Awesome! Except no iPhone version

This update fixed the outline syncing problem! I have it on Mac and iPad and when I type something on one, press the sync button and press the sync button on the other device it’s there. Perfect!! I’m a student and use it for taking notes it’s THE best notebook out there. Looks beautiful and is very practical as well. Keep the updates coming whenever problem pop up and I will be a happy customer and keep suggesting it to other students i meet :) The only negative thing I have to say is that there’s no iPhone version, even though they’ve been saying on forums for years that they’re working on one. Come out with a solid iPhone app and this gets an EASY 5 stars!

Wondeful lote taking app

This is a wonderful note takeing application I use on my machine at school. It’s fast, slick and it integrates excellent with the Mac interface. It’s well designed, and from waking up my Macbook to taking notes it’s just a matter of seconds.

Great app

I really amazed for its awesome interface when I open this app. If you need to use OneNote everyday,this app may be a good companion
