San Francisco, California – Penultimate, the original and still easiest-to-use handwriting app for iPad, is today introducing deep integration with popular third-party web services, Dropbox and Evernote. The latest version enables users to easily bring cloud sharing, backup, and handwriting search into their workflows.
Penultimate lets users send notebooks and pages to Dropbox – a popular free service that facilitates the sharing, syncing, and backup of files across computers and devices – and import existing notebook files. Users can share PDFs or native notebook files with other Dropbox users to collaborate on projects, share ideas, or simply view notes on other devices later.
Penultimate now also includes an easy-to-use automatic Dropbox backup system: with a simple switch, users can always have a full set of up-to-date individual notebook and paper files saved in their Dropbox should disaster strike their computers or iPads.
Evernote, another popular free service, is known for its best-in-class handwriting recognition and search, making it a great fit for Penultimate users. Users can link to an Evernote account and then send notebooks or pages to the service. Penultimate optimizes the output for Evernote’s recognition engine, enabling users to find those notes again within Evernote.
Penultimate, known for its high-quality user interface, doesn’t skimp on the details with these integrations. Users can select Dropbox remote files and folders (and create new ones) with all the easy-to-use visual polish that users expect of professional, reliable software. Smart handling of document replacement is offered for both Dropbox and Evernote; users sending updated versions of the same notebook can choose to replace the existing version in the service rather than adding a new document.
“Penultimate is excellent on its own, and now it integrates well with a modern productivity workflow,” said Ben Zotto, the developer of Penultimate. “I’m very excited by our top-notch Dropbox integration, and can’t wait to see the value people get from the Evernote service with their handwritten notes.”
Penultimate is also now introducing full localizations in simplified Chinese and Korean, in addition to seven other supported languages.
Since its release, Penultimate for iPad has achieved the #1 sales position in the iTunes App Store multiple times, in the US and many other countries. It was recently featured in Apple’s “iTunes Rewind 2011” Top 10 iPad app list for the year.
Penultimate is the original and best-selling handwriting app on iPad. It combines beautiful, best-in-class digital ink with an unusually clean, focused interface. Attractive and powerful, Penultimate also offers advanced automatic Wrist Protection, photo and image support, custom paper creation, import/export of native notebooks for collaboration, third-party cloud service support, and video-out projection capability, as well as standard sharing and printing options. Users love Penultimate’s uncluttered professionalism, and the app is seen equally in board rooms, classrooms and living rooms. Penultimate is available in English and eight other languages, including Japanese, Italian, and German.
