    I'm trying to find an app that I can use for note taking for school and I've been having problems with Notability. Does anyone know of a note taking app that has some sort of wrist/palm support feature that would allow me to have my hand on the iPad screen and be able to write with my stylus at the same time? All the apps I've tried only have a wrist spot at the bottom of the screen, and it is very uncomfortable and unhealthy to write for long periods of time with your hand raised and wrist resting and I don't want to end up with Carpal Tunnel. I just want to be able to write on my iPad in the same manner as I would on regular paper, and by that I mean same hand posture. Is this possible? Does anyone know of an app that would let me do that?

    I hope someone will post soon with some suggestions regarding apps with the feature(s) you need. In the meantime, I just wanted to offer that I've read/heard that you can place a towel or sheet of paper (some sort of barrier) under your hand so that the iPad will not "see" that it is there. You might experiment with this using the app you currently have, at least until you can find another app that works better for you.

    There are quite a few apps that do this all of which can be found by a quick search in the Internet or even just reading app descriptions of note taking apps on the app store. I often use 'Notes Plus' which has this hand function and works very well.

    Sorry, was that too much a Yankee expression? :) We poor left-handed folks spend much of our lives trying to exist in a right-handed world. Unlike most people many of us write with our hands curled over the top of what we're writing. Thus, the "wrist pad" should be placed above, not below the text area.

    Indeed it was, especially when I'm British ;). I see. I did wonder whether that what you were getting at.

    Yes, I noticed your location when I responded. Sorry 'bout that. Southpaw is indeed an American expression originally from baseball. Before night baseball a diamond was oriented with the pitcher facing west so the batter would not face the late afternoon sun. Especially in the early days when a ball was seldom changed during a game it became difficult enough to see as the game progressed. So a left-handed pitcher facing west would be throwing from the south. :)
