Microsoft OneNote app reviews

  • School 5/5

    By scifibuff
    One note helped amazingly for my ELA class, but I wouldn’t say that it helps with math class as much has ELA
  • Improvement 4/5

    By CarberrySasha
    Needs better integration with Apple iOS But still very good
  • It was great until it deleted all of my notes 1/5

    By NadiiaM
    I really loved how simple this app was and how easy it was to take notes with it. But recently it started crashing erasing everything I had going for weeks leaving me crippled with the work that I had to do or stuff I wanted to remember and now it was all gone.
  • Cumbersome 3/5

    By rtspyder
    Very difficult to use
  • I like it! 4/5

    By Nay_ks123
    Easy to use and haven’t experienced any glitches as of 3/24/2024
  • Could it be more complicated ? 1/5

    By xxxxxed
    Hate it
  • I pad syncing problems 1/5

    By Normally understanding
    Apparently there is no way to force a sync on an I pad. So hopefully one day it will sync and I can work with my notes on the other devices…
  • Needs a redesign 3/5

    By Aloneipadmini
    As much as I’m into the organization strategy this app uses. I’d prefer something with a design like goodnotes where you see your notebooks as skeuomorphic representations of real notebooks rather than a clunky side tab.
  • Stickey notes is broken 1/5

    Stickey notes stopped working. I am sure y'all will fix it...
  • Great with One Issue 4/5

    By The Shadow Review
    Great for the most part. I sometimes encounter an issue where the scrolling becomes very choppy until I force close the app and reopen it.
  • Chris Houston 5/5

    By Krasimir Houston
    Thanks a lot. App is really perfect for me.
  • Stupid app 1/5

    By ShortMami
    Wont let me use a different email so I can’t even switch to my school email and look at my notes 🙄 just use the website at this point
  • Suggestions 4/5

    By OoRyan42oO
    Pretty good! This app would be perfect if it had: - Ways to create tables on mobile. - Lists which send reminders based on time or location. - Text formatting options on mobile (highlighter). Big ask… - Transparent page overlays/layers which could be toggled (think old school, transparent, overhead projector sheets).
  • One note App 3/5

    By vmbvchh$
    It does not sync well and takes lot of time to load…it is useful to have all things one place but because it does not sync well and not fast I always keep switching back to google keep. Hope it loads faster and syncs better
  • Syncing is terrible 1/5

    By CindR214
    I primarily use OneNote for work on a MacBook. Installed this app so I can work out of pocket but notes aren’t syncing. Seems like there’s a 1 week (not exaggerating) delay. I’ve tried deleting/reinstalling, logging in/out, etc. We aren’t talking about a ton of data; one notebook with five sections and each section has 5-10 pages of maybe 500 words. I can’t believe the option to force sync isn’t available in the app. Obviously I need notes to sync in real time so I’m deleting this app and moving back to Evernote.

  • OneNote has change my life 5/5

    By Knightman86
    I have ADHD and all my life I have been trying to find a way to organize myself and keep all my information in one place. My work requires me to remember massive information, which I would never be able to remember on my own. I just wish I knew about this program while in school it’s a great research tool. . Thanks Microsoft
  • Syncing issues 3/5

    By ATLRG
    Works great on iPhone. However, if you’ve put it on your laptop in order to keep it synced with phone, notes on laptop are constantly disappearing. To get them back, the recommendation I found is to delete the app from laptop & reinstall. Who wants to keep doing that? Creator needs to fix the issue. Then it’d be a 5-star for me!
  • Amazing App 5/5

  • Great app 5/5

    It’s a pretty good app. Wish I could attach some pictures to the days. It used to let me do it, but it won’t now
  • Undo?! 4/5

    By Anon23xxx
    Needs an Undo btn, biggly!
  • Easiest and best tool for notes across devices 5/5

    By Jim Byers
    With the most recent update making the note taking with an Apple Pencil much more clean and easy. I wholeheartedly endorse this app. The interface is clean and easy. Adding space and shrinking space where you need it works great. The tool are right where you need them and now without the extra text you don’t need, you have immediate access to more pen presets. The fact that you can search your hand written notes is amazing. Even with my really bad handwriting it does a better job than me recognizing some of my words. It’s a great tool synced across all of your devices and platforms. If you have an iPad with a pencil but work off of a windows system. This one is a no brainer. If your a Mac user it works great there also. It handles page space management better than some built in options you have. It also does a better job searching. The note or section locking is great for privacy. Give it a go you won’t be disappointed. If you are post a review so others know and the app developers can make it better. Lol not affiliated with this app. Just a fanboy getting some really great use out of it.
  • Sync issues 1/5

    By KDfree
    Can never ever get the app to sync, no matter how often I re-login, force close, etc. App decides at random times to sync and can never be sure I am seeing current version of things. Super frustrating.
  • Something broke with last update 1/5

    By Ebelville
    Apparently with the last update, when I search for a note and the search is completed, when I click on the item found, it won’t open. I reinstalled the app and same result. Also, rebooted the device. Not fixed. Can you assist?
  • One Note is great and simple! 5/5

    By JaGuAr Pe
    I draw black and white. I am learning as we go…and what I like about One Note is that it is simple!
  • Drawing options 2/5

    By Mindlessthinker
    I can’t figure out how to change the drawing pen color to anything other than red. Is it just one color? Do I have to pay to unlock more? It’s unclear.
  • Wow 5/5

    By aeuis
    I love one note, however sometimes when I write on my Lenovo laplet with a integrated pen it glitches and starts going up and down, writing everywhere. Overall one note is a life saver, especially for students like me☺️
  • Keyboard arrow keys 1/5

    By KrunchDown
    The latest version is BROKEN! Arrow keys when using magic Keyboard do not work (only in this app, working perfectly in everything else). Online answers are insultingly useless. Of course the app is the latest version, and of course I’ve already turned the device off and back on. And repeat, the keyboard works well in ALL other apps. THIS MAKES CORRECTIONS WHILE TAKING NOTES EXCRUCIATING!!!
  • Key stone app 5/5

    By Sgatoday
    You Can save emails, organizes notes, and create email templates. OneNote Helps me work more efficiently.
  • Wow 5/5

    By evan m b
    Huge onenote user for several years. My entire life runs in this app, both home and work. The iPhone app is everything you need, nothing you don’t. Only thing I wish it had was the ability to add multiple kinds of markers other than just checkboxes, but besides that it’s perfect.
  • Useful but flawed 3/5

    By MrShutterBug
    I need this for school but it’s not great. Its buggy and stores too much data, it takes up 1gb for me because of it
  • Needs enhanced formatting 4/5

    By HopefulSomeday
    Give us more of what Word already has. If you’re not already using a common code base I can only ask why not.
  • Overall great 5/5

    By Claret Rodriguez
    I keep one note to have my character sheets organized v neato, helps with world building character design timelines and GREAT for note taking
  • Helps me keep up with college 5/5

    By vanessagh
    OneNote has helped me keep up with my college homework and notes. It allows me to do different things such as use the drawing tools to take handwritten notes, and also to type whenever it’s most convenient for me. Another big thing I like is that the canvas is infinite, and the app gives me templates such as different sized squared paper and lined paper. I can edit PDFs, add photos, add charts, etc. I can see my notes from all of my devices without a FEE! It’s completely free which is important to me. There are some downsides, however. I am taking math courses which would require me to have a ruler, and although the app on my laptop does have a ruler, my iPad doesn’t. Now, i can always switch to my laptop when I need to use it, but it would be more convenient for me to have it across all of my devices. There are a few things that could be changed to make the OneNote app more aesthetically pleasing, such as a better highlighter when using dark mode, because I can only see what I’ve written highlighted but cannot see the rectangle. Again, this isn't a big issue but a suggestion. Overall, I am very happy with using OneNote. It’s a MUST for college students!
  • Does not sync with laptop 1/5

    By Safe in CO
    Disappointed that one note on iPhone does not reliably sync with laptop.
  • Autocorrect 3/5

    By Iowa1701
    Need to be able to turn of autocorrect when using handwriting to text feature. Write a lot of technical notes that keeps getting autocorrected to incorrect words. My iPad autocorrect is turned off, along with spell check, but does not make a difference.
  • Productivity Workhorse 5/5

    By garzapix
    OneNote for Windows 10 is my goto application for my PC! The iPad OS version integrates very effectively between platforms. I use this AP on my iPad Mini for handwritten notes, on my iPad Pro for report writing and both seamlessly synchronize exceptionally well. Kudos to Microsoft for this application.
  • Perfect but could be even better 5/5

    By SimpleRunner
    OneNote does everything it sets out to very well. The only improvement that would be beneficial is to offer an option to search via regular expressions (regex).
  • Handy 5/5

    By avinial
    Love the handiness of it
  • Won’t sync 1/5

    By Dieseltuned
    It keeps asking me to input my password and then nothing happens, it won’t sync and then it asks me to input it again.
  • I use to love 2/5

    By Alexandrajanda
    I have OneNote on both my iPad and MacBook. I use to love OneNote but now it signs out every 2 weeks and it takes an act of congress to sign back in, also on my computer sometimes it won’t allow it to sign back in. I’m on day 3 and it hasn’t allowed me to sign in so my iPad and computer haven’t sync’d. so I am very frustrated. I use it for school and I really need them to sync properly and allow me to sign in on the first try.
  • Terrible experience on iOS 1/5

    By I miss my PalmPilot
    Buggy. Sync failures. Confusing interface.
  • One Drive 1/5

    By barryj508
    We have this company-wide and I have no idea how to use it!
  • It has a learning curve… 4/5

    By TryTONYjr
    You just have to use it and the rest would follow… Practice makes perfect!
  • Missing AI and Handwritten analytics for iPad gen 6 and Pro 2/5

    These features are already in Apple Notes and in Notability. Microsoft is seriously lagging behind.
  • Sticky Notes Sync Issues 3/5

    By RonP1979
    I have been enjoying OneNote, but I have been very irritated lately, because these sticky notes now are not syncing on my devices. It’s asking for a password, and then, when I try to enter it, it disappears, but does not let me sync my notes. Another problem is that I can’t seem to get any customer support from OneNote to fix the issue. I know that this is not a isolated issue, because I see others with the same complaint. This has happened since the recent update. I do hope that they fix this soon or I may have to try another productivity application.
