Outstanding Handwriting Recognition While the 7notes app itself is just a good simple notebook, the mazec2 handwriting recognition is best-of-breed. It's easily my favourite way to enter text on a phone screen. If you tried mazec before and found it had faults, try it again. Mistakes in the last version have been rectified, and it seems now to combine the best features of all the earlier incarnations. The interface has been greatly improved too. It's hard to imagine how it could get better than this.
Super remarkable! I'm certain I have never been so impressed with an app before! It is remarkable that this app is capable of accurately interpreting my handwriting even though I myself have difficulty doing so. It's the best of both worlds: I can enjoy the ease and familiarity of writing without having to interpret-or recall-what the HELL I wrote.
Great App but where is the menu I have used this app on an iphone and I was pleased it is available for an Android. It just works. But where oh where is the menu button in the edit screen? I have dropped a star because the help file doesn't tell me how to open the menu options. Not that I can see anyhow. I have it installed on a Samsung S5. OK I have it now. You need to hold down the menu button on the phone. I am an inexperienced Android user. The instructions are not clear for this.
Why would you create a keyboard with no shift key? Took off one star for not having a shift key (it has a caps-lock instead), and one for no spacebar. Also took off one star for not integrating with Evernote, Dropbox, Box, Drive, etc. Having an "Export" function is NOT integration. . Update: Would love to have this for ocr, but the awful keyboard makes it not worth the effort. Should fix keyboard, or make it easy to switch to standard Android keyboard.
The flow of writing by hand... With my phone, 7notes, and a stylus (personal preference) I'm always ready to write. No more worries about losing (or transcribing) napkins, receipts, and other crumpled pieces of paper. My notes are saved in 7 notes. ♡ When my scribbles are too sloppy for fast OCR I just export to PDF, open in Gimp, and add a text layer. Easy!
Does a good job. Needs number integration. I used to use ''graffiti'' on my palm PDA. This seems to have a more natural recognition. Does not require special strokes like graffiti. Will recognize both cursive and print 90% for me. One con. I have to switch to keyboard to input numbers, which I frequently do during note taking. A ''one tap'' option for switching to number recognition or an area dedicated to numbers only would give this app 5 stars from me.
