The software deals keep on coming. For a limited time, ritePen 3.5 is available for $29.95, a $10 savings, and includes a free upgrade to version 4.0, which includes special multi-touch functionality.
Sadly, my lack of a multi-touch Tablet PC has kept me from the 4.0 beta testing (will need to work on that), but for pen input, I cannot live without ritePen 3.5. If you think it’s just for text input (which it does very well), you are sorely mistaken. The ink command macros are absolute invaluable, allowing me to quickly launch an app or URL, insert boilerplate text, or perform any keyboard command with a scribble. The screen capture and markup tools have made it the only tool I need for screen grabs. It’s made my Tablet PC interface almost completely pen-centric.
