    Hello folks, Im currently using onenote for writing notes using apple pencil.
    Im just wondering if there is a better alternative out there?
    Perhaps something which can transcribe from handwriting to characters?

    I use GoodNotes 5 in conjunction with an Apple Pencil. It does a really good job of converting my rubbish handwriting into usable text.

    Nebo is well worth a look all it does is convert handwriting to typed text & also Goodnotes 5 is more of a notebook type app but it recognises handwriting as well.

    Hope this helps?

    Cheers all

    Nebo is I excellent. I use it to write my books on before exporting the text to Scrivener. The text transcription has improved massively over the past year so it’s rare a word gets transcribed incorrectly. Highly recommended.
