Penbook beta: now available

Be the first to get Penbook on your iPad.

It’s been a long summer in the iOS salt mines, but we’re finally ready for you to kick the tires on Penbook’s first public beta.

To get the beta, click the button below. A few disclaimers: you need an iPad running iOS 13.1 beta 2. You need an Apple Pencil. And as with all beta software, you should expect bugs and hiccups.

(Make sure you open this link in Safari on your iPad.)

Install the beta

This beta is getting close to what we’ll be releasing on launch day: you can create penbooks, choose from a wide selection of beta stationery, and see how slick PencilKit is. Some of our Live Paper stationeries are included, like the weekly planner.

There are a few known issues – check the release notes for detail. You can submit feedback right from the TestFlight app, or by taking screenshots from within Penbook. We read every piece of feedback!

Our goal for Penbook is to provide a better note-taking experience than paper. We hope you agree that we’re on our way, and we can’t wait to hear what you think about our progress.
