Use Your Handwriting

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Use Your Handwriting® (UYH®) lets you finger write quick notes, lists and messages on your iPhone or iPad and view them on your Apple Watch. Its unique handwriting engine simulates the physics of a fountain pen to produce smooth and fulfilling drawing strokes. Your handwriting will flow beautifully and come out looking elegant with natural variations in darkness and thickness.
The beauty of UYH is accompanied by a powerful set of features: multi-level lists, quick alarms, sync across devices, visualize notes online, calendar and hands-on tutorial for every feature. Use it to take notes, for brainstorming, to outline your ideas, as a whiteboard, as a calendar for task management, or as a replacement for sticky notes.
NEW! Shop with UYH on your Apple Watch. Simply "pinch out" your shopping list to make it appear on your Apple Watch.
BEAUTIFUL CALLIGRAPHIC WRITING STYLES
No matter what your 4th grade teacher told you, you have beautiful handwriting. What you couldn’t do with a pen, you can do with UYH. Choose between five different writing styles and your calligraphy will be amazing everyone in no time.
LEAN AND MEAN CALENDAR
Plan your weekly schedule in UYH by annotating days with your handwritten notes. It's quick but also powerful. Use it to jot down a quick todo and see it in Notification Center, or to take down elaborate categorized logs. Calendar notes scheduled for today appear in the UYH app on your Apple Watch!
QUICK HANDWRITTEN ALARMS
Need a reminder? Scribble a note, press and hold it and pick a time. You will be alerted in time even if the app is not active, or your device is asleep. The alert will even show on your Apple Watch!
TAKE NOTES OF ANY LENGTH
With UYH, there’s no limit to expressing yourself. Your long notes are automatically broken into multiple lines at word boundaries.
EMAIL/FACEBOOK/TWITTER YOUR ARTISTIC NOTES
Why? Because handwritten messages to friends mean so much more! Create your own colorful greetings for any occasion and email them to that special someone, or cut and paste them in other apps, such as MMS.
CREATE POWERFUL LIST HIERARCHIES
Want to drill down into something? In UYH, any item in a list can become its own sublist, so there’s no limit to how many lists and notes you can make.

What's New in Version 9.2
Redesigned UI on Apple Watch
Good except for slow sync
I use this app for my grocery list. Unlike a lot of other list apps I've tried it doesn't automatically rearrange the list order which makes it ideal to keep track of every product in each aisle. My only issue with this app is how slowly it sinks as compared to other syncing apps available. Other than that it's very useful. Unfortunately however the latest version shuts down my music whenever I access it while I'm shopping. I'm one of those folks who likes to shop with my earbuds in so this is a real problem.
I have used this app since 2009. Very reliable and useful. Maybe the UI is a bit dated but it's still pretty. I use it as my daily to do list, for brainstorming and to outline presentations and writing.
Love the calendar!
I hadn't been using the app as much the past few years. But I went to start using it again and it hangs up when editing a list on my iPhone. I tried to edit the name of a list and there is no erase feature. Nor is there a way to delete a whole list (if I wanted to try that as a way to rename). I will be deleting this app and looking elsewhere for managing lists.
