Amazing Cloud-Based File Management System

J'siPhone

I’ve used OneNote for over 5 years now and the level of organization I am able to achieve by using this software is amazing yet efficient. I am an elementary school teacher, so each school year I inherit a new group of 25-30+ students whose progress I must I track and monitor over the course of a school year. With OneNote I am able to store digital portfolios for each of my students. Also Ive been able to create libraries, across subject and content areas, of instructional resources and materials that I’m able to manage and continually add to. Further I am able to document and store artifacts related to my Professional Responsibilities, something essential as this is an area where teacher’s ratings can plunge if one hasn’t taken the time to document the work you do.
I’ve attempted to convince colleagues to use OneNote to collaborate over other cloud based sharing programs, but thus far my technology reluctant colleagues have enabled me to maintain an upper hand in records keeping and always having on hand an instructional tool to help a student. All in all I absolutely love OneNote and appreciate the work done by Microsoft to keep this program fresh and amazingly consistent with use across multiple operating systems and devices.

Slow and clunky, with bugs

claustraphobix

Slow, clunky, and after a while you really start to get annoyed with this app. I used OneNote for the longest time on my computer, so I was excited when they made an app. I use OneNote for quick and simple note-taking, usually just for jotting down ideas. But for that, this app fails. It always takes several seconds to open, in which it shows you the purple landing page. Often I wonder if it's going to open at all. Switching pages takes time as well, and there's these weird bugs where the page won't load correctly and will just look weird. There's also a personal annoyance for me that you can't switch off Auto-Capitalisation. It's already off in my iOS settings, but OneNote overrides it, and that's annoying. Finally, every time you exit the app, let's say to go to another app that you were using, OneNote will close the keyboard automatically. I often switch back and forth between two apps and that is really annoying to me. I know all of the above sounds like petty things, but after using this app for a long time, I have decided to move away from it to something like the in-built iOS Notes app simply because it's faster and it doesn't have any of the annoyances of the above.

Excellent program and app, but...

LJ_Blitz

I have used OneNote for a very long time on my PC, and I’m thrilled that there’s an app! However, the last update has spoiled my workflow. Every time I want to add a new section or note I have to dismiss the ribbon at the bottom of the iPad. I use a Logitech keyboard case with my iPad because I find typing onscreen cumbersome and slow. There’s a ribbon that shows onscreen at the very bottom of the window. This ribbon contains predictive text suggestions, style options, etc. I have tried closing the predictive text in settings, but it does not remove the ribbon within the OneNote app.

Before this update the new page/section button was at the top of the window. It now resides on the bottom - causing two problems. The first is that it is covered up by the ribbon I mentioned above. The second problem is that new iOS feature that you can access other apps by tapping the bottom of the window. THAT thing pops up if I am off a fraction of a hair from the button, also frustrating my workflow.

Please find a way to put the buttons at the top of the app again to resolve this problem. Otherwise, GREAT app!
