Writepad: Handwriting Optimised For Stylus – Beta Testers Required
Tablet owners looking for a smooth writing experience should check out XDA forum member transceiver‘s Writepad application for Android tablets.
Originally written for the Asus EeePad Transformer running Android 3.2, the dev is interested to find out how it works on other tablets and is looking for beta testers.
Current features include –
- No lag and no jitter between the stylus movement and the screen response.
- Smart palm detection – only records the writing from your stylus (right handed only for now).
- Export page and notebook – share the page as a PNG file, or export the whole thing as a ZIP file to your Dropbox or Gmail accout.
- Paper types – comes with four familiar paper types.
- Stylus calibration – instead of drawing where the stylus touches the screen, it will draw where you ‘think’ the stylus tip is, which is good for thicker tip styluses.

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
