Handwriting Recognition App For iPhone Released (Beta)

An independent developer by the online name of mars1907 has created a new native app that brings Newton-like handwriting recognition to the iPhone. Called HWPen, the technology utilizes the iPhone's touch sensitivity to allow you to draw letters with your fingertip instead of type them on the keyboard, which is then recognized as a character and entered as text.

On an interesting note, the software was originally created by for the recognition of Chinese characters, but supports the Latin alphabet and Arabic numerals, too.

You can get HWPen on iPhone by adding the source . Also, this app is still in beta, so it might be a good idea to back up your springboard plist /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ beforehand.
