Impressed with Google Handwriting Input

While searching for a way to put emojis on my Twitter posts, as it seems that it only works on iOS devices, I stumbled on the brand new Google Handwriting Input app which was released yesterday. As it name says, the app converts handwritten words and shapes into text input on your Android device. It supports 82 languages, cursive and printed writing and will work with or without a stylus.

Google Handwriting Input easily recognized my terrible handwriting and even offered auto-spell correction.
I’ve been using it since yesterday on my Nexus 5 and what a joy it is to use. I’m very impressed as it recognized my terrible handwriting even after my finger has ran out of space on the screen and was literally scribbling over the letters I just wrote. Another cool thing about it is that it accepts or recognizes my national language Filipino without auto-spell correction kicking in and making a mess of my grammar and sentences.

The only thing I can’t seem to do with it is write the number “0” as the app interprets it as the letter “o”. Over all though, the app is impressive (can’t say this enough) and is the perfect companion to the already awesome Google Keyboard. It works on phones and tables running Android 4.0.3 and up.

Anyone else who has tried this great new app from Google?
