  1. just wanted to throw out a couple ideas... not sure if all are possible, but thought it might be useful to know what the users of Penultimate are wishing for. my two main requests deal with two totally different areas. 1. i find it annoying to have to go into the settings and switch off the Multitasking Gestures everytime i want to take some notes in Penultimate. not sure if apple allows/supports this kind of thing, but a button inside the app to temporarily turn this off would be nice. even better would be to disable the Multitasking Gestures alltogether when Penultimate is in use. 2. this one is more design-based, but i absolutely love the way 53 Paper handles notebook covers. i love that they offer different colors/designs as well as the ability to add your own image to the cover of a notebook. this not only lets you customize to your own style, but also makes it easier to identify specific notebooks when you have a lot of them.
  2. Oh I agree with you completely. I did not mean to suggest that Evernote should go out and buy FiftyThree/Paper. I (and I think the OP) were just suggesting that Evernote (especially now having bought Penultimate) should look very closely at Paper as a benchmark because there are a lot of people who find its tool feel and UI to be transformative for non-writing tasks. I have full confidence that the Evernote and Penultimate guys could come up with something amazing in this regard, and I hope they do. i was excited that Evernote bought Penultimate for this reason exactly. i use FiftyThree/Paper as well (for my sketching purposes - penultimate for notes) and love the feel of that app. i also love the different covers to the notebooks, as i find it hard to search through the several brown covered penultimate ones. i'm hoping Evernote can take this app to the next level.
  3. How about pens? I have been watching these guys for the past few weeks (http://handstylus.com/) and so far compared to what I have seen on the market, they offer the most realistic stylus writing experience yet... however, I am excited to see user reviews. I would really love to take notes in class on my ipad, but going against ye ol' pen and paper feel the cons still outweigh the pros. *Grumpy- Of those you have tried... which has been best for practicing/writing kanji? i have tried a couple styli and have had pretty good results. i started with the Wacom Bamboo stylus. this one was not bad, but shares the same problem that most styli do... they use a fat rubber nib on the writing end, which makes it hard to see where exactly you are writing. i also noticed that the nib started to crack open after only about 2 months of use (they sell extra replacement nibs) i recently purchased the Adonit Jot Pro and absolutely love it! it is one of those that uses a clear disk on the end of the pen to simulate a finger press, yet allows you to see exactly where your pen is writing. a couple of drawbacks are that this type of stylus is much more fragile at the tip, and it makes an audible clicking noise as you write on the ipad, but other than that i have loved using this stylus!
