About WritePad

WritePad 7.5 is designed to deliver considerably faster note-taking, by offering multiple suggestions for words and phrases as notes are taken in the user's own handwriting. As a user writes anywhere on the screen or in a designated area, alternative recognition results and word completions are presented in a scrollable suggestion bar next to the text, allowing a user to select an alternative result if the initial translation of the handwriting is incorrect.

To further speed-up and simplify the process of taking notes on the iPad, spell-checker suggestions are presented to a user in real-time when the text cursor is positioned on a misspelled word. WritePad also has advanced shorthand feature, which enable users to insert often used sentences or perform text editing by simply writing a command name and drawing a circle around it.

For those who must collaborate with people in other countries, WritePad offers superior integration with an online language translator. Notes can be written in English, for example, which can be automatically converted to Spanish, or fifteen other common languages. Documents can be synchronized with Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, iCloud, and Microsoft OneDrive, as well as sent via email, SMS, tweeted, posted on Facebook, printed, and exported as PDF.

With WritePad, users can:

  • Create and edit text documents while using the advanced handwriting recognition engine or the iPad keyboard for text entry
  • Improve handwriting recognition quality with WritePad's Statistical Analyzer, which learns and adapts to the user's handwriting style
  • Email, Tweet, print, and post Facebook updates directly from WritePad
  • Synchronize WritePad documents with Google Drive, iCloud, Dropbox, Evernote, Box, Microsoft OneDrive, and iTunes
WritePad Availability and Pricing

WritePad 7.5 is priced at $4.99 and available now in the iTunes App Store. For more information about the WritePad product line, please visit PhatWare's website at
