One note app to write, organize & print. OneNote compatible & Office 365 powered.

Capture notes at any spot on a page and draggable around the place, organize in the world's most natural hierarchy, print to PDF, publish to web, and sync across devices with your favorite cloud.

- Choose where you want to store your notes: WebDAV, Dropbox, iCloud, Box, OneDrive, or SharePoint Server
- Consider a no-cloud option too: some notes need offline and cloud-free privacy

- Find everything a note needs by the hand: text, lists, tables, handwriting, and drawing
- Put that stuff anywhere in a note and then move around / re-size / edit it all, the way you like
- Personalize notebooks with artful covers
- Keep notes structured in a natural hierarchy of pages, sections, and notebooks (and section groups, yes)
- Access a note fast via recents, search, and note links

- Import from OneNote, to give those notes a new start beyond OneDrive or SharePoint
- Export to OneNote, just in case
- Go beyond import/export and do a real time collaboration on notes with colleagues who use OneNote (your iPad and their PCs)

Whether it is your meeting minutes, research, document annotations, or ideas, give those a chance to go beyond the limits.

Your notes are essential and do matter more than formats, storage, platforms, or even the app for note-taking.

Love the app, but it has a few rough edges...


I’ve been using this app as my go to note taker day to day for about a year now. The experience is mostly great, but there are some really rough edges. Around syncing there are bugs, and bad weird things happen all the time - syncing is certainly not a “seamless experience”, which is a massive issue for me as I go back and forth between Mac and iOS all the time. The drawing support on iPads is great, as is the keyboard writing and markup in general. There still isn’t support for the new files / document picker that came with iOS recently, which is a pain. And there are a few editing shortcomings - try to get a context menu on an image ones its been pasted on an iPad, for instance.



Update: Rather dissapointed that you can't perform a simple task like renaming a notebook, so make sure how you name your book, because you will be stuck with it.

I am really pleased that I found this app. I had a OneNote book on my desktop computer that was created using an older version of OneNote. When Microsoft released OneNote for the iPad I was disappointed to find that I couldn't access books from previous versions.

The along came Outline, and guess what! I was able to import my old notebook via Dropbox. I was so pleased because I had been compiling that book over a period of about 18 months.

Thank you so much to the creators of Outline.
