OneNote as annotator

Microsoft has decided to make OneNote free and available on all major platforms (I guess they think Linux is minor).
More here

For those who like to take extensive notes when reading this should be welcome news unless you purchased it a few days ago.

Note that you'll need an Microsoft e-mail account to use this software; it uses Microsoft OneDrive by default. It's not possible to use it offline.

EDIT: OneDrive 2013 does support non-Microsoft e-mail addresses.

You can have local notebooks, but since OneNote 2013 won't start unless you log in with a Microsoft Account, you won't be able to access them.

Can't print from it either.

You log in with a Microsoft account, but you don't need a Microsoft email account e.g. It works with a gmail account.

I've just double-checked this and found out the OneNote 2013 does indeed support non-Microsoft e-mail addresses.

Yep, it took my non-Microcrappy eMail address. But true to Microcrappy's name, it doesn't work without an internet connection. I wouldn't mind so much if you could only sinc between devices when connected, but to totally lock you out of your data is why Microcrappy needs to die a horrible corporate death. I think they only released OneNote for free because they are getting ready to offer their Office suite on iPad and other platforms, and they will charge for those. It is bait to get us interested. Well I was interested until I realized how utterly useless this product is without an internet connection. Didn't Microcrappy attempt this cloud only crap back in the late 1990s and discover that we told them HELL no?!?

After I installed, the software synced all my notebooks on OneDrive so I now have access to all my notebooks independently of device. I could work with my notebooks on my tablet on the beach when u was off the grid and then when I returned home it automatically synced with the cloud and all changes were immediately available on my other devices. It works for me.

I think Microsoft (and others) are strongly hoping that with the rise in tablets, the cloud will become accepted for all things. It'll just be us Luddites who still have desktop/laptops who want to have our software installed.



I'll be honest, but the stress on all these little one-note apps is really harking back to the days of Windows 3.1 to me....

Downloaded to my computer but it seems sorta crippled. A glorified shopping list maker in 235MB (mac, dunno how big or small the PC version is). I've deleted it until I hear its better than using native mac apps.

Hard to beat free. In OSX I do like $5 Growly Notes (used to be free). Most people recommend Circus Ponies Notebook but now you're talking $30 (varies but what I see priced in iTunes just now). Then you've got some even MORE expensive options such as Curio, DevonThink, and others.

As someone who has used the full Office version for years and years, I find OneNote indispensable when planning a project or when needing to take notes during a meeting or call. Yes, this version requires an email account (any will do), and apparently requires you to be online. That is NOT true of the full, paid version that I use. I can have local notebooks, LAN notebooks, or cloud notebooks. (And my OneDrive syncs to my local PC anyway.)

You guys had me scared for a minute, but I just tested it. Offline works fine for me, just like 2010 did. Cloud notebooks sync up when you go back online.

I've been nervous about MS' intentions both for subscriptions and clouds for a long time, but I'm thrilled with how they're treating OneNote so far. I'm still testing 2013 out on my W8 tablet before I replace 2010 on my desktop, but so far, I see no reason not to upgrade.
