Best for hierarchical note organization
I used to use OneNote for undergrad a few years ago. I’ve just recently picked it up again to study for an intense state exam. OneNote is great for its simplicity and organazation. You have notebooks > tabs > notes. I can’t comment on using images because I don’t use many features outside of plain text notetaking. The user interface is nice and I can say the same thing about the mobile app. It takes a bit of careful micromanaging while syncing to ensure that both the Mac and Mobile app are current.
One downside is its autocorrect in languages other than English. Maybe this is user error but whenever I change the default language to anything other than English, it always tends to want to switch back (even if the entire text box is highlighted). I began using OneNote and Evernote at the same time with the intention to eventually choose one. That’s not going to happen because they both serve very different purposes for me. Both are indispensable for their respective strengths.
Perfect replacement for the traditional notebook
I’ve been using OneNote for quite some time, and found the sharing capabilities to be a huge benefit for a team that is across multiple sites. Our daily tasks were conveniently updated througout the day and allowed us to stay focused on tasks without having to ask if other items were getting done.
Now at my new job, I have found new uses for the product that allow me to ditch my old notebook. I travel for work to customer sites and the ability to take down notes and organize my files by customer has facilitated my job immensly. Once back at the hote, the notes are ready for me to put into word, excel or powerpoint with simple cut and paste.
Definitely recommended for collaborative work and for keeping your notes orderly.
Good functionality, lagging behind Windows version
It’s a great app to use on a Mac, probably the best to keep notes, but having transitioned from a Windows version, I find this lacking in certain options, like the ability to work with equations, sorting data in tables etc. It’s not a deal breaker, but IT IS productivty software so a lot of times, it’s the little things like this that matter. Think: rearranging every row in a table manually versus pressing one button. I know this is a Mac version and it’s free, but these features are available on the also free Windows version, so were they intentially excluded here? If yes, understandable… However, there should be a disclosure that this is a ‘watered down’ version of the software. There is no explicit mention of this. If you are inteding to use this for an advanced math/science class, the equations are kind of a basic necessity.
