    Ok so Joe B. has stated no new features will come to Windows 10 for Mobile. No worry !!!!! Just don't pay attention to Debbie Downers who want to toss in the towel and give up outright.

    Ok before I lay this out, let me say if your screen is a 720 version your results will not be as good as a 1080 and above. I know as I have tested Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 550 and yes it wirks but not as well as higher rez higher quality screen.
    So this may be of interest to owners of Alcatel Idol 4S, Acer Jade Primo, Lumia 950/950XL, HP Elite X3. Also older Models like the Lumia 1520 ( both 8.1 and 10 if apps available).

    Ok First Ink and Doodles/Notes with Pen input, as you know Phones do not have the ability to use a Surface Pen as they don't support Ntrig/Wacom version of the Microsoft Pen.

    We can use what is called "Fine Tip Active Stylus" much like the one I use, Adonit Jot Script, however you may not want to spend as much as I did. The Jot Script is now no longer made so I have looked and seen the price drop well under $100. No matter as there are others for around $40 ( less when on sale).

    There are a number of Active Stylus available for all kinds of price ranges, but the 1 thing to check before you buy is....Was it made to work with iPhone/iPad? If yes it works with Windows Phone !!!!! Just so I am clear, I am not saying this is Galaxy Note type pen work, just that you can use a Pen and if you have neat printing ( unlike me) you will see good results. Also this is not for digital artists. Quick fast dirty doodles and notes.

    Now you may ask.....How did I Ink in Edge Mobile....Well I didn't, but I did doodle on a screen cap of Edge in Notebook Pro V 2.0. I imported the cap as the page then doodled on it in the app on the Phone. So anything you can screen cap you can then doodle on.....MSN Sports

    There are a number of Apps in the Microsoft Store that support Pen input, which can give you a Faux Ink ability..
    Notebook Pro V2.0 ( Free with low cost add ons, but free is full feature mostly)

    Squid

    Now for the new News....Ink when Phone is in Continuum Dock.

    It took me by surprise and I was left with my Jaw on the floor, but it work and I'll have my hands on one soon :)

    Plugs into the USB of your Dock and just works.

    I will report more once I have had a chance to play around. But there are a few of these types of devices out there, again at many different price ranges.

    Niice, looking forward to more info.

    I have a fairly inexpensive graphics tablet myself so it's making a buying a cheap elite x3 not a bad prospect.

    Well I know in One Note when in Continuum drawing/Ink goes active so it should be interesting to see what I can do to make a portable Office that slides into one side if a book bag. Now that I have a working HDMI to VGA dongle this will be interesting :)

    Just to show Pen input on the Acer Jade is good, I always feel my printing/writing is never a good pitch. I handed my Phone and Pen to 3 different people I work with, asked them to just write or print "The Quick Brown Fox", and gave them no getting used to the feeling time.

    All 3 have not used Stylus or Galaxy Note

    At least this way now you can see my printing is just the dog's breakfast !!!! Active stylus can work well if you have some penmanship skill !!

    It enables people to sign documents electronically, with their signature as opposed to printing out the document, then signing it then scanning said document, emailing that document over to the other party and the process repeats until the document is completely signed.

    So you end up with paper waste, poorly scanned copies which are hardly legible and emails with irrelevant subject headings etc.

    With products like docusign, once all parties have signed you get an electronic copy (pdf) automatically emailed. So everyone ends up with a complete copy without the fuss and paper waste. So less trees need to be cut down to create paper, as sadly many companies refuse to use recycled paper on wide scale.

    'That's cool!! I have been wondering when the "Paperless Work place " was going to start. I've been hearing about it from the 1980's

    I know in my factory with all the paper work shuffled about this could save both money in printing and trees !!!

    Thanks to Reddit user ski_9130, who let me know about a good Note app for doodles/notes/reminders free in store called Inkodo.



    It's a good app to pair with a Pen !!!!

    A couple of reviews for Universal Stylus by an Artist ( Mostly uses iOS/Android ), however for Windows Phones with 1080 screens and above you should see the same results. Just keep in mind with some Stylus makers price does not = quality.
    Adonit Snap $40


    Pendorra Stylus Pen $40

    Just in case anyone is interested.....I'm still on Twitter trying to let Windows Phone users find a little good news if you want to join in on the fun.

    I am using a hash tag to spark some hope maybe #MyWindowsPhone ... Plays, Works or what ever you think may make an insider/user smile and maybe not give up.
