Hello! Sorry I'm late.
I just knew you wouldn't want me to rush this.
Hey, sorry that it’s been a while – a quarter, as they say in Business. I’m sure you’ve noticed, and you’ve been wondering: where is that app update newsletter that adds such richness and meaning to my life?
We were both working so hard on updates that we (that is, I) didn’t get around to actually explaining what the updates are. There are only two of us on the team – did you know that? My name is Penjamin; my co-founder’s name is Booken. That’s where our app name comes from, just like Benjerry ice cream.

The Update We Did in April
In April, we added iPhone support to Penbook. It’s the same app, with some improved support for Pencil-less operation and narrow screens. A nice side effect of this was that Penbook got more polished in Slide Over and Split View on iPad.
This update included new washi and stickers, and a new featured book (“Everythingwhere"). It also added one of our most-requested features: the ability to copy or move pages to other books. Just long-press on a page in the Minimap.
The Update We Did in May
The next update added color swatches to the tool editors. We wanted to make it easier for you to take beautiful notes by putting pleasing palettes at your penciltips.
We also added three new Featured Books. We call them the Standard series: they’re notebooks with understated, fully-customizable paper, and they don’t make you overthink your writing. It’s another thing we did to help get you taking beautiful notes as quickly as possible.
Did you see all those Reddit links up there? You should come hang out. Everyone there is really nice, and the place is almost perfect, but it’s missing something crucial: you, you beautiful soul.
Until next quarter!
