Fix for people who write A LOT of notes 4/5
OneNote is great and very professional. However, it needs to be easier and more seamless to make straighter lines. It's also extremely buggy at times where you write and it won't work unless you choose a different pencil. I take A LOT of notes as well and it this app should be ready for it, not be slow and clunky.
Page Sizing 4/5
By Demetri Chaconas
Please add the page sizing feature to the Apple version of this app!
Bugs Galore 1/5
The last update said it was to fix bugs, but I don’t see how it can be any worse than it is now on iOS 12.
Anytime you start a new tab and start to name it, there’s a glitch where the first U type is trans posed to the end of the word. Then if you want to take a picture after opening a new tab, You then have to close the tab and reopen it to get the icon to show to take a picture.
If that wasn’t enough anytime you try to get the cursor to where you want to type in the page as soon as you hit return it disappears, Like for instance if you wanted to create a double space, or just starts typing up the top of the page. There’s so much wrong with this app right now.
Secure notes are crashing the app with Face ID 2/5
Secure notes were just working fine with finger prints. Got new iPhone and now app crashes with secure section.
Love it 5/5
Great organizational tool for home, office and volunteer work!
Great app 5/5
Love this app
Good but many problems 3/5
Works well when it works.... but recently I had 1 problem then it sort of has spiraled out into many different problems and it’s actually frustrating to try and fix because it’s just random online chats.
By Abraham Fleury
Loved it for a long long time. Have years of notes on the program. Great link on laptop, iPad and iPhone.
However, recent iPhone update has the app all bugged out. Please look into what changes happened. Thank you.
Immediately after opening the app for the first time I went to try out the add notebook feature. The first time I tried to create it there was a problem. After I corrected it and tried again there was another problem. I did this over 10 times and still came across a problem. I was unable to do anything because of random problems popping up. Im just going to go ahead and find another app.
Handwritten notes issues 3/5
There are sync issues with handwritten notes on iPad, which tend to fail sync as the pages get extensive.
Many iPad note taking apps include a zoom mode with easy scroll when writing with Apple pencil, a future lacking in One Note, so you have to zoom in, write, then scroll with finger, very unpractical.
Ink flow could be improved, as is stands behind the responsiveness of apps such as Notability or Goodnotes.
Needs Voice recording sync with words 4/5
Once the app has voice recording that syncs with typing/drawing no other note taking program will be able to touch it.
One note 4/5 4/5
Great for school
Good app and used a lot except... 2/5
Nice app but had to stop using because still doesn’t have tagging feature and loads kind of slow so went to Evernote which doesn’t have these limitations.
Find Tags 2/5
Please add the ‘find tags’ feature to the iPad and iPhone devices.

OneNote es mi complemento ideal en el trabajo y en el estudio.
Keep improving 4/5
By sammy cubed
Content Not Yet Available. 1/5
Ever since last update pages in password protected notebooks will not load. Says content not yet available and then goes blank white. Delete app and reinstalled. Same problem.
Developers Consistently Ignore Broken Things 1/5
Among other things, the developers want to make sure that you're clear that they won't fix basic broken things.
Example: autocapitalization on ios is burnt in. The user can't use OneNote to record urls, or code which requires lowercase letters. OneNote knows better, and won't let you type what you need, but only what MS thinks you should want.
I was just about to buy Office 365, but it's straight up broken, and the plaintive user begging for MS to fix goes back at least to 2012.
UPDATE PLZ READ APP DEVS! 2/5
The latest update has caused a significant bug. I have a lot of power points saves on one note which i write over during lectures. When i switch between looking at the PowerPoint and going back to my Homework folder parts of the image appear lost and the only way for the rest of the power point to show i have to use my Apple Pencil and tap the area which was lost/corrupted. If you can fix this asap that would be great
By Jason's f flaky
It crashes constantly
Only note-taking platform I’ll use for my courses. I like being able to upload pdf’s directly to the pages , it makes taking notes off my professors power point SOOOO easy and I get to save paper in the process!!
By Miss Stacy Lee
I’ll be honest here, I personally dislike all Microsoft products, I’ll use WordPerfect or Pages before Ms Word, and mac or linux over a windows pc any day.
When it note taking, organization, security & cloud based. Ms OneNote is absolutely amazing, i have it on all my devices, 3 laptops, 2 phones, and even my computer at work. If I’m working on something it will sync to everything with in seconds. I’ve recommended this to my boss for all the references & documents that we use at work. I love the search feature and its extremely fast.
So OneNote definitely hits a 5 for me.
By julia student
The app is finicky and doesn’t always work and it can be very frustrating
The best. Should have recording + while writing feature asap. Waited like 2 yrs alrdy still not yet avail. Overall great app
Great app works and does what's expected!
Crashes all the time 2/5
This app crashes all the time when pasting images or text into a shared, onedrive notebook.
Limitless canvas is a massive con 3/5
Along with its poor printing capability. Need to fix this on-going issue. Please add the long awaited functionality of setting the page limit.
Microsoft gets it right 5/5
I use onenote every day and love it. The one thing it needs is better security. If someone gets into your phone or on your desktop they have full access to all your Onenote files. They need to work on that.
Features gone 1/5
I used to have the option to change the mathematical equations I write into text and now that is gone. I’m very disappointed. It’s buggy too. Sometimes when I first try to use my Apple Pencil after opening the app it won’t respond.
Crashes after October 15 update 2/5
Whenever it syncs it crashes. I’ve loved OneNote for so long that, as a teacher I am fully dependent on it. My life is miserable now that it crashes. Please fix it so I can have my good life back. Would give 1 star, but I don’t have the heart to deliver such an insult to my favorite app.
Inconsistent behavior. Unable to use as the app keeps on crashing on me.
Tons of features, but needs to launch faster 4/5
OneNote is a really great app and service no matter where you use it, but the iOS app could really use some optimization, especially during startup.
Was great but now crashes constantly!:( 1/5
Was working great but in the last week it has started crashing. Prior to this it was failing to sync a couple pages I wrote offline. I use password protected notebooks and now I can’t even get to the password screen before it crashes. Please fix!!:(
Good but...... 3/5
The reason I didnt give this app a higher rating is because you cannot record audio and take notes at the same time like you can on windows. This is an extremely crucial function that needs to be integrated soon
Great but slow ! 5/5
By Mohammed Taqi ☮️
Please, separate each slide or page ! I hate the idea that they are merged !
Has gotten worse recently 2/5
I’ve used it for grocery lists, to-do lists, and logging various things and always relied on it...but now I’m looking for a replacement. Biggest issue for me is when I open up an existing document, instead of the cursor staying at the bottom of the page (near most recent text) it goes to the top of page and I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, every time. Also, when I hit return or backspace, cursor jumps back to top of page. Hugely annoying. If this ever is fixed I may go back to it, because it is very convenient to add to a document from multiple devices, but right now it’s too klunky.
Very difficult to link notes... 2/5
To link note, you must find other note, then copy link, then paste. It used to be that you can paste the link using title between two sets of squarely brackets. Even that was very cumbersome, but they have removed it for much more complicated system used now.
On Windows desktop, you can use Control K and dialogue allowing you to search the notes pops up. Without this functionality, OneNote is not really usable if you have more then a few notes and want to link them. I hope that this functionality would be added, but until it is the only version of OneNote that is really usable to me is Windows Desktop one.
At the same time, if a way to link notes is added, I would consider this a five star, best in class software. As is, software is powerful but penalizes power users on any platform but Desktop Windows.
Run from Microsoft 1/5
Every new update of their software contains bugs and wastes time. Microsoft Technical Support is an oxymoron. If you wish to waste time with broken components and deal with completely inept support personnel, then Microsoft is the way to go!!
Lagging in IOS 11.4.1 iPad pro 10.5” 3/5
it is really annoying me when the app lags and stop responding which forces me to swipe the app up and launch it again, this problem happens every time i keep the app opened while i work on in other apps. Despite that I am really enjoying the app and it’s very useful to me as a college student, and I totally depend in OneNote on taking notes and using PDFs printouts inside my sections. So, please fix that issue.
Lost all my notes, takes forever to sync 1/5
Lost all my notes, takes forever to sync
OneNote app does NOT work on iOS. 1/5
By Enter a Nickname!
OneNote app does not work on iOS. It will not sync, it does not allow you to create new notebooks, and is not a functioning app.
Not for macs 3/5
The Mac version is horrible. Period. Syncing is buggy.
Love this app! 5/5
Thank you for fixing the white box issue! Use this app everyday for grad school and couldn’t imagine it without.
OneNote = good. OneNote + iPhone = bad 2/5
OneNote is awesome. Except on iPhone. Wish there was more functionality with IPhone. Synchronizing etc. Can’t really use on my phone and sych to PC like I used to with Android.
After today's update the app crashes in a way that I can't even access the feedback button.
Great for sharing recipes! 5/5
By Momma W sooo cool
I have 3 boys and a daughter and many years ago I started collecting my recipes to give to them so that when they leave home they could still have a little home cooking with them. 💕
Since OneNote came along, I found it easier to share with them and their wives/girlfriends and I could always add to it and they would have the new recipe right away! It’s a fun way to keep in touch and try new dishes!💕
Keeps crashing 4/5
I use OneNote on my PC and love that I can bring up notes on my iPad, but after the last update it keeps crashing on me to the point of being unusable on the iPad. Developers, please help!
Won’t work 1/5
Would love to use this app but it won’t let me create a notebook.
