Handy and Convenient

Handy and convenient to keep a variety of notes. Would like an easy way to align text boxes on a page and draw straight vertical and horizontal lines.

Glitches Way too much

Sometimes my work requires to draw small logos or images with my notes. Before I know it my drawing glitch and half of it is uneven from the other half of the picture.

Product Extraordinare

Everything I know about this product, I love. The 1st of many, auto-save! I enjoy being able to categorize my thoughts and practices similar to a filing cabinet, which saves me a ton of paper and toner, which leaves me money to spend on other items I need for college. The text box features are great too because I can transfer information between pages easily. I would love to go on and on but time does not permit at this moment. Thank you Everyone!!!

Wonderful app

Granted I'm a casual user, but so far I absolutely love this app. The user interface is intuitive and familiar. Plus, I thoroughly enjoy its ability to integrate and sync on multiple devices and platforms. I often use the quick note button on my android tablet as a quick and handy way to take notes on the fly. Well done

Excellent note-taking app! Works across all device!

This app works consistently and quite stably across all my devices, including Apple, Android and all Windows devices. It's awesome to always have my notes sync'd and readily available. Works with my Surface Pro pen, and works in a similar and familiar manner with my Samsung pens as well. Has a handy checklist feature. This app has become one of my essential tools for work and personal data safe-keeping. I don't leave home without it!!

OneNote Runs my life!

I love this app! I have it on my desktop and my phone. Synchronization is pretty seamless. I have my grocery list, work info, all kinds of things that help me organize my information and keep it accessible at all times, everywhere I go. I like the checklist but wish I could clear all the checks without manually unchecking each one--this would be very helpful for lists I use regularly like my grocery list I like being able to use tables, I love being able to format, draw, highlight, import info etc. I do wish I could type information without it going into a text box thingy, or maybe I just am missing something. I also wish I could delete sections without having to log in . . . Overall, this is a tremendously useful too to organize just about everything that needs to be portable, and even if it doesn't need to be portable. I love that I can find things at a glance along the top edge or left side panel

Awesome app for lectures!

OneNote is extremely user friendly and that plays such an important role in efficient note taking. You can type, draw, highlight, etc. ANYWHERE on the paper which is EXTREMELY useful when trying to take notes with professors who constantly jump from topic to topic. Love this app!

Easy to learn

its easy learning how to make quick notes without having to memorize a lot of commands. I don't spend a lot of time om my laptop so one note is perfect for someone like me who doesn't know much about computers

very helpful

I like just about everything one note has to offer. I am currently a high school student and this helps me keep notes along with pictures and other things. the only problem I have is that there is about one or two blank pages always loading on my pc. when I use the one note app on my phone, there is no problem with this.

Live tiles don't update

live tiles have to be un-pinned/re-pinned for individual notes to reflect new titles
