iPad App Review: Penultimate

Penultimate is an app for the iPad that allows you to write, sketch, and draw almost anything you want to, simply using the touch of your finger on the iPad’s screen. The app is similar to the notes app that you get with the iPhone and iPod Touch, however, it’s more like ‘notes on steroids’ as it allows you to do so much more than was ever possible with notes.

The overall layout of this app is excellent. It features a beautifully designed interface and all of the different options and menus are set out in a very user-friendly manner, making them easy to read and understand. The app has great responsiveness and the iPad’s processor really comes into its own when you are using this app. At no point when we tested this app did it lag behind or need time to process what we were trying to draw or write. The second your finger touches the screen is the second that your writing or sketches will be transferred to the iPad device.Penultimate

The idea of the app is that it allows you to record your ideas, right then, at the moment that you think of them. You are able to create hand-drawn notebooks that can feature an unlimited amount of pages. Each page in the notebook can feature almost anything you care to scribble down, whether it be text, sketches, or even a mixture of both. Once you have finished one page of your notebook, simply tap the new page button and the app will present you with a clear page once again. When you have finished your entire book of notes, the app gives you a variety of options. It gives you the option to read through all the work that you have done, in the same style that you would read an eBook on the device, you simply flick to turn to the next page.

The app also gives you the option to convert your notebook to PDF format and then email it to your friends, family, or colleagues. You are able to select the whole book to convert to PDF format or you can even select just the pages you want. The app also allows you to store a variety of different notebooks on the device which gives you the option to organize your different ideas into different notebooks, much like organizing things into folders on a desktop PC. This makes the app great for anyone who needs to communicate their ideas in a quick manner.

This app is perfect for business users, especially people such as graphic designers as it allows you to instantly transfer any ideas that you may have to the device, much like jotting your ideas down on a piece of paper. The app is available from the app store for just $2.99 and we feel that this is definitely worth your money

iPad App Review: PrintCentral

PrintCentral is a great idea for an iPad app that actually allows you to print a variety of different files right from your iPad. The idea of the app is that it will make it easier for many people to print the files that they want to print as they won’t have to waste time logging on to their computer; opening their files and printing in a conventional way like many of us are used to. Of course, as with many applications, the idea of this app sounds like a great idea, but a lot of applications are never really as good as they claim to be.

However, this is certainly not the case with this app as it seems to be one of the best web design websites for translating your thoughts into reality. The website is extremely well designed and the user interface is extremely simple. Even if you have not used an app like this for the iPad or iPhone devices before, you are sure to pick it up almost straight away and you will be printing your files from your iPad in no time. The app is laid out with a list of your files on the left-hand side of the screen, then on the right-hand side of the screen, you will get a preview of whichever file you decide to select. This is great as it sort of acts as a print preview and you can make sure that the file you want to print is actually the file you have selected before sending it to the printer. The menu bar is located along the bottom of the screen and has a variety of different options, including the print button of course.PrintCentral

The app has some pretty useful features that will really make life easier for a lot of people. One of these features is that you will have the ability to open attachments from the Apple Mail app that is pre-installed on the iPad and print them using this app. You are also able to print various web pages that you come across whilst browsing on your device and you are able to access your MobileMe account and print files that are located on that. As to the kinds of files that this app supports, there are very few that you will find it doesn’t support. You are able to print Word documents, PDF files, .txt files, image files, and many others.

Overall, this app is extremely useful and will really make printing those important documents easy. We would say that this app would be especially useful for business users who need to print those files as soon as possible without delay. The app is available from the App Store for just $9.99 and although that may seem like quite a hefty price just for an iPad app, you really are getting an array of extremely useful features.
