For those of you looking to run your favorite AOSP ROMs such as AOKP, CM10.1, or even ParanoidAndroid ROM, you might want to learn that there are S-Note app alternatives to keep your S-Pen touch-sensitivity and note feature working.
Now, this will not replace the whole S-Note app with “all” of the S-Pen features like calculating math equations or adding new videos but will give you the ability to use your S-Pen for note-taking, drawing pictures along with S-Pen touch sensitivity.
Memo app by Nathan Garside – This is probably my favorite of them all. It’s a simple, lightweight note app that allows you to take notes with the same pens/brushes you use on the original S-Note app.
Papyrus app – This is another note taking app that detects your S-Pen to take notes.
G Note app – This is another app similar to the Memo app.
Personally, I don’t use S-Note app other than jotting down my ideas or letting the kids to draw stuff. And if you don’t need all the bells and whistles of S Note app, you can still take notes fine using these apps on AOSP ROMs.
Of course, you will lose multi-window and other TouchWiz features (Smart-stay/rotation) but there will be some sacrifices when running AOSP ROMs.
At the least, app developers are developing more apps that makes use of the S-Pen, it shouldn’t be too long before more apps are developed for the S-Pen. At the worst, you can always go back to your TouchWiz-based ROMs.
