The best notes app, period.

Ok, I’ll start by saying that I’ve been using OneNote for over 3 years now and I love it to death. It has only gotten better since I’ve started using it and I still recommend it to everyone at every chance I get.
I use OneNote primarily for school (I am a University of California student) and it is absolutely killer for keeping together notes for all of my classes, syncing notes with study groups, and just generally keeping tabs on all the different projects I have going on (no pun intended).
The best part of OneNote is definitely its layout, it manages to keep even me organized and that is truly something as I am the most scatterbrained human being that has ever existed. It’s simple, pleasing to the eye, and very easily customizable for whatever you need this software to do.
I still cannot believe that this thing is free. It blows most other paid notes applications out of the water and it’s getting better all the time.
Would 10/10 recommend this to any fellow starving college student!


This is the one true multiplatform note/collaboration tool. But it´s also so much more. You need to embrace it to see its worth and indispensability. I myself hav switched from evernote, which is very good, to OneNote as it´s just perfect for my use. What are the strong points? How about the abillity to make a list on the first page of a note, and then by selecting the list and clicking once, you have created a new page for all the list items and linked them from the first page, html style? Inserting forms and video directly into pages and viewing them and interacting with forms is another. Then theres linking to Outlook items, creating minutes, class books and work books that gives the teacher/leader separate pages for each student/employee where they can interact. And so much more, just figure your need and OneNote will supply a means.
I for one Love it, been using OneNote since early start in 2004 then switching to evernote for 5 years before making the leap back in 2014 as class notebook came along.

From Evernote to Onenote - Cant live with out it!

In my day to day i capture alot of photos videos and handwritten notes from my iphone, ipad, Surface pro and MacBook. (Yes I have a lot of devices) As an avid Evernote user, the app hasnt kept up with the capabilities especially with handwritten notes. OneNote’s inking capabilites is the best I’ve used and Ive tried them all. I can add photos snapped from my iphone and videos, annotate on the images, add handwritten notes, share my notes, in a seamless workflow that syncs across all devices. The intergration between Microsoft and Apple is seamless and perfect for getting things done. My only hestation was how to convert the massive amount of notes I have in Evernote, well OneNote has an Importer tool, so moving all of my notes to OneOne was easy. Give this app a try and I think you will be suprised by the capabilities.
