Great for storing all my lists that I don't want to deal with straight away. Take pics and phone screenshots and easily paste them into pages for looking at later. Can have a page of writing or a page of mixed photos and so quick to add information. Also syncs perfectly with my android phone. Love the notebook formats with sections and subpages. Organises work, personal and my various course lists to do perfectly. Would find it slightly time consuming to make things look nice. However like anything, use it often enough and it'll be very simple. Finally another review talks about lack of password protection. Which may or may not be true for the whole notebook but you can password protect 'sections' very easily.
This would be better if the cursor didn't act so erratically: as I'm deleting text, it adds text in front of deletion point, when I select all and it highlights, it doesn't delete the selection after I hit delete, and the cursor lags behind keyboard strokes. This app doesn't sync properly with desktop version. Notebook home screen keeps popping back to notebooks at top of list, making it hard to view those farther down in list. Microsoft, do you even care?
I purchased office 365 largely on the basis of OneNote, also, the allure of OneDrive as being my catch all insurance policy for everything from pictures of my children to my Medical records. To cut to the chase, i lost a huge amount of notes, particularly voice recordings on OneNote. This was devastating I and of itself. Worse, the lack of search or export functions, or even pagination- NONE- because a notebook without pagination means no chronological record. So, you don't even know what you've lost or when the syncing broke down. And don't waste your time trying to get anyone with a pulse at Microsoft to help.
Decent app that coukd be improved. For some reason, the ability to format text is gone on my Galaxy 8. I used to be able to select text and then choose format from the three dot menu. Now the only option is share. Also I have sync issues occasionally.
Excellent app, just wish it had Rich Text Formatting built in like it does on my Kindle Fire. Having to use my tablet for RTF is very annoying. Also be aware that you can't use this app to it's full extent if you happen to be offline; you can edit documents and make new ones, but you can't make new notebooks. Which is very annoying when an idea strikes for a new notebook to start but you happen to be offline or somewhere with little or no signal. Also once you delete the little pop up that allows you to make new notes on the side, it's nearly impossible to find again. I'm not even sure it is possible. Anyway the above is why I rated the app 4 stars instead of 5. Some of this is very basic stuff to fix and I'm not sure why the devs haven't done so yet. Still, it's a great app for what it does include, especially seeing as it's free and available on nearly every OS/platform. I still suggest at the very least you try it.
OneNote saves my quick thoughts as soon as I write them. It syncs automatically between devices. If you have multiple Microsoft accounts, be sure that you remember which account goes with your OneNote info. You can have info from multiple accounts on one PC, but it's possible to lose track of what account you used to create a group of notebooks.
