Evernote releases a major update for its Android app, adds handwriting input
Evernote for Android just got better, as the popular cross-platform note-taking app has just been updated with a plenitude of brand new features.

One of the most interesting new traits is the handwriting feature, which was initially implemented into the beta version of the app. Simply put, the handwriting function allows you to write, draw, or doodle on a note and save it as it is. This feature shouldn't be mistaken for regular text recognition, as it wouldn't automatically transform your scribblings into typed text.

You can select the width and the color of the brush you use for writing into the note. The writing space within a note can be easily expanded, as well.

Apart from the handwriting trait, Evernote's note editor is one of the other already-existing features of the app, which got refreshed with some new perks. The editor now allows you to stress on any text by conveniently highlighting it with a color of your choice. Additionally, the editor also allows you to create hyperlinks between your notes.

Last, but not least, it seems that the Evernote team has listened to the complaints of some of the Evernote users and finally fixed the laggy built-in camera feature. After the update, the integrated snapper is significantly faster and comes with enhanced auto-focusing capabilities.

Idk if you're looking for note taking or what, but there is an AMAZING handwriting to text calculator that solves basic to advanced math problems. I use it on my 5s, not sure if it is on the Play Store (my Note is dead, can't check atm) but it is called: MyScript Calculator

Dude thanks for that subtle hint. Found the app MyScript Notes mobile. Kinda expensive and a low rating. But thats the case for expensive apps in play store;-).
