ARABIC & HEBREW UI: OneNote now supports UI mirroring for iOS9 so it's not just the text that's in the right direction.

PAGE PREVIEWS GO ON A DIET: A number of users wanted to disable page previews. We listened. Same great notes, 50% less vertical space.
Syncable & Usefulness
I would have to say that I actually really enjoy using OneNote because of it's ability to sync across all of my devices and the fact that some of the programs are free.
The applications for the iPad and other mobile devices are free and you just have to pay for the desktop/laptop versions of Microsoft Office; however, there is a way around that because they do offer Office Online. It's kind of like Microsoft's version of Google's Drive because they have the OneDrive that their version of the Cloud to hold all of your files, photos, and other data. The OneDrive is just a little easier to work with because there are other applications like "Smart Office" that are allowed to open the .docx and other Microsoft files, whereas with Google, you need to download the specific Google Sheets or some other application if you want to be able to edit that specific Google file.
The only draw back is that I am currently using OneNote to take notes for college, but so far from what I have been able to tell, is that there is no microphone/recording option because that was the feature that I enjoyed with the Notability app, but the syncing with Microsoft is a little faster than that of Notability. Plus Notability uses your iCloud memory space, whereas this uses your OneDrive space.
Searchable complex notes synced everywhere
I have this running on my iPad, my PC, and my Mac mini. I can make a change on any device, and it syncs immediately to the other devices. As a notetaker, it works much better than any other I have found. It conceptually lists out folders left to right. And then it has notes from top to bottom on the left. It is a basic tree. The columns are color-coded which really helps. And you don't have to think about it. It picks a new color when you create a new folder. Also the kind of notes you can make are varied and excellent. For example, on the PC there is a note clipping tool available. This clipper will grab whatever portion of the screen you want and it will be replicated inside the note. So you can take only the portion of the website you really are interested in, and copy it to your note. You can then do a copy and paste on the URL to click later too to see the whole thing if that's necessary. There's a lot more to say, but give it a try.
You listened. Thank you.
Now I can give you 4 stars - up from the 1 I previously gave. You gave me the choice to have my page list back on the right side of the screen to match my desktop app, and to move it to the left if I want to use the handwriting feature. That should have been a choice from the start, instead of arbitrarily placing it permanently on the left as the previous update did. That's why I rated 4 stars instead of 5. Your programmers make changes first, then consider the alternatives second. It should be the other way around, but at least you are responding to users.
The other ting I applaud you for is fixing the silly font squishing letters problem that plagued the last update. Though nothing in your notes addressed it, you did fix it.
OneNote is a great product - bottom line. I can't imagine going one day without it - whether on my phone, tablet or laptop. Microsoft, you rock.
