First Look video: WritingPad for iPhone

As someone who types all day, I'd like to compose all the notes and e-mails I want in iPhone without ever lifting a finger. Until telepathic inputting catches on, WritingPad for iPhone (and iPod touch) is the next best thing. You still have to lift your finger, but only when you've finished tracing a word onto the virtual keyboard. Check out this First Look video to see what I mean.
