  1. @jonnyC, the Bluetooth styluses connect to specific apps, not to the iPhone as a whole. You can turn it on and use it as an ordinary stylus, or connect it within an app that supports Bluetooth styluses. Unfortunately, Evernote is not such an app, and Penultimate doesn't run on iPhones. For a list of apps that will connect to a Jot BT Stylus, check their website at http://www.adonit.net/jot-ready-apps/. So -- it's not a defect, it's the way non-Apple Bluetooth styluses work. They don't connect to the device as a whole, they connect to specific apps which have a connection method inside. Yo
  2. All the Bluetooth styluses including all the Adonit Jot line require BT v. 4.0 or newer. The oldest iPad with this BT version is iPad 3rd gen. So if you have iPad 1 or iPad 2 you are out of luck. All the iPad Minis are newer so they all work.
  3. Here's another way to do it: BE SURE BLUETOOTH IS TURNED ON on your iPad AND YOUR STYLUS IS CHARGED. Open the Penultimate app. Get to the screen where it shows your list of notes in Penultimate, but you're not actually editing a note. It should be mostly blue, have a few note icons, and say Penultimate in the top center. Tap on the circle with a person's head inside it (top left corner.) You should now see a screen that has a button named "Settings." Tap that button. You should now see a dialog box. There should be an item named "Jot Script Evernote Stylus Setup." Tap that item. Turn on you
  4. MyScript Smart notes or Notes Plus (which uses the MyScript engine) are possibly best at this. Not the best Evernote integration, but if you're going to edit the text anyway, it's not much more overhead to export the result. You can try Smart Notes for free. I'd suggest the PhatWare products, but their Jot support is so bad that I've turned it off. I'm better off with my cheap mesh tip stylus. Yes, there are apps that claim Jot support but are worse at it than Penultimate.
  5. Nope, not Apple. Not iOS 8. No, Evernote shot itself in the foot with this one. The Penultimate "upgrade" is the source of many, many complaints on this forum. It might be possible to get your "old" Penultimate back -- here's how in this thread: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/75446-how-to-get-old-version-back-must-read/ For alternative apps, try this thread: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/75511-please-anyone-suggest-a-new-note-taking-app/ I shared your anger when I first "upgraded" to Penultimate 6.0.0 back on Nov. 13. Now I am simply resigned. Good luck in your quest to
  6. Well, the loss of the camera feature is nothing you're doing wrong. Penultimate's November upgrade pretty well broke the app, and two bug fix updates later, it's still unusable in a production environment. here are my thoughts, FWIW: The size limit to notebooks is an Evernote thing. Yes, upgrading to Evernote premium would help I've switched to the Noteshelf app for my notetaking needs, and just ran a test to see how it responds to the demands you're discussing. First, Noteshelf integration to Evernote is just like that of old Penultimate except that you will need to explicitly connect y
  7. 1. Start or open a note. 2. You will see two circles at the upper right of your screen. Tap the one that has the image of a technical pen. 3. You will now see 12 circles across the top of your screen. The leftmost circle has three dots in it. I will call that Circle #1. 4. Count over to circle #4. That circle has the image of a fat pen (supposed to look like a stylus, I think.) Tap that circle. Now you should see a box with controls that will let you connect your Jot stylus. Hope this helps!
  8. This is absolutely not the case. There is a notebook now called "Penultimate" that contains very old versions of my data from the last time I synced - over a year and a half ago - some of which should not exist anymore, and many of which are missing because they are newer. I have scrolled through each and every one of these notes, and it is clear that all data not synced to Evernote has been deleted. There is also a notebook with my old journal in it strangely called "Titanic." Not sure where that came from, but my notes aren't there, either. I have scrolled through each and every note I have,
  9. @ScottLougheed, you keep saying "the metaphors are aligned now," like it's a good thing. The fact is that they're not. The correct alignment would have been Penultimate page = Evernote note, Penultimate notebook = Evernote notebook. The wrong decision was made with the Penultimate notebook = Evernote note, way back when evernote integration was first added to Penultimate. As a retired software developer, i recognize that this was the easy implementation. That doesn't make it the right one. What I suspect that @ray chamnpney would like to do is to be able to email a single page (or "section
  10. DATA LOSS. I didn't experience it myself, but I can feel for those who did. The switch away from storing data locally in the Penultimate app to storing data in Evernote accounts, with local echo, was, well, inevitable. Evernote sells cloud services, not apps. I get that. I prepared for that. But not everyone is a cynical old software developer like me. Releasing a version that destroys local data without warning is indefensible. Many customers had automatic updates turned on. Warnings in the App Store would not have helped these unfortunates. Only a proper email warning announcement, that sa
  11. Moleskine: yes, they're pricey. For some strange reason, they don't seem want to be in the sticker business. Free premium: If you already have premium, you can enter the code and get points instead. Then you can extend your subscription, or get an extra GB of uploads some month. Stickers: I put one of each type onto its own 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch piece of white paper. So now I have little movable smart stickers. I place the ones I want to use on the page before I take a picture with my ipad. Afterwards, I just pick them up and move them to the next page. No more sticker drought. Extra Larg
