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.
Subscriptions will be charged to your credit card through your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless cancelled at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. You will not be able to cancel a subscription during the active period. Manage your subscriptions in the Account Settings after purchase.
