Features Penultimate

Making the experience of pen and paper much more productive, Penultimate allows you to choose from a number of paper styles or create personalised paper by exporting onto a page. Convenient for those ‘hand-written essays’ you’re due to hand in, Penultimate could well become your new best friend.

The app permits you to make all types of handwritten notes on your mobile with the ability to access them later on any device. The app syncs with all the devices and the changes appear automatically on all of them. There are no limits on how you take your notes so you can rather write, draw, or make graphs.

That said, the app works better if you have a stylus. Besides, the app offers you several brushes for writing or drawing and you can change the size and the color of them. You can change the look of the “paper” you’re writing on and make it lined or squared.

You can also attach the pics and the links to your notes. Therewith, you can mark your notes with keywords for easy searching. You can also categorize the notes as you want and set up group access to them.
