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.

Evernote Premium monthly for $7.99 per month | $69.99 annually

Customer Reviews

Simple and fast with a painful bug

This app does a wonderful job of keeping things simple when all you want to do is write. Unlike OneNote, the writing is so much faster and responsive, without any noticeable lag and I feel like everything I've looked for on this app had expected behavior. I never had look up how to do something.

The biggest complaint that I have for this app is when switching between apps, the position of your screen is lost. Your placed 3-5 pages above the last page of the book (or generally wherever you left off). It's infuriating when I'm writing down some notes from a web page or plotting a graph and having to constantly find my position again. It destroys my flow and makes the experience more painful and frustrating over time.

Hopefully next dev cycle they can target this issue and bring some sensible behavior into this problem.

Bug with app switching is infuriating

Edit: Version 6.2.3 fixed my issue!

On my iPad Pro 10.5, whenever I switch back to the app from another, the view is zoomed in to about 300%, with no way to zoom out. The only way to restore the view, and make it usable again, is to back out of editing all the way to the notebook view, and then drill back in. I do that dozens of times per day. Please fix it!

Needs more depth with Organization

This app is great for taking notes in school but I would like to have some authority over the order which I see my notebooks. Notebooks remain on a single page with no options to star or favorite notebooks that correspond to my current classes and need the quickest access to. I have been adding a makeshift prefix of “a*” to separate my current class notes from those of past classes. Please add a way for the user to change the order in which they see their notebooks.
