    Take a look at My Script Nebo. The app itself is in most ways inferior to GoodNotes, but the new implementation of handwriting to text in the app really is superb. I believe that they licence it? Maybe explore licensing it off them, because its easily the best I’ve found at recognising handwriting. The actual implementation they have of it needs polish, but the raw handwriting recognition engine really is superb. Not having this is a big drawback for GoodNotes, because it means that text that you intend to edit later, for example writing a story or a novel, or any book for that matter, simply is not possible in GoodNotes. It is fine for notes, but not for any serious writing, because you can’t convert the handwriting to text. With the new IpadOS and IOS 13 operating systems this will become increasingly important, because the drop in pencil latency to 9ms (or actually 13 I believe, as 4ms of it isn’t accessible to non-apple apps currently) from 20ms, means that its going to be much nicer to use. GoodNotes is useless for long form writing, and yet, if it had the handwriting text converter of My Script Nebo, then it would become much more practical to write every day in GoodNotes, then convert the handwriting to text, and export it to a dedicated editor app like Ulysses or Scrivener. Please add this! My Script Nebo currently has the only implementation of handwriting to text that actually works without being annoying.
