CellWriter is a handwriting recognition app for Linux computers with touchscreen displays. You configure the program by writing out some sample characters until CellWriter can recognize the way you write. This means that it might be tough for someone else to pick up your computer and use it right away, but it also means that CellWriter can at least theoretically be more accurate than handwriting recognition software designed to recognize all sorts of ways to draw the letter B.

A developer has ported CellWriter to work with the Maemo smartphone operating system. You can see a video of the Nokia N900 working with CellWriter after the break.

The video shows the training mode, as well as how you can use CellWriter to enter text in a notepad and several other applications including a Linux terminal.

CellWriter for Maemo is avialbale for download from the Maemo Garage.
