AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Writing with pen and paper is entering the digital world thanks to new apps that work with smart pens to capture the written word and share and edit the content.
New apps take what people write or sketch on paper with a smart pen and enhance it with highlights, graphics and text. The written word can also be shared by email or to other apps such as Dropbox, for cloud storage, or Evernote for archiving.
EquilNote, an app for the iPhone and iPad, is paired with a smart pen called the Equil JOT. Its creators said the appeal is to preserve the art of writing, while updating it with digital enhancements.
