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. Pair it with Evernote Premium or Evernote Plus for bigger uploads and many other great features.

Two subscription options:
Evernote Premium monthly for $5.99 per month | $49.99 annually
Evernote Plus monthly for $2.99 per month | $24.99 annually


Price may vary by location. Subscriptions will be charged to your credit card through your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You will not be able to cancel the subscription once activated. Manage your subscriptions in Account Settings after purchase.

Customer Reviews

My should bag has breathed a sigh of relief!

I am well on the way to being paperless in a world that seems to have to have everything written down. I used to have a large bag with laptop, support cables and loads of paperwork for the meetings I'd be attending over a number of days on the road. Now, I have a tablet, penultimate and all my notes from the last couple of years as well as a cloud full of filing, simply following me around, my bag is small, my shoulder is relieved and my chiropractor has commented on my improved posture and gate.

So penultimate; Green; clean; improves wellbeing and makes me much more efficient at what I do - what's not to like, best app on the market as the geeks had the foresight to join it up with Evernote and allow it to do all the things you thought ITC should be able to do. Happy customer ;-)

Incomprehensible UI

EDIT: Took another look at this app in May 2016. The app itself is still next to useless due to the ridiculous "zoom in" mode, which scrolls as you write, adjusting the scroll speed according to the speed of your pen strokes. There's nothing in real life to prepare you for this, and it's never satisfactory. No matter how much you tweak the new speed setting they provide, your handwriting will still look like... well, it will look like you tried to write it while a friend moved the paper underneath your pen!

It still makes no difference whether you use a cheap £5 rubber-tipped stylus or the £60 Evernote Jot 2. You still get palm marks all over everything you write with the more expensive pen. You can prove this by connecting the pen, and then starting to draw with your fingers.

In a world where we already have Good Notes, which syncs documents to iCloud Drive, there really is no need for Penultimate.


I am not sure why this scores very low in the App's free and syncs with Evernote !...the bad reviews I have read are foolish people who have not taken 5 mins to read the instructions. It's easty to use and because of the auto sync with as I said - Evernote it does everything I need in a handwriting app....
You can also attach photo's ....what are you waiting for....? Give it a go and spend a couple of minutes to work out how it works and you will not regret it.
