Microsoft OneNote for Mac

  -  533.6 MB  -  Freeware
Microsoft OneNote for Mac gives you an easier way to take, organize, and find your notes and information. Like paper, you can take notes anywhere on the page. Like a binder, it lets you organize your information into sections. But with Microsoft Office OneNote for Mac, you get the flexibility to do even more. Capture virtually any type of information and share it easily. And because all your notes are in one place, find what you need with just a few clicks anywhere--at your desk, in meetings, or on the road.

Buy Microsoft 365 for only $6.99/month - Powerful Productivity Apps! Use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and More to collaborate in real time or work offline.

Get organized in notebooks you can divide into sections and pages. With easy navigation and search, you’ll always find your notes right where you left them. Revise your notes with type, highlighting, or ink annotations. With the app across all your devices, you’ll never miss a flash of inspiration. Great minds don’t always think alike, but they can share ideas and create together in the software.

Teachers can use Microsoft OneNote for macOS to organize lesson plans in searchable digital notebooks, and staff can create a sharable content library. Encourage students to handwrite notes and sketch diagrams.

Features and Highlights

Create your way
Do you scribble great ideas on napkins and sticky notes? Is precise filing more your style? OneNote's got you covered whatever way you shape your thoughts. Type, write or draw with the free form feel of pen to paper. Search and clip from the web to picture ideas.

Collaborate with anyone
Your team is conquering the idea of the century. Your family is planning the menu for a big reunion. Stay on the same page and in sync wherever you are.

Think with ink
Ready. Set. Draw. A stylus or fingertip is the only tool you need. Take handwritten notes and convert them to typed text later. Highlight what's important and express ideas with colors or shapes.

Access from anywhere
Take note. It's easy to pull up your content from anywhere, even if you're offline. Start on your laptop then update notes on your phone. One Note works on any device or platform.

If you are looking for Microsoft OneNote for Mac alternatives, we recommend you to download Evernote for Mac or Simplenote for Mac.

Note: In order to use the software, you need to create a Microsoft account. Start creating in OneNote with an Office 365 subscription.
