Microsoft One Note information gathering software review by James Meyette

By James Meyette

On Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Microsoft One Note is software that is familiar to Microsoft word but rather than having to use inline text form you can just click onto the page where you want to enter the text and you can can type it in.

This is great for taking notes on your computer, making tables or other things that you would want to do with it.

It does this by saving all of the input information as XML like all other Microsoft office programs. One Note also has the ability to save your data as you work on it in case of your computer crashing or something else going wrong where you could lose your data *saves this review*.

Over all this is a great tool for taking notes and many other things that there only used to be word processors available for, technically this is a word processor, but has many other features included right out of the box.

Pros

  • Use the form as a normal word processor
  • Software also has many other features that are not commonly found in Word Processors
  • Easy to use interface makes taking notes almost fun

Cons

  • The price to obtain the software is unreachable for some potential users

Includes Dismissible On-Screen Keyboard and Office 365 Support on the Latest Update

By Sam James

On Tuesday, February 10, 2015

The latest update to OneNote 365 was very much appreciated by its users. I have to agree that the dismissible on-screen keyboard is very helpful. I always thought they’d change that and now they did. Office 365 support was also welcomed warmly. This way, whenever the need arises to open work notes, users can open them anytime and anywhere. To do this, users can access their Office 365 online accounts. As for the improvement in the on-screen touch keyboard, it has been considered important by many users. It served us good when it enabled us to type anywhere when we take notes, but there are times when it was not needed, especially if you are recording video-notes and audio-notes or reading written notes. Thankfully, Microsoft has changed it to dismissible. Now, users can dismiss, or minimize, the keyboard when they are reading. While these two mentioned were the most important updates, Microsoft also highlighted some changes. It enhanced OneNote’s Pen menu, so users can change color or thickness, and even set favorite pens. It also features support for touch drawing, and recent notebooks roaming list.

Pros

  • Adapted for mobile devices use
  • Provides wider screen for viewing or reading

Cons

  • Latest update must be purchased to be enjoyed

App for Taking Notes Can Also Record Audio and Video Notes

By Sam James

On Thursday, September 4, 2014

OneNote 365 is known as a software used to take notes – you either type or write them. However, it also has the amazing ability to record notes. It can be used to record video or audio notes. Personally, this option works better for me because I can’t really miss anything if I can record everything. For students this is the perfect way to record lectures. In the office, this is the perfect app for recording meetings. It also has the ability to create notebooks of your notes. This is perfect for students, too. This way, you can manage your notes, so you can easily access them for making your assignments or for studying past lessons. This can also be used in the office to create reports. Lastly, it has the ability to enable its users to sync files and share it with one another especially between colleagues for project collaborations in the office. For businesses, this is also good because users who work remotely, can share files online.

Pros

  • Includes tools for project collaborations
  • Includes tools for complimenting your note-taking tasks

Cons

  • Requires purchasing the full version to get its full features

Besides, it provides useful complimentary tools such as a dictionary, a spell-checker and a translator, among some others.

With this program users can create ‘notebooks’ where they would add their notes. They would be able to create as much as they need, having them clearly separated and displayed in different colored tabs at the bottom of the interface. Also, notebooks can be divided into sections.
