Syncing issues.but otherwise everything all in one 4/5
I tried to find a note taker that I can keep files and notes on, similar to a post it and was having difficulty. I then stumbled upon this app. It is so convenient and has many features. It's also easy to use once you familiarize yourself with the menu. After that the capabilities seem endless. I would have given this 5 stars because I use this program all of the time. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I cannot get my notebook to sync to IPad or Mac. That is a problem. Otherwise thumbs up!
Great program/app 5/5
The more I use it the more I like it. No problem syncing notes; and at this time I don't have to pay!
More explanation 2/5
It is a bit un clear how to use one note best, and what are all the possibilities.
I have it on my Surface and phone. But it is not easy to start a new file or document and then save it to use on your phone.
Five stars for you 5/5
You have earned a five star rating. I use this app every day
Loving this OneNote app!!!
Can't sync with MacBook pro 1/5
By D Norm
Very frustrating. iPhone app just doesn't communicate with app for Mac. Waste of money to me without that capability
Great except it doesn't stay logged in 3/5
I don't know why office apps have to be logged-in to so much. Whenever you need to use the app quickly, you can't because it asks you to log in which takes time if you have 2 step verification enabled. It makes the app difficult to use.
I hear that the windows version has better functionality 3/5
I love the organizational aspect of OneNote and use it a lot for everything: take notes while reading books; organize ideas for future projects; jot down and thematically organize material I may be quoting in an essay; write draft essay; keep a journal; store recipes....
My biggest problem with OneDrive is inability to easily change proofing language (I switch back and forth between
languages and have to go to the laptop to fix the proofing language: even if I change the keyboard I'm using on the iPad that does not seem to change the proofing language).
Now that I have iPad pro and have started to use Apple pencil, I would like have the capability of converting handwriting to text. Instead I have to use another app in which I handwrite and then copy that text: but it's very inaccurate because if there are several chunks of text in other languages, they aren't recognized properly in Shelf Note. What I would like to see OneNote do is to extend the lasso function to text recognition and then I could convert chunks of text one by one and tell the program what language it is to optimize recognition.
I would also like to see more control in terms of formatting: ability to turn off initial letter capitalization, for instance...
Still, OneNote is a great app and not sure where I would be without it!
Asked to login every day 1/5
It seems after connecting with a few more devices, the server then keeps asking me to re sign in every day. Funny that I wanted to write this comment and just realized that I already wrote this a while ago......
Can't Edit The Fonts 3/5
I don't get why you can edit fonts. You can't edit the type of font or the size. Which is very problematic when your are using the app to create documents for work or other projects.
Almost perfect 4/5
Notes is a very functional tool. The only function that needs to be added to the iPhone and iPad app is for search. On the PC when you search it takes you to the item and highlights the entry. Does t do that using the app which means you have to manually find the entry in the notebook.
One place for all notes 5/5
By It got annoying
Useful- I can get my stuff in all the same place.
Slow startup; integration with Office 365 issues 3/5
I really want to like OneNote but MS needs to fix the iOS login issues. I keep getting "Misplaced" sections with Office365 (E3) in my personal Office365 (Home) notebook. 2FA probably complicates matters but give me a way to link seamlessly!
Fix syncing 1/5
Why do I have to enter my password ALL THE FRICKING TIME!!!!!!!!!!
By Jeff K. Z.
OneNote has become my favorite information management app. I'd give it 5 stars, but the iOS version doesn't allow you to create a local notebook like the Windows versions do - everything must be in the cloud.
How do you print? 2/5
Can't find out how do you print?
What a top tier app. 10/10 would recommend. Evernote who? I don't know her!
Almost made it 3/5
By Dvyne Starr
I've been a fan of ONENOTE since the beginning. Especially for the collaboration aspect of the app. My two biggest complaints are the lack of time stamps per entry and the inability to have more than one text block per page. If these features were added this app would be 5 stars for me.
Best App for Organizing Notes 4/5
I do like OneNote a lot. I am not using for work. This app has downsides. The biggest problem is the poor syncing. I also wish that MS would bring more PC capabilities to the mobile environment. I use IPADs.
Really great for taking notes in class 4/5
Biggest downside is that it keeps asking me to sign in even though I already am signed in
I Love It 5/5
I love Microsoft OneNote. I write most of my notes in there. Any important notes not in OneNote is eventually placed in there. I like its many features as well as its syncing with all my devices.
Great, just needs OCR with Apple Pencil 4/5
Big fan of OneNote but need handwriting to be searchable when only using the iPad app.
Not mature enough yet 3/5
The tool is solid but the identity management needs a lot of help. Syncing is also a consistent issue.
One note is awesome! 5/5
After update I can't use it on my iPad Pro 1/5
After the update the app does not let me use it. Aren't updates suppose to, fix things not make the, worse. Now I can't access any of my notes for my courses
Really Great! 5/5
By Bad swap
Once I got used to OneNote, I started using it for grad school, novel writing, nonfiction notes, and personal journaling. I don't have to hit Save constantly, and all of my devices are synced.
Make it faster offline 3/5
Need to improve the speed while offline with. I internet connection.
By Xxx jobu xxx
Everything you would need in a note and task app.
That's I what needed! 5/5
YouTube no longer play in the background on iOS. I needed a app for that!
Thanks for making my life easier! Awesome!!!
One Note 5/5
By eliza larez
I use this app often. I can even take notes while reading or listening to an audio book. Especially useful for Great Courses audio books and other learning apps. I wish it were easier to title the tabs, especially when I want to make changes.
Great Planning App 5/5
By Mohamed Salahie
It's my favorite planning and notes app ..
By Love car Emma
It helps me when I need to do my homework when I don't have my computer with me
Love OneNote to manage all my notes! 5/5
Solid app. Love the password protected feature and sync across all devices!
Keeps crashing 1/5
App keeps crashing unexpectedly at the same time as syncing occurs. App-breaking issue.
Still barely functional to non-functional. I will be switching to Notability or Squid when it has iOS support.
This is great for homework and my work 5/5
If you stick with using it for a couple of days, it becomes second nature to use. With this tool I have completely organize my notes from work and college.
Persistent Logins 1/5
This app use to work great, but for the past 8 mo. I have to re-login all the time. The problem has been posted for some time now, it has yet to be addressed.
Excellent for use across multiple devices 5/5
Onenote has many practical uses and overall I am very pleased with the flexibility of the app, like the ability to insert PDF printouts, YouTube videos, and drawings... the built in camera and recorder are useful too, however I do wish that the iPad version could allow you to record audio while editing a page simultaneously like you can on the desk top version, as I like to record my lectures and go back to my notes for studying and rewriting notes. Other than that, the app is great. Sharing is easy and I can have multiple notebooks open at once. I would recommend it to anyone who wants their notes all in one place.
good but missing some features on Apple version 4/5
By easy to learn coding
wish the ability to save an entire notebook as a PDF was an option on Macs. also would like the option to adjust paragraph spacing
Good but not great 3/5
The good is that it provides very easy to use formatting tools such as: bullets, numbering and easy indentation. It also syncs with the cloud so it's available on my PC.
It has two downsides:
1. It does not sync automatically
2. The search does not include tags only text.
Okay app 2/5
Using as a study tool. I tried to use many other devices and apps in the past including Word. This by far is the best when combined with Apple pencil.
However, the app doesn't allow you to take full advantage of the screen. You can not hide the sidebar. It is just there without being any use taking up editing space.
STOP bothering me with review requests 1/5
By Jeff Naples
STOP bothering me with review requests
Keeps asking to sign in 1/5
One note ask me to re sign in like every 2 min... super annoying. Please fix this bug. Used to work flawlessly before major interface change.
Great AP 5/5
Such a help! Organizing made easy and what you need is immediately available where ever you hon
I love it!!! 5/5
I've been using OneNote for a few years. It keeps all my notes and projects in one place. It organizes all of it very nicely. I love how you can add color tabs to help differentiate everything. I wish it had more colors. Otherwise, I love it!
Organizing my life.... 5/5
I love OneNote. I can open it on any device and all my notebooks are available. And the app is so easy to use. I can add photos and share my notebooks with others. It is such a handy tool, I don't know what I would do without it.
By A Good Plumber
Use One Note every day to organize and schedule manpower tasks for each day. Love being able to search back several years to review notes from old projects.
Best Organization App Ever 5/5
By Joe Schmuckers
One can use this app in variety of ways to suit his/her needs. I use it as a planner and a project manager. For me, this app is simply incredible. A complete game changer.
OneNote continues to struggle 1/5
By Run Forest, Run!
In addition to regular sync issues, OneNote experienced a full-day outage on 8/11/17.
Apparently OneDrive celebrated its 10-yr anniversary by creating the 1-day outage.
The outage forced me to return to Evernote.
Prior to this, there were some noticeable improvements in the app. However, a full day outage from a company the size of MSFT doesn't bode well for the #2 cloud company.
Crossing my fingers for more improvements & stability going fwd.
One of my favorite apps... 4/5
This app is one of my favorite apps for note taking, organizing notes and collaborating. I am really glad Microsoft made it available for iPad. It works most of the time well (with a few exceptions ). This is why I gave it 4 stars.
