Crashes every time on my iPad Pro, I’ve updated and done everything others have suggested.
I love my one note app. I keep all kinds of files on it that are easy for me to retrieve anytime I want. I have several different folders with different topics in each one. It’s great! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I think this app is amazing and everyone should get it because it will help you get started writing and not mess up on a job interview.
I really just think this helped me plan for my writing future
Why use anything else? 5/5
Simply the best notetaker
Useful if Clunky 4/5
Using this on my iPhone, the interface is decent, but I have to be careful with things like pictures because it’s easy to accidentally drag or move them. Otherwise pretty useful utility product.
Make it stop
Skool suks 1/5
I use one note at school
Apple watch limit 4/5
I love OneNote and i use it everyday, there’s a limit for notes on your Apple Watch and it’s kinda annoying because every time i want some specific note i have to go to my phone and edit it and sync it on my watch.
Good Notepad for a variety of information 5/5
When coupled with OneDrive, one’s notes are available to you on many Apple and Windows platforms anywhere you go.
Sync Problem 2/5
By iguccuxk i uzycivicu
Love the app on my desktop, but have spent much time trying to get info on my desktop to sync to my iPhone app. It will sync new info from my phone to desktop, but not other way around. Several chat sessions and emails with technical, erased and reloaded program on phone, still no luck, time to change!
Edit: love this app again 5/5
They fixed the issue and now I have no problem using the face feature. I enjoying easy ability to access the account anywhere.
Old review: Used to love this app on my old iPhone but now since I’ve upgraded to a different iPhone, I can’t access my password-protected notes. It freezes and then closes the app. Please fix.
Cannot create notebooks 3/5
By Mtb climber
Sticky notes and interacting with existing notebooks works well. In create notebook, cannot get keyboard to populate to name and create a new notebook.
Onenote- A gift and a curse 1/5
By A sad and sorrowful student
I hate apple & Microsoft for the pain they have caused me lol. I absolutely fell in love with one note & all of its amazing features. Suddenly, it just kept closing & now its absolutely useless. I cant do anything on the app. I hate that I fell in love with this app after about 2 weeks & now I can’t get it to stay open for more than 10 seconds. Thought it did happen after I tried to import a google doc, so hey, maybe I hate them too.

Please fix the crippling typing lag 2/5
I would give this five stars (and advise everyone to get it ) if I could actually type on it. But at even the slowest typing speed it lags terribly. A quick search reveals that countless other users have the same problem.
No, it isn’t because of syncing efforts or any other background activity. I’ve quit all other apps and run the app in airplane mode. I’ve freed up more memory on my iPad. No difference.
Curiously enough, only one other app on my iPad has ever done this: Microsoft Word. This one is on you, folks. In all other ways I love this app. Please, please fix it!!
Mostly great, but opens too slow 3/5
When I need to make a quick note, I used to use Onenote, but it took so long to open that I switched to the built in Apple iPhone note app for quick notes. I only use Onenote on my iPad or for other times when I know in advance that I'll be taking notes and then I just open it ahead of time. Fix the very slow opening and I'll add a star. Just in case you are wondering, it isn't my phone that's the problem. I have the latest, the XS Max.
Not functional 1/5
Downloaded it, went to make a new notebook, and couldn’t enter a name. Completely broken.
Good program, bad app. 2/5
By Yay a pointless nickname
I love OneNote and all of us features. However, this app constantly crashes on me while using it on iPhone. It seems to be whenever it's trying to synchronize that it just quits. I don't have this issue on Android or windows.
Does NOT convert handwritten ink to typed text on iPad 4/5
By Tonya in Virgina
Why isn’t the option to convert handwritten ink to typed text available under the Draw tab? Please fix this. I use The OneNote app available for iPad downloaded from App Store in January 2019. Other than that, this is a great app that I would be willing to pay for.
Really needs handwriting-to-text fixed. It’s been years... 3/5
I love OneNote, but I wish some features worked. One in particular that I see people have complained about for a long time. That issue would be write to text. It either doesn’t work, at all, some devices don’t even have that option, or it’ll select maybe three words out of an entire paragraph, you hit ok, and still doesn’t work.
Long story short, hand writing to text doesn’t work, and it’s been a problem for years, as that’s all you see on the Internet about it. The fact that it still isn’t working after years have gone by, that shows arrogance and ignorance.
Please, it would be an incredible feature to have working, if once and for all it would work/be fixed. One note would be used a lot more, have a much wider range of capabilities, and it’s simply an incredible feature if it would work. Thanks.
Not as intuitive as I would like it. 3/5
Wish I could ask questions or there were instructions
Inconsistent Expirence 4/5
Update - I can start a list on my iPhone, then I can edit it on my iMac, and it still retains the properties of the iPhone so when I check the box, the item gets hidden.
I still cannot the watch for my shopping list
Old Review Below
When I create a list on my iPhone, I get a nice list, when I check the box, the item is hidden. Works real nice in the grocery store as a grocery list.
When the list is created on my Mac or iPad, synced to my iPhone, the check goes into the box, but it does not get hidden. This is inconsistent behavior.
Apple Watch - A list created on my Mac or iPad, synced to my iPhone, does not show up as a checklist on my Apple Watch. A list created on my iPhone, shows up on my Apple Watch as a check list with checkboxes, but there is no way to check the box. This makes the Apple Watch UNUSABLE to me and I am very disappointed with this fact.
Great for writing notes not for PDFs 3/5
I use OneNote on my iPad with an Apple Pencil and it’s great for writing and typing notes. It writes well with the pencil and there are some very useful tools like the lasso select. My main problem is with annotating PDFs. Every PDF I’ve uploaded to OneNote on my iPad look slightly blurry especially zoomed in. None of the PDFs are blurry on any other app besides OneNote. Don’t want to look at or annotate blurry PDFs so I use other apps for that but it would be nice to be able to do it all in OneNote.
Tap here to enter your password 3/5
“Tap here to enter your password”... can’t log in to Sticky Notes... uninstall/re-install didn’t fix it, using same Microsoft account for both OneNote and Sticky Notes as I am on my desktop computers (with the 3.x version of Sticky Notes on desktop)... OneNote portion works fine... 5 stars otherwise
Can't live without it, but iOS 12.1.2 broke it. 5/5
THANK YOU for fixing the bugs! App is now functional again.
Christmas Eve and trying to use my notebooks to make sure I’ve gotten everything done, and OneNote is constantly crashing. Not what I needed today...
Once you figure out a groove with organizing your info, you'll never go back. Finally one place where I can keep everything!
Recently wrote a review giving 4 stars 5/5
I wrote a review yesterday after months of being annoyed with my app crashing. I still gave it 4 stars just wanted the bugs fixed finally. How about Microsoft sent me an update TODAY and the problem is fixed! Talk about fast! I have my favorite app back now for all my projects! Thanks so much! I’m writing a new review bc I can’t figure out how to update the previous one. 5 stars!
Ps. Wanna consider a finger print scan to login ;)
Live is easier 5/5
Notes make my life easier by having all sort of records in one place. Easy to edit, write, simple format and great features
It’s really good and on many platforms. 4/5
By Pensacola Mel
I’ve recently gone back to school to finish my bachelors degree. This is a great class note book. A different note book for each coarse. It’s also good for general note taking and reminders. Lists too.
Exporting pages from the modern one isn’t easy especially on the pc. It is easier on the iPhone because of its native ability to make a pdf out of almost any page. Now the old desktop version it is easier than the modern one. Neither version is as good as Notability at exporting or voice recordings. Notability isn’t on windows and I have a surface book 2. It’s a good program that needs improvement.
Was my go-to iPhone notes app but not for quite a while 1/5
Very functional, yes, but syncing with the cloud and especially with other devices is slow and unreliable. Microsoft’s sync issues are longstanding and legendary. No longer usable. Seems like things have gotten worse.
Just noticed with new releases that it won’t work with apples Bluetooth keyboard although every other app on my iPad does. Touch Command or Enter and OneNote crashes losing some of what you had been typing.
Not much improvement in a year and reliable frequent crashing is a show stopper.
It appeared to get stuck on one photo 2/5
I left my phone downloading and plugged in overnight. The next morning it was still downloading the same photo. The concept is excellent if I can get it to work.
Easy and reliable 4/5
I love the way you can have multiple notebooks. I need to be able to lock each notebook and would love to see hashtag style tags.
Onenote restarts 4/5
By jon doe snow
Without internet IT restarts frequently
Story Ideas 2/5
I just started using this app again and so far it’s good. I still need to try it out more to be sure. But I use this along with my android phone to write ideas and post pictures. Where’s the sticky note function on the Ipad version of OneNote though? I write quick ideas with those but I can’t find it on this app. Please add that function soon.
Edit: My ipad keeps de-syncing from my phone so it keeps forcing me to go to the website to delete the unmerged page which is just a few words that just didn’t sync up yet? Please fix. This is really annoying.
Buggy but OK for most part 3/5
By Randall King
Let's start with bugs (or bad design):
• Every time I open this app, I have to type both my username and password to access a OneNote file stored on our on-premises SharePoint 2013 server. Why can't the app just remember my credentials? Even after I enter them, the "Tap to enter password" bar won't go away no matter how many times I tap it.
• Why, every time Microsoft Office apps are updated, is the download 200-300 MB? Has Microsoft not heard of delta updates?
Otherwise, good app!
• Other than the items above, it mostly works like you'd expect.
• Microsoft has created a powerful notetaking tool that is also easy to use. That's not an easy feat. OneNote is the best of its class.
Please update! 1/5
Keeps crashing on iPad, please update soon!!
Needs an update. Crashes after about 10 seconds
Buggy, unreliable, hate it. Use Evernote, which is better.
Please add pencil 2 support + sticky notes on ipad 3/5
Please add pencil 2 support
Crashes on a Regular Basis 2/5
I love this app as it has helped me tremendously. For the last month it has been unusable because it continues to crash every time I try to use it or transfer material to the app. If anyone has an idea as to how I can remedy this problem I would appreciate it. I am hesitant to delete the app then reload it, for fear of losing the current content. If I could figure out this problem I would have given five stars, but at this time it is useless.
Keeps Crashing!!! 1/5
Notes get randomly deleted 1/5
Big glitch. Your note pages get deleted randomly after you take them on the watch. For example, I’ll dictate 10 pages, and then the next time I look there’s only 6 pages of notes.
The second biggest problem I see with the app is there is no glance option! Why not? Even the notebook app has this. So does bear, and other note taking apps. Please add this!
Syncs great 5/5
By Nickchole sky
This app is great for productivity. It syncs great between windows desktop at work and iPhone
I primarily use it for notes and tasks.
Won’t Open 1/5
I would love to use this app and I use OneNote in my office but the app won’t open on my IPhone X.
Essential organizer 5/5
By Don. S.
As a Principal, I have found OneNote to be an extremely important and helpful tool to keep my notes, various meetings, and school and staff organized.
Great App 5/5
👍🏽 but improvements can be made 4/5
By Just Curious 👀
- all subpages should be collapsible
- wrap around text option for page titles
- overall guide on what format options stay consistent across window applications when I’m copying/transferring work
Good but I wish you could scroll with your finger and draw with an Apple Pencil... so many basic notes apps have this and it doesn’t make sense for this not to have such a basic function
It crashes 2/5
By Niki bees
It’s nice on a desktop, however it crashes on iPads
