New update of the popular handwriting recognition-based text input method for Android Smartphones and Tablets features vastly improved handwriting recognition quality by offering real-time multiple suggestions for words or phrases as the user writes.
Spokane, WA - July 8, 2014 - PhatWare announces today the immediate availability of WritePad 4.1 for Android, enabling vastly improved text input in the user's own handwriting with a stylus or finger. WritePad, the most popular handwriting recognition app for Android Tables and Smartphones, was designed to deliver considerably faster note-taking by offering multiple suggestions for words and phrases. As a user writes, alternative recognition results and completion of words are dynamically presented in a scrollable suggestion bar, allowing users to enter text more quickly.
WritePad 4.1 includes newest version of the vastly improved PhatWare’s handwriting recognition engine and support for ARM, X86, and MIPS based Android devices. For more information about WritePad for Android, visit http://www.phatware.com/writepadandroid.
WritePad's input method for Android OS aims to replace the on-screen keyboard with PhatWare's proven handwriting recognition technology and can be used for text input in any Android application. WritePad has been optimized for the best performance on a variety of latest Android Tables and Smartphones, including Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Droid, and others. It is especially useful on pen-enabled tablets, such as Samsung Galaxy Note.
WritePad features 4th generation handwriting recognition technology, which supports practically any handwriting style, including cursive (script), print, and mixed. The software analyzes pen strokes written in the designated WritePad area, then converts those pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to the target application. While many handwriting recognition tools for smartphones and tablets leave users frustrated with the app’s inability to correctly interpret their handwriting, WritePad’s state-of-the-art handwriting recognition software will adapt and learn the user's style of writing as it is being used.
Key WritePad features include
Reliable handwriting recognition in English, Dutch, Danish, French, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish, and Spanish languages
Statistical analyzer, which improves overall handwriting recognition quality by addressing common recognition errors. If this feature is enabled, WritePad will learn the user's own handwriting style.
Integration with any application allowing text input, such as email, SMS, notes, word processing, and others.
Customizable auto-corrector, which automatically fixes common spelling and recognition errors.
Editable user dictionary to improve recognition of custom words and names not included in the main dictionary.
Built-in full keyboard with auto-complete; if needed, users can switch between keyboard and handwriting with the single touch of a button.
Built-in calculator, enabling users to write simple equations such as "22.3+15.66=" and WritePad will calculate the result.

WritePad 4.1 is available now and is sold through the Android Market, Amazon, Samsung App Store, and other authorized resellers and is priced at $9.99.
