iPad pencil for gospel library

Postby wmetzelar » Sun Jun 11, 2017 12:48 pm

I'm curious....

Does anyone with an iPad Pro use the Apple Pencil to be able to write notes in the gospel library app?

Gospel Library doesn't currently have a way to store handwritten notes. iOS 11, coming later this year, will make working with handwriting on iOS a little easier, but there would still be some work to be done in Gospel Library (and the back-end sync service) if it were to eventually support handwriting.

I am not as interested in sorting handwritten notes. I just want to use the Apple Pencil to do basic highlighting. Is that possible?

Highlighting is possible with the Apple Pencil, but only in apps that support it (like Apple's iBooks). Unfortunately, Gospel Library doesn't support it. You could send it in as a feature request using the Send Feedback button in Gospel Library settings.

EDIT: Actually, it looks like you can select text and create highlights with the Apple Pencil by long-pressing to select a word, then dragging the selection handles – the same as using your finger. But there's nothing special beyond that.

This would be a great feature at some point Not really looking for needing OCR for any notes, but for making notes like you do on paper scriptures this would be nice. Ready to beta test if it ever makes it into the feature list.

Thanks for all that you all do. Gospel Library is a great app.
