WritePad's is a new input method for Android OS which aims to replace the on-screen keyboard with PhatWare's proven multilingual handwriting recognition technology and can be used for text input in any Android application. WritePad supports most Android Smartphones and Tablets and is especially useful on pen-enabled Android Tablets, such as Samsung Galaxy Note, HTC Jetstream and others.

WritePad features 4th generation handwriting recognition technology which supports practically any handwriting style, including cursive (script), print, and mixed. 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 app’s inability to correctly interpret their handwriting, WritePad’s state-of-the-art handwriting recognition software will adapt and learn the user’s style of writing.

Key WritePad features:

- Advanced multilingual handwriting recognition engine supports 11 languages, including Danish, Dutch, English (UK and US), Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal), Swedish, and Spanish.
- Integration with any application allowing text input, such as email, SMS, notes, word processing, and others.
- Statistical analyzer, which improves overall handwriting recognition quality by addressing common recognition errors. If this feature is enabled, WritePad will learn the user’s own handwriting style.
- Customizable auto-corrector, which automatically fixes common spelling and recognition errors.
- Editable user dictionary to improve recognition of custom words and names not included in the main dictionary.
- Built-in full keyboard with autocomplete; if needed, users can switch between keyboard and handwriting with a single touch of a button.
- 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.
- Built-in calculator, enabling users to write simple equations such as "22.3+15.66=" and WritePad will calculate the result.
- Letter shape selector allows users to further improve recognition quality by disabling unused letter shapes.

Recently changed in this version

WritePad 4 was designed to deliver considerably faster note-taking by offering multiple suggestions for words or phrases as notes are input in the user’s own handwriting. As a user writes, alternative recognition results and completion of words 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 was incorrect.

    For sure, there is a chance for many people to misunderstand this great software. at first look. I don't blame those who gave -ve comment here. I too felt like that at first. After all the customization, it turned out to be the best, suited to my all needs and style, except two things. 1) My great language, one of the oldest languages of Asia, spoken by 10 crores of people is not included in the l

    Came here looking to replace Graffiti which no longer works on the new higher res screens. This pretty much always fails. I've been at it for a week and wasted 10 bucks looking for a handwriting recognition app which at that price point must work, right ? wrong. This really wastes huge amounts of my time trying to correct what is comes up with. Writing larger helps with its accuracy but means

    It doesn't learn your hand writing like it claims constantly having to rewrite everything....and now it won't even work. Wish i could just get a refund.

    What a day ! Reviewers were right about the need to get settings right. Dang thing was on separate word only! Much better when script is enabled. Still a little funky. Getting better over time. Seems to handle mixed mode fairly well. You do need a decent processor to keep up with script. My note 1 barely holds on which is typical; for many apps clogging my little processor. Most noticeable when
