On March 2, Evernote announced via its official blog that the company’s operations and security team had “discovered and blocked suspicious activity on the Evernote network,” an issue it indicated appeared to be “a coordinated attempt to access secure areas of the Evernote Service.”
Following this official announcement, Evernote, (who acquired Penultimate in May last year, seeing Penultimate creator, Ben Zotto, join Evernote to head up future app development at the company), has released a security update to Penultimate this week.
The new update (4.0.3) requires that users of the app reset their account password immediately. This action, the company notes, is just a precaution based on recent events.
As part of the Evernote family of products, Penultimate will quickly become one of the core productivity apps on your iPad. Every Penultimate note is synced to your Evernote account automatically, and every detail of the user interface has been designed and refined to be simple and intuitive with no complicated or cluttered settings.
