    Any favorite apps that convert a handwritten note to text. I thought S Note had that function, but can't make it happen.

    If you hover the pen over an input location, there will be a blue dot with a T. Sometimes it can be hard to get it to appear. (or maybe I've never learned the trick for it) Anyway, tap that. It will allow you to input text with the pen then, when done, it translates it to type. I've used it in Keep a lot and in text messages (NextSMS/Handcent)

    If you handwrite something in Samsung Notes and then use the selection tool, you can then select extract text from the menu to convert the ink to text.

    It’s a pity that even in the most modern smartphones there isn’t any tool or app that does this. I think, it is a really important and valuable technology and it should be in every smartphone or pc and it’s really strange that there is a program which recognizes the handwritings but don’t convert them to text, it would be really comfortable. For one who writes a lot for work it really suits more to write by pen, so usually use online service to convert the handwritten notes to text. Try, maybe it’ll suit you too.

    Would you please explain how you do that? I have looked to try to see what you mean, but don't have a clue. What is the selection tool? Thanks.

    There are two ways to convert handwriting to text in Samsung Notes. The first is when using the stock Samsung keyboard, select the write to text option.

    The other is as mentioned before, extract to text using the selection tool like this. Just select the tool and draw around the text that you want to extract, then choose extract text from the pop up menu. You can then paste the extracted text into your note.
