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.
YOUR WRITING KEEPS PACE WITH YOU
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.
CONNECT AND SYNC WITH EVERNOTE
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.
FIND WHAT YOU NEED QUICKLY
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.

Utterly horrible update
Update: why do I keep hoping? At this point, there is no reason to. They fix one aspect and then TAKE away photo incorporation?!? Why remove useful and necessary incorporation? The obvious answer is that this screwed up company wants to force us into other apps. Well, you got it, Evernote, I definitely will continue to use other apps, just not ones you make. Still no trust rebuilt. They bought out a perfectly good app and destroyed it utterly. Every time I think they are going to fix it, they actually somehow make it worse in other ways...
Update on newest patch: underlying issues of stylus response and text box writing still unresolved. Still cannot use this app. I have cancelled paying membership and lost all trust with evernote. They did serious harm to my office work and productivity with this update.
Others have echoed what I think on this already, but this update is so unacceptable that I am going to actively rate penultimate and evernote badly until they fix this tool. They broke their own app intentionally. Do they even use it or test it? What good is better OCR if you can't write anything in the tool anymore?
REALLY, REALLY HATE THIS NEW VERSION
I can't agree more with the other reviewers who are disappointed in this so-called update. I depended on this app and am now devastated by the loss of my separate notebooks and the ability to move pages around. I wanted to give no stars but they won't let you do that. People who are looking for the old Penultimate experience should check out the Bamboo Paper app.
I still hate the new Penultimate and had been making do with Bamboo Paper and then Note Moka, which were both OK. But salvation has finally arrived with my discovery of Notes Plus, which has everything the old Penultimate had and more. Notes Plus isn’t free but it’s worth the ten bucks: the writing interface is the best I’ve experienced, it’s easy to edit and move around copy, there’s a broad variety of ink colors, paper styles and pen nibs, plus you can add audio, import (and edit) PDFs and export your own stuff to Dropbox and Google Drive. It’s truly what we Penultimate refugees have been waiting for.
Something in the ink engine has a leak. Or something similar. Starts out writing fine. Then at some indeterminate point in the writing session the whole app starts chugging while I'm writing with my Jot.
The result at first actually _helps_ my handwriting by smoothing it out, but inevitably it turns it into an unidentifiable morass of barely registered pen strokes that can't eve communicate a letter or even a word. (Interestingly, a brain can pick up on a word more readily than a letter, but still.)
Please. I'm begging you. I even did all manner of practice with the auto scroll and got competent in it. Allow me to disable it and allow me to manually advance using a button in the zoom box. Auto scroll has been an absolute disaster, overall, for my handwriting. I rue it more every time I actually look at my writing. Illegible even to me. What is this, a prescription pad? No!
