OneNoting to An Organized Life

I have used many notetaking apps before esp on the IOS platform in my iPhone.

I have found OneNote to be the best in practical utility.

First it is available in both the Windows and mobile platform and the notes are sync. This is a very useful feature and ensure that my notes are with me all the time when I am on the move as my iPhone is with me at all times, not necessarily the computer.

The sections and folder structure makes organizing my information accumulated easy for both input and ease of retrieval. Information is power only when well organized and retrieval is not cumbersome.

The ability to subpage a page is also great and provides another level of organizing my information.

Color tabs are also useful and add to the ear of organizing and retrieval.

Having different notebooks too aids information organization.

Full-feature editing features too make for versatility. Don’t types and sizes. Bullets types. Indenting. Bold, italic. Hilighting. Hyperlinking.

The OneNote together with Minjet’s MindManager are my ‘Command Centre’ and main productivity tool. I implemented David Allen’s GTD-like features on them. My information database is built around them. OneNote provides the linear mode organization while the MindManager harnesses my darting/monkey and creative minds.

Fantastic app to make a note!!

I have been using this app since 2016. It’s perfect and helpful for categorising my notes in different parts. After using OneNote, I don't use any notebook or any papers. It’s perfect; I can read my notes everywhere and every time.
It has done my work quickly since it has the ability to search in the picture too and no need to waste time to search all of the paper to check one word in your notes. I love it and always recommend it to anyone.

Thank you so much.

Just too good! ,

Nice app, not perfect but it’s also free with online backup.

I was using this app while waiting for a discount on Notability. In the process I seem to start to like it. Like all other it has a filing system which takes a bit to understand. It also allows multiple type pencil pens and markers. I don’t know if there were background options as I’m into basic notes.

I also take pictures off the screen projector in lectures and it’s got a self correcting software when you take it at an angle which I found to be unique. The few issues I have is that it has an infinite border less paper and it doesn’t take videos which could be good if it does.
