WritePad 5 adds Evernote sync


PhatWare has released an update to WritePad, its handwriting-recognition application for iOS adding support for synchronization with Evernote and Google Docs sharing. WritePad allows users to enter text on their device using cursive, print or mixed handwriting styles for taking notes, sending e-mail, composing Twitter and Facebook updates and sending SMS messages. Users can exchange files between their device and desktop computer over Wi-Fi or synchronize them via the cloud. In addition to improved Dropbox synchronization, WritePad users now have the option of synchronizing their notes with the popular Evernote online service instead. Users can also now upload WritePad documents to Google Docs for storage or sharing. The update also makes several improvements to the built-in handwriting recognition engine allowing users to disable unused letter shapes to improve the learning process. WritePad for iPhone is available from the App Store for $4.
