    Just added the CamNote app.

    I'm amazed that it can search my hand written notes.

    Why doesn't it just convert all my hand written notes to a text document. Now that would be useful.

    Well, judging by all the replies, not very far :biggrin:

    The more I look at it, Evernote can search jpgs anyway, so what is the use of this CamNote app anyway?

    Unfortunately, a search with Evernote is pretty dang useless, although now and again it will search and find a word in my chicken scrawl. If you have to write so freaking neatly you might as well use the keyboard.

    It seems that converting handwritten notes to text is very difficult (not surprisingly) so that's why there isn't a decent app out there. Ah well.
