A robust handwriting recognition app, perfect for tablet owners
Nebo changes the game for tablet owners who want to make handwritten notes on their digital device and not have to then take the time to type them up. It’s a very capable and competent solution that boasts accurate handwriting recognition across 66 different languages and is available on iOS, Windows, and Android. It works best with an active pen, such as the Apple Pencil.
In addition to writing with an input device, you can also type, and mix up typing with handwriting. There is also the ability to sketch and draw, with math equations and shape recognition abilities built in to the app. Nebo even recognizes drawn emojis and can convert these into digital versions. The app uses simple gestures to create sections, edit and resize your notes, create headings and lists, add and remove spaces and line breaks, delete content, and emphasize text.
You can add images into Nebo notes, then annotate them in the note. Nebo notes can easily be organized by dragging and dropping. You can add words, names, or acronyms to your personal dictionary to “train” Nebo to recognize them in the future. All Nebo notes, whether handwritten or typed, are searchable. When you’re done you can export Nebo pages as a Word doc, a PDF, HTML, and text.
We’re big fans of all these apps, all of which offer something to suit particular needs and users. Our overall top choice is Bear. This is a contemporary note-taking solution with an intuitive user interface and a clean design.
Anyone looking to hand write their notes on a digital device is advised to check out Nebo, it’s ultra-smart handwriting recognition technology will take your hastily scribbled scrawls and convert them into neat type in no time. If you need to combine recording audio with note-taking then we thoroughly recommend Noted. It’s an ideal choice for students attending lectures, business folk that need to take minutes of meetings, and a handy way to record interviews while jotting down comments.
