Editors' Notes

Our iPad Pro becomes an awesome on-the-fly notepad with this app built specifically for Apple Pencil. With a few taps and strokes, we can format handwritten text as titles, paragraphs or bulletpoints. And creating diagrams or marking up photos? Dead simple. Ah, the simple joy of taking old-fashioned notes—and decorating the page with random doodles!

At last!!!


Three days ago I was looking for an app that would allow me to convert handwriting into text on my iPad Pro, using the Apple pencil. The search led to Notes Plus. But while there, I saw MyScript. It was free and had some rave reviews from people with bad handwriting. I installed it and immediately found that a £1.99 add-on was required to make it work. I followed the link to get this, only to be told that this was only available in the US. Outraged, I posted a scathing review, giving it one
* - and would have given it less if I could have. I paid my £9.99 for Notes Plus. I soon found that, good as it was for many things, it was completely unable to decipher my handwriting. I can't blame it - only three people on the planet have been able to read what I write, and, sadly, two of them have passed on. I gave up the search. The next day - I'm nothing if not determined - I started again. This time the search led to Nebo MyScript. When tried to install it I found that it was already there. Overnight it had morphed. This time without the €1.99 add-on. I have now spent some time going through the tutorials and can announce that I'm In Love. Finally, and at last, I have found the Holy Grail! This whole review has been written with this more-than-5 * miracle. I am beyond grateful, not to mention filled with wonder. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The digital world continues to amaze me.

No LATEX export


The app is reasonably good at recognising my handwriting, the features work as advertised.

The equation editor is OK. It works about as well as the MyScript math pad, i. e. it can cope with simple mathematical expressions fairly well, but anything with subscripts AND superscripts will inevitably be misinterpreted. If does however have one advantage, in that the drawing space isn't moving around, which makes sketching most formulae a bit easier.

My biggest issue is with the odd choice of export options. Plain text - sore, PDF- maybe: if you want to be able to produce an end result. Word -is a bit cringey: it's a notoriously poor format for equations, and is closed-source, which makes its presence in an IOS -exclusive app a bit disconcerting.

HTML, then makes little sense. I struggle to find a use case where it would be a requirement, when being able to embed latex of some form, moat have been much more useful.

When I saw this app my immediate response was, "gee , I could write a scientific paper in it". If I knew there was no LATEX support, I would not have bought it, and considering I was not given an opportunity to investigate, I do not think it cesouvs 4 stars. If that feature were to be implemented, IT gladly change the rating.

Developer Response

Hi Jimquisitior, we appreciate your feedback. For the time being it is possible to export as LaTeX, block by block (it is also possible to write equations on several lines); Please refer to http://support.myscript.com/knowledgebase.php?article=268. We're working on the possibility to add the export of the full page as LaTeX. Thank you, Nat from MyScript
