New Lenovo WRITEit® Technology™ Makes Handwriting on PCs and Tablets Better

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 15, 2015Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced WRITEit, an innovative new software application that makes the handwriting experience on select pen-enabled devices better. WRITEit transforms pen writing to a truly useful and practical solution for entering input: It allows users to write nearly anywhere they can type. It works across select Lenovo Windows® 8 devices with digitizer, active pen or AnyPen technology and provides real-time feedback and correction. All these advantages encourage more opportunities for users to write with a pen rather than type on a keyboard, giving them a continuous, faster and more accurate experience.

Freedom to Write Nearly Anywhere
Unlike the handwriting experience on many devices today, WRITEit lets users write their input directly into virtually any text field that accepts typed input, even if the field is in an app without native pen support. This capability takes handwriting from a limited, app-specific novelty to a truly viable means of input. WRITEit opens up a world of new writing possibilities beyond typical note-taking and drawing apps. For example, users can write search terms directly in a browser to quickly search the web instead of using the on-screen keyboard. WRITEit also works well for emails, social media, online forms and more.

WRITEit Right
WRITEit works in the background as users are writing and converts handwriting to text characters in real time. Speedy writers will love the automatic suggestion tool that offers alternatives to unrecognized words, helping to catch typos and getting text right the first time. A collection of gesture commands also makes editing easy.

Quote
“While touch technology has fundamentally changed the way consumers use their PCs and other devices today, handwriting technology has lagged behind, until now with WRITEit,” said Mark Cohen, vicepresident, Ecosystem and Monetization Business Group, Lenovo. “Users told us they wanted a more natural, intuitive and accurate handwriting experience, and that’s exactly what WRITEit delivers.”

Availability 1
WRITEit is available for the following pen-enabled devices: ThinkPad® YOGA™, ThinkPad Helix, ThinkPad 10 and YOGA Tablet 2 8-in with Windows featuring AnyPen™ technology. Users of these models can download WRITEit for free starting April 15 here: http://www.getwriteit.com. Lenovo will be bringing WRITEit to future products later this year.
