Use Your Handwriting is an app that lets you use your finger as a virtual pencil, handy for people who need to jot down notes on their iOS and are having trouble using a popup keyboard. Created by Gee Whiz Stuff, it comes with tutorials so you can learn how the app works.
The Options in the Preferences menu let you change many settings, and you should change it if you’re left handed. This is also where you can modify the finger writing with various writing styles. There are half a dozen themes available and you can modify them very easily.
All you need to do is tap a color or title and you will find all the notes in the theme. Click the + button and start writing. You can use the undo button, left and right arrows and an eraser to help you write. After you’re done, well, tap Done. You can then go to the Notes list you made, add stars, dim them or add check marks. Use Your Handwriting also makes it easy to do things like delete and organize your notes.
The app a nice alternative to the usual popup keyboard that you use on iOS devices. It runs on both the iPhone and iPad but it naturally works better on the bigger screen of the iPad.
Bottom line: if you are uncomfortable with the keyboard, give Use Your Handwriting a try. There really aren’t many free apps like this one, and it is perfect if you always use your iOS to take notes.
