 Everyone knows pypennotes: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/PyPenNotes
 
 Just for your information, I found some more advanced tools not
 available on Freerunner yet:
 
 http://xournal.sourceforge.net/ (PDF annotating etc)
 http://java-notelab.sourceforge.net/ (runs on java, saves on SVG,
 exports PNG/JPG/etc, printing support, designed for tablet pc etc)
 http://www.adebenham.com/gournal/ (SVG saving etc)
 http://www.dklevine.com/general/software/tc1000/jarnal.htm (document
 annotation, including PDF, runs on java - would be useful with lecture
 notes :)
 
 Let me know if you end up trying some of these.

All seem doomed with a capacitive screen :|

Doesn't Freerunner have resistive? Explain more, please.

There's a lot of talk that the next versions will have a capacitive
screen. I lost track of it as this issue usually quickly becomes a
flame war.

Re: Note taking applications

2009-03-19 Thread Xavier Cremaschi
Maybe he meant with a small screen ?

I think we need a software which allows us to write a word in fullscreen 
(maximizing the available writing area), then detects (pause? gesture?) 
the word is complete, adds it to the current sentence, and cleans the 
screen for next word.

Does anyone have an idea of such a software ?

Xavier.

The Freerunner has a resistive screen. It appears the next model will have a 
capacitive screen. There was a huge thread not long ago about their relative 
merits.
