This comes from Evernote... There has been a lot of talk about Evernote and whether it could potentially be one of the Unicorns to fall. Many people have criticised Evernote for concentrating on features that weren't necessary to it's core offering. Perhaps this is one of them? I've not used it and have seen other apps that offer something similar.

@bentossell I have a love-hate relation with Evernote. Skitch is one of my favorite apps. And now Evernote is ending its support. I love the Evernote app and going to use it for the time being but killing Skitch has made me move further away from Evernote.

@akshaybharwani I always want somewhere to have a notes section... but I struggle to make it a habit and therefore an essential daily app

@bentossell But there are many, if not better, but good enough alternatives out there. Even Apple Notes is catching up.

@bentossell Your point definitely has merit. Evernote's product philosophy has always been build apps that _everyone_ can use. The Evernote app, as an example, supports just about every type of information store you can imagine. The obvious downside to this approach is that the result can confusing and bloated. Make something for everyone, and it's not going to be very good. To succeed, Evernote needs focus.

used this app for years but couldn't get used to the massive update changes they made. specifically the way you zoom in and write. it used to be so intuitive, but now it uses the same technique that almost all the other subpar note taking apps use...which is why I didn't use those ones.

BEST. Tool. Ever. Seriously. I bought an Adonit pen, a new iPad just to use this. It's been amazing ever since. Since I work on so many projects, and I talk to so many people, I used to have dozens of notebooks, each one for a different thing, like: "legal aspects of our UK company" "company culture" "branding" "plan for the next 5 years" "scaling up sales" etc. A lot of them. And I couldn't handle them anymore so I did a complete switch to iPad and Penultimate. It is perfect. Exactly what I needed, without having to switch between heavy physical notebooks. I'm not a big fan of Evernote. I don't even actually use it. But Penultimate has been a life-saver for me and continues to be. I hunted the MoleSkine app for journals, before I found Penultimate, but they don't really compare. Penultimate offers a much better workflow and experience.
