When Your Finger Becomes a Pen

If you prefer writing to typing, our app can simulate a real paper for you. 

Simply tap the Pen icon, select the colour and start writing. Handwritten notes will appear on a page - small enough to fit as much information on a page as you want!

Erase the handwritten notes with Eraser tool. 

    NOTE: User Eraser in handwriting area under the page.

Change the size of the page handwriting area by dragging the lower right corner to get more space to write in.
