Great for organizing your busy life

Like that I can have multiple note books and can share with different people. Nothing comes to mind that I don't like.

Awesome, BUT...

I really love this tool and other that Outlook and Excel this is one of the most under rated tool in any office, HOWEVER, the mobile version does not allow for free drawing notes and it would be awesome to be able to include connected Mind Map drawings into this tool. The mobile one also does not connect tasks to outlook tasks.

MY OneNote!

I am a writer and OneNote is absolutely essential to me and my work. With other note style apps I have tried, there were too many options. It is as though they are trying to evolve into another word processor rather than staying simple, which is what a notebook app should be. Lost among the fonts and page layouts and colors there is a save button that needs to be ticked each and every time you navigate away from the page. I can't begin to tell you how many times, in a rush of inspiration, I have made a note and clicked back to my browser only to realize my note was gone. OneNote automatically saves anything you write without you needing to manually do it. It's as though they tailored OneNote specifically to a writers needs. I save links and they are actually useable in OneNote! If I need to reference a prior page, there is no searching involved! I just access it from my OneNote! I wouldn't THINK of working on a project without OneNote open and ready in my taskbar! I ADORE it!!

College must-have

OneNote with a surface tablet pen is the only way to go. I hand write all of my notes on here. Also, it's easy to split-screen Also, it's easy to split-screen my online textbooks and my notes. The only thing is that the app version or tablet version is way better then the desktop version if you are using pen.

Dissertation Tool

My favorite thing about this app is that with wifi, I can access my desktop sources on my laptop computer. I love the "checkbox list" function. I'm still figuring out a few things and I know this app is more versatile than I am currently using it for. But it's a great place to keep disparate resources in the same place - especially sources that won't show up on my final bibliography (tangential Wikipedia articles, for example). I don't like the app's invasiveness - that I'm required to log in with an email address I don't ever use and can't remember. I'm absolutely paranoid about losing the password, because I'll never remember it if ever called on to do so, and I don't use the email address associated with it. There are a few formatting issues - copying and pasting from static documents (.pdfs, mostly) can be awkward. Text boxes aren't clearly separated or controllable, and since I work mostly with text, that's discouraging.

Good, but not as good as onenote that comes with office

Good, easy to use, great for a mobile phone. Gets the job done. OneNote with Office is still better for a computer or Surface. Would be nice if you add the feature to move words/sentences around the same way as OneNote that comes with Office, instead of cut/paste to move things around.

Very useful app

This app is a great tool for taking notes and accessibility across platforms is a nice convenience. The one thing I don't like is that the note button in the notification center defaults to a new note instead of taking me to my list.

Great!

I haven't used OneNote to its full extent yet, but I'm a college student. Having a place to put my notes while working on my online classes instead of writing everything down, and color coding my written notes is wonderful. I could put all of my class notes here, and share it with someone in case they needed them. It also makes it really easy to copy and paste the in-note diagrams my teachers use. I haven't had any problems so far.
