Today, Nuance has some news that may get some people excited. Nuance has released a complementary application for the iPad. The new option combines the power of Dragon NaturallySpeaking and PaperPort. With the new application, PaperPort users will be able to create/dictate notes and store them in the PaperPort using cloud storage.
PaperPort is already one of the most popular applications for trying to organize your digital library of documents. The application that they’ve released is for the Apple iPad, users are able to capture handwritten, typed and dictated notes. The application also supports saving documents to other cloud services, such as Google docs, box.net, Dropbox and PaperPort Anywhere.
In addition to users being able to create notes with the new application, it also have some of the traditional functions of PaperPort such as annotation, highlighting documents and the ability to combine mobile documents all via the web. The application also takes advantage of a growing trend that seems to be coming around in imaging industry; using cameras as document imaging devices. This application allows the users to take pictures using the built-in digital camera in the iPad, and it saves the document as a PDF [an industry-standard].
Key Features of PaperPort Notes
Nuance PaperPort Notes supporting English is currently available as a free download in the Apple App Store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/paperport-notes/id476134017?mt=8.
By offering this application [formerly Noterize] to existing PaperPort users, using the PaperPort anywhere option, really builds on the power and flexibility of the initial PaperPort offering.
Anyone that uses PaperPort on a regular basis, in a desktop environment, realize the importance of being able to organize your electronic documents and information for easy retrieval. It’s easier, efficient and saves a lot of money; this application just builds on that— and the price is great.
To business professionals, having the ability to synchronize your important documents to the Internet using PaperPort Anywhere, other cloud storage options and being able to organize on the go will almost certainly be invaluable.
The release of the Nuance application seems to be targeted at the iPad at this time, but I would suspect that ultimately we could expect to see and android version of this application as well.
