  1. You expect us to be grateful for this worthless update to the botched re-working of Penultimate? As of right now, all I know is an app that I depended on for work was re-introduced without warning, to useless, completely dysfunctional app. After this update I decided to keep my faith that Evernote would realize its mistake and quickly backtrack to the previous (functional) version. Now with the new update, the app doesn't even perform its most basic functionalities. I'm using the app on iOS 8 with an iPad Air and the thing crashes, loses my notes (I just spent an hour taking notes on something and had the app crash, only to lose everything I had written today).

     

    I'm a premium customer, and I am very seriously considering calling off my dependence on Evernote. What are they going to decide to "update" next? What if I can't access my important documents in Evernote?

     

    Did you even open this app on an iPad before releasing it? What kind of irresponsible people are working at this company?

     

    You need to fix this, Evernote. The survival of your company (and the loyalty of your customers) depends on it......

    I'm also still having experiencing repeated crashes, losing hours of work a day

    Additional issues:

     

    - Having the buttons on the writing service is a challenge. Half the time when I go to select a button (say the eraser) I end up writing a dot on my paper and not getting the tool I selected.

    - The next line button doesn't jump down to the next available line, I tend to end up at an odd halfway spot

    - Odd position for the next line button, I'm writing left to right, so why is the next line button on the left side of the screen? (also the opposite of a standard keyboard)

    - Zoom box should not start moving until you start writing 

    - Having problems with 'c's and 'o's, lots of times they end up looking like 'l'

     

     

    Thanks for your feedback.

     

    The next release will have zoom box improvements that will be more responsive your handwriting. We're looking into the other issues you mentioned too.

     

    You also mentioned that the app is crashing - can you provide details (hardware, OS version, what you had been doing in the app, etc.) to help troubleshoot?

    Now crashing while moving print around in normal view, erasing in normal view, writing in normal view, lost another 1.5hrs of work today

    Thanks for the continued feedback. I've updated the OP to reflect issues that we're currently reviewing and/or working on addressing:

     

    Reported issues under review

    We’re reviewing and passing along feedback over to the development team. Here’s a list of items that are presently under review:

    • Finding your place within longer notes
    • Page indicators
    • Ink rendering is thicker (different)
    • Two finger scrolling isn’t working
    • Drift needed, more space for zoom box
    • Zoom box should stop when you stop writing
    • Clear all function should be added
    • Landscape papers not showing up in landscape

    We should be able to navigate from the zoom box too. For instance, if we use two fingers to swipe left or right in the zoom box at the bottom that we write in, the zoom area should move left/right (similar to the zoom in previous version). We need the same with up and down moving of the zoom box. Since I write a lot of equations on multiple lines, this is essential for me. (The drift feature doesn't cut it (even if it did work properly) because I often have text around symbols and need to move my writing area manually.)

    Can we get a timeframe for when we can expect changes? The app is currently not in a usable state; it would be nice to know when it might be again.

  5. Unfortunately I have to agree with the negative feedback. I have been using penultimate for a couple hours a day for the past four months and now I can hardly use it. 

    1. The speed at which the screen scrolls when zoomed in is incredibly difficult to work with and the fact that it continues scrolling when I am not writing makes it difficult to take notes

    2. The scroll no longer pauses when I select the eraser or hit the undo button, how am I supposed to correct my writing if the screen has scrolled past?!

    3. The lack of thumbnail displays for different pages makes it very difficult to find specific notes, I have some notebooks based on 18hr lectures

    4. The two finger scroll is very inaccurate and tends to result in me putting lines through my notes

    5. The tool menu is very difficult to work with, and when expanded covers my notes

     

    I could live with most of this, but the scrolling issues have made it nearly impossible for me to take any notes. Please revert back to the previous version while the issues are addressed.

     

    After using it some more I have noticed that aside from being very difficult to use, the app has crashed multiple times and I continually lose parts of my work
