Handwriting note-taking app for Android

I just added support for the Galaxy Note pen to Quill, so you can write without having to worry about your hand touching the screen. I have tested it with Chainfire's ICS repack and !TeamRocketRom v1.5. If you decide to give it a try and it doesn't work on your ROM please let me know!

Quill requires ICS or Honeycomb, so if you haven't upgraded your Galaxy Note from Gingerbread it will not work!

A key design goal is quick response to pen strokes and 100% vector graphics. Developed on a Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet.

Features
  • Active pen (digitizer) support on ThinkPad Tablet, HTC Jetstream, HTC Flyer, and Galaxy Note.
  • Very fast response to pen strokes.
  • "Fountain pen" mode supports pen pressure data, more pressure = thicker line.
  • Pinch-to-zoom.
  • Double-finger tap to zoom.
  • Two-finger move gesture.
  • Pen strokes are vector art, zoom does not pixelate your writing.
  • "Pen only" mode (optional) disables touch input while writing.
  • Android 3.x hardware accelerated graphics.
  • Open source (GPL), so your notes are not stuck in an opaque file format.
  • PDF export (save to SD card, Evernote, Share).
  • PNG (raster image) export.
  • Can backup/restore your data.
  • Ruled/Quad background paper
  • Tagging for pages so you can group them together.
  • Switch between multiple notebooks.
  • Undo/redo.

The n-trig active pen has been tested on the ThinkPad Tablet, HTC Jetstream, and the HTC Flyer (Honeycomb). The Samsung S-pen has been tested on the Galaxy Note. The basic functionality should work on any Android tablet, but distinguishing pen from finger data and pressure sensitivity might not work on others. Please let me know your results if you try it on another tablet. See also the supported devices wiki.

You can also get the app for free (as in free speech) at http://code.google.com/p/android-quill. Also available on the Android Market.

ICS 4.0 override
Hi! I couldn't get the ICS 4.0 stylus detection override to work on galaxy note (chainfire ICS repack). Without it all touch events write on the screen

Anywa, just a heads up. I'm sure it'll get fixed. Great app!!

Me neither - Samsung doesn't set SOURCE_STYLUS on pen events. This is a major bug imho, and hopefully it'll be fixed in the release. But Quill v9.3 adds special support for the Galaxy Note so you don't have to use the ICS stylus detection

Thanks for the offer of your app Quill. I tried to d/l from your website, both directly to Note and d/l to PC, then transfer to Note's ext. sd card.

In both cases, when trying to install, I got an error that said Unable to Parse Package. I don't know what that means, but it won't install. My Note is rooted and running franco.kernel v9.

Thanks.

Sorry if I wasn't clear enough, Quill requires Android v3+ (Ice Cream Sandwich on Honeycomb). I assume you are still on Gingerbread, right? I've edited the first post to avoid confusion.

Sorry, my ignorance! I saw you had tested on ICS and took that to mean it works on ICS in addition to Stock GB. I look forward to trying this when Samsung releases ICS update for the Note.

Thank you!

GREAT accuracy! it's even better than S-note (which is odd)... add a few backgrounds (different pieces of paper) and it's awesome!

Thanks a LOT!
