Free digital notebook.


OneNote is your very own digital notebook. With OneNote, you can capture that flash of genius, that moment of inspiration, or that list of errands that's too important to forget. Whether you're at home, in the office or on the go, your notes travel with you. And you can share your notes and collaborate with others, across multiple devices!

Here are some more ideas on how to use OneNote:

  • Capture rich notes for classwork, meetings, or research
  • Keep track of your shopping list and mark items off wherever you are
  • Create an itinerary and keep track of your travel plans for your next big vacation
  • Take pictures of receipts and bills to remove some of the paper clutter
  • Collaborate and share ideas with your team
  • Research items and prices to make the best purchasing decision
  • Keep and edit all of your notes

235 MB - and you still need an online account to give your deepest thoughts to the CIA! No, apart from the conspiracy theory, if the thing is this large - like everything MS does, why can't you use it to store everything on your computer, just like most featherweight note takers? I look at this and I think - grotesque. They write their code in long-hand with a 2B pencil.

Have been using one note on my Mac for several years now. Took extra time to get it synced to start but has been great up till NOW. This new 2019 update has not synced notes, doesn't seem to like my password "sometimes" and other times it's ok. Get this FIXED!!! Upgrades are not free and the extra time spent trying to figure it out to get it to work is unappreciated and costly to small business. Very Sad how low the quality of this new upgrade is.

Data sync works weird and web clipping is miserable. No better than just Select All - Copy - Paste in Microsoft doesn't seem to know that there is a simplified "Reader Mode" in some browsers like Safari, that can save you tons of trouble clipping through HTML DOMs.

I had this App for about a year had tons of notes in and then after a certain # update nothing would sync. I tried everything Microsoft suggested even starting a new account with a blank notebook... digging deep in folders and deleting preferences and other MS crap. I went round and round with them for two weeks and Still Syncing spun for hours before saying there was an error in Syncing... Never had a problem with any other App on my Mac that Syncs to the cloud... finally I copied all my OneNote Notes and pasted into Apple Notes and Never a problem again.. I deleted all traces of anything Microsoft from my MacBook Pro and works fantastic.. I use Google Docs for anything Office related as do many companies now... plus eliminated 5gb of MS Bloatware from MY internal SSD... now I use that 5GB for Storing Local content as opposed to Relying on Microsoft's Non-Syncing Cloud. Don't need no Snotty, Smelly, Unkempt Window IT guy to maintain my Systems... just an excuse for them to keep them creeps around the office.

The following video demonstration convinced me NOT to use OneNote: Vendor lock-in has always been a significant issue with this type of "Everything Bucket" style apps. Several people persistently urged me to try it. No way I will commit to this bloated app.

OneNote came with my MS Office Purchase. Word, Excel and PowerPoint all work fine but OneNote kept showing an error when I tried to open it. After several attempts to get support for the problem, unsuccessfully, I decided to remove the programme. I'll try to find out how to re-install but haven't found where this can be done.

Lack of local storage is the main reason I don't use this product. I found it very useful on Windows 10 and wish there was a free alternative on MacOS. Evernote costs money and I refuse to be a revenue stream.
