What's New in Version 2.9
• Handwriting - Sometimes, there’s just no substitute for putting pen to paper and sketching out your next great idea. That’s why we’re introducing handwriting to OneNote. Highlight documents, scribble notes, or just doodle until your heart’s content.
• OCR for Images - Search for text contained within images in your OneNote notebooks. OCR is now supported on new images added to OneDrive notebooks. You can even copy the image text and add it to your notes. Existing images will also become searchable soon!
• Bug fixes
Handwriting nice. Erasing very buggy.
I was very excited when they added the handwriting function in. I used to use an Asus tablet in the workplace to take meeting notes, keep To-Do lists, etc. I eventually ditched it in favor of a Bamboo stylus and their Paper app. It's ok but lacks most of the functionality I loved in OneNote. Now with handwriting, I can use OneNote again. The palm rejection works fairly well so I can write away with my Cosmonaut stylus without stray marks (mostly). The one big problem seems to be erasing. When I select the eraser it sometimes scrolls the page up to a random location. Not all the way to the top necessarily, just somewhere random. Then as I start to erase it will do it again, so now I end up erasing some random text. No big deal. That's what "Undo" is for but it happens alot and really starts to bog down my workflow. If they can fix this, it would be a 5 star app.
Best note app
I started using one note a few months ago despite the lack of handwriting ability on the iPad and iPhone apps. Once I gave it a real shot, I dropped all other notes apps. It syncs notes across devices, gives you so many ways to organize your notes, makes all your notes searchable, let's you check you access your notes online from other devices, and makes it easy to assign yourself tasks and to do items in MS outlook. I occasionally missed the handwriting ability, especially when in a meeting where people might think I was checking email rather than taking notes. The handwriting addition is just icing on the cake to a great app. What a home run for Microsoft...can't believe I said that.
Aside from its obvious capabilities, OneNote provides an automatic way to share files between PCs and iPads. Because of the differences in architecture, this sharing used to involve separate steps of manually uploading to a cloud drive and then accessing and importing into an appropriate app on the tablet. Now I can just drag the file from File explorer to where I want it in OneNote on the PC and later, when I'm in a meeting, there it is in OneNote where I do view it or easily open in an Office App if desired. I've found myself using this for all sorts of personal and business things because the data is always available without a lot of work to make it happen.
