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.

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.

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.

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.

Sign in to your Evernote account in the Penultimate app to organize your Penultimate notes in notebooks, separated by topic, project, or category. Your Penultimate notes are synced to Evernote automatically, so you can find and share them across all of your devices.

No matter how you prefer to organize your work, Penultimate makes it easy to find the notes you need. Penultimate processes your notes so you can search for handwritten text in the app. Save and browse your work in notebooks and insert, delete, duplicate, and reorganize pages any way you like within them.

Penultimate is free to download and use. Evernote Premium adds great features across all of the Evernote applications. In Penultimate, Passcode Lock and unlimited Paper Shop access are included. Premium is available through an auto-renewing subscription.

Two subscription options:
- Evernote Premium monthly for $5
- Evernote Premium annually for $45

Subscriptions will be charged to your credit card through your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless cancelled at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. You will not be able to cancel a subscription during the active period. Manage your subscriptions in the Account Settings after purchase.

Too much with poor useability

I have used pen ultimate for many years. And the steadily increasing useless feature list has Ben making I'd hard and slower to use. The last straw was the complete change to the interface. I have managed to find most thinks now but is much more time consuming to use added to this is a new lock screen that slams over the interface ever time you swap apps and take many taps to get back to what you were working on be fore you referenced the Internet or an email.. I use to use is for note taking and the new zoom bar is an improvement but is is the only feature added in the last year of any value. I will now be looking for another app to replace Penultimate . I purchased this app back before Evernote got there hands on it. Evernote has not interest for me. The other reason I am ditching this is it looses data all the time now this has been slowly increasing as Evernote made improvements to it. . The information is there up until I come back in to wireless range and Evernote synchronises then it's gone. Very poor show.

Great notebook app

Have been using the app for note-taking while at Uni for a while now. definitely feels like it’s getting to be just like using good old pen and paper, especially after the latest update and being used in conjunction with the Jot Script stylus!

My only concern is that the sensitivity of the stylus sometimes goes astray (most notable when the zoom bar tracks your writing speed). If the responsiveness issues could be fixed, and for it to automatically move down to the next line when you reach the end of the current, this app would definitely have me 110% sold on going completely digital

Nearly there

Thank you for the update, it is now a useable app, which is great to have working again. Ink is much better because it's fast, but it's still only 3star because of the ink aesthetics. (Hoping that the width of the ink will mimic a real pen and change with the speed of the pen just as it did before. Then this will be the 5star app which someone would expect from a company like Evernote.
