WritePad for iPad Updated – Adds Posting to Twitter

WritePad for iPad

WritePad for iPad has been updated, to Version 4.1.  The big new addition is …

Introducing twitter client: WritePad is the world’s first application to combine word processing functionality, handwriting recognition, and social networking in a single app.

I think the Twitter client wording is a pretty big exaggeration – it has added the ability to post to Twitter from within a note.  That’s nice, but it doesn’t make it a Twitter client in my view.

In any case, it’s a notable new feature.  I keep wanting to like WritePad better than I do – I’ve kept the app around for a while because I like the idea of its handwriting recognition, but I’ve found it hard to get the hang of it.

You can grab this latest version of WritePad for iPad in the App Store now, priced at $9.99.
