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....
PhatPad, a fairly robust note taking and presentation type app is on sale for a few more days for only $.99. It is usually $7.99. I confess it is not my go to note taking app, but I do use it if I want to write and convert my handwriting to typed text. I still wish that I could write anywhere on the screen and not have to confine myself to the prescribed box, but that is a minor detail when I basically have gotten what I want on my iPad.
For less than a buck, it is a no brainer. I paid full price months ago.
Here is a link to a tutorial to see it in action or simply watch it below.
