Myscript Stylus Handwriting Recognition On iOS

Given that Apple invented the concept of handwriting recognition on mobile devices with the, oh-so-far ahead of its time, Newton it is somewhat galling that the platform has lacked a handwriting option for data input.

However, the arrival of iOS 8 opened up the input panel for replacement by third-parties and, as a result, iOS users have gained a great deal of flexibility when it comes to input.

The good news for scrawlers like me is the availability of a cursive handwriting tool called MyScript Stylus.

In terms of accuracy and speed this is handwriting recognition at its best. The engine keeps up with my input no matter how fast or untidy my writing gets. It handles punctuation well and supports gestures for deleting errors, adding or removing spaces and entering carriage returns. Just write your text along the line and when you reach the end of the line wait a second or so for the text to shuffle over and make room for more.

If you are inclined to write on your devices - especially if you have an iPad. then I can highly recommend this app.
