Opening Saved Articles 2/5
I’m a freelance writer who uses OneNote to save articles. I must have these articles for my work! Sometimes reopening the article is easy: I press/hold the article and get options to “open” “copy” etc.
BUT MANY TIMES my article appears TINY. When I press/hold on the text of the article, I get only options to Cut, Paste, but there’s no OPEN. When I “COPY” & “PASTE” the article, it appears on the page in the tiny, reduced size. I tried to enlarge it by pulling the corners, but it never gets to the regular size.
This is very frustrating, because I have over 100 saved articles!
Thoroughly disappointed 1/5
Every time I open app it tells me to go to settings to delete notes. I can’t even get a freaking note created. It is an utterly useless app from Microsoft which is extremely disappointing to say in the least. Deleted.
Login hell!! 1/5
I used to use this app for everything but for about the last 6 months it is constantly asking to login almost every time I try to save something. I've tried every fix suggested to no avail and I'm basically done. Don't waste your time.
Paper-free access to my info 5/5
It’s like carrying all the info I need in my phone to reference any where and anytime, just need WiFi or 3 or 4 G. I love that you can write hand notes or draw or insert pics. Find files in minutes, no more paper or lost time looking for files.
Sync Errors your account doesn’t seem 1/5
By not happy with Notes
Stopped syncing with iMac, iPad, iPhone.
I like the look and feel but I now use Evernote because the product is junk on my apple devices.
Thanks to my nephew who recommended me this app. I don’t like writing my notes in a physical note book. My nephew recommended me this app. Now I’m really glade to have this app.
really loves it, best note tool ever 5/5
If it can have code automatic highlight would be even better!
100+MB Insecurity? 1/5
Can't Touch ID protect the app?
Can't Touch ID protect a notebook?
Cant Touch ID protect a section?
Way too tedious keying in a password for each section within a notebook.
Side bar 1/5
Before the side bar (tabs) would disappear and you had a larger screen to work it, but now it won’t go away. On my laptop the side bar goes away, I’m not sure why it doesn’t work on my iPad. I even updated my iPad yesterday.
Best note app 5/5
I’ve tried em all and this is the best
By JPelican Texas
I keep lists & reminders of everything I need & do in life, & refer to it all day. It’s great for people with short term memory problems!
No prompt or undo option to recover deleted data 4/5
App does not appear to have option to recover or undo deleted content
Can’t create a notebook 1/5
I can’t create a notebook, so the app is useless to me. There must be a bug, because the “new notebook name” field is not actionable on my iPad Pro, and without that, the “create” button is disabled.
By sabir bro
Please if you can add convert writing to text for iOS too
That will be sincerely appreciated
NOT compatible with MS Word 🤬😡🤬😡 2/5
After reading all the rave reviews on OneNote a few years ago, I switched to it from Evernote, cumbersomely but effectively importing all my Evernote files. I enjoyed OneNote’s way of organizing my files inside the app, but imagine my surprise and consternation when I found out— during a critical crunch point in my work flow— that Microsoft managed to create a NOTES app that canNOT cut&paste nor export to its own WORD PROCESSING app!!! I had been gathering notes intended for larger Word documents, and found that all that time and effort had been wasted— I had to re-type EVERYTHING I had already composed in expectation of using those thoughts in my Word documents. Totally unacceptable. Also, I am not a fan of OneDrive— I MUCH prefer Dropbox or iCloud. These two decisions on the developers’ part make it clear to me that I am not their target audience... so I’m not their audience at all anymore.
Some suggestions 4/5
Excellent note taking app, very useful for school, but it lacks the ability to take notes while recording on the iPad
Best note app 5/5
I wish it can have save and sync option sometime in quick input you make mistake and important data is gone
Missing some key features 2/5
Unfortunately, OneNote for iPad is missing some key features available on the windows version. It would be much more ideal to be able to view 2 onenote windows at the same time. Also, there is no underline feature. In GoodNotes I can select “ink to shape” and my highlighter and pen will automatically make a straight line. This is very useful for notetaking. Unfortunately OneNote for iPad does not have this feature. It would also be nice if I had the option to record lectures while taking notes. Currently, you can’t do both at the same time. Also, would be nice if math and chemistry symbols were readily available.
Excelente aplicación 5/5
Me gusta mucho esta aplicación, es excelente y me ha ayudado mucho.
Best thing I've found to organize busy law office 5/5
I have search wide and far to find something that would allow me to keep my law practice organized, and onenote has taken the cake thus far. My main goal is simply to keep a cohesive list of things to do, and calls that come in, organized in a manner that allows my team to all be on the same page, and for messages to not slip through the cracks.
Other to do lists did not suffice, and I literally tried them all. The main reason onenote works bets is because it allows me to set everything up in a format where there are tabs for each area: to do list, calls, notes, etc, and everyone can see everything very clearly and maneuver between the easily. My only complaint is that there doesn't seem to be the ability to create a checklist where items disappear after ticking them off.
Very slow and unresponsive iPad Pro 3/5
By the res13
I like using the app for handwritten notes. As a graduate student I take a great deal of notes and a note my lectures. The app can handle maybe 2-3 lectures at once. Anything more the app freezes and takes a while before it can even erase a mistake. I find that the only fix is to close WiFi and restart the app often. I use notability and GoodNotes as well and neither has this flaw.
Great but lacking recording feature while typing 3/5
I almost love what One Note offers, but there is one lacking feature that gives me pause to making this my note taking tool—the ability to record while typing. Please make this feature available.
Wouldn’t let me create a new notebook or sync my other notebooks
Still need some upgrades for Mac 4/5
By mr. snuffle up for guess
The ability to back up locally on my Mac would be huge. As well as collapsible sub notes. These are both things to PC version has. Other than those shortcomings for Mac, I absolutely love it!
I used this in school. It helps with organizing all of my stuff!
Love Notes! 5/5
I like the possibilities and the flexibility offered by notes, very useful and practical!
Cannot Sign In - Error Message 1/5
I’d love to try OneNote, however, I get an error message “Problem With OneNote” directing me to settings, Reset OneNote, etc. I follow the instructions and continue to get the same error message. Guess I may never get there.
My OneNote files, 5/5
Accurate reliable and safe.
Better than Eernote 5/5
I like the layout and how often it sync a your notebooks. Notes with pictures embedded in them are great too.
OneNotes - power of easy documentation 5/5
This system is one of the best productivity products around. Easy documentation and collaboration. Search and organization. Only downside is inability to lock sections by user or place select pages for rollback (main data loss is accidental select and cut vs copy)
The best! 5/5
By Humble toe
Love it for its simplicity and ease of use! I organize everything: thoughts, plans, ideas, to-do lists, itinerary etc etc.
App is crashing 3/5
I used to love this app but it keeps crashing and closing on its own 😩
Nice but used to be better. 4/5
The mobile app is nice but has a long way to being as good as the full application. Loads slowly. Search should be present in a box without having to click on the icon. Should have sort capability for pages and sections. Easier templates.
Broken, again, sigh... 1/5
By Hawk GT
Don’t rely on this app. Great concept, but expect updates to break functions. I want it to sync with my online notebooks reliably, but that only happens with some updates. This problem is resolved and then comes back on a regular basis over the past year.
Look at the online support forums and you will find a horde of unhappy users. Find another option.
Windows 10 support 2/5
I want to link my Inspiron 7558 up with my iPhone 6s in the OneNote app on top of Edge and Cortana.
Can’t create anything 1/5
I’ve been trying to start a notebook and it keeps saying location unavailable. I’m stuck
Poor forward thinking 3/5
I can’t believe you didn’t make a service that would let me change handwriting to text in this app. Very poor choice in my opinion. Not to mention I can’t do it in Word at all. UNBELIEVEABLE
Can’t sync 2/5
Storing my desk top onenote on a onedrive for business sharepoint isn’t supported, so I’m not sure how I’m supposed to sync with my iPhone?
Left margin keeps going away 1/5
It’s almost unusable on my iPad Pro. Frustrating since I use it on all other devices. The left margin jitters and keeps moving to a point were bullets or numbering gets hidden. Rebooted, reinstalled and neither work.
Locked out of account... 1/5
I would never pay for a monthly service due to how Microsoft has changed the free accounts from 15 to 5gb and have locked me out of my account. I don’t even have the option to purchase because I’m locked out. Way to treat people.
Deleted my notes automatically 1/5
I am sitting here in my linear algebra class just dumbfounded by the fact that an hour into lecture as I was in the middle of writing notes, suddenly all of my notes I had spent the previous hour writing just disappeared before my eyes. If you like to spend a lot of time tediously taking notes just to have this app randomly delete them, then this is the app for you.
Cut and paste 3/5
Why can’t we have standard cut and paste functionality?
Just one thing 4/5
This app is really useful and does all the things that good notes does but the only problem is that unlike other note taking apps you cannot write while recording so I can either take notes or record my teacher. OneNote already has so many great features, this would just send it over the top.
Slow to open 4/5
Powerful app with powerful features. But too complex to deal compare with apple notes and taking more time to open that app.
Not able to sort by topics and by Notebooks 1/5
Your help site indicates that you can do this, but it is a manual operation,moving tab or topics
System should be able to do do it ascending or other order
Needs updating I am unable to use it on my iPad only on my phone
Like one note 5/5
By Dream Vacations
A file cabinet on all three devices. Laptop, iPhone & iPad.
Search broken. 1/5
I can search for note contents, but when I tap on a search result it doesn't open the note.
Every few hours I get the "you must sign in to sync" message. Why can't I stay logged in?
I don't have this issue on macOS or Windows, just iOS!
Why can't this be fixed?
Really great for notes 4/5
I share my notes that include photos a lot. The only issue is the share feature from the app creates a huge pdf file. You can export at a PC and it is a smaller file, so it is workable but would be nice to generate the smaller file from the phone app.
Love it simple easy and syncs between devices.
