I Can't Help It, I Still Miss My Newton

As much as I love my iPad and iPhone, I missed being able to simply write on my iDevice and have it magically turned into typed text.
With the rollout of Siri, we will can now just talk to our iPhone and have it type text....something I might add was temporarily available back in 1997 on my Newton. Yes that's right, Dragon Software, the brains behind Siri, made voice recognition software for Newton, but was quickly squashed by Apple, for some reason. But I digress....



Review: Phatpad and 7Notes HD

Note taking apps have gotten to be a dime a dozen these days.  That may sound a little strange to some but I’m country and proud to be.  The point I am trying to make is the app store has thousands of apps.  That can be a little overwhelming for some people.  So what I enjoy doing is writing about some of the applications I have used and think others would enjoy using.  I have recently written several articles pertaining to this subject but with the number of applications growing daily it takes some researching and perseverance to find what’s good.

I recently wrote a post about PhatPad and how it left me starry eyed for my Newton and it's handwriting recognition. Well I see now that they have cut their price in half for this weekend. So if you are quick on your feet, you can download it for $2.99 instead of $4.99. Hurry, bargains aren't forever.



The Newton's Back.....Well,Sort Of.

My heart went a'racing when I saw PhatWare release PhatPad ($4.99) for the iPad. The video shows how you can write on your iPad and have it recognize and transpose it into typed text.....just like my beloved Newton did.
