Re: ipad3 is coming

Thanks for the links

I'm really interested in getting one of these. Does the iPad3 come with a stylus writing functionality? I had a look at their promo video, but it didn't mention it. Surely it's possible with an app of some kind??

I have to get my piles of reminder notes and lists in order somehow

Re: ipad3 is coming

Hi there,

No it doesn't. There is this app (7notes) that i was going to have a look at, but I don't have it yet:

You can however use the new iPad as a scanner...

Re: ipad3 is coming

Typing still beats writing as the recognition tends to not be that good, especially if you have a crappy handwriting like me, thus the system will keep on giving you alternatives for what you actually want to write, if it even recognizes your scribbles. This thus means that you are correcting or selecting the right word all the time instead of actually taking the notes you wanted to take.

As such, a lot of folks use the OneNote approach: You scribble and hope that you can read your own handwriting afterwards. You then add a piece of text as a label which can be indexed by the system, date etc are automatically recorded as another form of index. OneNote can then afterwards apply recognition of what you wrote if wanted, thus not in-line, and thus at a time that you likely have time to correct things it does not recognize instead of in the middle of a meeting where you are busy trying to write down what you need to.


I personally thus type a lot, even on silly ipads for taking notes, or I write it up on paper and then transcribe it to a computer form manually later by typing it again.
