    Hi guys,
    I would like to know if there is some kind of handwriting app - also one that does not recognise your handwriting and turn it into text. I just want to be able to scribble my notes on my android tablet with a stylus, instead of using paper.
    Also, if I were to use a stylus, my hand will still get in the way, amirite? So when my hand brushes against the screen (inevitable given than my hand rests on the surface I am writing on) it will be registered on the screen. Is there any writing app that would avoid this problem?
    Cheers.

    There are a few apps, like Droid Notes that does that.

    However, depending on your device, styluses dont work on Androids. Most Androids now use capacitive screens which do not respond to styluses. Only some cheap china tablets still use resistive screens that work with stylus. You need to buy a capacitive pen, like the one the iPad uses.

    Have a look at 'Handrite' (yes, without a 'w' :) )

    Have you found your handwriting app?

    In the meantime I use 'Genial Writing' instead of 'Handrite'.
    Same genial handwriting idea but better user interface :)
