What's New in Version 2.20.1
OneNote was occasionally flummoxed by iOS8 and closed itself in confusion. We have helped it understand.
Essential for work and home
I was introduced to OneNote about 2 years ago, when I inquired what software a coworker was using for meeting minutes. I've been hooked ever since. It's flexible and easy. We've created office notebooks that live inside our network firewall. I have personal notebooks that I've synced to my home Windows computer, iPad, iPhone, and can access at the One Note website. The software is easy and nimble. I can move pages and revise with ease. I save certain outlook emails and meeting invites to it, webpages, instructions, images, PDFs. I love that it automatically copies urls along with web content. For shared notebooks, It will track who made changes and when they were made, with color coding to illuminate these changes (which you can eliminate once you have reviewed the changes.). I love how I can email pages to anyone. And the ability to collapse and reopen page sections for indented content. It's easier to use than a wiki, and I plan to move our internal wiki to One Note because it has many more features. I regularly find new features and uses. So yeah, I'm a fan of the app.
Really Good, not quite perfect.
The Shining Highs of OneNote:
Sync is flawless
Text editing just works
Has just about everything you'd want
Works on every device, from iPhone to Mac to Surface
Never lost a word from a note
Fast, slick, and designed 👌.
Sharing notes is awesome. Like GDrive good.
The Glaring Misses:
Exporting as PDF is gosh darn awful: on iPad, it's one really long page, so printing doesn't work, and on Mac, the right side of pages get cut off! (You could fix this by using Notability's style of having a fixed border on the right side, making each digital sheet letter sized, and making iPad export better, like Notability has.)
Drawing isn't so smooth: it has plenty of features, like convert to shape, but it often draws a line when I try to zoom in. And it doesn't zoom in far enough!!
No lasso/scissor tool to select handwriting except on Mac. This should be on iPad too!!
Conclusion: with these necessary fixes, OneNote would become my all-time favorite note app. But right now, it's too hard to use in school, for annotating PDFs and resubmitting them to teachers' drop boxes! The export just plain doesn't work well enough for this!!
But it's good already, and yes, you should use it!
So close to perfect...
I'm a power user of the Windows versions of OneNote at work, so these gripes are coming from that--for many people, this app is already a top-notch note-taking, idea-capturing, sanity-preserving machine: download this app immediately and see how you can put it to use!
For me though, I'd like to see these addressed before I give the app 5 stars:
1. Can't customize your own tags. I'd dump Evernote in a heartbeat if I could tag items with my own tags instead of the default ones, most of which are completely useless to me.
2. Can't collapse outlines on mobile--on Windows, and (pretty sure, but not 100% positive) Mac, you can click to the left of an outline and collapse it. Would love this on Mobile.
3. Difficult to move text around anywhere on the page like you can on desktop or on the web. Wouldn't be that hard to allow this on touch--maybe just let the user long-tap on a text container to enable moving it anywhere on the screen.
Fix those few things and I think you'd be a tough app to beat. For now, I'll find some use for the app, but it's not perfect.
