Has potential but too slow / needs quick switch

This app has potential to be an excellent handwritten notes app. But right now ink is laggy and there are gaps that sometimes appear in my handwriting when using a capacitative stylus. It'd get more stars if: 1. Ink was faster and more fluid on a Surface RT. 2. There was a simple gesture (such as a tripletap with the stylus?) to switch between write and pan mode. Right now you have to swipe for the menu.

I have used PhatPad with other platforms, and this Windows 8 version is as intuitive and easy to use as the other versions. I especially love the excellent handwriting conversion feature which I love using in my business environment. Well done!

Not worth paying for

After being relatively happy with the version for Ipad and Android, I was happy to see a version for Win8. What a disappointment. Much harder to control and no handwriting panel. You have to write everything out, stop and select and then hope it recognizes everything you wrote. Not user friendly at all.

Cute, but no instructions

Fun little app. Hard to erase. Apparently one does this by short horizontal strokes, but it doesn't work very well. Other than line width and a few colors, it's very limited. No layers..

the five start app of reasoning

This program is the next step to education, it shows the purpose of stylus and the purpose of writing straight to the surface. I think it needs a little more, like eraser, and advanced filing, so notes can be bluetoothed, infrared, or send to cloud or local storare, great app, great reasoning.

A very nice and highly useful app

I have been waiting for it. I have been using this app on my android phone and very pleased with this. I paid for that. however, this is free with same functionality. can you add animation feature, you provided for windows mobile platform?

Does not save text

Yes, you can write on it with a stylus, but I made pages and pages of text to go with my drawings and now EVERYTHING is gone. Apparently text doesn't save. no clear notice of this, what Is the point of converting handwriting to text if it just deletes them? Im very dissatisfied

Works well, but no eraser...

Writes fluidly on Surface RT, however the lack of an eraser is offensive. I realize this is a beta, but seriously.
