Best Reviews on Penultimate
Penultimate (for iPad)
Intro: For casual drawing on an iPad, Penultimate is second to none. It's fast, friendly, flexible, and a bargain. If you've ever doodled in a notebook, using the app should be second nature. When it comes time to share, you can e-mail a sketch or an entire notebook without leaving the app, or pipe your pad through a projector for group collaboration. While the app's touch-based sophistication will no doubt impress consumers, but when paired with a touch stylus like the Kensington Virtuoso, Penultimate can scale to the professional demands of engineers, architects, and industrial designers...
Final words: In its pursuit of elegant simplicity, Penultimate fails to cross a few Ts and dot a few Is. The ability to open and annotate PDF files, convert handwriting to text, and choose from a swathe of styluses and color controls would broaden Penultimate's appeal. However, these are missed opportunities, not major shortcomings. Penultimate accomplishes everything it sets out to do, and what it does, it does in the tidiest script. It performs admirably with a finger, and, paired with touch stylus, lets you release your Rembrandt. Unlimited notebooks mean you can doodle like Da Vinci. And, at a buck, it's one of the least expensive handwriting apps available, yet packs high-roller features like Wrist Protection, PDF compression, and VGA presentation. For those seeking digital flex, paper ease, and iPad allure, pencil in Penultimate.

Review: Penultimate puts multiple notebooks on your iPad
Intro: Penultimate, by Cocoa Box Design, aims to bring the analog act of note taking to the purely digital iPad. In recent days, the application has enjoyed the number one sales slot on the App Store, as well as a short time in the top 10 grossing apps. However, as we all know by now, not all that glitters is gold. Does Penultimate stack up to its lofty App Store success?...
Final words: Penultimate has some significant flaws: it lacks colors, pen diameters, zoom, and the text is a little blurry. It does, however, has many nice features that make up for some of its shortcomings: it’s fairly attractive, allows you to maintain multiple notebooks, and even lets you export entire notebooks. In the end, though, you are still taking notes with your finger. If you can get past that, Penultimate serves its purpose well.
Penultimate Review - Attractive note-taker is easy to use, but leaves something to be desired
Intro: Penultimate from Cocoa Box Design is a note-taking app created to replace paper-based notebooks. Using this $3 iPad app, you can create, organize, and share your notes all on Apple’s tablet. The app is attractive and easy to use, but still, it leaves something to be desired...
Final words: Penultimate is good for quickly sketching out ideas or short notes; its best feature is the fact that you can organize everything in separate notebooks. But as a note-taker, it falls a little bit short.
Penultimate for iPad- app review
Intro: My latest productivity app this week? Penultimate for iPad. There are several competing “free hand” note taking apps on our favorite tablet device. After our recent TiPb at Work Post, I thought I would see if Penultimate tries to separate itself from other note apps on the iPad. Is being simple with just enough of a “feature” to get the job done enough?...
Final words: I like Penultimate for what it does; it is a simple no-frills note taking tool. I find there to be a couple of irritations however. In landscape view, you are given a cropped view of the page and you can flick the right side of the screen to scroll towards the top and bottom. I feel there has to be a better way to implement this, or, give me completely different functionality in landscape. The other issue is that there is no way to zoom to give yourself more space; the notebook is it’s real size and there is no zooming. I would have liked to have seen a pinch-zoom function that increased the size of your note area. Ah, perhaps in a future release. Regardless, Penultimate is a beautiful fun and easy note taking tool that most of use can find a use for in our busy lives.
iPad App Review: Penultimate
Intro: Penultimate is an app for the iPad that allows you to write, sketch and draw almost anything you want to, simply using the touch of your finger on the iPad’s screen. The app is similar to the notes app that you get with the iPhone and iPod Touch, however, it’s more like ‘notes on steroids’ as it allows you to do so much more than was ever possible with notes...
Final words: This app is perfect for business users, especially people such as graphic designers as it allows you to instantly transfer any ideas that you may have to the device, much like jotting your ideas down on a piece of paper. The app is available from the app store for just .99 and we feel that this is definitely worth your money.
Penultimate for iPad review - We see if note-taking app, Penultimate, of which there are now plenty, deserves its current popularity
Intro: The business and productivity-case for the iPad has been made stronger by a number of top note-taking and word processing apps. Pages is one of the most notable, but comes at a comparatively expensive price, whilst Evernote is another impressive piece of kit with some added cloud capabilities...
Final words: Nevertheless, given the cheap price, some decent sharing capabilities and smooth overall feel of the app, Penultimate is another case in point for the iPad being both fun and business-worthy simultaneously.
