USER REVIEWS

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

Manages Not Only Written Notes, But Recorded Video and Audio Notes Too

By Sam James

On Monday, March 30, 2015

What is there not to love about MS Office OneNote 365? Aside from its top features, users can enjoy is additional features with its full integration with the latest Office apps available. Additional capabilities for OneNote include: First is the ability to create notebooks on your desktop computer even when you are offline and that does not include saving your notebooks through MS OneDrive. The ability to work offline with your notebooks is very convenient especially if you are having Internet connection problems or simply if you are always not in front of your desktop PC. Second is the ability to support your needs business-wise. If you have a collaborative business with anyone, you can easily share them your notes or other documents online. What’s more, you can protect your business files by adding passwords to them. Third is the ability to record (yes you read that right) your notes. You don’t only have to write or type notes, you can also record them in video or audio voice only. I personally think this is better because you can’t miss anything with this kind of note-taking. It’s perfect for meetings or lectures.

Pros

  • Can record video or audio notes
  • Offers management tools for notes

Cons

  • Full features can only be accessed when subscribed or purchased

Project Collaboration is Now Made Easy with a Note-Taking App for PC and Mobile Devices

By Sam James

On Wednesday, January 7, 2015

OneNote 365 was developed by Microsoft to be included in the MS Office package. Thanks to this good move, MS Office users now have a way to take notes and create schemes for school or corporate projects easily. This utility software offers users a wide range of options for taking notes including recording audio, writing or typing texts, drawings, recording videos, or creating diagrams. Notes can then be emailed to classmates, colleagues, or even family and friends. Through emailing, users can mark their notes depending on the importance of an assignment, task, or project. This note-taking machine also has complimentary tools including a spell-checker, translator, and dictionary. Another top feature of OneNote 365 is its ability to create notebooks or manage notes into a single, sometimes separate, notebook. Notes can be compiled into a notebook, so users can easily retrieve related notes. Notebooks can be managed separately, too. They can be customized according to color or section. This management style is very effective especially for office workers.

Pros

  • Note management can be customized
  • Various complimentary tools are included

Cons

  • Trial version has limited features
