  1. Request onenote clipper for ipad/iPhone

    Since now apple has allowed more sharing functionality and there are apps that allow clipping of content from safari to other notes app, I hope onenote can come out with a clipper app for onenote ipad/iPhone that allows us to share and save information. The app I saw was "clips" and it made use of the widget function to capture info to be used later on. I hope onenote can have one that allow us to capture anything over to the notebook, be it from safari or other pdf reader apps. Thanks.

  2. Real-time Syncing and push-sync for iOS devices

    Follow the pattern of similar services like iCloud or Pocket, syncing changes to the server immediately and then pushing them to mobile devices. When I enter changes in the Windows or Mac app and then open OneNote on my mobile device, the changes sometimes take more than a minute to sync. Ideally, you would open the mobile app and the changes will have already been pushed to that device.

  3. Let's create a "Reading&Study mode"

    It will be very useful for student to have a "Reading&Study mode" on the app. This new feature isn't yet implemented (you have to scroll, to zoom, ecc). My ideas is to have a standard view that allow to read notes, like an ebook. This feature is already implemented on MS Word 2013, but not in OneNote.

  4. You MUST have a method to turn autocapitalization and "spell checking" OFF on ios (and everyhwere else)

    i have abandoned onenote because I could not see how to turn off auto spell checking and worse auto capitalization.
    if the app cannot simply record what I type as I type it, it is useless.
    (this was on ios)

  5. Sync notifier as 58% completed, all regional font support, expand/collapse paragraph/sub pages, searchable task with alarm,color picker font

    As all user waiting to finish synchronized, if an sync notification with digital as 58% completed, there is no need to wait. All regional font support is necessary for an world best app, expand/collapse paragraph/sub pages important for an clear and detailed view, if tasks are synchronised with outlook reminder, it is a world's most best app.

  6. Allow OneNote to connect to 365 without neededing a consumer Microsoft ID

    Currently enterprises looking to rollout OneNote on mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows Store) to employees need to worry about hooking up the app to the users personal Microsoft ID as it is a foundational requirement before being able to connect to 365. This is a huge blocker to enterprise adoption and deployment. Users should be able to start with either a consumer or 365 account.

  8. More Drawing tools

    Air brush, needs a bitmap drawing mode, would allow to sketch, greatly enhancing what the program can be used for, the iPad app Notes HD has a powerful stencil feature that lets you do sketch notes with ease, and would be a fantastic addition to what OneNote can do. Could implement as a page layer possibly.

  9. Better ink support

    Existing ink in ON for iPad, while welcome, needs work in some key areas to be a better alternative to existing iPad ink apps. Specifically, it needs:

    * palm rejection
    * much smoother ink/faster capture (a performance or sampling issue?)

    Without palm rejection, the writing experience is very uncomfortable, and without improved smoothness and resolution of the ink capture the results are mostly illegible. Combined together and ink is effectively not worth using.

    In my case I have to look to upad for a proper smooth ink experience, which I then must export into ON. In the process I lose…

  10. One more request for Diary/Journaling features

    With a great way to share directly to OneNote in iOS8 (not so great with Android) there is a potential for OneNote to be used in everyday life as a journal app (I have app "Day One" in mind).

    Why?

    We snap the pictures on smartphones like crazy, and feel very safe when they're backed up in OneDrive. Of course we share them in social media/instant messaging app of choice.
    But that's it.

    Now, what if there was a fast and simple way to just drop favorite ones to OneNote from our smartphones just as I would post/IM them but…

  12. Add location to notes to see where it was taken

    Add a Picture to my OneNote is easy, take a note is easy but it's hard to remind where I did it?

    If there would be the location eg. Location from Google Maps or Facebook (manually or automaticly) it would bei easier.

  13. Feature parity between iPhone 6 plus version and iPad version.

    Hi. Apple's iPhone 6 plus apps, when in landscape, look more like iPad apps than iPhone apps. For example the Mail app has two panes with the option to enlarge the email pane. Safari has actual tabs instead of a tab button, and so on. It is remiss of third party apps, most importantly OneNote, to restrict iPhone 6+ users to the same functionality as the iPhone 5 and 6. At least give us an excuse to use the text editing features in the landscape keyboard.

    (Same goes for the rest of the apps in the office suite.)

    Something like…

  14. Handwriting Fluidity on iPAD

    I think it would be great if you could incorporate seamless handwriting using a format similar to that of GoodNotes - so that you can write like you're writing in a notebook and not have to always pick your hand up to scroll over or write so large that you write for pages. Anyways, love that we can use OneNote to hand write now on iPAD, just trying to make the handwriting feature a little better :) Thank you!

  15. Support Handoff in iOS and OSX

    Since OneNote already generates note link URLs, I'm hoping it's fairly easy to implement basic handoff support so I can open a OneNote note in my iPhone onto my Mac, or vice versa.

  19. Speak Selection

    On the note app that comes with the iPhone and on Evernote we can select a text and the iPhone give the option of read the text for us. But on One Note even having enable this action (speak selection) on accessibility One Note don't give us that option.
    It would be amazing if you can add this option and even better that let us (costumers) download a audio file of the text on One Note.
