WritePad for iPad – the versatile and feature rich note taking app – has been update this week, to Version 5.0.

The big new feature is sync with Evernote. The app already offers sync via Dropbox by default but adding Evernote as a sync option is a big plus. I’ve used Evernote for years now as my main ‘storage vault’ sort of notes app, bu I’ve never much enjoyed its UI for creating / editing notes on iOS devices. Having WritePad as a sort of ‘front end’ option for Evernote is interesting.

Here’s the full list of changes for WritePad for iPad 5.0:

1. Improved handwriting recognition engine now allows disabling unused letter shapes, which may help to expedite the application’s learning curve. *
2. Synchronization with Evernote (by default, WritePad synchronizes with Dropbox; use Options->Synchronization Settings to enable sync with Evernote).
3. New command displays document statistics, such as word and character count (Toolbar->Info).
4. Improved synchronization with Dropbox.
5. New command allows users to upload WritePad documents to their Google Documents account as text or PDF (Share->Send to Google Docs).
6. Improved user interface and graphics.
7. Text selection modified to mimic standard iPad selection style.

And here’s an App Store link for WritePad for iPad: it’s priced at $9.99.
