Handwriting recognition for jailbroken iPhones

updated 09:55 pm EDT, Thu April 17, 2008

iPhone writing recognition

ModMyiFone.com forum members have discovered a new utility for jailbroken iPhones which allows for handwriting recognition using a small grey area. The beta software can recognize both Latin and Chinese characters at the moment, transcribing finger motions into editable text on a yellow notepad-style document. User poetic_folly notes that installing HWPen requires the user to add iphonecake.com/src/all as the installer source.

Poetic_folly also suggests that the software could replace some users desire for handwriting recognition, such as those that are used to writing on a Palm device.

    dictionary

    i see this as a great start to letting writing recognition for dictionary of sets other than the set we use in western countries. great for language learners.

    hope a well-respected maker comes to the devkit and brings handwriting to languages such as hebre, japanese and russian
