  1. App is very slow to start up

    The Android app is very slow to start up. Often times you just need to check something and want to get to your notes quickly (or jot down an idea), but the app needs 3-5 seconds to startup even on a faster phone. That is very frustrating many times and counter-productive always.

  3. In-app "Send feedback" option should acknowledge feedback was sent

    I tried submitting an idea first using the "Send feedback" option in OneNote (in the "..." menu on the screen that lists notebooks) but after doing so nothing happened... no popup acknowledging that I'd sent feedback, no email saying you would look into what I suggested, nothing showing up on this UserVoice so that others could vote for it.

    From this I got the feeling that maybe the send feedback option is a black hole. Does it even work at all?

    So, I suggest you improve it so that it does acknowledge, somehow, that the feedback was received. Maybe it…

  4. OneNote support for current generation of amazon Fire Tablets

    I don’t understand why Microsoft won’t have OneNote on fire Hd tablets considering their popularity particularly in academia! Totally unacceptable!!

  5. Universal user interface as in iOS and windows

    I have read a lot of comments about this an it would really be helpful if the User interface becomes universal as in iOS and windows.
    Onenote for Android looks really dull and abandoned
    The tags, text formatting and drawing functions are really basic and turn OneNote into a really bad note taking app. It doesn’t take OneNote into its full potential and that’s a shame for Microsoft
    As a current user I would appreciate if this points are taken in consideration for the development of the app

  6. Change size of the page

    It would be great if I you would add an option to toggle on and off infinite scrolling both diagonally and horizontally and if you could instead use the size of the page you want like A4 or A5. I just want to use one note like I would use normal notebook, (kinda like app bamboo paper).

  8. Hide badge overlay

    I like to hide the badge overlay which is distracting and just use the notification bar shortcut to add quick notes.
    (Just like Evernote's notification bar shortcut for simple notes)

  9. Adding more custom pens

    I want to be able to add more pens! As of now, I can only have 4 personalized pens. On the Desktop version, I can add many many more (although overall still not as good as the 2016 version). This is a must-have feature for me on the Android version.

  10. [Feature Request] Let us choose the default section that automatically opens in OneNote app Android

    Let us choose either of the 3 sections (Note Books, Search, Sticky Notes) as the default when we open OneNote app on Android.

    for example I use OneNote app on Android mainly to stay in sync with my Sticky Notes on my Windows PC so I want to see Sticky Notes section first when I open OneNote app on Android, but it's on the far right side.

  14. Create links from images and click them without Ctrl

    Right now creating links from images is only supported for Windows, would love to see this option for android as well, image links are ignored at the moment.

  15. Lasso and change ink stroke and color

    It would be incredibly nice if I could lasso something that's already written and change the ink stroke or color. That would save me a TON of time when I realize that I want my ink in another color!

  16. Better font formatting for Android phones

    Things like the ability to choose the type of font, and font size are crucial if you want to take notes properly. OneNote already has the ability to support these given that if I were to paste text from another source, OneNote is perfectly capable of showing the right font selection and font size so why can't the option to choose these myself also be added to the app? Even if you can't add the extensive customisation of Word, a simple option to choose between 3-4 different heading styles that many other apps already do with ease using markup would…

  17. Add font styles and headers

    This idea has already been posted, but the dumb Microsoft employ marked it as "complete" and cited an update completely different from the problem.

    The ability to change text styles, such as to create headers, is a basic, essential, and EASY TO MAKE feature in note apps. It has been done in Google docs for a very long time. It should have been in this app years ago. YEARS AGO. Please add it.

  18. Add basic geometric shapes. Lines, Circles, rectangles. Nothing fancy, just ... shapes

    Its impossible to draw a perfect circle, but computers are amazing at it. Shapes please!

  19. Straight lines and basic shapes

    Graphing would be so much easier if this was possible. Having to graph on a line that looks like anything but a straight line isn't easy.

  20. 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
