Title: UYH
Platform: iOS 4.3 or later
Cost:Free ($6.99 Gold package available)

UYH (Use Your Handwriting) is an app that allows users to write with their finger, instead of a keyboard, to take notes and create lists on an iPad or iPhone. It's a quick and easy way to write down what you, or the teens you work with, want to remember. The video below gives you an idea of how it works.

The app is free with a $6.99 upgrade (Gold) package available. The upgrade gives users more font options, more color options, and an ad free experience.

Teens might want to use UYH to create lots of different types of lists, and/or drawings and doodles.

You and the teens you work with can try out the free version, you probably don't need to pay for the Gold version, and see what you think.
