Keeping well-organized notes from lab, meetings, and seminars is essential but tedious. Microsoft OneNote makes the job a little easier. The app, which is also available on Apple products, offers several levels of organization that makes it easy to take and organize notes. Users can create notebooks, create sections within notebooks, and further organize the sections by adding pages of notes, to-do lists, or even photographs. Users are also able to search through their notebooks easily. The app also allows you to share notebooks with collaborators, ensuring that everyone is on the same page. Additionally, the app easily syncs across all your devices. Microsoft OneNote is a well-designed, convenient app that serves as a great alternative to using a physical notebook or other note-taking apps.
