Handwrite – A new way to search on Google

Cool-and-Useful or Cool-but-Useless?

Although Google search by Voice is more useful and convenient than writing, there’re certain situations where writing is more practical such as in a noisy pub and a busy street to name a few. Google Handwrite will allow you to perform your searches by just writing letters, numbers, symbols or characters on your touchscreen with your fingers. Definitely a cool-and-useful feature 🙂
