Productivity App: Penultimate Lets You Use Your iPad Like A Moleskine
I’m working on it; we all have our faults.
The great thing for you about my affinity for productivity hacks and apps to make my life/work better is that I test them and only tell you about the awesome ones. Penultimate, from Evernote, is one of those apps that answers a common problem.
While I may be very digitally inclined, I still like to write down thoughts, hand draw diagrams, and take notes during calls and meetings on paper. The actual writing process helps etch ideas in my brain and makes them stickier than just typing. I also write much slower than I type so I am forced to listen more carefully and edit to get the gist of topics and ideas.
Penultimate can be downloaded to your iPad from the App Store. You can write and draw with your finger but I prefer using a tablet pen that I got from Brookstone (only $10).
Additionally, these notes and notebooks that you fill using Penultimate can sync with your Evernote account to keep everything in one place. (You may remember that my resolution for 2012 was to go paperless and I wrote about it at Under30CEO.com)
P.S. Do you have any favorite productivity apps that you’re using in 2013?
