New App Lets iPad Owners Transcribe Handwriting

Beats typing on your iPad.


Further reducing the need for an actual PC ever again, accessories maker Targus and app developer iDevices have teamed up to produce iNotebook, a handwriting-recognition app and stylus that wireless transfers written notes onto the iPad.

The process requires users to write their notes with the stylus onto a 9.5-in x 7.5-inch notepad to be placed atop the iPad. Then the app gets to work, doing the transcription.

Exorbitantly priced at $149, most folks will be forced to skip this iteration. Here’s hoping that by the next go, they’ll have figured out how to bring the cost down and eliminate the notepad.
