Samsung Galaxy Note Gets Cloud Based Mark-Up App with Scribble

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a unique device somewhere between a smartphone and a tablet, and it comes with an interesting add-on called the S Pen. The S Pen is not just another capacitive stylus, but rather an active digitizer, which provides better accuracy, palm rejection, and pressure sensitivity.

Soonr, a cloud-based collaboration service, has announced a new app to take advantage of the S Pen that will allow users to mark-up documents stored in their Soonr cloud using the S Pen on the Galaxy Note.

The team at Soonr worked closely with Samsung to optimize Scribble for the Galaxy Note and take advantage of the accuracy of the S Pen. Users can write freehand in a variety of pen sizes and colors and add highlights on any document type then share those edits and notes with their team through the Soonr cloud.

Soonr provides cloud collaboration services with project management, commenting, versioning, and syncing tools. Scribble brings files stored in Soonr to the Galaxy Note for annotation and markup using the S Pen. Files are available both online and offline, and changes sync back automatically.

Saumsung will feature Scribble as an S Choice application in their app store. Exact release dates and pricing have not yet been confirmed.
