What's New in Version 2.1.5
LECTURE HALL ESSENTIAL!
I have purchased a ton of note taking applications such as NotesPlus, Evernote, PDF Reader, etc. and One note by far is my favorite mainly because it has a feel of being on Microsoft word its self!
The best feature that led me to give this five stars is the fact that you can save multiple notebooks for different classes. We no longer have to lug around various notebooks for different classes, we can save them all in one place (our tablet) and access it from any other device incase leave our tablet at home. I highly recommend this for students in college.
I am sure Microsoft will come out with awesome upgrades for this app.

Slow with No Drawing Capability
I am a former OneNote user who switched to Evernote years ago. My switch originally was for Evernote's cross platform support and cloud sync capabilities. Still I always have missed several great OneNote features.
- Floating, place anywhere note text boxes
- Drawing capabilities
- Notebook, Tabs, Notes organization
I without the drawing capabilities there is just no reason for me to switch back to OneNote.
I also noticed this app seems to be a bit slow on my iPad mini and battery life also suffered. OneNote appears to be somewhat bloated for this device.
With some efficiency enhancements and the missing draw features I would have been switching back for sure. For now I'll be staying with Evernote.
I wish this app functioned more like the full-size OneNote application on the computer. I feel like the app is severely lacking without the capability to draw, it helps so much when taking notes if you can draw or write quick things rather than type out everything. Being able to change default settings in text boxes would be great also, so that every time I make a new text box the font and size are already formatted. The ability to highlight would be great too, not just highlight text words, but be able to highlight PDFs, PPs, etc.
And the biggest feature I wish it had: the ability to open PDFs, Word Documents, PowerPoint slides, etc. in any other app and PRINT TO ONENOTE, so that I don't have to rely on my computer to add notes when I need to!
