So the app got updated automatically, and now my pages and sections won’t even load. Please fix this!!! I have important documents that I need to work on
Edit: please please fix this bug. The pages will freeze after a second and this app is proving to be really useless. I’m using this on iPad Pro, so please fix this.
Navigating w/o logic? 2/5
By Hard Head 2
This app seems very good or even great! Problem is how to make it work for me? Maybe I’m not very smart, I don’t know
But wrote one note looked around for the reasonable path to move and can’t seem to find
Oh well just use plain “sticky notes” for now
Great app but battery drainer 2/5
Recently the OneNote app has been increasingly draining both of my iPads battery more than before. I have heard the same from colleagues and peers as well.
GPU acceleration incomplete 3/5
No graphics acceleration when manipulating shapes or images, causing lots of lag and tearing.
It could be better 4/5
By player old fashion
Would you please add a function of typing superscript in OneNote for iOS? I know that it would work through equations but would be much more convenient and improve the using experience. Thank you!
Please do not ask again for a review, if I do write one you will not be happy.
Notebook is helping me develop content for a support group 5/5
Pen enabled 4/5
Good app, vastly improved. I would like to see a better pen integration in the OneNote on iPad. Native apps are much better integrated.
Just learning. . . 3/5
Still learning iPads. Never had one until I got this job. Any tutorials you can recommend?
Has Potential but needs work 3/5
By Dazalia 102994
This could be the best app but listed below are a few features that either need to be improved on or need to be added in order to make this the BEST app (like it is already on its way to be)
-Laggy (Apple pencil, loading of documents)
-Highlighter does not highlight in straight lines
-Round vs square highlighter
-More pen styles
-Lock option for shapes (lines)
-Concept map ability
-Possible line markings for standard paper sizes (optimized for printing)
Can’t open files 1/5
By jerry j milner
Really disappointed in the fact that I cannot open any of my files . Not sure what happened and I doubt that anyone will respond to this to assist
Desktop App and Mobile version not the same 3/5
The mobile version seems to utilize OneNote 2016 which does not sync with my Desktop App. So much wasted time trying to find notes created in one version or the other. Why can’t OneNote and OneNote 2016 talk to each other? Very inefficient!
Great, but could be better 4/5
I truly wish that since OneNote syncs with Windows, there was an ability to have a “Zoom/Autoscroll” box, similar to other handwriting apps, so you wouldn’t have to manually scroll at the end of the screen
Love it! 4/5
Would appreciate if there was the option to add a table and edit tables on the iPhone version of OneNote. I don’t think it’s a hardware constraint, and as a design choice limits the usefulness of the app and makes the experience unequal in functionality across devices. It’s a basic feature that the Apple Notes app has. I know you can’t compare apples to oranges but if you want to organize your information in tables a lot it is really frustrating to have to do all kinds of work arounds instead of having a couple of buttons in the editing toolbar. Please fix. Thank you.
This app is complete
I like it 5/5
It’s a free and easy to use app for digital notes. I like how I can organize a class by chapters and sections within it. The only thing I have to complain about is that when you audio record, you can’t write notes at the same time. I would like to be able to record and write some notes at the same time, that would help me be more efficient.
Use it every day 5/5
They’re getting me hooked, day by day, enhancements happening smoothly.
I can see this small group earning a reputation, certainly believe in their product. Good job.
Crashes a LOT 2/5
By Vinny Chace
This app would be amazing but it crashes a lot. A LOT. It also does something weird where it’s not syncing any of my notebooks so I’m being forced to switch. Currently using this on my iPad Pro 11 for school so it’s super annoying.
Love it 5/5

Great application for Storing Info 5/5
OneNote is your own filing cabinet. Create files and store all kinds of information. Keep your self organized and have a go to app that store’s critical info: Health info,Current medications, show to watch, bucket lists, passwords, recipes,etc.
Love One Note 5/5
It took a while for me to adopt One Note but now I don’t know how I ever lived without it. As an attorney I’ve burnt through an unfathomable number of legal pads over 20 years... no longer! And, I can actually find all of my notes. It works great w/ iPad Pro and gen 2 Apple Pencil. For me and for my business, One Note is as integral as MS Word.
By jasmine greene!
Just disappointed,I downloaded this app to help me with school but none of my things for school are there
Can’t syncs 1/5
By What's wrong with your head
The windows vision can’t sync with iOS
Ok but 3/5
Ok but a bit limited in functionality compared to PC version. E.g default setting?
Many fixes needed 1/5
Can’t scale page size to A4. Hard to print. Slow response and lags. Takes forever to upload , etc
Great app! 5/5
I really appreciate you for this note application. I am using this app for long time and it serves my purpose very well. Thank you for this essential app. Jewel D’Rozario.
I want Calligraphy pen options 5/5
I love this app but I can only choose pen colors and thickness. I want to be able to choose the pen type I want. Such as fountain, ball point, brush strokes, fine tip, etc.
Great for typed notes, only okay with Apple Pencil 3/5
I’ve been using One Note for taking class notes for school. I love that it syncs between all my devices and is incredibly easy to use while typing notes, adding screenshots, re-organizing, etc.
However, I’ve recently started using the Apple Pencil on iPad to take class notes, and it is here that the performance is a little lackluster.
For starters, the Palm rejection logic struggles to ignore my hand resting on the screen while writing. I’ve tried most the different hand-position modes it provides, and they all perform poorly. Often when I place my hand down to start writing, the note will move, and/or zoom in response to my hand being on the screen. It doesn’t happen always, but I haven’t figured out a reliable way to prevent it from happening. A quick/easy fix would be the option to lock/unlock zoom while in drawing mode.
Also, the notebook will often shift under the pencil as it’s writing. For example, if I have a poor internet connection (which I often do) the notification that I’m working offline will shift the entire notebook down in order to display at the top of the note. If the pencil is mid-stroke, this results in a vertical line being drawn from where I was straight up. And again when the notification disappears. The same thing happens if the navigation pane on the left suddenly opens/closes: causing a sudden horizontal line as the note shifts under the pencil.
The lag between the pencil and the display is usually pretty good, only slightly behind the performance in Apple’s native Notes app, though the performance drops considerably if One Note is having troubles syncing with the cloud (again, from my constant poor internet connections). When syncing is slow/delayed, but not entirely disconnected, the delay while writing becomes very distracting, often interspersed with newly-written text disappearing for a split second after writing it. Also quick, small, successive writes can disappear entirely (like several ‘i’s in a word). I’ll write a word with an i in it, and when the word does it’s weird blink-after-being-written thing, sometimes the dot in the I, or the bottom part, or the whole letter won’t be in the word, but the rest of the word will be. Very strange and difficult to reproduce, but I believe it’s something getting lost during cloud syncing in a spotty/unreliable internet connection.
There’s also features missing in this iPad version that are present in the desktop version, like their ‘ink to text’ and ‘math equation’ features. Most handwriting notes on iPad offer real-time transcribing of handwritten notes, would be incredible if the iPad version of One Note could have these features as well.
Overall, again, the app is great and I love it. Writing with the Apple Pencil is only good, not great, but with a little love from the devs it could be just as awesome as the rest of the app!
Fix Print to PDF 1/5
I like using onenote for my classes, but when I went to go export my notes as a PDF it printed as one page. So it created one reeeeaaally large page pdf. This means that when I go to print it, printers are unable to print more than the first portion of the page. Unless I want to shrink it down to be super tiny. Please fix this so I don't fail my classes. :(
Great for tracking to do list. Search function could be better. 3/5
I use a windows PC at work and iPhone OneNote is the best free app that I've found to allow access to notes and share to do lists also with my family. I store things that I need to archive without the fear of Google looking through my content on my google drive.
Unlike the windows version, iOS version search function is really poor (better than before). When searching, it will find the note pages but won’t scroll to where the search term is. And, when searching for multi keywords, results will show any part of the search term, search defaults to the “or” logic and you can’t sforce the “and” logic.
The app is not terrible, but I expected more out of the iOS versions. At least 5o be on par wi5h windows version.
Best Note App 5/5
Most sleek & sophisticated note taking app. Feature pack with free Microsoft one drive storage.
To think you’ll get all of this for free? Will definitely recommend!
Amazing for school, just one feature request! 5/5
Love the multimedia ways you can interact with and take notes on OneNote. The only, only thing I wish it had was the option to turn on distinct page breaks, so you can view your notes how they would appear page by page if you printed it!
Lags too much, hard to take notes 3/5
I use one note to study and take notes, but it lags so much that I often have to restart my iPad or wait to use it another time. I wish I had used a different note taking app initially, but now all my notes are on here so I have to stick with it.
Amazing app! 5/5
Take all my personal and work notes using this and it’s wonderful. I particularly love the organisation, and the drawing ability on the iPad.
By Awdhah Alhamad
I love this app, and all my work is in it. But recently it has been crashing A LOT no exaggeration, literally every 10 minutes it crashes! That’s so annoying. Please fix the app!
Great for public speakers 5/5
Great app for getting your notes together if you speak publicly.👍🏾
Recent update killed access 1/5
I click on the sign in link and sm seny to a blank page. Would have reported this in the app but...I cant get in it.
Best app for notes!!!!! 5/5
By I rock!!!!!!!!:)
This is the best app i’ve found so far for taking notes with or without the apple pencil!!!!!
Nice application 5/5
It’s an useful application. If there can be a dock with frequently used pens and hide the other options would be useful. Just like in apple notepad application .
Love it 5/5
I love it
OneNote is an awesome tool 5/5
I’ve been using OneNote for about a year now and love it. I would encourage others to give it a try.
Terrrrrrrible on iPad. Literally never works, never syncs, never erases.
Better than the $9 app on the app store! 5/5
This app + pdf expert is the best duo! The best free apps ever.
Better than Notability but keeps crashing! 4/5
After uploading a few new notes to OneNote today, the app started crashing on both my iPad and MacBook Pro. It absolutely refused to upload one PowerPoint in particular (no idea why) and ever since then has been periodically closing itself while I’m in the middle of reading notes for a neuroscience final 😤 even though I JUST updated it to the latest version, which cited having “bug fixes”. Also must complain about how it’s impossible to save the notes as a normal pdf or print them out seeing as how there are no page delineations. Every other app has that feature, why doesn’t this one?? (And don’t go telling me it’s because it’s free because this one is more user-friendly than Notability in most other aspects).
Color & thickness changing 2/5
Please add a feature that allows me to change the color and thickness of the pens & highlights on iphone! It's such an amazing app and so useful but I stopped using it for this !
Missing feature to change bullet type 4/5
I’d like the ability to change bullet types (both the enumerated and bulleted forms) on iOS/iPadOS. This standard functionality is already included in the desktop version.
