One of the great things about the world of tablets is that you get to constantly find new and compelling apps. In fact the process of discovering new apps is almost as fun as playing with the new apps themselves. One app that I would like to highlight is an app called Quill.
Quill, is a handwriting note-taking app specifically designed with a pen-optimized tablet in mind. One of the key design goals is to ensure a quick response to pen strokes and 100 percent vector graphics. The n-trig active pen has been tested on the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, but the basic functionality should work on any Android tablet.
Some of the key features include:
- Active pen (digitizer) support for the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet
- Very fast response to pen strokes.
- “Fountain pen” mode supports pen pressure data, more pressure = thicker line.
- Double-finger tap to zoom.
- Two-finger move gesture.
- Pen strokes are vector art, zoom does not pixelate your writing.
- “Pen only” mode (optional) disables touch input while writing.
- Android 3.x hardware accelerated graphics.
- Open source (GPL), so your notes are not stuck in an opaque file format.
- PDF export (save to SD card, Evernote, Share).
- PNG (raster image) export.
- Can backup/restore your data.
- Ruled/Quad background paper
- Tagging for pages so you can group them together.
- Switch between multiple notebooks.
With all these capabilities, you have an incredible pen experience, and for the mobile, enterprise worker on the move, you have a great tool that allows you to capture notes and share them with others via popular tools like Evernote.
