Ask HN: Anyone converted to handwritten digital note taking?
4 points by dchuk 8 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite
I picked up the 2018 iPad a few weeks ago along with an Apple Pencil. I've always had a dream of being able to handwrite my notes but have them digital and converted to text for sending to others/emails/etc.

I use Apple Notes to store all of my notes, and it works well for that purpose. The Pencil support in it is fine, and even allows for searching your handwritten stuff, but strangely doesn't offer handwriting to text conversion (why they're allowing search of handwriting but not conversion of it, I don't know).

I've tried the MyScript Nebo app, and while its recognition and conversion is pretty good, it's just a clunky workflow.

I primarily do all my note taking in outline/bullet form, nesting deeply on some topics. I can't really find anything on the market that would allow me to transfer that process to be fully digital.

Anyone else gone exploring this same path? Any recommendations?
