Evernote just announced it acquired Penultimate, a drawing and handwriting app for iPad.Penultimate has consistently been one of the most-downloaded paid apps on iPad.

It lets you use your finger or stylus to create doodles or notes.

The app also has handwriting recognition built in, which will be very valuable to Evernote’s overall goal to storing all your digital stuff.

Although Penultimate is an iPad-only app right now, more platforms are coming.

Evernote recently landed a $70 million round of funding, so it looks like the company is putting all that cash to good use. No word on how much Evernote paid to acquire Penultimate.
