needs more writer tool options 2/5
By Full-PHIL'd In Christ
On Windows devices, OneNote allows several more kinds of writing utensils. On the Mac version, only highlighters and markers with little to no varying width (a feature that most contemporary styluses and systems offer). Calligraphy is nearly impossible in this app, and normal handwriting looks unrealistic.
Common people, update your app. 2/5
I cannot search for certain text on the iPhone app. Major issue.
Great App!!!!! 3/5
I use this app every day. But many times it says there’s a conflict which I have to resolve only on the PC. It says can’t merge changes. I find this frustrating. Please fix this problems.
Stop asking review ! 1/5
Please stop asking review
Written notes frequently glitch around the page, and the lasso tool doesn’t always select everything circled. The app is fine most of the time, but it needs some work
I am done with this app. It has been horribly glitchy and I can’t rely on it to not destroy my notes. Randomly screws up any handwritten notes by squishing it all to the top of the page. Undo button doesn’t undo it, and the “pages history” on the computer app is actually worthless as there was only one previous version from the first time I opened the page. Worthless unreliable app.
I’m Amazed 1/5
I just downloaded the app. First, after opening it, you’re not able to draft a note until you create a ‘Notebook’ in the Navigation Pane, which is very Microsoft… Adding additional steps just for the sake of doing so.
Second, before creating the Notebook, you have to give it a name. When I attempt to by tapping the text field, no cursor appears! No text appears when I try typing either. I even attached a mouse to the iPad hoping I could click into the text field… Nope. The app has a bug that disables the user from entering a name for their Notebook, making it impossible to create!
This simple error has literally made the app unusable. What a waste of storage and data downloading 100MB+ for nothing. I am just amazed that a multi-billion dollar company has managed to pull that one off…
I LIVE from OneNote! 5/5
OneNote is the absolute tool for organizing all of my tasks and projects! It allows you to to expand and categorize both across topics with new tabs and deeper within topics with new folders.
Using one note makes me feel like a library science professional , but actually it just enables me to do my job in a complex organization well.
1 star for constantly annoying me for a review 1/5
I’m trying to work, stop interrupting me
Keeps Me on Task 5/5
By NC Event Planner
OneNote is a great tool to keep me organized. I use OneNote for work and personal notes and lists. I also store my most used replies for reviews, so that I can copy and paste.
So easy to use this was made for anyone to use if you can type a little bit then you can do anyting you want on here great for documents on the go
Frustrating for iPad 1/5
Super frustrating to use on iPad. Very glitchy, most of the time wouldn’t even allow me to create a new notebook. Looking for a different note taking app.
Excellent but you can’t restrict the page width 4/5
I wish the aap provide an option to luck the page width
Frequent Sign In Problems 2/5
Every time I open the app, which is 3 times a day because I am a school teacher, it says working offline and wants me to sign in before it updates the files I have added through the computer. Over half the time when I push the sign in option, it won’t work. I frequently have to go through the settings and log out and log in before it updates the files. I’ve even had to uninstall the app and reinstall it before it will update the files. I love how easy it is for me to write on notes to project to my class as well as the different colors for writing and highlighting, however, it is a hassle spending over 5 minutes each class period trying to get the files to display to even write on.
OneNote - the missing link 5/5
By Office 365 Suite user
Needs more functionality
Lots of confusion between the different onenotes definitely needs consolidation.
Can’t log in 1/5
For the last couple days, the mobile app can’t log in.
Great utility tool. 5/5
By Satisfied Florida Cust
Works great I always have my phone and when I get a random thought I post to One Note And poof it's on all my devices.
Crashes and Freezes Constantly 1/5
I like OneNote, but it is a horrible experience on iPad. I’m using it because I have to, but that doesn’t mean it’s good.
In the first hour of use I’ve had it force close/crash twice, and I’ve had to force close it myself about 6 times just to be able to type.
My notebook has currently 3 pages. It is not large.
Best Note App Ever 5/5
By A Bent Crayon
I use the notes up for complex note taking for various fantasy based projects and I must say, the layout is streamlined, performance is smooth, and it’s no easy to use. Definitely recommend for anyone who want to make notes, even for simple to do lists!
Lost my notes tons of times!
Pretty Good 5/5
Overall it does it’s job, it’s not laggy. And it syncs pretty fast.
Great app but some improvements need to be made 4/5
Great app when it comes to note taking, but I would like a few changes made
1. As you are writing notes and putting drawings in, I would like for the drawings to follow along the text as I click enter or move words around. Currently, I’m forced to move my drawings manually every time I edit my text.
2. No standard page layout which makes it hard to figure out printing. If I write too wide it gets cut off, if I write too long it also gets cutoff at unfortunate places
Alright it’s been years now. Microsoft, add some BASIC functionality into this application PLEASE 1/5
By Darek Firkins
All I want is to be able to add a section group within the iPad app. Currently, I have to start my PC and create the group that way which is just ridiculous. I love one note but this is a basic feature that I’ve been patiently waiting years for.
The only way to manage Work to Home 5/5
I relied on OneNote for every aspect of work, incredible search and easy to manage. Now that I’m retired I still use it from Recipe Notebook (the only way to manage! Eg. Store and save photo’s to your ‘Side Dish’ tab!) Tracking my mother’s Dr’s to favorite restaurants. Easy to share with family and friends. If you haven’t used it, you are complicating your personal productivity instead of simplifying it. Cheers!
No page size limits 1/5
Can’t restrict page to A4. Very annoying.
Keeps asking me to review, it works are you happy now? At least until the next useless update and it pesters me again
Improved review 4/5
Used to rate this poorly but it's gotten a lot better since last time I tried it on iphone. It's definitely better than the Android version. Thank you for page sort and section collapse. But the widgets are still very lacking, and a way to create a home screen shortcut to a section would be nice.
iPhone sync issues 1/5
Two days into a side project I wanted to work on using my phone, and it randomly is locking me out. Error 0xE0001460. Struggling to fix it for 30 minutes.
One note is great on desktop but you lose functionality here and apparently can lose your work too.
It’s okay 2/5
This isn’t the worst note taking application, but it’s far from old.
Awesome - but won’t stay signed in 3/5
By Dookie 2x
I had been giving it 5 starts but for every use I now need to sign back in to my M365 account each time I go to use it so that it stays in sync. It used to stay signed in between uses.
It’s otherwise the perfect interplay with all platforms across my Mac at home ThinkPad for work, iPad and iPhone!
While it’s well tuned for each device making it the ultimate cloud/cross platform app for ideas, note taking and sharing, the big problem I constantly have with iPad OS and iOS is that every time I go to use it it needs to be signed into. I’ll start using and it will give me a warning that I need to sign in, or there’s a problem “error syncing, sign in”. In prior versions it would stay signed in.
Can’t live without it 5/5
Lots to do. Don’t want to forget important responsibilities and duties. Need this app to keep track.
Ipad mini user experience 3/5
I'm using an iPad mini 6 as my daily driver, I like and need to use OneNote, but the side menu is annoyingly occupys a quarter of the display when I need to write down something with Apple Pencil.
Can you please fix this? Is it possible to make it some how like a drawer menu or let user decide to turn it on or off ?
Migrated from Evernote 5/5
I was an early adopter back in the early 2000's. I'm glad to be back on OneNote. The new cloud version is amazing and perfect for my consulting biz.
Doesn’t Sync Table Formatting 2/5
I use OneNote on my desktop PC to make tables. The tables sync to the iPhone app, but all shading is stripped away.
By Dudley Vernon
Love how easy it is to organize different thoughts between notebooks and the how simple it is to view across devices with cloud storage.
Color matching 5/5
It would be great if there was a way to match the color of customized pens.
Constant sync issues 2/5
Constantly having to re-login and authenticate my Microsoft account that is two-step authenticated, because the app keeps giving me you are signed out errors. I’ve tried deleting the app. I’ve tried clearing the data from it. I’ve tried signing out and signing back in and nothing seems to work.
This app is amazing when it works but the constant stability issues of syncing my data make it unusable on iOS.
Nice for me 5/5
By CCP evil
Helps so much with my classes to keep organized. But lots of bugs
Why did you make Office 365 useless 1/5
By B in AMA
Some sort of up grade has messed up my use of any file that is accessible to my iPhone.
Now 5 stars 5/5
They fixed the bug that made me 1. manually request a sync and 2. re-login every time I had to do so. Now the app is actually doing what it should, and gets a full five stars.
Best app for note taking 5/5
Amazing flexibility and simplicity to note take and share across multiple platforms
Best for productivity 5/5
By GOP Gorilla
Works perfectly across numerous mobile devices. I myself, run three cell phones and four tablets, so it’s more productive. I only need to enter data once. Then, regardless of what device I grab, that data is there for my retrieval.
Feel organized again 5/5
I enjoy the organization I am experiencing with One Note - being able to store so much different information in easily accessible folders.
The one feature I feel could make it more user-friendly would be the ability to change the names and/or delete the notebook files.
Better than ever 5/5
I’ve always loved OneNote. I use it for my story ideas and notes, journaling, and planning. For a long time, I only used it on my computer, but when I started using an iPhone, I decided it would be cool to have it on the phone. I’m so glad I did! I love the layout and the features of this app on iPhone. OneNote is now better than ever!
Fixed This pls 2/5
Since the bug fixed 2days ago it’s been acting up lately. When I open the app and click a note it will exit from the app.
Hate it! 2/5
By installing right now 71
I really hate when the cursor jumps around on me from one note to another completely different page. I really hate that I cannot format it the way I want to it’s trying to be predictive and it’s just completely infuriating. And, why in the world wouldn’t there be a save button?
By Franklin holguin
I have all ONENOTE in all my devices, and for me is wonderful the connectivity between all of them
