Can’t use 1/5
Won’t let me type.. delete
One note 5/5
I feel like this is either a hit or miss for people. I happen to love it, great for college!
Great App!!! 5/5
Very good layout for organizing notes, and great sync to pc ability. PC app does have more tools though.
Near perfect 4/5
By Long collectorz fan &customer
I’ve used this app for years and it is essential to my workflow ..... it was perfect now it’s nearly perfect… needs an update or patch…whenever you open the app or jump from section to section and each section has photos ,the pics distort until u touch it…then it straightens out … I use this app for art and do pre layouts and write ups so there’s lots of pics… small annoyance but could be fixed…still though there’s no other app for me
Very good except search 3/5
This is a very useful note taking app. But there are 2 things that are not right. First I like the old tab forms. In new form , I wish I could swipe right to go back to lists. The second and the worse is the search function. Compared to the PC’s counterpart, search is very bad. The unrelated things always occupy the top of the search list.
Good idea but 3/5
Mediocre execution. This is the best product ms ever devised. Clean, relatively intuitive to use. But, as with all ms products I have ever used, the execution leaves much to be desired. It’s slow, clunky and the sharing is a mess. It updates for some, on some platforms, and not for others. Totally unreliable, especially when compared to Google. Which is mystery to me, given all the time ms has had to perfect OneNote. Oh well
not able to log in my Microsoft account 1/5
I am writing to sign in, it’s forcing me to create account , doesn’t make since
IPad Pro 10.5? 1/5
This app works on my husbands 9.7 iPad Pro no problem however it will not even load the content on any page in any of my notebooks on the 10.5 pro. Otherwise, it used to work great syncing across all devices.
Failure to sync on all devices 1/5
Constantly having to reinstall app in order to get it to syn all my notes from class. Every day
And now it crashes while I’m editing the app.
Best note taking app 5/5
I’ve used OneNote on every platform it is available for and it is consistently great. I’ve never had any problems with it. The support for split screen note-taking is extremely useful. I’m really glad Microsoft has embraced multiplatform development. I have a desktop PC with Windows 10, a mobile phone with Android and an iPad. OneNote works great on all three. =)
Keep up the great work!
Goes with me everywhere! 5/5
I don’t care what device I have with me, I always have my OneNote. If I want to work on a project beginning with my computer, I can continue the project on my iPhone or Android Tablet. OneNote is always updated and improved. I can always count on it.
They don’t listen to feedback, or respond. 1/5
By firewoodman 83
Phone numbers and addresses aren’t highlighted or clickable and they won’t fix it. Every other note app has this ability, why can’t Microsoft make it happen???
THE BEST 5/5
It worth to learn how to use this free app. IT IS AMAZING
Doesn’t even let me create a notebook 1/5
This app needs a lot of work. Wouldn’t even let me create a notebook. At startup, got an error and wouldn’t go away.
Losing the love 2/5
Very slow to open. Clip to OneNote is increasingly buggy. Can’t insert the cursor into a word so to make a correction the entire word must be rewritten. Especially annoying when it autocapitalizes a word I want in lower case. Difficult to move an item around a page as it doesn’t track so I can tell where I am in the page. Other issues, too. Had previously rated it a 5.
Best note taking app... 5/5
By Mr. Jonathan
One Note is the best note taking app across all platforms.
Almost perfect 4/5
Wish I could look at more than one section at a time, especially on the iPad. For when you’re reviewing for an exam and need info from previous sections to eliminate all the back and forth clicking. Love the pen options though.
Great app and is reliable 5/5
I don’t think I have ever had a problem with this app and I hope to keep it that way instead of having buggy new features
By Clan O'Rourke
I wish the mobile version would fit to the screen without going into list mode but other than that I love it!
Great app! 5/5
I love the functionality with this app on my IOS and Android devices!
Needs desktop audio recording features added 3/5
It is good for a quick view of notes, but falls behind in creation of content.
Needs more consistent zoom 2/5
I like everything about OneNote except that it doesn’t have a more consistent zoom in function, and as a result my handwriting doesn’t look great even with the pencil. This is not the case on Notability. Seriously contemplating switching to Notability permanently
Love how I can sync notes across all of my devices. It’s a true notebook because I can write anywhere on the page, add pictures, and charts, etc. I can also have other editors/collaborators which is great for group assignments
Back button 4/5
I love the app, the only thing is on the mobile version I do not see a way to go back if I accidentally delete something, like a line or section.
No Pencil by 53 support anymore 1/5
By Hawaiian ed
Same old Microsoft up to their same old tricks. A few years ago and to many delights OneNote supported integration with the Pencil active stylus. It was great! Many bought the Pencil by 53 just for this. For some reason , maybe to piss people off for fun, that feature has been deprecated. And to add insult to injury on the MS support forms they have OneNote users call the hardware manufacturer about deprecated software features.
Total lack of ease 1/5
I’m sure this is a great college tool. Being able to add any format to your note is wonderful. Being in class all day and having time to play with setting up notebooks would be great. In the working world you need to be able to add notes quickly like using paper if this is ever going to be useful.
Excellent app! 5/5
I can now organize all my work and view it them from anywhere. What a perfect app!
Olá! Muito bom. 5/5
By Marcelo Salviano
Gosto muito desde que comprei um Nokia e lá fui praticamente obrigado a usar! Quando usei o App adorei, pelo fato que podemos gravar também é fica registrado e vinculado ao meu e-mail!
Changed My Life 5/5
The way the iPod did. The way my iPhone did. The way Sonos did. The way Nest did. The way my gf ; did. Love love love OneNote.
Buggy update 2/5
Generally useful app with good cloud integration. The latest update though keeps crashing on iPad Pro. Please fix ASAP.
Unable to safe a lot of files 1/5
By sady lozada
When copying and pasting items is not as easy as it should be
Nice app but missing good sorting and search processing 2/5
I’ve been switching from Evernote and like OneNote but like it’s mac version it’s ability to sort notes is non existent. A app designed to hold hundreds or thousands of notes should be able to sort by name or date for each section.
There also needs to be a way to act on search results. For example, search all notes with word xyz and be able to grab them and move collectively to another section.
OneNote is also directly tied to OneDrive. You can not have notebooks on iCloud or Dropbox. If you use the mac version, you can not store notebooks on a local or shared drive.
Syncing can also be slow and problematic. I pulled in thousands of notes from Evernote using Microsoft’s importer on my mac. I had to break the notes into a couple dozen notebooks so they were small enough to be usable. Also a warning. The import is a mess. I had a notebook from my MBA classes with a section for each class in Evernote. The sections all got blended together when importing putting notes together that had the same tags into a section with the tag name. Tag support in OneNote is horrible.
Trouble opening some notebooks 5/5
I love this app but some of my notebooks don’t open.
Huge Lifesaver 5/5
I have only recently started using this but I regret not starting much before! This app has made my life so much easier that I don’t know what I would’ve been doing without it.
Saves me so much paper because instead of printing slide after slide I just import them into this and keep my notes with me wherever I go! It is also awesome if you forgot your notebook or your notes because you can just access them on your phone as well.
Love it but syncing takes long 4/5
By Tharun Reddy Medini
I love using onenote bcz I can sync it with my laptop as well. But I see sometimes that my changes in iPhone are not automatically synced to cloud. Also, sometimes, the app keeps asking to enter password for no reason. When I tap on that, I can’t enter any password.
Please keep things simple like Apple notes.
Not Functional Enough 2/5
Why after all these years can’t we change fonts and other customizable options? It doesn’t make any sense. I still have to use the laptop for this when I’m always on my phone.
Disaster with X 1/5
Used to be stable, but has been a disaster with my iPhone X. It crashes so frequently that it’s unusable.
Love it! 5/5
Love it! Keeps me organized!!
My OneNote Journey 5/5
To begin, hats off to the developers and team and thought up this creative tool. It’s not only transformed my life personally, but work as well.
This tool is so flexible now that it had its own app. I’m able to create notes, store information and communicate more effectively right through my iPhone.
My latest endeavor is to use this during my house hunting. It’s keeping everything together and the ability to share.
Career wise it has transformed me by allowing me to use for my organized project management needs.
I speak often about this tool and encourage the use whenever I am able.
Would be great if you could change font color on the app... 3/5
Love everything about onenote and the convenience. However, there is not an ability to change font types or colors on the mobile app. Would be a nice feature to have.
Lacks Simple Functions 1/5
There are many positive attributes of OneNote for IOS. More baffling, however, are simple things that it lacks. For starters, the IOS versions do not have the ability to “Find Tags” (like To Dos, important items, questions, etc.). Unbelievable! You have to go hunt them down individually across pages and notebooks. Also, it doesn’t follow Apple’s autocorrect conventions. Instead it has it’s own table of autocorrections that a user has no access to... So, for example if you have an abbreviation like HSA (short for Health Savings Account) it will frustratingly and incorrectly change that to HAS every time. You can’t change that. It also takes over your capitalization decisions and you cannot control that... Very unproductive...
I can’t enter a name for a Notebook so I can’t use this on my phone.
Why no printing? 2/5
The fact that I have to email a page to myself to print this is beyond silly.
Great program! 5/5
I'm a first year college student, and I use OneNote for all my notes. I can type out my notes, add pictures, and even draw pictures. Having the app on my phone, iPad, and laptop make my notes easily accessible. I haven't had any major problems with the program and app. In addition, it's really easy to share notes and collaborate with friends.
By Teddy Goldstein
Awful. Does not work!
Where is the support team? 1/5
This app can potentially be an incredible tool. For most of the time it works perfectly well and I use it for all my coursework notes. I import pdf’s and PowerPoint slides all the time and take handwritten plus typed notes on the platform. However there are A LOT of bugs. There seems to be no one on the support team who is trying to resolve any of these bugs and at the end of the day these simple problems ruin the whole experience. I have just wasted an hour of my time trying to fix my notebook and get it back onto my iPad. It’s still not fully resolved.
Edit: I deleted and reinstalled the app. Now it dropped me back to the older format of the application...incredible.
Finally Found What I Needed 5/5
I wish I would’ve found this app before I bought one of the others I tried. I didn’t need anything to complicated. Here were my requirements:
* An app that would work with pencil
* An app that had “notebooks” with sections
* password protection for my confidential notes.
As little as those requirements are it was VERY difficult to find an app that met those needs. There was one for over $10, but I didn’t want to spend that.
THANK YOU MICROSOFT for a great app and for saving me over ten bucks!!
Took a bit of figuring out, but have really come to like it. Drawing using an iPad Pro works really nicely. Organizational structure (which was the part which took some getting used to) is nicely done.
Great for grad school 5/5
Syncs across my Mac/iPhone 8+/iPad perfectly. Love having the ability to jump in on any device and have the same experience. As a top if you're importing power points save them as a JPEG and then insert them for a more comparable viewing experience on mobile/iPad
Very helpful 5/5
Been very helping in getting access to my information no matter where I am.
