Microsoft OneNote is a digital note taking app that can be accessed via Android, Chrome, Windows, iOS and Mac devices. The solution is well-suited for individuals attending numerous meetings per week and working on multiple collaborative projects.

OneNote offers deep search functionality for all notes stored in its database. Users can also store and organize audio recordings that are in a searchable format and can be integrated with other Microsoft Office products.

OneNote allows users to take handwritten notes with the help of a stylus or fingertip and can also convert these notes to digital text. Important ideas or points can be highlighted by using various shapes and colors.

The solution has the ability to embed other Microsoft Office files into a note. They can then be easily edited by OneNote users. OneNote offers cloud-based storage and allows users to easily toggle between separate but synced up enterprise and personal accounts.

Maybe a little too powerful

Pros

It is very flexible and powerful. No other note-taking tool does as much, particularly if you are using the Surface Pro with the stylus.

Cons

It is too much for simple note taking. I find myself gravitating back towards the simple Notes app in my iPhone for that.
