Graphite for Tablet PCs released

Hans released Graphite! I’ve been using this app on and off for a while and I’m glad to see it’s finally available for everyone! The code and the appilcation are free. Graphite is great during meetings for drawing diagrams and taking whiteboard style notes. It senses the boxes you freehand and lets you drag them and their contents around.

From the FAQ:

  • What is Graphite? Graphite is the Spiffy Codename for a tablet PC application for drawing and manipulating flowcharts and other box-and-line graphs.
  • Why not use Visio? Good question. I use Visio at work all the time to create system architecture diagrams. The trouble with Visio is that it’s not really designed for real-time note taking. I wanted a fast and fluid app that I could use while in a meeting.

Requires Tablet Edition (XP or Vista) and .NET 2.0. The UI is even UMPC friendly (although the shape detection is iffy on UMPCs until the next build).
