I just downloaded and started playing with Vision Objects' MyScript Studio Notes Edition, a note taking and organizing application, and I'm not really sure what to think. It is built by the same company that gave us Quickscript, the quite functional, if buggy,
It does not make a good first impression. MyScript Studio's user interface is just short of hideous with detailing that might be described as Gothic.
Nonetheless, if you overlook all the icons that you are never going to use and those that work oddly, or all screen space the app wastes, or the folders that it insists on putting in your main directory, you realize that there are some good ideas hidden here. The ability to convert figures and handwritten notes into vector graphics and text is cool. The split screen works nicely. The apps ability to organize notes is rudimentary but O.K. I'm going to play with it a bit more before making up my mind. Download it yourself at Vision Objects' website. It has a 30-day trial.
[How about that name, MyScript Studio Notes Edition, memorable, huh? Microsoft couldn't do any better.]
