Handwriting & drawing now in iPad version of OneNote

One of the most requested features for Microsoft OneNote on the iPad has been support for drawing and handwriting. And now we have it! With the updated version, you can use your finger or stylus to make drawings, and just like the desktop version, the iPad version of OneNote can convert your handwriting into text. You can also use this feature to annotate existing documents, like scans that you make with the iPad.

The best part is the app includes wrist protection, so you can rest your hand on the screen just like you do with a pad of paper. (Since this is a new feature, I haven’t put it through a lot of testing. Many apps claim to do this, but fail.) You’ll find these features in the new Draw tab of the app.

More info is on the official OneNote blog. And here’s a demo:
