  1. Ability to Draw (or at least View) Ink Effects

    I would like to be able to draw/write in the same inks that I have in the UWP version - rainbow, gold, etc. If I can't WRITE in all the inks, I still expect them to SHOW on the screen in the ink that I used in the Windows app version. Everything is just graphics, so it should APPEAR the same on all versions.

    • OneNote for Wear OS

      OneNote for Wear OS is available but it crashes right after you open it. Looks like the last Wear OS update broke it. Fix?

      • Ink to text Galaxy S4 Tab

        Add the functionality for Ink-to-Text in OneNote for Android Tablets. Not everyone has, or wants, to own a Surface and this feature would be delightful for those of us who use tablets for note taking with customers. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Tab is an excellent device with a lot of capabilities, but the OneNote version for Android is seriously lacking in capabilities like Ink-to-Text

        • Enable Check Box Clicking When Notes Are Read Only

          It would be cool for Android (and probably for all devices that aren't laptops or desktops) to have an option to prevent editing of notes, with the exception of check boxes. I use To Do notes for presentations so I can click of the information as I've presented it. But each time I go to check a box, it thinks I want to edit the page and I have to worry about editing information by mistake.
          I currently work around this by using the pen option to check the boxes instead of the actual To Do List Check. would be…

          • header

            Add handwriting recognition

            First of all, i like OneNote! but not on Andriod.
            There are some points which are horrible like the handwriting recognition, because there isn't one for the header.
            The Windows-version allows to handwrite the header but Android does not. And i can't understand why, because Android or Samsung, both come with built-in handwriting recognition. So that would be great, if you please add it!

              • keep same version on galaxy store and google play store

                I have multiple android devices as well as an sufrace pro. I can't uninstall the onenote galaxy app on Samsun S2 tablet. The galaxy store doesn't have lates version. Driving me round the bend trying to sync when samsung device has a different profile..... it wouldn't be an issue if both stores had same version so i could sync quick notes

                • Page size on Screen

                  I have just started using One note on Laptop and on My tablet. I am mainly using for University.

                  One Feature that would help would be to be able to set a page size to write and on the infinite page you would have the lines where that size of page would stop so you stop writing .

                  this would aid the printing of the notes. even though when printing from my laptop the software cuts the notes into A4 a few lines get cut .

                    • Design parity with iOS

                      Make the Android app have design parity/consistency with the iOS app. All you have to do is place both versions side by side and you can start spotting the differences.
                      For example, the tools under the Draw tab look different compared to the iOS app. Why don’t they look exactly the same?

                      • No Instructions

                        There are no tutorials on how to better use this app. I could find no detailed instructions anywhere on how to use this apps features. The only way I figured out as much as I have is by hit and miss. I've wasted a HUGE amount of time just teaching myself the basics. There seems to be a GREAT MANY features to use on this app that I have no idea how to use. Im good with apps..once I'm shown how to use them. Most of us aren't app brilliant..able to figure out how to use these apps with no…

                                There are a lot of wonderful functions in the desktop version that you can't get in the android version, which is really inconvenient when you're using a Chromebook due to lack of keyboard shortcuts. The ability to make subpages and section groups should also be included to keep things more organized.

                                    • There are TOO MANY sections that pop-up on the screen at once.

                                      I only used OneNote for food shopping lists. There are TOO MANY sections that pop-up on the screen at once. I got SO frustrated with all these other 'sections' showing-up, and not being able to find the only one I wanted to work with, that I ended-up deleting the app from my Android.

                                        First of all I would like to have the possibility to adjust the width of the columns of notebooks, sections and pages as I like on the windows 10 app.

                                        Furthermore it is essential to have the possibility to choose whether to show the sections or pages permanently.

                                          I would like there to be a full screen mode to draw like the one on the windows 10 app, with a single bar with all the drawing tools, gaining the space of the bar where there are the section name and the home keys, insert, draw, view.

                                          Also I would also like a full-screen mode with a single bar like the one described above to read the notes where for example the keyboard is not opened when you touch the screen.
