handwriting input

In a release that was not surprising, way overdue, and certainly welcome, Google Play has released a handwriting application for its nearly 1.5 billion Play Store users today.

Like the credit card machine units in Wal-Mart, you can now input on screen text by simply writing with a finger. The same technology is similarly used for swipe based keyboards like SwiftKey. The application currently has support for 82 languages and we’re sure more are in development, especially for countries that are anticipated to get Android One. The application even works when you do emoji.

After I downloaded the software and gave the application a try, it’s working pretty much as it’s supposed to. So now if you need to sign anything online, you can now use the handwriting application in Google Play Store, and sign documents just as if you had a pen. If you are interested, the link is below.
