Penultimate, one of the best handwritten note taking apps for the iPad, was updated earlier today with support for both Evernote and Dropbox. Being able to send your notes to these two popular cloud-based services will make it that much more convenient for its users. Here’s What’s New in version 3.3:
• Serious Dropbox integration: Send notebooks and pages directly to your Dropbox, or enable automatic backup to be sure you always have a copy of your notes in the cloud. Open Penultimate files from your Dropbox.
• Evernote support. Evernote’s handwriting recognition is a great fit for Penultimate users. You can send notebooks and notes to your account for searching there later. Very simple signup in the app if you want to give it a spin.
• Open new workflows by “Open”ing your notebooks and pages in other apps on iPad.
• Copied images can be pasted into Penultimate, and copied ink can be pasted into other apps.
• Now available in Chinese (simplified) and Korean.
• As always, many other improvements and updates.
The update is free for currents users and it’s still currently on sale for $0.99, a great price for those who those who prefer to take handwritten notes/doodles on their iPads.

UP AND RUNNING
When you first open your new copy of Penultimate, you’ll find a “welcome” notebook that will walk you through all of the major features. You’ll be scribbling and whizzing through your pages and notebooks in no time.
AMAZING INK AND PAPER
Your handwriting and drawing looks spectacular in bold gel ink. Our writing technology is second to none. Use colors or stick with classic inky black. Three different photorealistic paper styles are included, along with a magically effective eraser tool that’s always the right size. Want a special paper style? Import any image to create and share your own attractive template, or visit The Paper Shop in the app to see the latest convenient collections available for download.
KEEP IT TOGETHER
Store your thoughts in named notebooks for each topic, project, or category. Penultimate can manage as many notebooks as you can create, each with an infinite number of pages. View your list in a notebook carousel — or sort and scroll in a fast grid view. When your notebooks get large, you can browse quickly through all pages, or insert, delete, duplicate, and reorganize pages within and between notebooks.
Beneath its graceful exterior Penultimate is a powerful application. Our superior inking technology produces pen strokes that look better-than-real. The pioneering automatic Wrist Protection mode prevents most stray marks from appearing on a page for writers of all grips. Image import allows photo annotation, cataloging, and design work. Powerful ink selection and copy/paste is a touch away.
