  • Amazing for College!

    By RiesHunter
    I use this daily to take notes for many of my undergraduate classes. It’s absolutely fantastic! I use it primarily on my MacBook, but can reference it on my iPhone. I’m planning on getting an iPad with and Apple Pencil to be able to completley go paperless. WOULD RECOMMEND!!!
  • Love it

    Had been a long time evernote user. Now started to try onenote. The canvas concept is great. I feel much more freedom. The UI is awesome. Cons (compared to Evernote): * not easy to quickly jot down a note as in EN, where a keyboard shortcut is tremendously efficeint * tagging is sub-par, vs EN, where you can use any tag, and do sophisticated tag search Overall, I think it serves different purposes from EN, which may be more for ppl in tech or text notes
  • Not Perfect But Very Good

    By KingTunaProclamations
    I’ve tried EverNotes and Google Docs, but I like OneNote the most. I have only one complaint. I set my default font and size, but sometime a new entry in an existing note is saved with a different font and size.
  • Major Drawback

    This was a very useful tool for my work, but it no longer allows storage and access to local OneNote files! I have to use a cloud service to access the files. MY EMPLOYER DOESN'T ALLOW FOR PLACEMENT OF FILES OUTSIDE THEIR SERVERS, SO YOU'VE JUST DISABLED ME FROM USING THIS PRODUCT THAT I PAID FOR! This is not the case for the Windows version. What a totally crappy move by Microsoft. Fix it, don't force others to your definition of work environment! Continuous Error code: 0xE40200AA. This is riduculous that we have problems for a paid product.
  • great product!

  • Excellent Business Tool on my Galaxy TAB S3

    By Chopper in CO
    This is an excellent productivity aid in my Sales efforts. As an avid Note taker in sales calls, I would go through paper tablets every couple of months and filing away the old ones in my office- for reference. Use of One Note and the pen for chicken scratch-quick notes on my Galaxy Tab 3 enables me to have files on each client or topic and I can reference discussions and notes from 6 or 8 months ago- at my fingertips. Furthermore, the ability to sync with my personal computer aids me in having that data in 2 places - or more. Cons- I would like to see more Android friendly interfaces in the App. but for a general note-taking and reference tool, its great.

  • Love it but would like to see some added tagging feature

    By AnkitMahajan19
    I love it and use it all the time but will defintely like to see support for custom tag creation where I can tag some content with a label across different sections and pages and can then also search them based on those tags. This is needed when a topic is typically part of a page in different section but is some what related to a page in other section and I need to be able to connect them together and then search them later based on the created custom tag. Thanks!
  • Amazing app!

    By rachel.betters
    I believe I’ve had a couple minor complaints which I can’t think of right now, but overall this application has been a lifesaver. I’ve used it for school, planning, travelling, and organizing a novel I’m working on. The various levels of organization—notebooks, section, pages—make it easy to organize anything as you need it. Other helpful feature include the ability to link different pages, and easily place a variety of content: images, web pages, tables, bits of text from various places. Previously, I put everything in Google Drive; however, this isn’t nearly as streamlined for organization. Since I use a variety of different computers on a daily basis, a simple app wouldn’t work. But OneNote allows you to open it as a program, a web page, or even a mobile app, making it extremely accessible. And… it’s free!
