Is Microsoft finally getting it?
Years ago, I used OneNote on my office PC and it proved to be the most functional piece of software used to track all my projects and customers. My move to Mac and the iPad was for my love of Apple and disdain for Windows - but I always missed OneNote.
Over the past year, I tried Evernote, and while this is a viable product for a digital file-cabinet, Evernote is not nearly as functional to keep running notes and ideas for projects.
With the release of OneNote for Mac and iPad, one of the most functional pieces of software ever developed at Microsoft is available in most of our ecosystem - on our work PC, on our iPad, as well as personal Mac computer.
Functionality is limited on the iPad version ( cannot modify tags, cannot search on tags, integrating To-Do tags with Reminders) but I from what I have read online, Microsoft is committed to bringing additional functionality to the iPad and Mac versions of OneNote.
If you are looking for a single application to track your notes, capture documents, and manage multiple projects - this is about the best you can get.
Kudos to Microsoft for finally understanding the world we live in. I can easily see a stronger integration between Apple and Microsoft as a good thing if this is a sign of what is to come.
Love the app design improvements but lacks several key elements that I require as a college student who is always on the to. Please add the insert tab a way to insert a copy of a file where it inserts that pages but does not link the file. Also add a way to do handwriting as well which is useful for math classes. Please add this function as well. Also add notebook paper as a option as well so I can have better handwriting options and add some insert able objects such as a graph or number line so that those doing math in the notebook can easy insert them and show there work right on them. Also add the option to delete pages of notes make a page as a subpages as well as change the date and time on the notes as well.
Too Little, Too late
If OneNote had been available with the launch, or soon after, OneNote would be one of those apps you install almost immediately. Not so anymore.
Although it looks nice, fairly intuitive, and stable, Microsoft lost their chance with OneNote (and with the Office suite of apps) by not having this out and available earlier.
For me Evernote, and the iWork suite works just fine, and in some cases better than what Microsoft has released over the last couple of weeks.
Why would I spend time moving all my notes from Evernote to OneNote? I wouldn’t.
Sorry Micro$oft, but this is too little (in functionality also) and too late (about 3 years too late).
