Where is my handwriting icon/option in Samsung A5?


AC Question

Can't find handwriting icon/option in Samsung A5

I have spent the past couple of days to find ways to do handwriting in my Samsung A5. Even after downloading the relevant language in "Language and Input" withing "Settings", I can't find the handwriting option or icon. Please help.

I couldn't find mine either. So I downloaded a handwriting app from google. It works a treat and gives the option in the settings after install. I find it more of a gimmick than a use though. Quicker to use a keyboard but good fun just the same. The option is still on my phone in case I want to show it to someone, like my son. But I'm back to the good old keyboard again.
