About this app

HandWrite Pro is a note-taking app for your finger or stylus, but it is also an advanced vector-based drawing app.

Easily markup PDFs to fill out forms, edit or grade papers and sign documents with the PDF import.

You can either use your fingertips, an active pen (e.g. the stylus from the Samsung Galaxy Note series) or a passive pen which works with any touch device.

The vector graphics engine allows you to zoom in without pixelation or losing quality. If you use a stylus you can set the "stylus only" option so that your wrist won't accidentally draw lines. The app also allows you to export your work for refinement on a PC later.

Write or draw during lectures and meetings. Export to PDF afterwards to share your work.

The simple and intuitive user interface makes writing or drawing as easy as on paper. Just give it a try. Most of the features are available for free!

Free Features:
• Draw with an active Stylus (e.g. Samsung Note S-Pen) for pressure sensitivity**
• BETA-Support for the Scriba pen (www.getscriba.com)
• Simulate variable line width with your finger or a passive pen using the "speed pen" option
• Vector graphics engine, lossless zoom
• Copy & Paste
• PDF export
• JPG & PNG export
• Export directly to Evernote

Overall, I'm having a lot of fun with it. It took me a minute to figure out how to change the title, but I eventually found it. :) Edit: When I try to paste long text the ok button goes under my keyboard and I cannot retrieve it even when I hide the keyboard. Also, when inputting text, I think cancelling the text input when you click on the dark grey background is a mistake. It's too easy to lose your text. Default should be to keep it; you can always delete. Doc templates would be genius.

I LOVE the idea of this app. It would be fantastic if all of the features worked well. Problems: The object-based eraser is terrible, erases multiple objects not just one. My app crashes when I try to insert images. I would like to see the selection tool improved, allow for smaller selections and object based selection. A lasso/freehand selection mode would be fantastic also. I would use this app, but the poor eraser, image crashing, bad selection took ruin the experience for me.

This app, has great potential. The writing experience is excellent. Pen and paper like. smooth and clear. The UI is easy. It could use some improvements in these areas, Pen takes 3 Taps to toggle, and eraser too. Needs to be able to move pages from one notebook to another. Can export to Evernote but better would be Synchronization. I give 5 Stars because it is still in developement and active. Best writing experience with S- pen in my opinion.
