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.

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.

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.
Much improved stability great App again
Still one of the best things out there. Contains pre made notebooks for music, maths, writing. Best by far with Evernote Premium. A lot of people seem to feel this App of not that great but a lot of the power comes with Evernote Premium. It's only a few dollars per month and that's where you get the best out of this legendary App. Since 2015 they fixed a lot of stability quirks that once crept into the App. App is not only nice and clean but stable as well. Apple Pencil s fully supported. Handwriting is easy and smooth. If I had one gripe it would be just that there is no way to add quickie text fields like urls, telephone numbers etc so that you can copied them into a browser for example. It is possible to search handwritten notes however.
I decided to try penultimate to move my note taking from scraps of paper to something I could look back on later down the line. It is fast, it is accurate and it does what I need it to. Then I decided to cross platform it with my phone and my MacBook as often I prefer to type as I am quicker at typing. For this I downloaded Evernote. This is where it falls down. It really isn't a good companion app, getting a typed note into penultimate is a chore, getting them to agree which version of a note is the current one is like separating quarrelling children. So you end up flicking through apps and as I am in a response control industry this doesn't work for me. As a standalone they each work and I would treat them as such but for that fully integrated system this has a long way to go
