Yesterday I wrote about Killer Applications. The one that grabbed my attention today is StaffPad. Follow the link and watch the video (shown using a Surface Pro 3 pen) and see someone writing sheet music faster than you could do it with pen and paper.
This quote from the website captures the heart of pen computing applied to a human endeavour..
From the website: “StaffPad is a brand new class of notation app, designed to take advantage of the advanced pen and touch input found on Microsoft Surface* and other compatible Windows 8.1 devices. As you write notation using the pen, StaffPad recognises your handwritten music and converts it into a beautifully typeset score which you can further edit, playback, print and share….
*Surface 3, Surface Pro or compatible device required “
For some great insights about why the Pen (the Surface Pen) was an essential aspect of this application see: StaffPad Blog – Looking through windows
Check out these great opportunities.
