Evernote for Android to receive support for handwriting input

Evernote for Android to receive support for handwriting input
Two days ago, we informed you that Evernote has upgraded all of its servers with a new sync engine, which is said to greatly increase the overall sync speed of the service. The company also stated that it is about to update all of its apps across the various platforms very soon. It seems that one of the new features might be the ability to store handwritten notes. The beta version of the Evernote app for Android has already received support for handwriting input.

At the moment, the feature allows you to write, draw, and scribble on your notes – it doesn't automatically recognize your input and transform it into typed text. It is not clear if Evernote plans to implement this beta feature as it currently is, or plans to evolve it into some kind of handwriting recognition.

This feature is currently available for the beta version of Evernote. In order to try it out, you have to be approved as an Evernote beta-tester. Once you have been given the necessary permissions, you can head on to Google Play and download the beta version of the popular app. If you are interested in doing so, check out the link at the source.

it's good to see Evernote listening to its users, all thanks to former Techcrunch writer Jason Kincaid, Evernote has never been better on iOS
