Microsoft OneNote Reviews


Bug  oldsneakers  5 star

Please fix the “Working Offline” bug you introduced in the last update. It’s a fantastic program I would even pay for. Evernote isn’t even close.


sort of a joke  Rjturbo  3 star

Word for tablet is clunky. There is no comparison to Apple’s sleekness and, probably, security. I am using Word only because every one else does too. If only Apple made a program that generated a doc or docx


Mac and iOS Compatibility Issues Poor Customer Service  sparklehoof  1 star

I love the concept, but unreliable syncing. Customer service couldn’t resolve the issues.


Need cursor to show in iPhone app  roverman  4 star

Great app. When making a list or bullet point list in the iPhone app, there is no visible cursor. This makes it hard to easily see where you start to type. Also would like to see the ability to do handwriting with a stylus. This feature is available in many popular note taking apps.


El mejor  Aldemo  5 star

El mejor desde que lo estoy usando , estoy más organizado y tengo la información al instante, yo tenia evernote, este es mejor 1000 veces

Stella Gray

Great App & Request  Stella Gray  5 star

This is a great app, which I use for school, home, and work. I would like to be able to highlight from my phone as a way. This is a great way to differentiate stages of completion of works in progress. Thank you!


Ok notes app. Let’s make it better  herroimseto  4 star

I have been off and on with onenote and notability. Onenote has so much more potential as it works on the PC for typing better than notability. But there’s a few kinks in onenote that just make notability a more pleasant experience. Annotating PDFs in onenote is terrible. If I want to move the PDF the annotations do not move with it in the same page. What’s also very annoying is the lag of the eraser. Idk why but It takes a half a second or two to erase strokes and it gets frustrating when you have to erase frequently and lose a lot of time because of lag overtime.


Was favorite not anymore  Azstreetpreacher  1 star

This app crashes as soon as I try to scroll through notes very annoying and constant sync issues with MacBook to iPad Pro. Don’t even get me started on pdf files that never sync, this use to be my go to note taking app but I will explore other options.


Frequest Crashes  Paramuu  3 star

Ahh this is so frustrating. It is such a great app, but once the suze of note increases ( i have 1000gb space in one drive and about 5 gb of notes, just under 5gb), the app just crashes within e0 sec of openig it. My goodness.., Please for the love of god fix this. Ince it is fixed, it is undoubtedly the best app for note taking.


Never Worked  Jazzoncè  1 star

I downloaded the app because I enjoy using OneNote on my MacBook for my business and personal life. I signed in using the same account and synced my notebooks before downloading the app. After I downloaded the app (which took forever even on WiFi) I tried logging in. I got logged in but none of my notebooks would sync. It even kept telling me to sign in after doing it multiple times. Very disappointed.


A clunky, buggy mess  Anonymous799  1 star

I rely on OneNote for so much of my life and the Windows 10 desktop program is snappy, reliable, and all around fantastic. All I want from a mobile version is to be able to quickly jot things down or update existing notes. A few months ago, this app was so broken that you couldn’t even hit return twice without the text field breaking. That’s been fixed, but there are still are sorts of odd sync issues and crashing when opening/closing notebooks (granted, not something you do every day). It still feels incredibly clunky and unreliable for quickly and reliably taking notes. I love OneNote. This app makes me seriously consider taking a look at other note-taking platforms.

жаль есть реклама

Good, but not enough functions  жаль есть реклама  3 star

Useful to create notes. However, inconvenient to work with tables, pictures and other stuff


Love it  tzfnogsxvk  5 star

One note is word and folder combined. The only problem is it doesn’t transfers onto other apps well and it can’t print the way it looks. Keep up the good work.


One note  pandazzzzzzzz123  3 star

Hi, this review kinda has todo with all the Microsoft apps; First of all the having to sign in to edit the slide,word doc, ect is pretty stupid I mean come on the person has already downloaded your app isn’t that good enough?! Secondly I don’t think it’s far to make people pay money to upgrade the Microsoft app they may be using, like what if the need a feature for work or a kid is using it for school!. Overall the apps aren’t that bad therefore I gave it 3 stars, you may not be able to fix any of the issues but please at least try. Thank you very much.


Free, efficient, and easy to use  qg.zhang  5 star

I using the app to trace meeting records, or just for scratching. It lacks of graphical features, but everything else, such like synchronisation, intuitive UI, exceed my expectation for a free notebook App.


Some small issues  Qwerty-guy  4 star

The pen makes smudges close to the edges of the page. Could be improved and Mae just a tad smoother for taking notes for uni.


Bad  mjsjsnskwl  1 star

This is not the best. INPROVE!!!!

Sticking with it

Works with multiple devices  Sticking with it  5 star

Note is so good when on the move. Information stored in one device is readily available in another.. quick notes are also recorded and transferred to other platforms


Lots of functions I love it  mnbbbb/()'""""0.!!"kmmmjjnj  5 star



My No 1 App  Dobesrcool  5 star

Using this to organize everything from personal to business. Started my paperless journey about a year ago and have found this app to be the best option. Easy to organize, great with the iPencil for handwritten notes. Make a note visually appealing by adding images and so much more. Love the layout, it feels clean and I can find things quickly. Keeping my business expense receipts, no problem, I have a business notebook with multiple sections and one of them for scanned receipts. Trying to remember what service we did to our car, hey no problem I made notes and have the receipt scanned in. The options are endless! Thank you for providing this app for free!


Ruler  Rezvan1310  5 star

The app doesn’t have a ruler. Also it doesn’t have self handwriting correction

One note  mick 1202018  5 star

Very convenient, love one note!


Can’t edit photo later  cactushackedus  3 star

After a photo is added, it can’t be cropped or modified at all after the fact in this mobile app. Please add this feature!


Syncing across devices  johnhudak  4 star

Syncing across devices is brilliant. Works standalone and syncs when attached to WiFi. It made me switch from Evernote. Need to be able to search, sort and categorize, separate into subject notebooks - maybe it does but I don’t know how.


One star  microSAD  1 star

There is an annoying pop up that asks me to rate this app.

Puzzler a to z

Not working  Puzzler a to z  1 star

Can’t add a notebook. Downloaded fine to my iPhone 8 and yet completely useless. One note works on my desktop


Greatest app ever. It’s word on steroids  soul4901  5 star

Love it. Takes a coupe of hours to learn your way through it. Watch some YouTube And then wow.

Eighty XYZ

My palm memory  Eighty XYZ  5 star

OneNote saves all my useful household, family and professional anecdotes. Dating back to 2005, it has been a staple on all my devices. Easy to catalog and recall. Yes, my palm memory.

Booksaremylife 7

Won’t sync  Booksaremylife 7  1 star

I keep getting a message saying working offline cannot sync. It happens all the time. It started with the last update.


Best notetaking app  Michalisn  5 star

I tried a few note taking apps. OneNote has some features that really make it stand out for me. I’ll mention two that I didn’t see in some of the other popular apps: no page breaks, the paper is infinite. The insert space tool: It allows one to just insert empty space in the notes, a very simple tool. I find it indispensable when preparing a talk, as I often decide to add additional information somewhere in the middle. Syncing: the app only syncs with Microsoft Onedrive. Crashing: for the last few months the app sometimes crashed when syncing. A reinstall solved the problem for me.


One note  hui8j  5 star

One note helps me to do a lot of stuff easier than others so I give one note a five star rating


Great App  sdmurph  5 star

Fantastic, seamless between my phone, iPad and laptop

Neal McQ

Five stars if didn’t use own editing interface  Neal McQ  2 star

Why break the best parts about iOS and use their own editing functions and features. A mess.

Nik Scorch

An incredibly useful notes app  Nik Scorch  5 star

I use OneNote for my school notes and studying. Being able to organize my notes easily with notebooks and then narrowing down with sections is something which i could not live without. I would not be able to live without OneNote’s synchronization with OneDrive. Being able to start something on my iPad and finish it and revise it on my phone is fantastic. Tables are something I use all the time when I’m writing down notes for my language classes but i would love to see the ability to sort tables alphabetical or numerically like you can on the version for Windows 10. This is an incredibly useful feature that would make like so much easier if it was introduced to the mobile versions of the app.

Joy R. C.

iOS crashing  Joy R. C.  4 star

I love OneNote but the iOS app is constantly crashing, sometimes every 5 to 10 minutes. Please fix! It prevents auto save and I’ve lost so much progress on college work due to this issue, as have many of my college friends who use the app on an Apple product.


This is ok  sueodooo  4 star

A little confusing to find stuff
