WritePad is a text editor for iPhone that utilizes advanced handwriting recognition input for the English language as well as iPhone keyboard for text entry, and includes spell checker, context analyzer, and standard editing operations such as copy, cut, paste, etc. WritePad’s primary handwriting recognition-based input method integrated with the text editor and developed specifically for iPhone and iPod Touch. It recognizes cursive, PRINT, and mixed handwriting styles.

To enter the text you can simply write with your finger or a stylus (such as AluPen by just|mobile) on the iPhone screen in either landscape or portrait mode employing your own handwriting style. It also allows easily switching between the handwriting recognition and the standard iPhone keyboard.

The Shorthand feature offers a quick and simple way to insert often-repeated text and performs standard editing commands by writing the Shorthand name and drawing a circle around it. You can add new or modify Shorthands using the Shorthand Editor.

With WritePad you can create text documents and store them on your iPhone. The built-in HTTP server allows you to exchange files between iPhone devices connected to the same WiFi network, or to upload files onto the desktop PC using the Internet browser. You can also send emails directly from WritePad and use copy/paste to transfer text between WritePad and other applications. In addition, you can use the built-in interface to the Bing Translator to convert your documents to other languages.

Fix renaming bug!

This app is a bit quirky, as it uses non-standard interfaces for autocorrection and selecting text. However, now that I'm used to these quirks, I find it superior for writing documents of significant length. I also like the web interface for transferring documents without entrusting my personal files to a cloud service.

The handwriting recognition works pretty well, but I use the keyboard mode because it's faster for me.

My only complaint is that since the recent update, I can no longer rename my files (the blue arrow does not appear like the User's Guide says it should, on the iPhone version at least). This is especially annoying since the new version doesn't give you a chance to override the default name before creating the file in the first place. Please fix this!
