What iPad apps are available that support handwriting recognition?

Are there any good iPad apps for taking notes that can recognize handwriting?


You might like to checkout Writepad - it sounds like it does pretty much everything you are asking. I've used it before, and found it worked pretty well. It's only $4.99US at the moment as well, so maybe a good time to give it a go.

I also use Plecodict which is an English-Chinese dictionary, which has handwriting recognition for learning new characters (and an optical recognition mode as well) - just mentioning it because you didn't specify a certain language.

Good luck.

  • Interestingly, the Chinese handwriting keyboard option in IOS also recognizes latin letters. – WGroleau Jun 19 '19 at 20:29

WritePad is definitely a good option. PhatPad, from the same publisher (Phatware), also does it, along with standard keyboard input and some drawing capability.
