Awesome App! 5/5
By CDR Mac
Finally Microsoft produced an application that I needed. I am able to organize all my notes all in one place. And the versatility it provides is unmatched. It allows me to do so much with importing pictures, diagrams, notes from other sources....truly awesome. I can use it on my iPad, Mac, and PC. Thank you MS.
Great for quarantine 5/5
By Kayla VanHouse
since everything is online, it great to do notes online!
Desktop Sticky notes to my iPhone One Note app 5/5
Access is great and meets my needs.
Super app! A fav! 4/5
So far the best app I know. I’d give it 5 stars if it allowed sharing editing like Apple Notes and Google docs. It allows several levels of organization for a lot of material.
But I still use Notes and Docs. I wish I could have it all in one...sigh. I limit what I do in Notes and Docs so that I know where to find things: certain subjects in Docs only and certain in Notes. The rest is in OneNote.
Docs contains documents. Notes are for sharing with my wife (great for communication and being in the same page). We share a lot.
OneNote for info and I have a lot of that.
Thank you MS!

Printing is a problem 3/5
Doesn’t print what you see. My note in font size 12 , left aligned, printed out in font size 4-6, readable with a strong magnifier, and was centered on the page. It was in view with notebook lines, which didn’t appear at all. Since it seems to be pdf, it is not possible to copy and paste into another program to print.
One note request 5/5
Can you make it work with the apple watch.
One note 1/5
Really hard to navigate and insert files and many other things on phone and app where as computer is way easier 👎
Lack of Formatting 2/5
Lack of formatting in mobile app is unacceptable for a professional app.
Great tool! 5/5
I love One Note! It’s a great way to organize your work and to be creative!
Simple yet powerful 5/5
By Zahidur :)
It is an app where I take notes and it instantly synchronized with all my devices. The best part is it supports Apple Pencil and I can write all of my thoughts easily.
No multitasking features? 4/5
I really love the flexibility of this app. However, I sometimes need two or more different notes open at the same time. Since iPad has multitasking features, I really wish OneNote adopts to it and is able to open two windows.
Note taker 5/5
By membrane notes
Does all I need and connects with my computer !
Great product 5/5
I’m an Apple guy but this is much better than Apple or Googles offerings. I like being able to have sub categories on my to do lists. Who knew Microsoft could pull this off :)
I love this!!!! Keeps me organized. Better than the notes that comes with iPhone.
Pop up for review? 1 star 1/5
By common summonor
If your genius developers think it’s a good idea to interrupt for a review, you’ll get 1 star. Simple as that.
Lacking Desktop Features 3/5
I converted from my surface pro to the iPad Pro and used OneNote religiously on my surface. I was disappointed to see that the one note version on iPad is much more “iPad” and dumbed down. It lacks certain features such as audio recording while writing and changing to dark mode.
Another thing I noticed is that there is considerable pen lag or some other type of issue. The writing experience is much better on other apps such as GoodNotes.
I had multiple years stored on OneNote and I would love to go back, but some of these are just too big to ignore. If this changes I will update my rating.
Ink to text missing 1/5
By Bob Min
After YEARs and thousands of requests Microsoft still chooses to not add one of the best features in OneNote.
If you are hoping to use this feature beware. MS will NEVER add it if you ask them when. There answer is the nothing... for years, nothing...
Best tabulated note taker ever! 5/5
Needs better organizational approach than tabs 3/5
Great app if they would change that design aspect. It’s ugly and looks weird
Pairs perfectly with iPad mini 5 5/5
By Rafael Castellanos Welsh
I just bought myself an iPad mini 5 and it works just as I wanted it to. Super happy.
It’s unreliable! unstable! 1/5
Was Very convenient and easy to use. I used it for a while and recorded a lot of important things. But I don't know why it suddenly disappeared. In various ways, the app cannot be opened or downloaded again. I couldn't find any contents of the memo within my OneNote from my desktop computer, and all of it was lost, which made me very frustrated, disappointed and upset.This app is too unreliable! Too unstable!
I Love One Note 5/5
I enjoy the use of OneNote in my daily work. I primarily use it to stay organized but am exploring other uses. Get tool which I can access on multiple devices.
Ideal for college students 5/5
I felt guilty about putting off a review of this app for so long but this is an outstanding app. I haven’t used a notebook since I started university. I’ve done and printed out every homework assignment on this app. Highly recommend. Especially for pure maths majors. Or if you have an iPad and a Stylus. If you have an E-textbook, you can screenshot the pages necessary for lecture and take notes on them instead of losing track of the lecture taking down incomprehensible notes. Highly highly recommend *exclamation mark*
A brief review of OneNote—released in 2019 5/5
The mobile program is great. However, when I look at the desktop edition, I do not understand why functionality has been taken away. I used to see OneNote as a bridge between Word and Excel, where the action takes place on an infinite canvas. By taking away functionality, you force me to use Word first, for word processor functions and VBA routines, then copy-and-paste my final text into OneNote. The same is true in regards to Excel, except the rendering of tables in OneNote is absolutely horrid; copy-and-paste will not preserve Excel’s Stylings.
Lastly, I have a great deal of trouble using the new OneNote application on my desktop when all that I want to do is connect to my cloud files; I receive error messages that are incomprehensible. If I were to rate the desktop application, I would give it a 1 instead of the 5 stars that I give the mobile application for the iPad Pro.
The Greatest Note Taking App 5/5
I absolutely LOVE this app! It gives me control of what I take note of and keeps everything organized. The only thing I think would improve it is instead of making it an infinite page, make it one individual page, then as the writer adds more text, add more and more pages. Thank you for this app! I love it!
Toàn bị văng ko dùng được
i can’t create a table without having troubles 1/5
it’s too complicated to create something without the apple pencil, it becomes too hard select some elements
i didn’t like
Poor text and image quality 2/5
Any notes I view on my iPad are more pixelated then on my laptop OneNote, to a point where I can’t read smaller font notes. I saw that this was a common problem online but it still hasn’t been fixed.
Add pencil and brush pen to the draw menu 4/5
Title say it all
It's good 3/5
It's good but there's problem with highlighting in dark mode. The highlight is not bright enough and seems to have its color affected by the dark background, too dark to see anything, rendering it useless.
Also, there is a bug regarding Apple pencil use. Sometimes the pen tip will temporarily write thicker than the point I have selected, making my notes thicker in certain spots. Hopefully this can be fixed in the future!
Good but... 4/5
There’s a ton of freezing
It won’t let me creat a notebook haven’t been able to use it.
Good note taking app 4/5
I use it for all notes. Overall it works very well. I use it with an iPad and Apple Pencil. I hope a future version will be able to convert handwriting to text.
I do have one minor complaint: the filing structure is rigid, and doesn’t allow me to move folders/pages/sections around as freely as I’d like.
Great app 5/5
I’m a teacher. This is a fantastic app to organize my class prep and share things with my students. Don’t know how I’d have managed without it given the sudden move to online instruction at universities everywhere.

It’s not letting me join.
I cannot log in to a different account even after many times of pressing “sign in with other account” I need help.
Writing on top of Printouts WILL NOT Be Attached If Sent as PDF 3/5
By Yuki Asuna
I usually use this app for class and I write on top of the printout. Printout is what inserting a loaded file is called in OneNote. I was trying to send a copy of my notes to a friend and none of my writing showed up! The response time with Apple Pen 2 is also a bit slow; I have to wait for the app to catch up sometimes. The grid lines in dark mode is almost invisible. On the up side, it’s free!
Work in progress 3/5
By Daniel L Myers
Still trying to figure out how it works and what I can use it for.
Good but no font options 4/5
The app is good, but there is no way to change the font or font size besides going in to iphone or pc settings to change the whole device/pc font size. Please add a feature for this!
By Felipe A. Galindo
Works pretty well. Would be nice if they added new features
Sync is not great 4/5
I love the app but hate how it doesn’t sync always, the most annoying stating it’s offline when both devices are connected to the internet.
Also cannot un highlight once you highlight
can’t save files on local disk 1/5
Good software, but you can’t save files on local disk!
By micr0s0ft b0t 01
Bad, but works
Multitask dual screen PLEASEEEEEE!!! 3/5
If I could have multiple notes open at the same time on ipad that would make my life so much easier please make multitask a possibility. The app crashes or gets stuck sometimes and it you accidentally tap any where near the top of the screen you will be shot up to the very beginning without any remorse, ive been on page 320 out of 400 and had to spend 10 minutes looking for where I was because if you had a pdf print out the pages are not numbered and you have to go page by page to get back. Other than those bugs and some minor things here and there the app is good I wish it had more features like notability but its free so can ask for too much but please multitask compatibility would be a god send
I like the big canvas but simple operations are very clunky.
Fix It 1/5
I have a personal Hotmail account added to this iPhone and a business account. This stupid OneNote App doesn’t allow me to switch to my business account. It keeps flashing back to my personal Hotmail. 🤬🤬🤬
three things would make OneNote perfect above ALL others others 4/5
1. Tags that sync across platform . 2. convert handwriting in app, and 3. and true iOS drag and drop
This app is begging for tags to work and sync across all platforms The find tags feature in One Note 2016 is an amazing productivity tool where I can tag todo's in my notes and build my list without ever leaving my workflow. Tag while I note then 'find tags' to see my list across page, section, notebook, etc. But tags aren't customizable on iPad like on Win 10 or 2016. And tags in 2016 don't sync to Win 10. And neither Win 10 OneNote nor iPad have the find tags feature from 2016. So frustrating. Second I need handwriting convert to work like it does on Win 10 and 2016. I still use it on my PC on notes from my iPad but that's a slow workflow. Finally - embrace the platform and make drag and drop work. Into OneNote and out of OneNote.
That said I've tried them all and right now I choose OneNote despite the obvious and painful feature gap. And I have tried them ALL. Well all the contenders anyway: Good Notes, Notes Plus, Nebo, Notability, Penultimate, Liquid Text, Margin Note and on and on. I'm looking for a note-taking app that allows me to handwrite, organizes well, contributes to productivity, and is cross platform. And yes I'm a business user too, so it has to work on the dreaded PC my employer provides.
I love seeing OneNote sync between PC and iOS while I'm taking notes in a meeting. And I love the find tags feature in 2016 to make and organize my todo list on the fly. I also love the ability to organize in notebook, section, and section groups. Sub-pages are handy too, though they should be easier to use on iPad.
All in all a great app - if they could just fix those 3. Okay start with #1 and I'll be incredibly happy ;)
