No more paper!

Since I start using this app, I began to manage my notes and thought for my works. It also helped my keeping my lyrics and poems I always like to read. I'm not saying that this app is perfect in any way but I give it 5 stars because Microsoft did a great job!

Learning curve

I have access to an earlier version on my work computer. I need to transfer thousands of notes from Evernote, but if I can't move notes from one section to another I will be lost. Update - I discovered that if you right click on a note you have the option to copy or move a note. Beginning to see how it could be useful.

Nailed it. Darn near perfect now

The universal version for Windows 10 started out simplistic, but has slowly gained good functionality. The latest full screen drawing as well as working spell check were definitely needed and are awesome. I would like to see the ability to move notes to other sections, handwriting conversion and the ability to turn off display of authors. UPDATE: Pen button issues were resolved in last update. Also a handy color pallet was integrated into the menu bar. Just add the ability to move pages to different sections and this has everything I need. UPDATE 2: Added the auto shapes thing and also the ability to copy or move pages so this is going to be sufficient for me to use 98% of the time. With Audio recording and handwriting recognition this would be a 100% replacement for the 2016 in office version. Again, great work OneNote team!!!

Search by typing 'note'

Please don't make use type One... to search for Onenote. Whenever note comes to mind, we people usually search for 'note'. But there are no results. Instead, we have to search by typing 'one...'.

my go to notebook!

it's simple & basic. it does what it's supposed to. you make notes, lists, you can even draw and it stores it for you and syncs them with all your other devices. it's a good way to save paper and never be without your notes because it will always be accessible at any time.

Great app

Simple, easy to use, and looks great. Has less features than the desktop version for obvious reasons, but very nice indeed. Use it all the time in class for jotting down quick notes.

I HATE THIS APP SO MUCH!!! I bought this 1K sp4 device hoping to take notes in class efficiently but it keeps crashing and freezing!! The pen color option is also limited. I am in organic Chemistry. I NEED MORE COLORS TO DRAW THE STRUCTURES. Why can't I have more than 8 colors to chose from in such a "high tech" device while my friend has 20+ color pens which probably cost her $20 to buy. Also, when I try to open it, there's this white box area and you can't write over it. I don't know if anyone else is experiencing the same thing. Ugh I hate this I'm switching back to pen and paper.

Takes over functions and devices

One note tries to take over other functions when I don't want it to. It will put itself in preference for printing task and other functions that I have to constantly combat. I have to keep relisting my printer as the device to use for printing documents. I can not get rid of it either.

Love the new features, Now work On Consistency!

The UI is finally as good/better than the 8.1 app and I like the new features that you're trying to implement. Consistency is now the main concern that stops me from using this app exclusively over the Desktop app. I don't want to have to worry about losing my notes, or not syncing with the rest of my devices. Editing quirks still need to be addressed. Perhaps more options to disable and enable certain features would be icing on the cake. Moving in the right direction, just need the final polished push. Please add the ability to rotate images! Would be really useful, considering I do use the camera app to add pictures to my notes.
