Excellent note app! 5/5
I have tried all kinds of note apps to find one that best fits my needs, however, not one app I have tried as topped the power, ingenuity, and overall flow of OneNote. When I write scripts and outline, I leave all of my notes on a page so i can reference later. I can’t explain how useful this app is and how tightly it has integrated itself into my workflow.
One of the best features with this tool is it’s organization.
The app is separated into three main parts. These parts are the Notebook, the Chapter, and the Page. Having this level of organization in this app makes it super easy to organize things and categorize things so they don’t get lost later.
Overall, Microsoft 365’s production products are incredible and I can’t think of a single criticism for my workflow.
Well done, Microsoft. Thank you for creating such a useful application. :)
Notes While You Are In a Webinar 5/5
Worried about your notes?
Are you still writing in paper notebooks?
These my dear friends, is what a 39 student face on college grade classes.
Jumping from notebooks to iPads can be really challenging, so organize your notes in readings, webinars or zoom calls with note one.
Visualize or even better, listen the correct pronunciation of your writing assignments notes.
For foreign student’s this is an important tool to have.
Try it, you will love it.

Best Notes App I’ve Found 5/5
After trying all of the free notes app available, I liked this one the most: it supports typing/text features and drawing with a variety of colors (metallic presets + color wheel). I can easily access and edit my notes from both my computer and my iPad, which makes it great for class notes. If you looking for a good notes app for school this is the one, especially since it was one of the only apps I’ve found that let you have multiple notebooks for free. Highly recommend!
I use it for 1 thing I like… 5/5
I use it to write stories. I wanna be an author and One Note really got my mind working on that. I like the different fonts you could use and I could also use it for schedules too! Thank you for making such a masterpiece.
Difficulty in backing up 1/5
By Christopher Yip
It’s all good, with the fanciful book tabs, the abilities to add all sorts of stuff to the note, the hyperlinks, etc. It’s perfect … except that you can lose all your notes or pages in a flash if something should go wrong in the cloud. And there’s no way to recover your notes, because they way to download a copy from One Drive is so excruciatingly painful, slow, that the method of backing is effectively non-existent. It doesn’t matter if you have a MacBook Pro or a Windows laptop with i7 processor, or if you are using IE, Edge, Chrome or Safari. They all won’t work when you try downloading. And the problem is over at One Drive.
Watch app needs help 1/5
By Birthday Freak
Would be great if you could edit noted from the watch
Mobile needs work 4/5
I love the ability to store everything in one place and draw with my e-pen but I mobile only zooms in to a certain lvl. The desktop app on my surface has better zoom than one note on iPhone.
I love OneNote 5/5
I have used OneNote for three years, used to write all my daily notes down and struggle to find them months or years later, I also never wrote enough information down do to space or time. Now I can type as much info as I want and add to it later. I also use it as a check system for to do list to make sure jobs are completed.
Works great for Saving attachments and emails also and I love the fact that I can. Look up issues on my iPhone when needed. I have recommended it to everyone who needs to keep track of daily Issues’s.
The best 5/5
I love it!
Tbis helps me stay on task and it’s easy to send this information to friends and family and potential customers.
I love this app!!
Good stuff 4/5
Love to see more of the features from the desk top verdion
Doesn’t work 1/5
It won’t let me write a name for a notebook. Ive tried it on my phone and iPad. You can’t write notes without the notebook and you can’t create a notebook without naming it. So literally it’s useless.
CUSTOM TAGS 2/5
Why is this feature missing? You even have custom formatting, something even windows 10 version is missing, but then you don’t add custom tags? The fact that tags do different things on every platform is inexcusable at this point. Get all devs on Skype (you own it) and agree on the feature set already.
Scribble issues 1/5
Really disappointing that OneNote doesn’t support iPad pencil scribble feature, appreciate your prompt action to fix this issue.
Can’t close pages on left. 3/5
I am left handed, and I would like to fully close the notebook/section/pages area on the left, but I can’t find out how to close the pages part. You can do this on the PC version, which makes it seem like they skipped this vital feature. Would be a 5/5 if you could close sidebar.
It continues to give me error messages 2/5
...can’t change the title on Workbooks
Dark mode is annoying 3/5
Dark mode is dependent on the phone's dark mode. It would be nice if they were independent of each other.
App pesters you nonstop for feedback 1/5
Beg for feedback, receive feedback
Perfect for what I need. 4/5
By Geoff Lopina
I love how it helps me organize my notes. As a grad student, I find OneNote very useful. It makes note taking easier. It makes my life easier.
I wish that it had the same functionality and features as the Word document like paragraph spacing, indenting, and others. Hopefully those features can be added here.
Ink to text missing 3/5
The Ink to text feature should be present on this app yet they're neglecting to add it. I've done research and found that people have been asking for this feature since 2016 and have not been answered…….
Effortless syncing and great organization! 5/5
Still my favorite after switching from android - it just works!
Sync failures 1/5
By Formal Epistemologist
The app is useless if it is sync failures. That’s it’s whole purpose. But it sure does. All the time. On the newest devices. It’s infuriating.
Great not perfect 5/5
While I love writing and using OneNote to sync my notes from several devices. Some stuff I wish was here. Lining up objects like in PowerPoint.
This is amazing 5/5
By dude ... must have
This is hands-down one of the best apps on the Apple store
Great app 5/5
The one thing that would be nice is that if I make the wrong selection in setting up or selecting picture access I could figure out how to change it without deleting the app and reinstalling it. Thus hoping to be asked again so that I can make the right choice the second time around.
Capture your thoughts but CANNOT CAPTURE SCREENSHOT !!!! 1/5
How come when I capture screenshot, I cannot share it to OneNote?
Keeps crashing 2/5
Needs an update program keeps crashing, was 5 stars until it keeps crashing.
Does not sync reliably 1/5
By Does my name even manner?
As the title states app does not sync properly with desktop version. Sometimes it works sometimes it won’t sometimes the notes will be gone altogether.
OneNote Review 5/5
Please add font sizing to the task bar. This is required because font inserted is not automatically set to the desired sized. Please fix ASAP!
It works 2/5
Good organization and good hand writing interface, but no iPad scribble support, no shape fill, and no way to set the notebook background to default
Feature needed 4/5
Two finger undo, more zoom…
Never used before. Will try.
Wish it was more like the desktop version 3/5
Great note-taking app for school. I use it on my windows laptop when I’m in tablet mode. Only a couple of complaints when I use it on my iPad. There’s no ruler and no pencil to. It’s way too easy to delete my notes on OneNote. I wish it was like the desktop version
My favorite note taking application. 5/5
By F Neri
I may be weird, but OneNote is my favorite note taking app. I am using it on iPhone, iPads and several Macs, including Mac Pros and an M1 Air.
I like the way it works and I use it to scribble addresses and other stuff in a very informal way.
Pretty slick catch all for ideas 4/5
Had some problems syncing across devices but seems to have resolved the issues.
Pls include the option to COPY hyperlink to a paragraph 3/5
By Which nickname is not taken???!!! Please~
I’d love to have the feature of adding internal referring links, which is available to desktop OneNote but not for iOS.
Please add it, then it willl be a solid 5 stars for me.
Worst crap 1/5
I cannot asces it bec idk
Bug Fixes haven’t changed anything. 1/5
My app crashes every 10 minutes and nothing has changed even with the latest update. This has been going on for 3 months now.
Sweet Microsoft Office Suite 5/5
As a veteran user of MS products I find the iOS app versions outstanding. A very fluid workflow and simple elegance even down to the smallest device.
It is worth every cent of the subscription (and I am NOT a fan of subscriptions!). If you do not need the desktop version the price is even better — FREE! That said the price is reasonable for what I am able to accomplish in both personal and my IT Professional life.
I typically start my Word or Excel project on iPhone or iPad then follow up on desktop all seamlessly.
On the desktop an unparalleled OneNote is a go to for business and classroom note taking.
I have to add I am avid Apple fan and user but this suite of tools is hard competition to Pages, Numbers and Notes. But I gotta say Keynote app is my first choice over PowerPoint.
finally fixed the apple pencil bug 4/5
By applepencil doubletap
here's your 4 stars. It took 3 months for them to fix the bug...
Easy to organize notes ! I love the infinity pages 4/5
By Biggest George
I tried notability, but onenote has a much better organization interface.
It’s very good 5/5
To me it’s worth the five star. I always had the app on my laptop but never used it until I saw a YouTuber using it and it’s pretty good. It can be used on all your devices because the sync is epic! I sound like a sponsor but college has never been easier for me personally. I can’t think of anything wrong with it at the moment but it’s really good.
Only ever bug fixes 2/5
Do something substantial for once in an update. Fix the search and todos and reminders in all the platforms for one thing.
Your one of the biggest software companies in the world ever.
OneNote can’t have that many bug fixes that you can only spend tome one bug fixes. It’s been around way to long.
I LOVE IT 5/5
This app is really good. It provides security and enough privacy for a journal and comes with a lot of other great uses
OneNote is all I need to keep my files in one place 5/5
OneNote helps me keep my files organized. I have a different “Folder” for each course. I write down the course objectives as I go on in the course. It is easy to use on the iPad with the added drawing tools. It has made my studying routine easier. I recently discovered how to use OneNote page as flash cards, which is a plus for me. I highly recommend.
Best note app ever 5/5
By I'm despicable
I use this for 100% of my note taking for my job. The best note app ever.
Beautiful and Easy to Use 5/5
By Avian Washington
I have enjoyed using OneNote for years. In comparison with all the other note-taking apps I purchased, NOTHING Comes even close to Microsoft's powerhouse app, OneNote.
In fact, I’ll be using the app this morning to review a convention I recently attended. the only thing I wish OneNote could do is, teach me how to write where I can recognize my own handwriting.
… but that’s asking waaay too much! Great Work, Microsoft OneNote development team!!!
Missing feature, otherwise I prefer it to notability 4/5
By The Karsten
Used to be able to send a pdf printout directly to OneNote though safari and other internet browsers. The feature has been removed, and now I have to go through extra steps of saving then importing the pdf then opening it as a printout. Otherwise 5 stars
