I have a couple of 'Notes' type apps on my Touch and iPad and they're a lot of fun to do shorthand on, although I'm not yet far enough in the Anniv book to get to write it yet. Still, I do write some words there just for fun.
One good app is "Paperless", where you can have various notebooks on the shelf, and you can make a shorthand notebook out of one of them. You'll see what I mean if you can see the sample at the App store. That app is also good for putting your favorite pictures on, you just name that notebook "Photos". I really like that app.
They make some really nice small stylus's now. And these apps let you use a fine line pen or pencil and the writing is very smooth. It works well for shorthand! And it's fun to boot.
Debbie, I just bought Notabillity and LOVE it. I will warn you, they don't yet have much 'help' and organizing your folders (which they call 'Category') and files (which they call 'Subject' will be a little confusing but once you learn how to organize those things you'll love using this program. Just be patient with it and write to the developers if you need help. They get back to you within minutes if not seconds. Good luck!
Oh....I bought Notability after having already purchased a LOT of other note Apps and I like it the best by far.
"The new Smart Writing Set is a system made up of three objects – the special Paper Tablet notebook, the smart Pen+ and a companion App – that enable you to digitally edit and share what you create on paper in real-time without taking a photo, uploading files, or scanning documents.
The Pen, a slim, aluminum pen with a hidden camera that traces and digitizes everything you write."
It's $199 for the "set" and I think you have to use the special notebook with the special paper.
My new laptop is suppose to do this. I'm sure my other one would because it's a touch screen and has windows 10, but I didn't even see any information on this, although it might work better since the screen folds back to become a "tablet".
"Jot sticky notes, sketch, and draw on screenshots with your pen in the Windows Ink Workspace...."
I bought a cheap, first version, as it was mentioned somewhere on here. I have it on my fridge and make notes occasionally. I don't think this one was supposed to work with an app, but I don't know. I could take pictures, but sometimes I just rewrite it or type the shopping list on my app on my phone.
I did try it with shorthand, and it's not bad. There were no lines, but with Gregg shorthand you don't need them.
I went to a physical bank, inside, about two years ago and the lady there had one. Used it instead of a sticky note or notepad since what she wrote down didn't need to be saved and was pretty confidential.
Here's the website: myboogieboard.com/ Mine is a smallish one and the stylus clicks in a space on the bottom. There's a button on top to clear the screen, nothing is saved electronically.
Check sites for similar ideas, but less expensive if you want to. Used ones still might work pretty well if you can find one.
