Latest Samsung Notes app update brings handwriting to text and various other Galaxy Note 10 specific features

Samsung Notes is a widely popular app for taking notes on Samsung devices. It has more credibility with the Galaxy Note series devices because of the almighty S-pen.

We all know the feature that differentiates the Samsung Galaxy S-series from the Note series is the S-pen. Previously, with the older generation Note devices, the S-pen had limited functionality.

Cut to now, it has become one of the most prominent features of the Note devices as with the help of the S-pen you can now capture images from a distance, all thanks to the Bluetooth enabled S-pen (Note 9 onwards).
