PhatWare’s PhatPad on a Tablet PC InkShow

 Phatware recently updated their Phatpad software to work with Windows Vista.  I had the opportunity to have a demo copy to play with to do an InkShow, and I am not disappointed.  This is my first time with the program and I have to say that I was impressed with the program. 

 In this InkShow, I have run through some of the main features of the program.  One thing I liked was the shape recognition while jotting down a note.  There are many of the features that I didn’t go over in the InkShow, but there is a free 30 day trial for anybody that wants to experience the full featured program for themselves.  Some of the improvements for this version are:


  • Allows to load background images
  • Allows toolbar customization
  • Supports handwriting recognition (PenOffice and/or CalliGrapher software is required, sold separately); Tablet PC recognizer can be also used
  • Supports vertical and horizontal auto scrolling
  • Allows to mix digital text, handwriting and drawing on the same page
  • Supports document templates
  • Supports printing (Desktop/Tablet PC)
  • Supports document password protection with 265-bit encryption
  • Includes 7 UI themes (Desktop/Tablet PC)
  • Includes new bring to front/send to back commands
  • Includes spell checker for Desktop PC
  • Allows changing page order in the PhatPad document
  • Allows notes animation with new Animation feature
  • Includes multiple customizable toolbars
  • Includes new File and Page managers for Pocket PC
  • Includes new Pocket PC Today screen add-on
  • Supports Windows Mobile 5.0 more…
  • Supports Windows Vista (x86 and x64)

Enjoy the show!  Also, look for the follow up show with PhatPad and Pocket PC syncing!!
