Fantastaic & Versatile Organizational App

This is an absolutely “use all the time/can’t ilve without” app on my phone, laptop and MacBook - it syncs across all my devices! I maintain all my monthly bills, check & add confirmation numbers when paid—I have one place to double check myself and be sure I haven’t missed any important payments. I use this App for way more than record keeping - it is my ‘go to’ app for quick notes, comparisons, planning, etc. I have numerous folders and sub categories that are so easy to maintain and search. I really LOVE ONENOTE. Even when I bought a MacBook - my very first add on program was OneNote by MicroSoft. I really am constantly impressed with the updates and continued improvement by the developers .It even will clip items, articles, pictures and even full pages from my web browser and automatiacallly insert into OneNote for me. I could not maintain and organize as well & as easy as I do without OneNote. And, worth repeating, it allows me to make a note or revision on any device near me at the time it pops in my head and immediately syncs across all my devices!!! I highly recommend you try this app!!!

Just gets better and better...

I was a long-time user of Evernote, and it was getting more bloated and then more expensive. So I transferred everything over to OneNote and haven’t looked back. Syncing is fast, the app now has a consistent user interface across different devices - from smartphone to tablet to desktop. It is simply fantastic to make short, quick notes or more complex ones. I have visited archives and made notes and scanned drawings; kept receipts for travel; sketched things out with a pen; and made notes for books and articles. Versatile and rock solid.

It wasn’t so long ago that OneNote for the Mac was a poor cousin to the PC version. But kudos to Microsoft for making stepping up development work on this Mac version.

Great app, keeps getting better. Just one complaint.

I use this for massive amounts of notes, and I love it. My only qualm is that when you try to export a note or print it as a PDF, the formatting gets thrown way out of proportion — especially if you have images. There are no options to change the layout or fix it up. Text gets split in half between pages, and images wrap into an entire second page of their own. Even if you make everything really small in the OneNote notebook, it still does this. Please fix as soon as possible!
