Evernote Adds Handwriting Support to its App
Evernote has noted that users want to quickly note down or draw a sketch instead of just typing things out. Because of that need, the Evernote app has included handwriting support in its latest update. Users can now write notes or draw illustrations using a stylus or their finger quickly and save it for later. To start writing in Evernote, users simply have to tap the paperclip icon and then the pen icon. Users can also search their notes for handwritten notes, thanks to Evernote’s search tool for added convenience.

This will be implemented in the new version of Google Play Game Services toolkit during the 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. While this is good news, there is no word – at the time of printing – as to when the service will be made available.
