Poor handling or large sections 3/5
By David, of the Hill People
Very slow to scroll and missing the "collapse" feature.
Doesn’t sync between phone and computer....troubleshooted with the best and can’t make it work. Could be more useful if technology was better linked
Handles all my use cases, but doesn’t handle PDFs and lags with lots of writing 4/5
The undo button sometimes is disabled.
PDFs are imported at very low resolution images not vector graphics.
Too many notes on one page will cause lag.
Overall however it is very good and recently has been getting a number of small improvements.
Crashes constantly 1/5
I cannot stress enough how atrocious this app is. One of the worst, most inconsistent apps I’ve ever had the displeasure of using. In the last hour of studying for my exam, the app has crashed on me 6 times and frozen on me twice. Rest assured that I will be transferring all my notes to another note taking app and never spending one more second on this dumpster fire of an app. Have a blessed day!
Misleading app screenshots 2/5
I was looking for an app to take notes and draw sketches with my finger on iPhone. One Note does _not_ have this feature although app screenshots suggest it does.
Love this App 5/5
It’s perfect for college students to keep all notes in one place
Apple Pencil Pressure 3/5
Support for Apple Pencil pressure sensitivity can be improved by a great deal. Currently, it’s no match to Apple notes or Notability.
Can’t access my other notes 1/5
Please let me use as an offline device in addition to occasional sync i am not on wifi all the time and it’s a waist of time syncing
Just what I needed 5/5
I really enjoy doing handwritten journaling, and this is the best app that I’ve found that (if you turn “draw with touch” off) I can lay my hand on my screen comfortably without it interfering with what I’m writing. I also like how you can keep things organized and see what you have on other devices. The different pens are pretty cool too.
The app crashes every time I try to copy and paste for the past month. I use the app for my sermon notes. Every time I copy from my bible app and paste into One Note the app crashes and closes completely. I have just tried deleting the app and hard resetting my iPad. If the problem is fixed, I will update my rating.
Not good for iPad 1/5
By azhdar barghi
It’s good on the pc but on the the iPad Pro 2018 is not working good, many of future is not working
Good! A couple of updates would make it great. 3/5
I love the way I can easily organize notebooks and search within them quickly. However, it would really be helpful to have two updates: 1. The ability to convert handwriting to text on the iPad (as Nebo does) 2.The ability to copy and paste text from OneNote into a program such as Word or Pages without running into all kinds of crazy formatting issues.
So Far So Good. 5/5
By Cat ba lou
I have used this now for about a week constantly. I am an amateur writer hoping to break out. I have my first draft on here. I think your privacy ready now to trust my work on here. Thank you for you dedication to excellence.

Apple Pencil lag issues 1/5
This application was amazing until my Apple Pencil seems to No longer be compatible.
Everything in one place! 5/5
I love, love, love OneNote! You can have everything at your fingertips. Watch some YouTube videos and get started today. I have notebooks for work with project tabs, notebook for church with different tabs and pages for ministries and projects as well as a home notebook with inventory and emergency numbers for the house and a personal notebook with tabs and pages for financial, medical, wish list and to do’s. I’ve used other similar apps but OneNote is my only one I use now. I think OneNote is the best thing since sliced bread.
Grade A App 5/5
By far one of my favorite apps
Truly a headache 1/5
This app causes me daily headaches and never syncs when I need it to. It is thoroughly inconvenient, and it has way too many tabs and links to truly be organized and affective. I would never recommend this to anybody.
Great for note taking but stylus support needs improvement 3/5
App works well for organizing notebooks, but writing with Apple Pencil isn’t without flaws. Palm often registers as stylus.
By Navid Akbar
Simply the best note taking app. Period.
It doesn’t work 1/5
I have not been able to create a note on my IPhone. It gets to the page to title it, will not let me do that and pressing the create button does nothing. I am probably doing something wrong but it should be easy.
My review 5/5
I like OneNote very much but have a few problems with it
I can’t open some attachments/files that I save into it
It is challenging to move folders around on my iPhone
I would like to be able to open files on my iPhone that are saved onto/into pages on my phone and then email or text them but can’t figure out if this is an option
I have looked for help to learn how to do these things but can’t find anyone to help me
Being a OneNote user can be frustrating because I can’t find support to do these extra functions that I regularly need to make my work more functional
Sticky Notes sync error 1/5
Some of the notes I deleted from PC still appear on my iOS OneNote.
Clipping from iPad mini 4 3/5
I am very new to OneNote. Been with Evernote since 2010. I am enjoying the format etc with onenote much better than Evernote. However,the clipping with onenote compared to Evernote or even notes, is thus far pathetic. Microsoft needs to rectify this in a hurry and in a big way for me to commit. Sorry, but I totally expect more from Microsoft. DISAPPOINTING!
March 2019 update: I'm still off and on with my note taking with one note. I am once again after quite a long time away from one note trying to hopefully find it's improved. I'm one day into it and already I'm ready to give it up for good! I can't seem to get one note to sync between devices worth a 💩! It's the worse sync I've seen. It's not good at all. Very unreliable actually. I hope they improve please!
OneNote review 5/5
I’d recommend the app overall but some things that bother me. Needs to have more writing utensil features, should offer a setting to shift the page while writing, make it easier to import files on screen. All can be fixed in updates
Great app, great customer service 4/5
Use this app daily for college assignments, note taking, doodling, etc. Reported a bug and received instant confirmation and the bug was fixed in a little less than a month.
All time favorite note taking app 5/5
By Artistic Skillet
I love OneNote because of its simplicity in style and user friendliness
Not user friendly 1/5
Would not let me sign in with my Microsoft account, no matter what hoops I jumped through.
It be convenient to have the sticky notes as a widget for iPhone
Not bad 3/5
It is good for free
But if your book is scan this program have bugs and exists from program
Need to support new Apple Pencil tap 5/5
Why can’t I use tap pencil to use the eraser.
Otherwise it is a great note taking free app.
Changing stars to 4 stars because of adding Apple Pencil 2 support. But now you broke the lasso feature because using it makes selected ink size bigger randomly..
Edit: March 13, 2019
Changing to 5 stars because the previous issue was fixed in a new update.
Taking too much space 3/5
OK. But sync occasionally fails. Most importantly, it takes too much space.
Best notes! 5/5
Keep up with all your most important docs on every device effortlessly.
반응성이 느립니다. 4/5
업데이트해서 개선이 되면 좋겠네요.
슬라이드 옆에다가 필기하기 좋아요.
자주 쓰는 펜 설정도 일일이 바꾸지 않아도 되고
반응만 좀 빨랐으면 좋을 것 같아요.
Impossible to even get started using
Still no native sorting function after all these years 1/5
It seems to me that one of the most basic functions of any program like this is to sort notes alphabetically (or some other criteria). It's 2019 and computing has been used to do this forever! The only solution is a third party macro available only in Windows. I use this app on my Mac and iPhone so the recommendation from Microsoft is to manually drag and drop your notes in the order you want to sort. Shameful!
A new idea 5/5
In my opinion , the next update should contain the ability to change font size , color and fonts so that can make us creative when it comes to lectures writing
A Fantastic Information Organizer 5/5
OneNote's design to mimic a 3-ring binder Notebook makes it very easy and intuitive to use. I have set up 14 of these electronic 3-ring binders in OneNote to organize all aspects of my life. It keeps track of everything I need to remember, all tasks I need to do, and stores truckloads of reference information at my fingertips. It can insert as many additional Sections (notebook divider tabs) into each notebook as you might want to add at any time, and easily rearrange the order that the Sections appear in. It can insert as many additional Pages as you might want into each Section and easily rearrange the order that the Pages appear in. It can move pages to different Sections, or it can move Sections and Pages to different Notebooks if you ever decide you want to move any of them later. Each "Page" can be as short as the smallest yellow sticky note (and you can have as many of those little yellow sticky note Pages as you want), or the Page can expand to become as infinitely long as you want to make it. OneNote is doing all those things for me in simple text mode. I have not yet learned how to use OneNote's advertised abilities to insert photos, audio files, video files, PDF files, and business presentations onto each Page. I can hardly wait until I learn how to put audio/voice notes onto a page so I can almost instantly capture fleeting ideas as I walk around. If you are thinking about getting OneNote, don't hesitate. Get it. You can't go wrong.
App crashes half the time and I have to start over
LOVE IT 5/5
I enjoy it so far
please make this more customizable 4/5
i looove this app when using it on my ipad and apple pencil for taking notes in college. I hate how I cannot lock the orientation/zoom aspect of the layout to prevent the page from moving left and right. please make this an option!!!!!!
Ok notes app. Let’s make it better 4/5
This app has replaced GoodNotes 5 and notability for me. That’s really good. I really like the feature of making more space between lines of writing. It looks like Microsoft is finally getting a very polished product, however there are still a few annoying things onenote does that causes friction in my workflow. If I were to highlight something, such as a vocal word I don’t know and want to erase the highlighter only, there is no way to delete the highlight in an easy way without deleting the words as well. Also there’s terrible tag support iOS. I want to make my tags like in the BEAR APP!! why is this so difficult to develop?? Idk, idc, but I want..no I need it. Onenote is the one stop shop for synthesizing typed notes and digitally written notes, but is still has many features such as the ones I highlighted that prevents it from being a treat to use but rather a tool I’m forced to use.
Best to worst 1/5
It was best now it worst .. page doesn’t load and having sync issue
Nice but crashes 2/5
Great concept and nice app, but only when and if it works. Crashes half the time which isn’t great when you’re trying to take notes for class
Cursor keeps jumping to the top 4/5
By Maximus Spiritus
There is a current bug issue where if I hit enter or return the cursor jumps to the very top of the screen and does not allow me to continue typing
I am unable to sync with my work laptop and the iPhone.
Sync problems with iOS 2/5
Great note making app, but I have to sign into MS every time I use it on an iOS device. An issue that users have called mplained about for some time, but MS has done noting.
Great app! 5/5
By CAP NATiON
This app is very useful, I love it!
