Penultimate 2.1: Now With More Natural Ink, Smoother Pen

We reviewed Penultimate for iPad when it first came out in April, a few weeks after the release of the tablet. Back then, Penultimate had a huge success and was one of the finest sketching apps for iPad which, thanks to the “fresh” factor of the iPad, managed to gain thousands of users.

Over time, though, many sketching applications came out with more complete feature sets and integration with online services. For instance, I’m using Noteshelf as my default handwriting / sketching app.

A new version of Penultimate was released last week, which doesn’t add support for additional online services but brings finer and smoother pens. The app’s digital ink now feels more natural, almost as natural as Noteshelf’s. Penultimate has come as long way, but I’m still waiting to see it bringing all the options and functionalities available in other applications.

Penultimate is available at $3.99 in the App Store.
