As you can see in the second image above:
' You can write small or large numbers, whichever you find easier.
If you write small numbers (about the size of a puzzle cell), the number will go into the cell that you write in. If you write large numbers, the number will go into the cell that you start writing in. '
As GeekWire's Todd Bishop put it, it's the debut of handwriting recognition in Puzzazz's newest puzzle book, Sudoku Unbound Volume 3, which is selling for $2.99, the same price as the other Puzzazz puzzles in the "Sodoku Unbound" series.
Unlike some handwriting-recognition in the past, such as that used in the Palm Pilot in 1996 when most gave up trying to get the Palm grafitti to work, Puzzazz's technology is smarter and more flexible.
The user doesn't have to learn a special way of writing, as it recognizes many styles of writing numbers and letters, due to Puzzazz' using a large base of handwriting samples while developing the capability.
Will Amazon want to make it a basic feature of the Kindle Touch? No one is saying.
Bishop was able to try TouchWrite and says "it worked reliably... the technology recognizes the number written invisibly on the screen, then places the digital version in the corresponding cell on the page of the puzzle book."
Bishop also points out that the Kindle Touch is Amazon's top selling e-Ink reader at $99 for the ad-supported version (which doesn't have the 3G-cell phone network access feature).
