PhatPad has (Google) Drive

Gear Diary has written about PhatWare apps on a number of occasions, including here, here, here, and most recently, here. One of their best known products is PhatPad, a note-taking app that features handwriting recognition. I’ve used PhatWare products, including PhatPad, off and on for years. I’ve always been impressed with the quality of its handwriting recognition.

Back in August, Perry posted on an update that added Google Drive access to PhatPad’s iOS app. Now, PhatWare has announced that it has added Google Drive synchronization to its PhatPad app across multiple platforms, including iPad, Android, and Windows 8 and RT.

With this added Google Drive support, PhatPad can synchronize with a total of four cloud services – the others being SkyDrive, Dropbox, and Box – so it’s great for folks who use multiple platforms, say an Android tablet and an iPhone, as well as for those who want a good cloud backup of their notes. Check out PhatPad in the Apple App Store, Windows Store, and in Google Play. It’s $4.99 on all platforms.

Jeff’s interest in computers and technology began by watching too many Star Trek reruns after school. His first computer was a Timex-Sinclair, for which he had the 16K – yes, 16K – add-on pack. His current interest in gadgets was spurred on by the original Palm Pilot; from there it was a slippery slope to Pocket PCs, Archos media players, Sony Cliés, and various Apple products.
