If you're on the lookout for a new note-taking app, Penbook, a highly rated Microsoft Store app, is currently available for free. The app normally costs $9.99, but its developer has discounted it to celebrate its nomination for the Windows Developer Awards (via Reddit).
Penbook is a lot like OneNote, offering an open canvas for taking notes, sketching, and more. The app spices things up by including stationary for things like planners, checklists, calendars, and sheet music. There are also sports templates for baseball, hockey, soccer, football, and basketball – just in case you find yourself in a situation where you need to draw out some plays.
In addition to all of the built-in stationary and templates, Penbook is built to work with digital pens and the Surface Dial. The app can also be used to write or draw on PDFs. And when you're done writing, you can organize everything by adding covers to each notebook.
If you own a PC with touch, then Penbook looks like it's worth checking out. As of this writing, the app is set to be free for five more days. And for more, you can cast your vote for Penbook and other apps at the Windows Developer Awards 2018 website. Winners will be announced at Build 2018 in May.
