Ok I need an app that can do the following. Anyone tell me if it's even possible. Out there already or likely to be developed for the ipad it's for my 6 year old son that can't write for long. It's to be used at school and home on his new ipad ( soon to be anyway ) I would ideally like a app where a he could write with a finger ( or stylus??) on the touch screen and this be converted into text in a box on the screen somewhere. Preferably with the option to turn the spell check off. Then when he is tired for him to be able to hit a button and the keyboard to drop down in order for him to continue seamlessly with his work. I think that there is already software that let's you " write" Chinese japanese characters on the iPhone the difficulty I guess is the recognition of a 6 year old handwriting. This I would pay lots for as it's the main reason I am getting him the ipad. Actually I feel this device has a huge Market as an communication aid and as a learning tool for younger children. Anyone ???
