I figured how to enable the Google Handwrite feature from Safari (Browse to and enable handwrite), but cant seem to find a way to do the same in the Google Search App for iOS.

Anybody been able to get around this?

I'm not completely sure, but I think that's just a feature of Google's mobile site. I don't know that there's a way to enable it in the Google Search App. Perhaps they will add this feature down the road. I'll edit my answer if I find it is possible.

No prob. I was wondering this same thing a few weeks ago lol. Their handwriting rec works well. I wish there was a (free) note-taking app that worked this well lol – Thomas Jan 21 '13 at 15:35
