Best notes app for handwriting recognition
Just got the new iPad Pro. Any recommendations for a good note taking app with handwriting recognition that works well for someone with bad handwriting? I have messy handwriting so looking for something that can convert my scrawls to more readable text. Thanks.
I'm a big fan of GoodNotes because of its ability to work with PDF files containing hyperlinks (to other parts of the document). This allows for creating more advanced organizers and notebooks. But in terms of handwriting recognition, it isn't automatic... you write on the page, circle the handwritten text to select it, and then indicate you want to convert it to text. This creates a new selection that is text-based.
GoodNotes also has a macOS component that allows me to access my notes created on my iPad.
Nebo on the other hand allows direct handwriting to text conversion as well as setting a style to that text. I don't have much experience beyond that in Nebo so I don't know how well it works for other aspects of digital notetaking.

Has anyone had success using note taking apps with a non-Pro iPad (2017)? I’ve attempted it in several different apps with a passive stylus - one with the small tip and clear disk, as well as one with the usual soft nub - with pretty sad results.
I don’t really even need translation to text, just the ability to write legibly in the apps. I’m assuming the passive stylus is the weak point, but would like some input from others who have tried this.
