PhatPad, a popular note-taking and collaboration program for the iPad, recently got updated. Adding Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish languages to supported language mix, PhatWare also has added optimizations to take full advantage of the high-resolution Retina Display.
PhatPad’s key features include:
· Smooth-flowing digital ink technology, which lets iPad users scribble notes as if they are writing on real paper;
· The ability to combine drawing, handwritten text, images, and digital text on the same document page to create media-rich content;
· A powerful multilingual handwriting recognition engine, which automatically converts handwritten notes into text;
· Voice notes – record, play, and use in presentation mode;
· An advanced Presentation mode, which supports a VGA monitor and allows recording and playing presentations by synchronizing document pages and voice;
· PhatPad Document sharing using Dropbox synchronization, Google Docs and Evernote upload, direct access via WiFi or iTunes, and email;
· Printing to a printer on wireless network via AirPrint.
The beauty of PhatPad as a note-taking, collaboration and brainstorming tool, is that it allows users to draw pictures, jot notes, or put a mixture of pictures, drawings, handwritten and typed text on a virtual scratch pad. The included handwriting recognition engine allows PhatPad users to convert previously recorded handwritten notes into digital text, and edit text using either the handwriting input panel or the keyboard.
PhatPad 2.1 is available in the iTunes App Store at a reduced price of only $4.99. The price includes handwriting recognition in a language of the user’s choice. Support for additional languages can be purchased in-app for just $2.99 per language. The US English Medical dictionary is also available for PhatPad for $4.99.
