PhatPad for iPad Now Released. We’ve Got Codes to Give Away

Good news for digital inkers who use an iPad. PhatWare the makers of WritePad, PhatNotes and other digital inking software has just released PhatPad for the iPad. And we’ve got some codes to give away! See below the video for details.

I haven’t had an opportunity to check out PhatPad for the iPad yet, but if the development of this App follows along the lines of what PhatWare has been doing with WritePad, digital inkers will want to check this out. PhatWare is positioning this as a brainstorming and notetaking device. Here’s what PhatWare lists you can do:

  • Type or scribble notes using a smooth-flowing digital ink technology.
  • Combine drawing, handwritten text, images, and digital text on the same document page to create media-rich content.
  • Convert handwritten notes into text with PhatPad’s powerful handwriting recognition software.
  • Synchronize PhatPad documents with the desktop computer via iTunes or Dropbox.
  • Share documents between two or more devices on a local WiFi network, or email them to anyone from within PhatPad.
  • Send documents to a printer on your wireless network via AirPrint.
  • Export PhatPad documents as a PDF.
  • Use standard editing commands such as Undo, Redo, Cut, Copy, and Paste.

Check out their video.

PhatWare has given us codes to give away four copies of PhatPad for the iPad. So, we’ll run a little random contest here. All you need do is leave a comment to this post telling us how you will use PhatPad for the iPad. Make sure you leave your email address when you log in to comment so we can contact you. Comments for this contest will be accepted through Sunday, December 19 at 12 midnight EST. There will be four winners selected.


  1. When I’m directing a show Ihues the iPad to take notes. I have been using penultimate with some degree of difficulty. I would welcome the chance to be more efficient here.

  2. I will use it as a notepad in meeting so I can get my notes into text format with the handwriting recognition function.

  3. I will use this to prepare my lecture notes for teaching, with a combination of equations, handwritten notes, photos/graphics, webclips and maybe some embedded video (I’ll need to try this). Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. I’m after an app to use as an electronic labbook for diagrams and notes about the experiments that I’m working on. I work in a laser lab and it’s really annoying having to scan pages of my (paper) labbook to go with the .csv data files that I sync through evernote.

  5. I am already a WritePad user and this seems to be much improved! As a post-grad student in knowledge management and an innovator of iPad usage in business context this has the potential to become the most intuitive tool for 2010!!! It’s as close to OneNote on iPad as you can get and a combination of NoteShelf and Noterize for the ultimate productivity APP OF THE YEAR.

  6. If it lives up to it’s promise, would be great to combine text handwriting and images. I’ve been through about 12 apps trying to find the right app to use for handwritten notes. How this app handles that will likely be the make or break decision point for adopting and using this.

  7. To round on my 30 or so thoracic patients in the morning and send out updates to the team regarding the plan for the day…

  8. I am a full time student, and a security officer. I will use my Phatpad to take notes at work as well as in class… thanks for your consideration.
