Why not just type anyway ?

Well, you could, and you can - as long as you are at home, sitting down comfortably at a table or with a laptop on your lap, but, that is not when most of your best ideas arrive. You will not have a laptop open in a tube or on a bus, or walking down the street ( best not to walk, stand in a corner out of the way ) - these are the places inspiration will strike - and if you are not ready with SiWriter, away it goes again - as fleeting as a dream. Yes, you can use SiWriter in bed. Dream capturing works well and does not wake you up enough to stop you dreaming some more later.

Use SiWriter in meetings, taking minutes takes minutes not hours when you can read what you have written. Use SiWriter to record the massively important things your lecturers have to say ( I'm one ). When you get good at SiWriting, you won't even have to break eye contact with your mesmorising tutor and yet capture every word they say.

Only a VERY BAD SiWriter would make that may mistakes, but it shows what you can get away with. SiWriter is a note taker, not a word processor - you already have loads of them. This is the thing that makes the words that you process later ...

Make a note, date it, add to it, email it to your address - which you can configure from the front screen by selecting it in the normal iPad way - fill in the details with the IOS keyboard. You can use that to type in the main window too if you really want to, but what's the point of doing that ? It's so hard to type fast that way when the bus is bouncing you around or you have got nowhere to sit.

SiWriter - the way to remember what you thought you would never forget - but did.
