Jojoba, I see that your location is "Europe". Presumably you won't have an American handwriting then. I wouldn't recommend WritePad in that case. The handwriting recognition in Notes Plus worked reasonably well for my French handwriting. You can test it via the free (I think) app MyScript Memo. Check the Notes Plus website for details. It's been a while since I used the app, so things may have changed.
But to be honest, I just don't see the point, personally, of handwriting recognition, so I'm probably not the best person to give advice on that.
