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.

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.

Great business note taking app

The Apple Pencil and Penultimate have transformed my business note taking, I keep separate notebooks for each subject and then several collections within. The app automatically dates each note and syncs with Evernote so that you can access your notes from anything. I like the multiple paper types and the ability to import photo (I have now imported pictures of my last handwritten notes and continued in Penultimate) - highly recommended

Ridiculously bad

This app is too clever for itself. Printing for example. How the hell do do it. It's an iPad its supposed to be simple. Too many hidden commands that work only in one view. It says click on document, yes but in which view is the document view. If you dont identify this how anyone ever going to learn to use this app without wanting to throw the iPad out of the window. Of course you have to export as PDF and then print. Why. Put a printing resource into this app you lazy coders. Find a different app and dump Evernote. Lazy coders should drive companies out of business leaving room in the market for people who can get the job done.
