Finally - Note to Text LIVE
After using many of the current note flagship apps, none of them had the simple, live, note-to-text interface I needed. Pen gesture commands are intuitive and simply brilliant. Well done.
Under ideal conditions, this app will recognize handwriting if the input is unnaturally large. It is not a keyboard for any app as advertised. It is fussy about conditions under which it will work. It is inaccurate.
In short, it was a terrible waste of money and I regretted the purchase (which Apple refused to refund) after an hour of time wasted trying to use it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
