Use Your Handwriting

By Gee Whiz Stuff

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.




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.


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!


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!


With UYH, there’s no limit to expressing yourself. Your long notes are automatically broken into multiple lines at word boundaries.


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.


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.

[In-app purchase required]

You can sync notes across any number of devices via You can even publish your notes as web pages and view them online. The website lets you view your notes in several formats suitable for brainstorming and mind mapping.

Customer Reviews


Couldn't ask for more. It does exactly what it says. Clear, easy to follow instructions make what seemed complicated at first glance very simple. I love the way the tutorial actually takes you through step by step and can be utilized for reminder lessons the same way. The colors and options bring a little fun to taking notes for my number-crunching desk job. The formatting makes it very easy to organize to the tiniest detail or just jot a quick note. And kudos to the app developer for online access and such easy sharing options. The only thing I would add is the option to include sub lists/tasks all at once when forwarding. I ran into a few glitches setting up my online account after downloading the app to my iPhone first. The support team was fantastic and so efficient. (I actually emailed on a Saturday expecting a response on Monday. I got one on Sunday!) Nice to see a developer devoted to a quality product and great customer service. Loving it so far. Very impressed.

Use this app every day

I maintain many lists on this app - to do, shopping list, books to read, debit card purchase amount (I can lose a receipt in 5 minutes ), and quick notes. I love it and it only gets better

Getting Worse

I used to love this app but it's full of noisy ads now. I do get that ads pay for the app in the free version, but it's weird and awkward to have noise coming from an otherwise silent app. Other than the noise it's mostly bug-free for me and easier than typing. I haven't really used the new iOS notes but if they prove better I'll drop this app.
