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.

    It has taken me at least six months and considerable frustration to master this technology (including frequent time-outs when I swapped back to things like the Samsung keyboard or Graffiti Pro) but perseverance has paid off. I now feel at least as comfortable writing on my Samsung Note 10.1 running this software as on my desktop and keyboard.

    Inaccurate recognition program. Writing as if you were writing on paper, this is not. If they let people try before buying, they would get fewer angry reviews. Not only do you lose money, you also lose time learning this.

    Firstly 15 minutes isn't long enough to test this apps because it takes a little setting up and by then its too late for a refund. The handwriting recognition isn't good enough and isn't fast enough, especially if you compare it to a hybrid laptop, MS Surface or iPad and I was testing it on a Nexus 7 2nd (2013). This is a real shame because I had high hopes for this application. At the moment it

    I was wondering how it got 3 stars but I may have an idea. People at the company are probably writing in fake reviews. I went by the video to make my buying decision which they knew they had to make look fantastic. Seeing so many of the other reviewers write about the same issues I had so I know it isn't my fault. Going to try Mazec next seeing as how many on here like that better. Oh well, $

    I don't know why this app has gotten so many bad reviews . It is the best I tried or found so far. Its not better the Samsung recognition on my S3. But it is good enough for my Asus tablet .

    The lack of a vertical pipe | instead of this ¦ and a quotation mark key that gives " instead of apostrophes ' would be nice. The apostrophe key produces ' as expected, for reference.
