Ramping up for my second semester back in school, and Iooking at the Microsoft One Note product.

I currently use a PC laptop, but have an iPhone and iPad Mini and was looking for some note taking applications and this looks promising.

The iOS app is free, so I am downloading it now.

Any feedback or experiences shared would be most appreciated!

What about Evernote?
Link Posted: 1/7/2014 11:42:56 AM EDT
I have it on my work computer,  really nice to share with coworkers via a shared folder.

If you copy/paste from a website it is smart enough to put a link back to the original page for you, pulls Office content natively and while preserving formatting.

No clue on how it works on a mobile device.

I use it daily at work and at home.  I have it synced to my Skydrive account so I can access the same data from anywhere.  Skydrive also has the built in web version so it's easy to access the data even when you're on a machine without the app installed.

I love it.  I use it to track work projects or just general work info that I don't use daily and have trouble remembering.  I copy handy PowerCLI or Powershell one liners in there for quick reference. I find it pretty useful.

I have no opinion on Evernote.

I'm looking for a cross platform solution for personal organization for school.

Thanks the comments

OneNote is ok.  I've used it in the past and had little issue with it.  Where Evernote really shines is cross-platform capabilities.  There is a native client for nearly everything (except Linux) and they have a web-based console as well.

This.

It's not M$ trash and it's cross platform for Android, iOS, and Wind.

Just installed Evernote to check it out.  

Really isn't as intuitive as OneNote is to me.  Guess that's a side effect of using Office daily.  

Seem like a good product though, I'm just used to the other layout.

ETA:  I also don't like the damn ads at the bottom left.

Just don't disable the "Send to One Note" in Outlook like our Exchange admins did. Bastages. This has forced us to print to PDF then send the PDF to One Note.

I am primed to hate everything Microsoft, but I started using OneNote at work and it is pretty great.

OP, you decide on a product?

I've always used it because I've had Office Pro.  Skydrive has made it easier to use.

Haven't had the cash in the bank to download office pro 2013 yet (poor college student and all ).

Looking forward to doing so.
