Our favorite note-taking app for Android, Evernote, received a massive update today. Handwriting has arrived. The ability to take handwritten notes has long been a much requested feature for the client. “When we started working on a way to bring digital handwriting to Evernote for Android, we knew that our approach needed to extend the current Evernote experience rather than simply provide an alternate input method,” Evernote’s Andrew Sinkov wrote in a blog post today. “It took us a long to time to figure out exactly how to make this work.”
Inside any note, you can tap the pen icon to start writing freely. If you need more room, click on the plus symbol at the bottom of the screen. Also, you can choose different colors and levels of thickness for your script, and just tap on the checkmark to immediately return to typing, add an attachment, record audio, or drop an image into the note, all in one place.
