Yesterday, PhatWare Corporation announced the immediate availability of a Retina-optimized version of its PhatPad note-taking and collaboration app for iPad. The new version of PhatPad not only leverages the high-resolution screen of the new iPad, but also offers better handwriting recognition quality and support for four new languages, including Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish. This version brings the total number of languages it supports to eleven.
More than just a note-taking app, PhatPad turns an iPad into an advanced brainstorming tool by enabling users to draw, write, and type on the iPad, then instantly share ideas via email, WiFi sync, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Docs, or in PhatPad’s presentation mode.
The beauty of PhatPad as a note-taking, collaboration and brainstorming tool, is that it allows users to draw pictures, jot notes, or put a mixture of pictures, drawings, handwritten and typed text on a virtual scratch pad. The included handwriting recognition engine allows PhatPad users to convert previously recorded handwritten notes into digital text, and edit text using either the handwriting input panel or the keyboard.
Brainstorming and collaborating with team members is simple using PhatPad’s Presentation mode, which allows users to create quick presentations and display them on the iPad screen and external monitor.
PhatPad Availability and Pricing:
PhatPad 2.1 is available in the iTunes App Store at a reduced price of only $4.99. The price includes handwriting recognition in a language of the user’s choice. Support for additional languages can be purchased in-app for just $2.99 per language. The US English Medical dictionary is also available for PhatPad for $4.99.
