The most natural digital handwriting experience on iPad, Penultimate gives you the convenience and feel of writing on paper with the added power and availability of Evernote. Take notes in class or a meeting, journal your thoughts, or outline your next big idea -- in the office, on the go, or at home on the sofa.
THE EXPERIENCE OF INK AND PAPER, MADE BETTER
Your handwriting and drawings look spectacular in black or color gel ink on your choice of photorealistic paper styles, or import any image to create your own personalized paper. Our inking technology produces pen strokes that look better than real ones, and the automatic Wrist Protection mode prevents stray marks from appearing on a page for writers of all grips.
DIGITAL HANDWRITING THAT KEEPS PACE WITH YOU
Penultimate makes moving around the page feel effortless, taking advantage of the gestures you already use on your iPad so that you can focus on the information you want to jot down. To zoom in on a spot 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.
REMEMBER EVERYTHING WITH EVERNOTE
As part of the Evernote family of products, Penultimate will quickly become one of the core productivity apps on your iPad. Store your Penultimate notes in notebooks, separated by topic, project, or category. Every Penultimate note is synced to your Evernote account automatically, where you can view, search and share them across all of your devices.
FIND ANYTHING FAST, EVEN HANDWRITTEN TEXT
You can search through your handwritten text within the app, or browse quickly through all pages. View your list of notebooks as a carousel or sort and scroll in a fast grid view. Penultimate also allows you to insert, delete, duplicate, and reorganize pages within and between notebooks.
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 has been designed to perfectly complement the stylus and, together, make digital handwriting the experience it should be. You'll not only see your handwriting as you intended it, you'll feel like you're writing with your favorite pen. Available now in the Evernote Market.
MORE WITH PREMIUM
Penultimate is free to download and use. Evernote Premium adds great features across all of the Evernote applications. In Penultimate, Passcode Lock and unlimited Paper Shop access are included. Premium is available through an auto-renewing subscription.

There's simply no enough words to describe how disappointed I am ever since Evernote bought his app.
The whole app just start to lag more often after the more deep Evernote integration.
New limit on how many pages you can use in one notebook due to Evernote. Sometimes 100 pages or so is just not enough to hold a semester of notes for one class in college.
Palm rejection just does not work as we'll anymore. Even after I bought the jot script. Ink still shows up where my palm is sometimes.
And the most frustrated feature they added..
WHY IS THERE AN ENTER KEY AFTER ZOOMING IN THE PAGE?
Due to the awkward position of the enter key and the poor palm rejection, I can't even remember how many times the page just jump to wherever it thinks the next line is while I'm taking the note. Yet after so many "bug improvement updates" they haven't even add an option to turn it off. And after the latest update, the ink that got accidentally onto the page which I believe should be deleted by palm rejection, would just stay there under the zoom in mode. Then after you zoomed out, those inks would just disappear like they should. That's just simply annoying.
I used to a huge fan of is app and have been taking notes with it since my freshmen year. But in the past few month all this app left me was frustration. Probably gonna get a win8 tablet or samsung one just for note taking..
Useful but barely
I have been playing around with this app the last few days and even purchased the blue tooth pen that goes with it. Here are my thoughts:
First off, the app lags pretty badly even on an iPad Air between what you’re writing and what its showing on the screen. I’m not sure if its the app or the hardware not capable of keeping up but the Samsung note seems to do an awesome job so hardware would appear capable.
Because it lags behind you it forces you to write really slowly and it chops off the height of your writing to make things appear shorter than they really were. This causes a huge problem when you attempt to read back what you wrote as everything looks less like what you actually wrote.
And just a mention of the pen itself, DO NOT BUY IT!! They totally misrepresented the thing and on an iPad Air it literally doesn’t function at all as it leaves off 80% of what you’re writing.
Again, not totally blaming this app as I don’t know where the problem resides but it needs a bit of work. This app is attempting to fill a gap that I am extremely interested in getting filled. Strange Apple has allowed Samsung to get so far ahead of them on this.
Its pretty good
I've been using this app for 2 semesters, I few things I like/dislike:
- I like how I'm able to draw diagrams for class.
- I like their update of being able to zoom in so I can get more in detail, super useful for A&P.
- I like how I can add pictures in to the note book from my camera roll (I used it quite a few times from my lab classes) which allows me to write labels.
- I like how it syncs with evernote
- I dislike when the app crashes when I'm in the middle of drawing/writing something when in the middle of class. This happened a few times and was pretty frustrating.
- I dislike that if i'm drawing something in landscape, it won't show up as landscape when I'm viewing it in evernote
- I dislike that you can't lock specific note books rather than locking the entire app. Some notebooks I wouldn't care if someone opened, but there are also some notebooks that I would rather keep locked (i.e. business idea's)
The app is pretty good and the updates have been great, I'd like to see more progress so I can use this app more. Thanks!!
