Writepad: Handwriting Optimised For Stylus – Beta Testers Required

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.
For more information and to download the apk and provide feedback, head on over to the application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
