Handwriting fixed for me with iOS 8.0.2

iOS and iPadOS

Greetings! Hand writing bug is fixed with the latest IOS 8 update. Awesome man, it's working fine on my 5s. Anyone else find the joy?
remember to select the hand writing feature under settings, general, accessability, voiceover, router.

I thought that you should know before trying this that the feature worked on my 5S even with 8.0. It still does not work on my iPad mini, and so I think it is not actually fixed. Just FYI, and so on.

The Handwriting bug still remains in the iOS 8.0.2. There a few number of people that are able to use the Handwriting feature even in the intial release of the iOS 8.0. However, it still exist and I for one have this problem on all three of my devices. It was hopeful there but that is not the case at this time.

Well, your results may vary but I do want to note that the feature was broken on my 5s after the IOS 8 update. so I guess it's a hit and mis thing. I for one, can tell you that it was not working and now it is...rocker

Just brain storming here but, I did not install the 8.0.01 update. I went from 8.0 to 8.0.02. I wonder if that makes a difference? Curious to hear results from others who did the same on there units.

I only updated 1 device considering the amount of accessibility issues.
This bug was on my ipod 5G running 8.0, still exists for me on 8.02.

My handwriting feature only works for lower case letters. The Upper case, punctuation and numbers options are no longer available or accessible to me. Is anyone else having this problem too?
