Evernote Launches Penultimate Handwriting App
(29th October 2013) – Despite the growing alternatives to the expression of ideas and information, nothing has really been able to replace the freedom and creative outlet that writing by hand has provided. Studies have shown that handwriting is linked to improved learning, memory, and idea generation. That is why Evernote, the company that helps you do everything better, has released the new Penultimate to create the most natural digital handwriting experience on an iPad.
Penultimate is the original and easiest-to-use handwriting app for iPad that combines the natural experience of pen and paper with the flexibility and syncing of Evernote.
With the new improvements, Penultimate has made jotting down your ideas easier and more natural than before. By rethinking the movements within the app and listening to user feedback over the years, they have included new zoom functions that let users swipe, pinch, and write without feeling constrained by the screen.
Everyone also has different ways of holding their pen, so if you are used to resting your wrist on the paper as you write, Penultimate will register it and block off entire sections of the screen to let you write the way you are used to.
These handwritten notes will have the added bonus of being saved directly into Evernote, making sure that you have everything saved and accessible from every mobile device, whether you are taking notes in class, charting out your next big idea, or journaling your thoughts.
The latest version of Penultimate is available in the iTunes App Store.
