The two major things I wish it did was zoom in on pictures. I often times insert screen shots from PowerPoint or online and when I go back to review my notes I am always trying to use two fingers to zoom in on the picture which is just a feature the app does not do. I also wish it allowed me to arrange my notes in whatever order I want.
LinkedIn0 One of my friends has just become a head teacher for the first time and she asked me if there were any decent handwriting recognition apps on the iPad which would enable her to turn her handwriting into text to save typing up notes after her meetings. I thought carefully about this and nothing sprung to mind, certainly nothing which would beat the performance of her Galaxy Note and S-pen.
Here they are, in order of greatness. Finally, for this experiment I kept all of the apps vanilla in terms of options except to turn on left handers mode when present and I used an iPad Air and the recently reviewed Precision Touch Dart active stylus.
The MyScript apps offer very solid recognition and you can download them in advance if you want to test what the recognition engine is like in Notes Plus. The only slight disadvantage is because it is a third party app, you have to buy it as an in-app purchase in Notes Plus.

The accuracy of the recognition engine seemed less accurate than Notes Plus, but this may be due to the issues with my hand position in the app.
I think a right hander would not have these issues, resulting in pretty solid text recognition. This works well, although you have to come out of the pen option to do this, unlike Notes Plus where you can just circle with the pen tool.
This app is probably as close to the Samsung Note solution as the iPad has in that it converts to test on the fly. WritePad Pro just converts as you go which is a really handy, time saving feature.
Round up I must give all of these developers credit for implementing handwriting recognition in their apps, and often these apps are extremely personalized in that I might not get on with something that Joe Bloggs next to me might love.
However, currently the crown for best handwriting recognition app must go to Notes Plus in my opinion.
All three developers provided me with a promo code for each app, although I bought the handwriting recognition add on in Notes Plus with my own cash.
