Is It Any Good?

Kids say (3):

OneNote for Windows has long been one of the best note-taking tools available. On a laptop or desktop computer, users can record audio as they take notes, import handwritten notes and drawings, and clip content from across the Web. Unfortunately, most of those features are missing from the app version of the tool. If you already use it on your desktop, you may love having visually appealing access to the data you've assembled on your computer. You can add some text and images, but the features are pretty limited, making the app better for reviewing content than for creating it. For someone new to OneNote, it might be worth continuing the search for a killer organizational app.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
