    Have you tried Penultimate since the most recent upgrade? Yes, it was pretty much unusable previously, but now works well.
  2. Happily I am now confident to use penultimate on a daily basis. I have suffered no crashes since this upgrade. The 2 finger scroll no longer feels unresponsive and fragile. The zoom box speed is fine for me, and unlike some I have really taken to this feature. The responsiveness of writing is acceptable, better than before. For the way I like to take notes penultimate is back to being the best. It has been an interesting month or two trying several other apps, including typing notes direct from keyboard in to evernote. However, I am happier with penultimate. Thank you.
  3. Yes, just spotted that. Would be more useful now to close off this thread and just post regarding issues relating to version 6.0.3. First impressions of this new update are good. PLEASE USE NEW THREAD FOR ISSUES RELATING TO 6.0.3 SO WE DONT MIX ISSUES RELATING TO THE NEW VERSION. CHEERS
  4. Another week gone. Not used the app that much as I'm on pen and paper much more now. just one crash this week and the usual loss of a few minutes notes. Interestingly the crash report only seems to come up when it shuts in the background when the lock screen has appeared. When it crashed in use there was no message asking if I wanted to send a crash report, so maybe evernote are completely unaware of any issues other than through forums like this. Anyway, I still want penultimate to be the stable app it once was. I have no real issue with functionality - I have not taken to other apps such as noteshelf, notability and goodnotes that I've toyed with - the way I write, penultimate is better.
  5. Over the past 2 days I have had no crashes (that I have spotted) or loss of content. I also notice that on a couple of occasions when starting penultimate I had a message to say the app had quit unexpectedly and an option, which I accepted, to send a crash report. Hopefully if it happens again there will be something in the report. I'll see what next week brings.
  6. Point taken and well made. I had initially found myself also typing 'loosing' but corrected it. Sadly I missed the 'loose'. I ended up googling it as I couldn't decide if I was just going mad.
  7. Day 3 saw 2 crashes of the app. Both occurred when 2 finger scrolling a note of 10 pages or so. On one crash I was lucky and didn't lose anything. It had been a few minutes since I'd last written. Sadly on the second I lost a few sentences of notes.
  8. Had 2 days of general use since rebooting and reinstalling. I have had 1 crash with loss of the last few minutes of notes. Feels a little less flaky than previously but clearly still not reliable enough for long term use. Currently using pen and paper if it's critical and penultimate for scribbles. Hope there's a more stable version sometime soon. I've also registered to beta test as I want penultimate back to being the best.
  9. Cheers Bob. I have done that today. Only light use but no crashes yet. Should get a better test at work tomorrow. Dave
  10. Wish I could help but I am suffering occasional crashes, with sync turned on. I was hoping if I turned it off it might be more stable but appears not from your post. Let me know if it gets better for you! Cheers Dave
  11. I'm on the latest version of penultimate and ios8 on an ipad2 Kevin. It didn't help sadly. Had a crack with noteshelf today but didn't like it too much.
  12. I am getting so frustrated with the stability of penultimate. I use everyday for work. Several times a day the app is crashing and I lose the last 5 minutes or so of my notes. It is proving too unstable to use. I had no problems at all with the old version (like many others). It feels to me as if Pemultimate is automatically syncing with Evernote every so often whilst I'm using it and there is something to do with the sync that is causing the occasional crash. I wondered if anyone has the same experience and has tired abandoning the Evernote sync and whether that makes it more stable. I would be happy just to mail the pdf files to myself as backup if it is until it becomes more stable. For now I am going to have to give note shelf a go in the hope it is more reliable. Other than the crashes and loss I am pretty much ok with the functionality in the new Pemultimate. I would prefer a button rather than the 2 finger scroll but it's not a show stopper for me. Losing notes is....... Cheers Dave
