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.

Customer Reviews

Impossible to write on, unreliable and deletes the wrong apps!

Firstly the app has deleted the wrong note of mine. I carefully tapped and held on the note I wished to delete and the app brought up the three icons with choices on how to edit that note. I tapped the delete icon and it asked me to confirm that I wished to delete. I tapped yes but only just before realising it was asking me about a totally different note. It's now gone and I won't get it back. Fine, I should have read the confirmation, but the app shouldn't have tried to delete that note in the first place. Two meetings worth of notes just gone and never to be replaced. This is connected with the following issue:

Secondly, it is unbelievably slow and reliant on a net connection. You only need one other app open in the back ground and if you leave Penultimate then upon re-entering the app then it loads up, which can take forever and you then have to find the note on which you were working and go back in, which takes an age. In a meeting that is not good. I usually abandon the app there and then. Not to mention that it crashes out frequently as well. I just chew u iPad memory, it really must.

Lastly, you cannot rest your hand on it, because the iPad thinks you are trying to move the note paper around.

It's a good idea and the search works great on even my messy a hand writing, but that's the only good point.


Why???? The latest version makes reading all my previous notes very difficult by not rotating them and displaying landscape notes as full width in portrait. Useless! Don't update and live with the buggy interface.

Writing paper

Just setup my Premium account, tried to download the 'writing' templates and it will not download. All other templates downloaded without an issue. The only one I will really use is the 'Writing' one. When will this be sorted???
