Ok I found a way to restore the previous version of Penultimate EVEN if you have not backed up to iTunes in the past. This won't work for everyone, but is at least another option. What you need is An iPad or iPad mini that is not on iOS 8 (iOS 7 preferably)Logged into your iTunes account. On the iPad running on iOS 7, download Penultimate You will be prompted to install the previous version (Penultimate 6.0 only works on iOS 8) - Say OK Download it, and then sync this iPad to your computer On your current iPad, delete Penultimate 6.0 Plug it into your computer, and then go to Apps on iPad, find the old version, and install! It is basically the same steps everyone has been suggesting, but with the caveat that you can still install the old version on an iOS 7 device, and then get it working from there. So if you have a friend, wife, or just have an old iPad around, sign into your iTunes account and you will be golden!
