Handwriting Notes

You’d think with a touch screen that the iPad could recognize your handwriting instead of making you type on an on-screen keyboard. The WritePad app enables you to take notes by typing or by using the touch screen to write with your finger.

1. Find WritePad in the App Store. Install it and launch it.

4. Tap and drag around the screen using the tip of your finger like a pen or pencil. Start in the upper-left corner. You can use printed letters, cursive, or a mixture.

5. Stop writing and wait for the text to process. When it does, the text appears at the cursor location.

6. Tap the buttons at the top-right corner to switch between Reading mode, Writing mode, and Keyboard mode.
