In Microsoft OneNote, users can enter typed text via keyboard, create tables, and insert pictures. However, unlike a word processor, users can write anywhere on a virtually unbounded document window by just clicking there. Also, users do not need to explicitly save their work – OneNote saves data automatically as the user works.

OneNote saves information in pages organized into sections within notebooks. The interface provides an electronic version of a tabbed ring-binder, into which the user can directly make notes and gather material from other applications. OneNote notebooks collect, organize, and share possibly unpolished materials – as compared to word processors and wikis, which usually target publishing in some way.
OneNote is a notebook for to-do lists and meeting notes, vacation plans, or anything you want to organize or remember. You can type, record audio or snap a picture and OneNote saves it. Your notes sync across your devices so you can access them wherever you go. And you can easily share your notes with others. OneNote has free apps for PC, Mac, Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Android and Android Wear devices. And you can browse to onenote.com to get to your notes.
