It's crashes if you try to open it on landscape mode.

I got a little bit of lag when writing, so some letters are "skipped".

And this (Smart palm detection) seems not working right... :'(

If you wanna more information, send me a PM, I can help you to debug that.

Using a Xoom 3.0 with a Kensington stylus.

Needs a backup\restore option.

Also, I wrote something on a page and tried to go the next page and got a file error message. It did go to the next page though. And how do you delete a page? I'm going to be taking a class soon and would like to use this for taking notes.

This app also needs a categories function.

Landscape mode would be great. With a xoom case that tilts / holds the tab only landscape really is feasible
The eraser function is good, but a thicker eraser stroke would make it easier to erase specific lines

Looks really good
As already commented I find that there is a bit of lag, but definitely the best app for handwriting I have found so far.

I wonder if the lag may have anything to do with other apps running such as push email synchronisation???

Keep up the good work, you could be on to a winner and the best equivelant to Penultimate.

Like the automatic palm rest.

Like the way the eraser works, but would be nice to be able to increase the "eraser head" size to be able to erase a full line at a time.

I do get some lag though, which can be inconvenient, but not a deal breaker.

Thanks for all the good work! This is already one of the better hand writing apps and shows potential to be the best.

Would be great if it could take a little of the TabPad concept, which works in landscape / is made for honeycomb, has good drawing function and a great eraser. Faster too.... but can only share with facebook
MakeNotes (beta) could give some inspiration too with its auto shapes function.

Tried it with my Transformer and the palm feature didn't work. I actually ended up with input locations in a couple of spots where my hand was resting. Not sure if it was related, but the stylus input sometimes didn't register. Also, not sure about the calibration set-up. Should it show some indication that my tracing is registering? I get no indication which ends up throwing off the whole calibration.
