Version 15.2
Review by David_D_RI

Now it’s OneNote! And it’s great. - I am extremely happy with the latest update to One Note for Mac. As a person who’s been using One Note on Windows, Mac, and iOS, I was initially frustrated with the early version of One Note released on Apple devices. Inserting files and opening files inserted into OneNote pages is where I found so much value in organizing my work with One Note. Initially, these features were missing on the Mac and iOS version, which complicated and limited my use of OneNote. Now, finally, I can move from one device to another, and MS OneNote is MS OneNote everywhere. I no longer feel like I’m a victim of corporate rivalry instead of a Microsoft customer who also happens to be an Apple customer. If this is a sign of things to come with the next version of MS Office, then I will gladly join the Office365/onedrive universe and merge it with my Mac/IOS/Apple universe. I’m a best of all worlds kind of guy. Thanks, Microsoft. Great product. Certainly amazing value. Other folks out there: This is THE multi platform app to put all of your notes and artifacts for all of your projects in one very usable space and share them (via the cloud) with others collaboratively. Even if you’re only using it yourself, it’s an amazing app. I highly recommend it!!

Review by Isychros

Great on Windows, Crippled on Mac - I am an enormous fan of the Windows version of OneNote. It has served me well in a number of roles over the past five years or so. In a previous job, I had over 30,000 individual cases documented and archived in a OneNote file. Unfortunately, Microsoft has elected to make the Mac version completely reliant on Office 365/OneDrive, their cloud platform. This denies Mac users the opportunity to access OneNote files created on the Windows version, as well as the ability to create and store your files locally. All data input into this program has to be entrusted into Microsoft’s cloud. This raises major privacy concerns, and makes the use of this program outright illegal in certain industries. As a result, this program is coming off my Mac until Microsoft resolves this. Yes, I know it’s free software, but I’d gladly pay for a version that would open the files I use every day.

Awesome App and I can’t believe it was free???! - Wow, because it was free I thought it would be half as good as the original that I used on the PC, but NOPE! It’s perfect. Love this app. Do not hesitate to get it and use it. Works as if not better than expected.

The best notebook ever!!! - I installed MS Note on my Iphone, Ipad, MAC Air and Work computer so I have access to my notes anywhere I need it. I have notebook for Work, school and personal. I can insert photos, pdf, word, powerpoint and spreadsheet files. I bring my ipad in my meetings, I don’t have to bring any paper with me. THIS IS THE BEST NOTE EVER, I have used Evernote, Dropbox, Google drive, but MS Note is the right fit for my needs….I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT, IT’S FREE!
