iPad and Handwriting Recognition App for Plant Listing in the Field

The iPad now has a good app for handwriting recognition and I would like to know if anyone has tried it in the context of taking plant lists in the field.

See: http://www.macworld.com/article/152136/2010/06/writepad_ipad.html

My ultimate goal would be to have an app that would produce a list by entering any part of the genus or species and any synonym.  As you entered the genus or species it would suggest species you are writing and you could select the proper one to add to the list as you walk along. If you write an old synonym because you are not up on the current taxonomy it would display the most up-to-date name to select.  The running list would display on one side of the iPad so you could go back and change anything too. Maybe someday . . . . – Steve Young
