What's left is Mazec keyboard (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mazec/id943711253?mt=8&app=itunes) and Writepad I (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/writepad-i-handwriting-to-text/id363618389?mt=8&app=itunes).
Personally I use Writepad. Its reviews aren't super, but I was careful to select my letter forms and to turn on continuous writing, I find that customising my letter forms gives me recognition as good as Stylus' was. "Continuous" writing lets me accumulate a word or four, and review the recognition before inserting it by writing over the beginning of the line. With a little practice it became natural to review the recognition with half an eye and select the correct one if needed from the list WritePad presents -- much easier than correcting MyScript Stylus' occasional missed recognition or my misspelling.
I still have Stylus installed. It's superior for short emails and texts. OTOH, it can get confused when asked to do editing tasks -- which WritePad seldom does.
As for Mazec, it uses the same underlying recognition engine as Stylus, but I find its user interface inferior to either WritePad's or Stylus'. YMMV.
P.S. As far as I can tell, any handwriting recognition engine does better if I exaggerate the spaces between words and write with no slant.
