Best Japanese Handwriting Recognition

The iPad has always seemed like a great platform for studying Japanese, but it has lacked what many inferior PDA OS's (Windows Mobile, Nintendo DS) have - decent Japanese Handwriting Recognition. Some other programs (Midori, Shinkanji, Daijisen) have tried to implement a solution, but they are too tied to stroke order, and fail to bring up the correct kanji just often enough to annoy.

FreeWriter works brilliantly. It has yet to fail to produce the correct kanji. The first choice is almost always the right one so you really can take advantage of the split writing area to write quickly. It's a shame the developers seem to be marketing this just to native Japanese speakers. We foreigners are the ones who REALLY need good kanji recognition. A native speaker can easily enter kanji by pronunciation using the built-in keyboard.

I wish Apple would get off their butts and add an input system like this to the OS (the built-in Chinese recognition is just a horrible joke for Japanese). Until then, this is about as good as it's likely to get.
