Martin Koss 1 Posted November 30, 2013 Share Posted November 30, 2013 Hello everyone. It's just my second post here - only just joined the forum after being a premium Evernote user since - well, as long as I've had an Evernote account which is many years now... I wanted to express my 'issues' with Penultimate which I keep trying, and keep ditching... again... Although I love the way my notes are instantly sync'd with Evernote so I can see them on my Mac right away, that's the end of the unbeatable features. Before I crack on with the 'issues' I should point out that I keep coming back to NoteShelf. I'm sure there are plenty of other apps that people prefer but NoteShelf is my preferred one for... well, many reasons. Anyway, why I'm ditching Penultimate, again: What happened to folders/stacks? Wasn't that a feature in a previous version? To have loads of notes there needs to be some way of grouping them, stacking them or having folders. The ink is too thick... Way too thick to heave nice readable handwriting. Everything looks like it was written with a felt tip pen rather than a nice thin biro. Not nice on the screen. Not easy to read at a quick glance. Still only one style of pen! What? Lagging behind all the competition there! The odd zoom thing that was introduced after years of people asking "where's the zoom?"Oh dear. Oh deary deary me indeed. Whoever came up with that needs to learn a bit about usability for sure.Any idea why not a single other handwriting app uses such a daft method of zoom? 'Cos it ain't nice to use. (IMO). Wrist Guard! Fail. Years ago when I first used it I was impressed - but since then, while other apps have moved on and got better, Penultimate seems to have lagged way behind and the constant need to pick up the erasure is annoying. Penultimate was (I think) the best for quality handwriting years ago but it's not now. Too many bits missing, too many blobs from the hand touching the screen... Spent loads on expensive Stylus Pens and still, Penultimate is the weak link. So, there ya go guys. My feedback on Penultimate so far. I love Evernote and I love what Penultimate should be, and thought I should share my thoughts. Cheers. Martin Link to comment
