About this app

Write on your screen as with a pen on a paper!
PenReader, the multilanguage app to recognize handwriting, will convert any handwritten text into a print form of the highest accuracy within seconds.

_ _ _

PenReader as a handwriting recognition technology started in 1968. While you are writing with a finger tip on a touchscreen surface, PenReader analyzes coordinates of your finger movements and converts the data into print characters by performing tens of thousands of calculations per second. Ensuring the shortest possible delay and highest accuracy, PenReader is the top tool to convert a handwritten text into a print one.

PenReader offers powerful options:

• New! Try the easy input into your small screen device (e.g. a phone):
- ‘Letter-on-letter’ mode is specifically developed for small screens. You can input an entire word by drawing letters on top of each other. As a result, the characters are recognized as one word.
- ‘Write words by parts’ feature allows you to input a part of a word, then PenReader will guess a possible extension and offer options to continue.
• A quicker and more accurate recognition of words is put into practice owing to the improved engine capabilities for 38 languages: Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Czech, Polish, Hungarian, Slovenian, Slovak, Turkish, Croatian, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Portuguese, Swedish, Greek, Hebrew, Romanian, Albanian, Icelandic, Catalan, Bulgarian, Arabic, Danish, Georgian, Belorussian, Welsh, Esperanto, Kazakh, Maltese, Serbian, Ukrainian.
• Save your own words in the User dictionary: any word which has been input by you and has not been found in the dictionary will be automatically added to the User dictionary after you tap this word in the hint field. This field, at the bottom of the screen, offers spelling options.
• New! Use the updated modes ‘Letter-by-letter’, ‘Cursive’, ‘Separate’, ‘Smart’ to increase the recognition accuracy.
• Spelling check helps avoid mistakes (words will be checked with the dictionary).
• Analysis of adjacent characters improves input accuracy in ‘Cursive’ and ‘Separate’ modes.
• Special symbols ($, @, &, etc.) are displayed on a screen keyboard from now on. Besides the main symbol, other symbols are accessible with a long tap.
• Have a need for arithmetic operations? Turn on ‘Calculator’ mode and write down the operations you need (*, -, +). When ‘=’ has been input, you will see the result in the input field.
• The settings are displayed in thematic groups, new descriptions below the titles and new parameters have been added.
• If you bought PenReader’s previous version for Android, then a new one will be available free for you! Use «I bought PenReader 1.x» to restore your purchase quickly.
• PenReader requires minimal storage capacity on your device and no additional languages to be downloaded.
• Integration with other apps: if you need to input a password, e-mail, text, numbers, etc. then PenReader switches temporarily into the ‘Separate’ mode and turns off spelling to make character input as easy as possible.
