Hello, how are you?
MONTBLANC Pen 1.0.2 is now available. This is a little, but a big change. The app’s name itself does not change, but will be shown as “MONTBLANC” on the menu screen. For those who don’t like the current font, let’s upgrade!
See you soon.

Hello, we haven’t seen you for ages, but under our silence, we are creating some new apps.
Do you remember that I mentioned the sister of iShodo, the app of MONTBLANC’s fountain pen? To tell the truth, it has already been released in Japan. So, today, I will introduce more detail of the app.
Just tap “WRITE NOW” and write anything you want on the sheet!
If you tap on the left edge of the screen, you can select the boldness of line: EF (thin), F(middle), and M(bold).
Also, by tapping right edge, 4 ink pods will show up. 4 colours are available: Royal blue, Blue-black, violet, and Bordeaux.
Of course, your work can be saved in your photo library and be sent to your Twitter account with your comment.
This application is the first official application of Montblanc and is designed for its longtime support to the children aid organisation, UNICEF. The model of this is a traditional and well-known fountain pen of Montblanc, Meisterstu”ck, loved by many people since its first appearance in 1924.
This is FREE app, but we contribute 1 yen to UNICEF according to the number of download (total in December 2009)of this application.
Your download will be contribution to the UNICEF!

Regarding our goal to create alternative stationary for future, that does not mean to eliminate traditional ones. What we try to do is to renovate them for future style, so iPhone app is the new way for the renovation…
iShodo was born in December and have been loved by many users since its released. We are really happy our app is loved by many users. Regarding the app, her sister was born!!!
She is s fountain pen application. As for fountain pens, many people would use the fountain pens by MONTBLANC. The company is one of the most famous stationary makers in the world, and the new application was created in collaboration with the company! The same technology as iShodo is applied to her to realize the reality of the way to write with a fountain pen.
The baby’s face is now open to the pubic at Mitsukoshi in Nihonbashi, Japan. I put some pictures of her on this post. She will stand with her feet and start to walk before so long. First in Japan, and soon after that, she will be able to visit your iPhone around the world!
Hope you will love the application and we can create something interesting for you. Please wait for her until she is released on the AppStore!
