    The other day while hunting s-pen apps I was checking out Papyrus android app because much as I like Lecture Note and S-note they both can get on my last nerve. I stumbled across what bills itself as a "stylus based wordprocessor". It's called Write by Stylus Labs... watched the video demo of Papyrus in Play Store then stumbled across a Stylus Write video... I was instantly smitten.

    website: http://styluslabs.com

    Here is that video:

    I think that shows how powerful a tool an active stylus could become.

    Best of all the app is FREE!

    Obviously this is based on a very brief interaction, maybe 30mins, so before the net nitpickers decend, lighten up. :p these things take time but I 'm hoping a few folks have tried it already & can add their take comparing to other options.

    I was leaning to switching to Papyrus but it just did not feel like a good fit for me. Know what I mean? Some apps just don't feel right to you. Write, however, appeals to me on some visceral level

    Found the twitter feed for Stylus Labs:

    The dev is quite responsive to questions and has chimed in over on threads @ XDA as well as email questions.

    I like this app a great deal. It's still "green", however, it is already easy to work with. For example the file format used for notes is a combo of SVG plus HTML (page layouts). The SVG is nifty as it leaves the notes in a quite portable format read on almost any device.

    'Photo Desk' is designed for the Note 8.0 and I like it better than the Gallery app.
    I also like the 'Write' app which is a word processor for handwriting.
    Both of these apps are free and without advertising.
