Microsoft Plumbago For Sketching And Handwriting

Microsoft Launches Plumbago, A Paper App Competitor That Lets You Sketch & Handwrite Notes

Sarah Perez | February 19, 2016

Microsoft’s Office suite already has a popular note-taking app with OneNote, but today the company is turning its attention to how note-taking should work on tablets that support stylus and touch-based input. The company has now released Plumbago, a digital notebook application for Windows 8.1 and 10 tablets that allows users to handwrite text, highlight, plus sketch and draw using either pen or pencil strokes across a device’s screen.
The app, like many of Microsoft’s new releases, is the latest to emerge from the company’s internal incubator, Microsoft Garage. And also like many Garage projects, it takes inspiration from well-known apps already on the market. For example, in Plumbago’s case, the app appears to be an attempt to compete with Paper by FiftyThree, a top note-taking and sketching application for iOS devices.
