The best digital handwriting on iPad. Penultimate combines distraction-free, natural handwriting and sketching with the power of Evernote’s sync and search. Take class or meeting notes, journal your thoughts, or outline your next big idea—in the office or on the go. From the first stroke, Penultimate makes the experience of pen and paper more productive.
INK AND PAPER, MADE BETTER
Notes and drawings look spectacular in black or colored ink. Our inking technology produces pen strokes that look natural, and Wrist Protection prevents stray marks for writers of all grips. Choose from a number of paper styles, or import an image to create personalized paper.
STYLUS AND SOFTWARE BUILT TOGETHER
We worked closely with Adonit to create the stylus we've always wanted: the Jot Script Evernote Edition, the first true precision-point stylus. Penultimate integrates tightly with the stylus and together they make digital handwriting the experience it should be. It’s like writing with your favorite pen. Available now in the Evernote Market.
YOUR WRITING KEEPS PACE WITH YOU
Penultimate lets you work on any part of the page effortlessly. To zoom in on a location on the page, simply pinch in and start writing. With Penultimate's Drift feature enabled, the page will move along with you, automatically adjusting to the pace you are working at.

No matter how you prefer to organize your work, Penultimate makes it easy to find the notes you need.

Ratings and Reviews
A pioneer among handwriting apps, Penultimate is the ideal tool for taking notes, sketching projects, or simply doodling the hours away. And with Evernote integration its easily become a better productivity tool than ever before.
Great App for Handwritten Notes
Have used a few different handwriting apps like them all as there seems to be a connection for me between handwriting and thinking rather than typing and thinking. For some they may scoff but for me it is real. So handwriting on my iPad Pro has been a wonderful addition.
As for Penultimate it is another handwriting app but has a few features that make it better for me than the others. Firstly is auto syncs with Evernote, so finding stuff later is easier and connecting other documents is better than anything else I have used. Secondly is the advanced writing feature that allows zoom and flow during the writing experience. What would be a handy addition is a handwriting to text conversion processes. It maybe there but have not discovered it yet.
It is simple to use, it is free and I can find documents after I have filed them what is there not to like if you just want handwritten notes.
Simply the best
I’ve been using Penultimate now for over one month.
I am an Evernote premium subscriber. These two products couple together are clearly the best notetaking filing system that you can get.
It is easy to understand, and quickly to learn, all the details of Penultimate.
To make it even better it would be great to incorporate penultimate within Evernote, that is embedding the product within Evernote so you never have to move out of the Evernote app.
The only improvement I would like to see is “handwriting to text” option.
Having said that, this product is the ULTIMATE well done to the developers.
