Crashes quite often, but great app with huge potential.

Often struggles especially in split screen on my iPad Pro.

Also: Would be great if you could start an audio recording and leave it recording in background without it blocking the screen - maybe even set time limits on recordings so I can record lectures.

Cheers! Keep up the great work!!

Almost perfect

OneNote is truly a valuable tool for students; like me, and great for keeping my notes organised. Being able to type, write and take photos, copies and a scaled and dimensioned copy of the whiteboard, very nifty. Use between my iPad and iMac seems to work well, when it does, updates are slow some days. Just a few more features as having a ruler or protractor, so you can accurately draw, measure. I can’t always seem to draw the straight line I want. It works when it works and most times it doesn’t. Snapping would be good and drawing lines to scale, or parabolas, cubic waves, would be handy for the class room too. Still buggy in areas, like I start to write on the pad then a straight line appears out of the blue to the point where my pen contacts the screen.... weird right?

One note is a revolutionary step forward, from chalkboards, pen and paper to the electronic medium. With a bit more development, this will definitely become the standard required for learning. ,

Bugs, lots of bugs

OneNote is an awesome tool, but I wish they would tidy up the annoying bugs.

Such as having to restart the app every time I wake up the iPad, or bring the app to the front, or parts of a “print to note” doc being invisible until you write over it, such as the mess that is authentication and syncing against the business version of O365.

Even worse is their lack of communication and connection with users. Many of us submitted bug reports about problems with Bluetooth keyboards and OneNote for several years, but that never got fixed (or maybe it has now, I used an iPad Pro with the attached keyboard).
