Microsoft OneNote

Microsoft OneNote was a little klugie for me at first. Could just be the learning curve. I think it may work slightly differently on a Mac or an iPad than on a Windows device. Once I really started to use it for note taking during a technical training class, I was really able to reap the benefits.

As my eyes are getting older and causing my handwriting/printing to be less legible, one of the biggest and immediate benefits is, that even if I have typos using OneNote, for the most part my notes are much more readable than my handwritten ones. I can always “edit” my OneNote notes without it looking like ants had a party on my scratch pad. Another benefit is that I can always “find” my notes in the cloud (online) with my Microsoft ID. I still take handwritten notes sometimes and I usually misplace them.

There are times when it is either not convenient or not as effective to take notes using OneNote. I know many people use their Smartphones for more and more everyday. I just don’t have the keen eyesight I need to use this "small screen" platform effectively. But on my iPad or MacBook Pro and for those times when it makes the most sense, OneNote has become a most valuable tool in my toolbox.

OneNote is awesome

At first I was somewhat skeptical when I saw someone at work use it. She told me that she used it throught college and loved it.

Since I used to keep note files (a few dozen of them) in one directory I decided to give OneNote a try. I felt that there had to be something better to keep track of notes I took from meetings or things I’m learning and don’t need often, at the same time keep them nicely organized, even my daily activites and/or weekly reports. Anyway, since I started using OneNote I have not looked back. Notes that I take in the office are easily accessible to me anywhere on any device.

I have been converted and I highly recommend OneNote to anyone who takes notes and needs to go back and refer to them often or once in a while. Keeping multiple note files in the computer is no longer, IMO, a choice because you will spend a lot of time organizing them and/or searching for specific notes. OneNote allows you to organize them from the beginning and keeps everything in one place easily searchable.


I’ve used this app for years now at this point and I love how OneNote is so seamless. It’s an instantaneous app. Last night I was working on my sermon for this morning and it was easy to have my document opened up on my phone where it was easier to copy bible verses, and then on my Macbook and watch it load up as soon as I hit that sync button so that way I could edit it easier. I love the cloud connection and the organization and optimization.

They’re also responsive. When I first started using it on my Macbook between my Windows at work, I would always have to sign in again to get it to sync here on the Mac. I submitted feedback and in less than a week, they had an update out and I didn’t have a problem with it anymore.

Microsoft and Mac should stop competing and work together, much like how Marvel and DC comics had the Amaglam universe, and just have some pretty smush that satisfies both parties.
