Editors' Review

by   / July 15, 2016

Microsoft OneNote is a robust iOS app that enables you to save text, media, and Office documents in your notes.


More than text: Microsoft OneNote captures and preserves not only text, but also photos, drawings, Web clippings, lists, voice recordings, and Office documents.

Great organizational tools: Create pages, sections, and notebooks to house your notes for easy discovery. Pin your most-used pages for easy access.

Checkable lists: You can insert checkboxes into lists, then check them off at any time. If you start a list with the checkboxes, they'll continue to appear for each new row just like bullet points. Or you can go back later and add them to individual rows.

Sync across devices: You must create a free Microsoft account to use this app, and the upside is that you can access your notes on any device where you've installed OneNote. That means you can create a notebook on your computer, edit it on your iPad, and check off a list on your iPhone. Changes you make in one place are immediately reflected on all other devices, so you can always view the most up-to-date information from anywhere.

Real-time collaboration: Share notes with others and collaborate in real time, so you see changes as they're happening.

Added privacy: If you'd prefer to keep your notes to yourself, you may add password or TouchID protection to them.


Small-screen limitations: Because OneNote offers so much functionality, the iPhone's small screen can make it hard to view some long and complex notes.

Bottom Line

Microsoft OneNote is a powerful, versatile, and convenient app to help you stay organized.
