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.

Pretty good app

I like it. I've used it a lot, for a lot of different applications, education, architecture..... I really, really wish you'd add a straight line tool. It would be perfect with that bad boy.

Very disappointing.

I am using adonit jot script from evernote.
Although writing has improved a lot since the last update, palm rejection is very bad. I guess everyone would have a higher expectation from the company partnering up with Evernote. There is so many other writing application that perform much better than penultimate. I really like to find a way to use this app more and the only reason is because I can sync it with Evernote but the writing experience is very bad.

This app is dead

This used to be what the name suggested, an ultimate app for what it was meant to be, a quick hand written note app. Unfortunately, since it's been purchased by Evernote, slowly but surely they've "improved" it to a point that it's completely useless now. Do yourself a favor and find other app. Sad, very sad.
