Convert Handwriting to Text

I frequently have folks ask about an app that will convert handwriting to text. So far there very well has not been much of anything that worked, that is until now. it is called GoodNotes.

It is not free, a whopping $7.99, but in playing with it the last few days, it seems worth the price.

Iat is searchable, had a great way to organize things, tons of paper choices including lined paper, Cornell Notes, graph paper and sheet music.

Import and Export to iCloud Drive, Photos, Box, Dropbox, GoogleDrive and even OneDrive.
