various lab groups to deliver impressive yet unsung applications like
Writing Pad is a replacement notepad application which does away with
the iPhone's standard soft keyboard and replaces it with a completely
new concept in text entry. The new keyboard is used by sliding your
finger from letter to letter and lifting your finger at the end of
each word. Sounds complex? Believe it or not it's unbelievably simple
and ridiculously quick to use. Helped by a comprehensive dictionary of
words and a simple method of adding your own, Writing Pad will soon
have you bashing, sorry sliding, out notes you wouldn't even dream of
attempting on another handheld.
After about half an hour of using Writing Pad I have no doubts that
you'll be questioning why anybody would use any other input method on
a small device. I'm even sure that after a short period of practice
you'll find it faster than a desktop keyboard.
Other than the new input method there's a reasonably capable notepad
which can convert your notes into the body of an email ready for
sending. Its not quite cut and paste but its a usable alternative.
In summary then, a free application which should be on every single
iPhone out there.
