After closing a $70 million deal last week, Evernote announced today that it has acquired the handwriting app Penultimate, the fourth-best-selling iPad app of all time. Penultimate fans don’t have to worry; when Evernote buys apps, they stick around. Evernote lovers should be excited to add this one to the family. Here’s why.
Penultimate creator Ben Zotto will lead a team implementing digital handwriting into other Evernote products. As for Penultimate itself, Zotto says that we’ll “also start seeing Penultimate (finally!) on other devices.” From both sides of the table, this sounds like a mutually beneficial arrangement.
