Introducing OneNote

What's the difference between OneNote and OneNote 2016?

OneNote is your very own digital notebook.

Whether you have a million ideas, a million things to do, Or a million things to remember, OneNote is the perfect app for capturing pretty much everything.

Type notes or record audio at your laptop.

Sketch or write ideas on your tablet.

Or add picture from your phone.

OneNote can capture it all and help you find it instantly later.

And once you've captured everything with OneNote, you can organize it however you want.

Freely move notes around the page.

Organize those pages into sections.

And keep your sections in one or more notebooks.

OneNote is as structured (or as unstructured) as you want it to be.

And because all your notes are in the cloud, OneNote lets you switch devices and pick up right where you left off.

You can even share your notebooks with others so you can all view and contribute at the same time, turning a few, isolated notes into a resounding symphony.
