Introducing Bamboo Spark: a smart notebook that saves your handwritten notes digitally. In a beta-version it even allows you to convert those handwritten notes to plain text instead of retyping. Now writers of all stripes can write like their heroes while continuing to move their process forward.
Bamboo Spark‘s most requested app feature is now available to download. Beginning today, Bamboo Spark supports handwriting to text conversion, giving users the ability to write on paper, save their work to the cloud, and then convert their handwriting into convenient standard text files. It’s just one more way Bamboo Spark continues to deliver the best pen-to-paper-to-digital experience.
