iOS App offers Handwriting Recognition

Penquills (formerly PhatWare Corporation) has launched an iOS application that provides word processing, note-taking, and document management including handwriting recognition technology.

The app allows users to take notes by hand, and these notes are converted into digital text with Penquills's handwriting recognition software. Write emails in Gmail and text messages by hand. Once the app has been downloaded, users can write in their own handwriting and have it converted to text in any iOS app that allows text input.

Penquills's handwriting recognition technology has a spell-checker with its own custom dictionary, a context analyser, auto-corrector, and a Shorthand feature that fills-in frequently used words and phrases.

Penquills is now optimized for iOS 11 and 12 and includes a custom keyboard that offers handwriting recognition input in any iPad and iPhone app. A "today" screen extension allowing quick access to recent documents, and improved iCloud integration for easy document sharing between devices.

Penquills, which builds upon the original WritePad app, adds rich text editing which can be combined with images, custom drawings, and text. The app integrates with various system resources including email, contacts, maps, iCloud, social networks, and more.

Penquills creates HTML and PDF documents and can open text, Microsoft Word, RTF, HTML and text files for editing. The app offers superior integration with online language translators to support collaboration with users across the world.

Penquills offers advanced shorthand features for efficiency, which enables users to format text using written commands. Users can scribble shorthand commands to change the font, paragraph, and formatting in addition to inserting user-defined text blocks, invoking translators, maps and other system resources. To enable collaboration, Penquills HTML documents can be synchronized with Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, iCloud, and Microsoft OneDrive.
