analyzer to adapt and learn the user's style of writing.
WritePad offers four basic recognition modes: cursive/mixed or print for general text entry; Numeric for entering numbers and phone numbers; and Internet for entering email addresses and URLs. The app also offers a built-in calculator, enabling users to write simple equations such as "22.3+15.66=" and WritePad will calculate the result.
