New app has shorthand, spell-check
PhatWare has launched a new iPhone app, PhatNotes. The utility features handwriting recognition for input, alongside keyboard entry, and allows users to enter shorthand. Editing options include a spell checker, configurable auto-corrector and a customizable dictionary. PhatNotes manages notes using folders and groups determined by specified attributes, while users can take advantage of note filtering and text search.
The iPhone app offers full sync with the latest release of its desktop counterpart, PhatNotes Desktop 5.5, which is now compatible with Windows 7.
The desktop software requires Windows XP or newer, while the App Store title requires iPhone OS 3.0 or higher and works with all iPhones and the iPod touch 2G or newer. The new app costs $10, while the desktop software can be purchased for $20.
