Last week Evernote updated the Penultimate app and made it available for free. Of course, I had to install it when I found out that it is available for free.
Penultimate provides a place for you to hand-write notes on your iPad. The app allows you to create multiple notebooks with multiple pages in each. You can change the color and size of the pen strokes that are created when you write in your notebooks. Each page in your notebook can include pictures that you have stored on your iPad or pictures that you take through the Penultimate app. The app provides the option to change the look of the virtual paper on which you write. You can copy and paste content from one page to another and from one notebook to another. Learn more in the video below.
All of your notes in Penultimate automatically synchronize with your Evernote account. I often see people holding up their iPads to take pictures of slides during talks. With Penultimate you can take notes about each of those slides and save them to your Evernote account. The app could be used this way by students to take notes during lectures.
