Keeps getting better and better, wish I had this in undergrad!

Love the easy to use interface, seamless syncing across all of my devices, and customizability of this program. It’s great to be able to take notes on the go on my phone and they just show up on my computer and ipad. I used to have folders and folders of word docs for school, now I have one Notebook organized by semester and classes and I can’t tell you how convenient it is to have all of my notes in one place. My favorite feature is being able to edit text ANYWHERE on a page. This allows me to take notes like my brain thinks, which is much better for studying than following a conventional word doc. Yes you can still do this in word, but OneNote makes it less time consuming and for me even fun. I’m very happy with this app, I highly recommend it to anyone on the fence or curious about it. I wish I had found out about it sooner! Well done.

Multiple Windows - Finally!

I use onenote daily as a way to help me organize both personal notes and class notes. The redesign works for me. It is extremely helpful to be able to hide all navigation panels, which wasn’t possible in the previous version. I also use Onenote on my iPad Pro with the apple pencil for handwritten notes. Performance could be better here but the ability to easily sync my notes back to my mac is invaluable.

The latest update allowing for multiple windows is the most important update since I started using OneNote for mac. It literally allows me to use onenote in ways I wasn’t able to previously. Thank you microsoft for FINALLY making this happen.

Great for Research

I love OneNote. I find it to be an excellent resource for the research I do. It gives me the ability to store, categorize, and access my research across a wide variety of computers, tablets and smartphones almost anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection. This is important to me since I travel back and forth to Africa. I recommend OneNote to anyone who needs an up-to-date research storage tool that allows you easy access at almost any time and any place. Also, it is simple to use and does not require one to spend countless days reading instructions on how to use it. Simple, powerful, extremely useful. As an instructor and researcher, I give OneNote an A+.
