It's almost unusable, otherwise it's great.

I'm SO TIRED of OneNote's login problems. It is obvious that no one on the development team actually uses OneNote for iPad, because if someone did, they would put up with this for this long. I have notebooks on 3 different accounts; I wonder if they test for that, because I fight their buggy logins everyday. Shame; this is a good app otherwise.
Great for lists, lacking for productivity.
Grault Codesmith on 4/21/2018
I wish OneNote had a way for me to schedule changes in a calendar, like adding or removing items. And a way to easily move several items from one list to another, for building a daily todo list from the ongoing one I already maintain. I haven’t found anything with the features I want yet, so I’m still using OneNote, but these are consistent pain points.

This a really good app it is better then notes and pages you can draw in the app it will correct your spelling if you write a word wrong I hope you enjoy this app best wishes for you rate as soon as you get it because I feel like others should have this thanks for reading this .
Jayfitterer on 4/21/2018
Notes is an awesome way to keep track of all your notes in one place. Having the app on several devices is very handy and allows you to search for notes content anywhere.

I am being asked to rate it before even I try it for the first time. Then I rate it 3 as neutral.

Locks up often.
minsubi on 4/21/2018
It’s a great app really! There’s jut a huge problem. Lag. I’m not sure why but one one note if you try to write past the allotted apace by scrolling to the side, then the app becomes extremely glitchy to tough by hand while using the Apple Pencil. You can’t do. Out efficiently, you can’t move, it’s a mess! Really tough when you’re in lecture and decides it just doesn’t want to move to the next slide or zoom out...
Tromlui on 4/20/2018
As a writer, I’m always on the go, so it just makes sense to have this with me all the time. It is so easy to use and it helps to have a format that’s very user friendly.
Great multi way to sync all your notes together!
elmisa on 4/20/2018
One note offers the best way to sync all your notes whether offline or online. All the features in one platform. Two thumbs up!!!
Can’t remember password
DenNukem on 4/20/2018
Logs me out once a day, have to retype the password. Works well otherwise.
Can’t access my other notes
somberlink on 4/20/2018
I need this app to sync better with my other devices I can’t access any of my data!!!!
It's good, could be better
AveryLaurelMMM on 4/20/2018
I like it mostly because of the fluidity of switching between laptop and iPad, told are a little limited...

So Many of Apps out there in cyber space. For us simple folk, this App a “Hammer to use for everything you do.” The ultimate “things to do” App for everyone, everything and everywhere.
Please fix this
Gee_Collins on 4/20/2018
I enjoy using OneNote on my iMac, however, for some reason I cannot create a notebook with this app. It's disappointing and frustrating. Please correct this issue.
Just what I needed
Jmanfl11 on 4/19/2018
Perfect app if you work off lists, need to stay organized, and take notes throughout the day.
omolekik on 4/19/2018
I have used many many notes. This one is a bombshell. It is totally amazing and beautiful. I love the fact that you can customize your notes and view all your annotations anywhere. It’s great for studying. The experience is different and immersive and it has increased my productivity. And everything is free! Thanks so much for this!
Great App!
Meanbass on 4/19/2018
Love it. Seamless connection.
Need search ability for checked items.
aznmikex215 on 4/19/2018
I need the ability to search for “ToDo” items that are unchecked. This capability is available in windows.
Best Notebook App!
BATGRL1970 on 4/19/2018
I keep trying other apps but I always come back to Microsoft OneNote. Every time I do I’m always amazed at how awesome it is. I can set up a Notebook and include the things I need it to. I can include links, pictures, whatever and can put it, pretty much, anywhere on the page I want to. I’m done looking for better Notebook apps. I don’t think it gets better than this one.
Crashes, freezes, doesn’t update
JamesAntonHake on 4/19/2018
Tried switching to this after experiencing similar issues with Notes lately.
Not Simple
Renee324 on 4/18/2018
I find it difficult to maneuver through the different folders/tabs
Soo so convenient
Matt,'A&F on 4/17/2018
I am a realtor I am in college & I am building a Ecommerce business. And this app allows me to have a place to store it all in a comfortable environment!
Word Count?
;L on 4/17/2018
Is there anyway to check the word count of what you have written? The app is really good besides that...
Needs massive improvement
Caitriona Page on 4/17/2018
I use note apps like this for one thing: taking notes. Seems obvious, doesn’t it? More so, taking hand written notes on my iPad. There are some great apps out there but what drew me to this was it’s integration with MS Office and collaboration features. My wife and I use shared journals to track personal projects and our business projects. For that it’s great. What’s not so great: the iPad app. Oi. Where to begin? No templates. No sub-sections. Limited table controls. Buggy on long notes. Limited paper style options (can’t import). Aaaaand the deal breaker: no iOS 11 drag and drop support... like, seriously? One of the key features that sold me that my iPad could replace my laptop for 95% of my daily tasks was the ability to drag and drop. I use it a lot on my laptop for my notes. My notes are key to many of the projects I work on and having to do the old school “save to Photos, crop in Photos, open app, go to import, find photo, import photo” routine is a huge, “why am i bothering” moment. Until then, this app is mostly useless. I’d recommend anything else unless you have to use it because your office/business uses it.

This design proves to be bountiful and allows the user to access trustworthy and dependable programming.
Don’t Run Update 04/16/18
1Note User on 4/16/2018
Now the app will not open. Just ran the update and app crashes open opening.
This app rocks.
xboxbeast on 4/16/2018
Literally took time out of my studying to say how awesome this app is. This app allows me to take notes on my iPad more efficiently than anything I’ve used. Every tool I need is there, and the best part for me is that I can indent, which is so useful since there isn’t a tab key on the iPad keyboard. I primarily used google docs for taking notes for my A&P classes on my laptop, but found it to be pretty bad on iPad. OneNote makes it easier and more efficient and is what I’ll be sticking to from now on.
Not bad at all
saccam447 on 4/16/2018
Please add digital pencil as one of the mediums to use when making notes instead of just digital ink with different colors. Similar to the apple notes app.
Notes review

Been quite helpful for reviewing math notes on the go
Shooter708 on 4/16/2018
Grammar app and useful when it works. Constantly crashes and usable 1 out of 10 times. Crashes when switching between pages or notebooks. Would be a 5 rating if this gets fixed.
Add handwriting please
MrsMaruBear on 4/15/2018
I've been using OneNote for I don't know how long, is the best thing ever created, and I've never used it for it's true potential and yet it worked wonders for me. But why there's no handwriting option for iPhone? I've been wanting to bullet journal digitally and came to find out there's jo handwriting option in iphone. I don't have my ipad with me all the time so it would be nice if the iPhone app would have that option too. Will give 5 stars once it's added.
JayBirdPlaysZF on 4/15/2018
I jumped to OneNote at the beginning of my Pharmacy school career this past fall from many sources saying it was better than Notability. That, for the most part has held its end to be true, which I am so thankful for when it comes to needing a reliable source to take notes! Sometimes i know major data suckers like this can tend to be glitchy and that you guys are always working to improve this software. Speaking of which, being left-handed, it would make a world of a difference for me in class, if i could have my right hand near the top of my iPad if when i chose a “Left Handed” support option that it would put this undo button on the opposite side it is currently located on, allowing me to not miss a beat when taking notes and efficiently undo an error right quick. Thank you for the hard work you guys do!
Doesn’t work on my iPhone X

Login issues!
AlwaysLookingForTheNextBestIMApp on 4/14/2018
All in all a good app, but recently it has been repeatedly asking me to login! Other office apps seem to be fine in this respect!
It’s almost perfect
Gaget Magician on 4/13/2018
I use it on Android and IOS. Takes time to learn and understand the interface, but it’s worth it. Has Pros and cons, but powerful.
Good app, missing features
walaskin on 4/13/2018
I honestly use the app more than the web version at this point. For simple note taking, this does exactly everything I need it to.
Asking credentials for every time I open app :(
Vinod kotha on 4/13/2018
Now a day Every time i open the app it is asking me to enter credentials. Please fix it it is annoying.

Won’t work on my iPad

I’ve tried with 2 existing emails, then created a new one, and it still will not open for me.
Only OneDrive???
Berber84 on 4/12/2018
Would be nice if it was a little more universal. Syncing to other clouds like iCloud and Dropbox would be more convenient since people using the iOS app used iCloud.
Great for college students
