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.

Ich finde die App wirklich gut wenn man mit evernote arbeitet. Die Notizen werden direkt abgespeichert.
Das einzige, was noch verbessert werden muss, ist die Empfindlichkeit, wenn die Schreibhand auf das Display kommt. Man hat immer Striche und Punkte in der Notiz. Das geht besser.

Für Evernote Nutzer perfekt

Als jahrelanger Nutzer von verschiedenen Apps für handgeschriebene Notizen habe ich mich nun auf Punultimate fokussiert und nutze seit einiger Zeit keine andere App mehr. Paper 53 ist für meinen Bedarf zu verspielt und (augenscheinlich) auf Zeichner ausgerichtet, GoodNotes ist eine sehr gute App wenn es um das Schreiben selbst geht, aber die Dokumente sind zu umständlich zu verwalten. Seitdem ich mich auf Evernote als plattformübergreifenden Service für alle Notizen etc. festgelegt habe, ist Penultimate die ideale Ergänzung.
