Kanex starts shipping SnapX
Penultimate has been updated with new image support, while Kanex has announced that its SnapX display switcher is now shipping
Penultimate, a handwriting app designed for the iPad, has undergone a recent update that brings new photo and image support. The v3.0 release adds support for importing images from an iPad's photo library or in the case of the iPad 2, directly from the device's camera. Imported images can be positioned and resized within a notebook, as well as annotated with any of the apps included pens. The update has also improved the software's Wrist Protection feature, as well as added a new option paper collection. The Photo Pages collection is available through the in-app Paper Shop for a $1, and offers several simple paper templates for photo albums.
