Also dropping from its usual price this afternoon is Evernote’s popular handwriting app, Penultimate. The app, (designed exclusively for iPad), first made waves shortly after its debut on April 15, 2010, due to its approach to the natural handwriting experience.
Created to allow digital stokes to look like they have been physically drawn on paper, the app allows users to both take notes and keep sketches of the things, places, people, or ideas they may wish to remember, then allowing for the sharing of this “breakthrough” idea or important note with others, through the Evernote network.
Updating to version 4.0, today, (and sporting a brand-new redesign), Penultimate now includes full support for ‘Evernote Sync,’ meaning you can save all of your Penultimate notes to your Evernote account to keep, view, and search them across every device where you have Evernote installed.
Alongside this support also arrives the ability to search your handwritten notes with Evernote, too. Evernote’s powerful handwriting recognition system now allows for the real-time search of your Penultimate notes, so you’ll never “lose” the information you may have to look for in the future.
Other Changes In This Version
- Remember Everything: Evernote stores all of your Penultimate notes forever, ensuring that everything, from random doodles to important diagrams, are available any time you need them.
- Redesigned: Now sporting a lovely new design.
- Improved, sharper ink on retina displays.
- More languages: Available for the first time in Russian and Traditional Chinese.
Acquired by Evernote in May of last year, after executives at the firm reportedly liked the look of what the app could bring to the company’s existing “remembering” services, the new Penultimate is available FREE for a limited-time.
