The software is called Supernote, and is, essentially, a document authoring application that is being touted as the “future of note-taking.” The new app was distributed to Transformer and Slider owners earlier this month as part of Asus’ over-the-air (OTA) update for Android 3.2.1 also generally known as Honeycomb, the for-tablet version of the mobile platform.
