Evernote adds handwriting recognition to Android app

The Evernote experience gets even better today as the Android app adds in handwriting functionality. As part of the latest update, users can jot down their notes using a finger or stylus. Notes can employ combinations of audio, handwriting, annotations, images, and more. Perfect for schools, lectures, work meetings, church, and other situations where you can write faster than typing.

Also included in the software update:

  • Fluid handwriting experience – move easily from writing to typing to photos and back within a single note
  • Tap to write – whenever you’re in a note, tap the pen icon to start writing
  • More editing options – added text highlighting and more powerful editing features
  • Faster Camera – 2x faster than before
