Handwrite, a new way to search

As someone who tends to be an early adopter I often find myself wondering whether something that I think is ultra cool is actually useful.  Sometimes I can see it clearly such as in 1995 when I predicted that the GPS was going to be awesome – to a lot of eye-rolling I might add.

Today I came across Handwrite – Google’s latest tool that let’s you just write your search queries on the screen instead of typing them.

  1. My fingers are much too chubby for this app. I can barely type on the screen type keyboard – I’m constantly hitting the wrong key. Okay. My fingers aren’t really chubby – just clumsy.But I’m against any app that makes my fingers feel fat. 😉

    • It’s not you. There’s really not much room for scrawling on the screen, and it sometimes takes your answer before you finish writing it. At this point I’m voting for gimmick…time will tell!
