The jewel of the Microsoft Office suite incarnate in iOS
[I apologize for the unstructured review below. However, I could not spend the time necessary to revise it so that it would read well.]
One of the hidden gems in Microsoft's Office suite over the years has always been Microsoft OneNote. In this instance, we are blessed to be able to have OneNote in iOS form on our iPads.
OneNote is just as the name implies – A place to keep all of your notes. However, OneNote will hold documents in both their file form and in printed form, it's your choice!
Why would you use OneNote and not Evernote? Personally, I have found that the structured format of OneNote manages my information better. It is a digital notebook, which allows lightning fast search for any word across all of your notebooks. Unlike Evernote, OneNote can search without the need for predefined tags. Whatever the term you're searching for, whether it be part of a PDF, or just a note, you will find it quickly and easily whenever you need to, without having predefined any tags or structure.
Each notebook can contain sections, with each section holding notes in the virtual pages that never run out of room. You can also have section groups, which I think of as the equivalent of a binder.
While OneNote is structured as far as note hierarchy, you are free to move pieces of text around on a page as you see fit, much like a mind map.
I Love Love Love the new Office apps, and One Note is a great addition. I tried all kinds of notes apps, but none did everything I wanted and allowed me to access from every type of device, for both my husband and I to be able to access. One Note is easy, and allows me to setup separate notebooks and tabs in each one. I can cut and paste pics, and they even added an OCR scan now so I can search text in pictures. And they also added a handwriting feature, so that allowed me to get rid of another app I was using before. I love how everything stores in One Drive. I just can't say one bad thing about this.
Best in class with room for improvements
This is my definitive note taking app, especially when the handwriting update was released. However there's still feature missing that I'd like to see implemented, most importantly printing options. The biggest downside is having to get on my computer just to print. The ability to record audio is another feature. I'd also like to see the ability to add ruled lines and grid to the paper style. Lastly and least importantly, I'd like to see a feature that converts handwriting to text. But so far I'm loving the design, organization, and features so keep up the good work.
