  • Good article. I am a huge fan of OneNote. I just wish they would get feature parity with the iPhone and windows phone versions. Also, I wish they would fix bugs in a timely manner. The voice to text is broken on the OneNote app for the iPhone

  • Great article! As a fellow OneNote fan I’d like to recommend the Onetastic suite of plugins and macros. Some of them, like OneCalendar, are really useful!

  • Honestly, I have only used the mobile app once or twice. For me, real work happens on the laptop or workstation, not my phone. I use it to capture images, schedule to do’s, and, you know…call people. Oh…and Clash of Clans.

  • Thanks Erica! The calendar app alone is worth the install.

    Great article. I use OneNote a lot and utilize most of your ideas and am now encouraged to use it for several new works. Thanks. Always good to hear from you.

  • Scheduling todo’s, searching for particular notes, clipping web pages is not what I consider real work either. However, it is usually what I try to do on my phone while going through airports and the reason I really want onenote for mobile to improve.
