  1. 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

  2. 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?

  3. 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…

  7. Include more functionalities available in the Desktop app

    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.

  10. Zoom lock feature for handwriting

    While using onenote for taking handwritten notes I often experience that my hand on the glass causes unintended zoom in and out - resulting in my notes beeing in sizes...

    So - I propose a zoom-lock feature on the drawing toolbar.

  11. 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.

  13. Allow to read .msg files built into the app

    I often attach the original E-Mail into a OneNote page to retain somewhat a feel of not having changed the original e-mail.

    Problem is that you have ot use an external app such as "EML Reader" or the Outlook app, which is not really feasible to just install an extra app for that that i have no use otherwise for.

  15. Undo button in Android app

    Please try to enter an "undo" function in the oneNote app for Android. We must have a way to recover part of text deleted within the note while typing. Thank you!

  16. Sync needs to be much better

    When I tried to look at my notes online the didn't seem to have been sync'd at all. Forcing a sync through the app appeared to be successful but I still couldn't see my files.

    I followed this article https://support.office.com/en-us/article/fix-sync-issues-in-onenote-for-ios-or-android-3d7fd4e9-0fb9-4983-9853-b61b263b0f78 which suggested to attempt to logout on the phone and then log back in again. However when I logged back in again all my notes had been lost. That's two years of notes lost!

    - how is it possible that I could have been using the app for 2 years without realising that it wasn't syncing?
    - why didn't the…

  20. sd

    OneNote can not be installed on the SD card, nor the cache, nor the default Notebook location. It is an option that Evernote implemented already a long time!
