Penultimate is hugely popular. In fact, according to Apple, it’s
the #4 best-selling paid iPad app of all time. When you have such
a great product, the last thing you want to do is mess with it.
That’s why Penultimate creator, Ben Zotto, is joining Evernote to
head up future app development. Penultimate will stay a separate,
elegant application and will get many much-requested Evernote-y
improvements including full search and synchronization. Ben will
also lead the effort to put handwriting and digital ink
functionality into other Evernote products and platforms, so
you’ll see handwriting cross-pollination popping up everywhere.
