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.

    Pros

    I have used quite a number of note apps over the years but OneNote still remains one of my favourites.
    The things I love about it are many
    1. Drawing my ideas as it comes to my head is a gem
    2. Teamwork is also made easy so most of my remote staff have real-time access to the the things I love to work on with them.
    3. I scribble and just concert to text later. Simply amazing!

    IT DOES WHAT IT SAYS

    Cons

    I only use it to capture notes, pictures and ideas and it serves me well for that.
    I have no complaints about it

    Pros

    OneNote free version has numerous positive functionalities such as : tools for better organization, notes design is flexible and it's integrating well with the Office suite.

    Cons

    Is best suited for desktops and tablets, but not for mobile devices. The mobile version of OneNote could have been better developed. Also the taking time to get started and synchronize all notes it's taking a bit of time.

    I would definitely recommend One Note based on its own merits but while recommending it I would also be mentioning a few of its competitors that do as good a job, are less forgettable and are not as tied to a subscription fee. I am also going to try and take advantage of it more myself, because it does do a great job.

    Pros

    One Note is extremely convenient to use. It gives great ways to organize and a pile of ways to input and collect your thoughts, being able to type, draw and keep audio notes all in one place.

    Cons

    I have two cons for One Note - for one, it is tied to Office 365 so you need to be subscribed to make it work for you and for two, and maybe it is my fault, but I keep forgetting it exists. I default to every other note keeping app and completely forget about One Note even though it works about as well as its competitors. This make me feel like I am not getting the most out of my subscription.

    Pros

    I use OneNote for my notes and listings. It’s like my diary or notebook where I store all important information I have gathered from websites or trainings. I like OneNote because I can assure that all my files are secured and stored in a cloud platform. I like the OneNote badge feature when using my android mobile phone because it is easy to take notes when i jump from one website to another when researching. You can also add files and images to be stored. I think the recording is very cool. Some prefer recording their voice for storing information rather than typing.

    Cons

    OneNote Badge is only available on mobile application. This is not available on PC application and feature was made for Android users.

    I love the simplicity of OneNote. One of my favourite features is that I can type a note anywhere on the screen. I also like how the notebooks can be divided by subject and by lecture. My notes are organized and easily accessible.

    Cons

    Wish I could have more than one notebook. I have the general one, but would like to have more. Other than that, I enjoy the product.

    This app/software just simply beyond my expectation. When I first used this app, I thought that it is just a handy planner that can be access through my smartphone but I was wrong. It serves now as my secretary since it reminds me what to do and where to go. Thanks onenote on the job well done.

    Cons

    At first I was having trouble on figuring out how to use and maximize the features of this app but as time goes by this app just simply teaches me the things I need to know about it.
