AT&T Galaxy Note owners can grab Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update via Samsung Kies now


Tuesday 10th of July 2012 / androinica.com
The Samsung Galaxy Note on AT&T finally has support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. AT&T and Samsung announced today that the Galaxy Note, the surprise hit of the year with a very large screen and very solid support base, can be upgraded to ICS and unlock new Android 4.0 features as well as the Premium Suite of Samsung-specific upgrades.The Galaxy Note update extends the capabilities of the S Pen stylus/drawing/input system. A new Shape Match feature can smooth out crudely drawn figures, so your circles or lines can be smooth or straight. The Formula Match converts hand drawn equations into math formulas that can be solved by the calculator, and a Wolfram Alpha search can be performed based on a handwritten note. The S Memo note taking app has been changed to bring all note forms – typed, written, voice, image, and search – into one easily browsable location. There are also new document templates and PDF annotations.Android 4.0 features like Face Unlock and Android Beam also make their way to the Galaxy Note.

Flexible note-taking app for Nexus tablet


Friday 18th of January 2013 / android.stackexchange.com
I've been considering purchasing a Nexus 7 tablet for note-taking at University. Studying maths/engineering, my ideal app would need a number of features, including:The ability to take handwritten notes, and to convert these to printed text either immediately or at a later date (I might want to keep some sections hand-written).The ability to enter equations (ideally these could be converted to a math font (as done here) but this is not essential).The ability to draw diagrams directly onto the notes (i.e. to by-pass the large input box at the bottom of most note-taking apps).My ideal app would have an optional Swype-style keyboard (I think this is built into Android these days???)The ability to organise notes into different folders, and to search through the content of notes.Does such an ideal app exist? Or am I just dreaming?Thankyou!!!

Handwritten note taking app?


Friday 02nd of July 2010 / androidforums.com
Hey guys, I'm considering getting a new mobile device, and this will definitely influence my decision about whether to go Android or Windows 7 (mobile).I really like onenote because I can handwrite my notes- and so i remember them better than when I type them. I can also select my text with the lasso (or even individual strokes with a click!) and move it around, in case I don't leave enough room or something.Anyway, I'm looking for an app for android that lets me take advantage of a stylus and take notes in multiple colors, and be able to select and move/resize my text. I'd LIKE (but could do without) to be able to sync to my desktop and add pictures or text or whatever- basically what i can do with onenote. However, I haven't found a comprehensive application for android, and I may go with the windows device, just so that I can use onenote (but the performance scares me a bit- android is really snappy!). I wouldn't mind paying for the app. <$100-150I already checked out the web apps version of onenote, but it doesn't do handwriting. Anyone know if an app like this exists, or is i

Lecture note taking app


Monday 18th of October 2010 / androidforums.com
Hi, I am considering buying an Android tablet- but I can only justify buying it if I can use for uni.What I want is an app that can be used for taking notes in lectures. I have looked around- but nothing quite hits the nail on the head in terms of functionality. I am physics student, so I need to be able to easily put handwritten notes(equations, etc) into the typed notes. The features I would like are as follows:-A fast keyboard like Swype for the typed notes. If this also had a quick way to insert greek letters and some mathamitical operators that would be great. If you could do handwriting recognition on the fly, that would also be awesome. -A way to insert handwritten sections into the notes. I was thinking that the handwritten section could be made in a separate screen then dragged into the document and resized with two fingers as needed.-Export to .doc (perhaps sync to google docs would be possible)-A good filing system, so the notes can be organised by lecture course. -Annotation ability for PDFs and slides would be a nice feature, but not essential. For me, this would be a k

S-Pen, S-Note, Evernote, and other note-taking/handwriting apps


Thursday 06th of December 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
So, after owning the Note 2 for almost a month, I finally am trying to explore the stylus a bit. I like the idea of taking handwritten notes, but it seems it's still not quite fully "baked." I'll explain: First off, it would be nice to have something better integrated with Evernote. I know you can sync S-Notes with Evernote, but it seems the note just gets added as a file attachment, and there's no way to actually open that attachment once it's in Evernote. So then what good is that? Second, it would be nice to be able to set the default app that starts when you take the stylus out. Right now it's S-Memo or nothing. Heck, even being able to open a new S-Note would be better, as I'll explain below. S-Note vs. S-Memo. It was a bit difficult understanding that there seem to be different content types within the note S-Note app. So you can do a full S-Note, but an S-Memo (which doesn't have an associated app, it's just a content type within S-Note) is similar but has a lot fewer capabilities. Specifically, you don't have the tools icon so you can't do andwriting recognition, sh

App for Handwritten / Drawn Notes


Wednesday 23rd of February 2011 / androidforums.com
I'm debating picking up a Motorola Xoom tablet when it is released, and my main use for the tablet are going to be for college - more specifically, I wish to use it as my go-to note taking device, in conjunction with one of those capacitive styluses. The idea is, that I will be writing notes virtually from now on - so that my notes are synchronized between computer, phone, and tablet.I'm curious, though. Before I decide further on a tablet, I want to find an app that lets me handwrite/draw notes, and save them as a file that can be opened on a computer (pdf, doc, jpeg, etc.). The classes I will be taking (calculus, physics, etc.) require that I draw graphs, draw mathematical symbols such as integral signs, fractions, and so on and so forth. So, I'm looking for an app that basically lets me free draw on a page, preferably a lined page, as well as change pen colors to help me markup and write notes on the sides and whatnot.Does anyone know of an app that does something close to this?

Handwritten note-taking arrives in Evernote for Android


Wednesday 05th of March 2014 / feedproxy.google.com
Our favorite note-taking app for Android, Evernote, received a massive update today. Handwriting has arrived. The ability to take handwritten notes has long been a much requested feature for the client. “When we started working on a way to bring digital handwriting to Evernote for Android, we knew that our approach needed to extend the current Evernote experience rather than simply provide an alternate input method,” Evernote’s Andrew Sinkov wrote in a blog post today. “It took us a long to time to figure out exactly how to make this work.”Inside any note, you can tap the pen icon to start writing freely. If you need more room, click on the plus symbol at the bottom of the screen. Also, you can choose different colors and levels of thickness for your script, and just tap on the checkmark to immediately return to typing, add an attachment, record audio, or drop an image into the note, all in one place. Check out a video and download link after the break.Play Store Download Link» See more articles by Aditya Thawardas//

Any recommendations for S pen note taking apps?


Friday 07th of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
In an avid Evernote user, and while I certainly appreciate their most recent update I am looking for a note taking app that will allow me to completely get rid of paper notebooks. My requirements include. .. 1. Allow me to write using the S pen or my finger BUT if I'm using the S pen disables other touch inputs so I don't mess up the screen resting my hand on it while writing. 2. Allow me to search for text written in my handwritten notes. 3. Allow automatic synchronization so my notes are available to me on both my tablet and Note 3.4. Allow me to change paper templates and sizes. (The built in Samsung S Note app would probably do everything I needed if only it would allow me to Chang paper sizes to A4 or 8.5x11".) Anything anyone has used that meets these requirements? Thanks, Herb Posted via Android Central App
