Spokane, WA - April 14, 2014 - PhatWare Corp. announces it has renamed its new WritePro word processing app for iPhone and iPad as WritePad Pro. PhatWare has decided to change the app name to leverages the strong brand awareness and foundational technology of PhatWare's popular WritePad app and handwriting recognition SDK.

WritePad Pro, which builds upon WritePad's powerful handwriting recognition technology, adds rich text editing which can be combined with images, custom drawings, and text. The app also integrates with various system resources such as email, contacts, maps, iCloud, social networks, and others.
