I was very glad to see this post! I have an android work phone, but I'm an iOS guy, and I was surprised that there was no freestyle handwriting feature on my new iPad. I'm a visual thinker. While I wouldn't use handwriting to write words (I'm a faster typer, and it's easier to search), anytime I need to sketch out a quick tattoo idea, art concept, pedalboard signal chain, or story arc, this feature would be a godsend. For me, the simpler and cleaner the drawing feature, the better. There are other apps for painting that need finer control, but Evernote, for me, is all about recording ideas quickly. Having the ability to represent an idea visually rather than trying to describe it would cut my idea capture time in half. Thanks for listening to my input! I'm a die hard Evernote fan, and I can't wait for handwriting on iOS!
