+Pratip Sarkar​ Sorry, but I will stay with Android N, because OneNote is the only app which doesn't work.

Hello, I am writing because after a recent upgrade the responsiveness of OneNote has become abysmal. Examples, Syncing and simply open the app takes a long time, get spinning dots for 5 to 10 seconds. Syncing seems to stop until restarting the app sometimes. Typing in charachters is the worst now though, type a letter then wait about 3 seconds or more for the letter or action like hitting enter to move down a line to happen. I experienced none of this slowness in previous versions.
I am using it on a Galaxy Note 4 with ver. 6.0.1

I keep getting Unfortunately, OneNote has stopped on 5.1.1 Xperia Z Ultra. I tried the BETA with the same results. Any ideas?

1. Very very unresponsive - I have couple of notebooks in one note. When I select any notebook it is unresponsive and does not open. 2. Keeps on opening the same notebook repeatedly - even if I select notebook A, it does not get highlighted and notebook B is highlighted all the time. 3. Extremely slow to sync - changes in notebooks do not show up even on manual sync. 4. Interface is very clumsy and requires a lot of polishing to make the app more user friendly.

Is there a good reason why OneNote for Android still does not have push sync of changes to notebooks?
It's bad enough it took until November 2014 for iOS to get it, but it's mid 2016 and still nothing. What's the use of the OneDrive-Office ecosytem if we get stranded outfield with missing or outdated notes that work out more elaborately on desktop OneNote.

+Jonard Carpio I shouldn't have to sync it manually, it should do it automatically, also there is one notebook that will not sync manually, no matter what I do. I am just so frustrated.

Missing undo option: Still thinking that OneNote for Android should have Undo option. On Windows counterpart, pressing <CTRL>+<Z> can perform undo several times. Other note-taking apps (such as Note Anytime, S Note or similar) have multi-undo capabilities. OneNote for Windows also tracks page versions automatically. It is common to accidentally delete data through an accidental finger swipe (eraser selected)...

The developers have said this will be in the next major release. But we don't know when that is.
But I agree exactly, you have to be so careful or you can accidentally delete a lot of info.

Left Evernote for OneNote after the latest fiasco. All I need to make the transition complete, is to have a real web-clipper application for One Note on ANDROID. I research constantly from my Samsung Note... Web Clipping is essential. Any possibilities of getting this functionality?

Is it just me or are autocorrect and predictions turned off in the Android keyboard when editing notes? It's pretty hard to type without that! I'm using the latest beta on marshmallow on a n6p.

I'm using onenote on Samsung Galaxy Note 4, android 6.0.1 and some times I create a new note, I can't write with the s-pen stylus because onenote says "Read only note..."... anyone with similar issue?

On mobile, how do you share the content of a web page to Onenote and not just a link? I've tried sharing directly to Onenote and sharing via the sharetoonenote email address. Both just share the link.

Yes it's not the best clipping, but it works.

Maybe this can be added to badge, and have some function as emailing..... Share link to badge and select a clip option. Then onenote on server side will create a new note and do the web clipping.

Hi, when do you guys plan on implementing password protected sections on the Android app? I see it repeatedly requested by users in this Google+ community since 2014. That's really a very long time to make people wait. I can't imagine why you are releasing updates for writing in Hindi before adding the ability to work with password protected sections. When will you add this basic feature?

Please allow storing notebooks on external storage (such as microSD cards). I have several big notebooks and can't access them on my phone which seriously limits the usefulness of Onenote.

Actually, I don't know if you've noticed, but Microsoft seems to really prioritize OneNote on Windows platforms. Compare for example OneNote on Windows and any other platform - on Windows, it's more robust with better features and options while on every other platform, it's rather bare-bones. Not to sound mean, but my hope is that, as Windows Phone dies (it's virtually dead now) Microsoft will put more focus on feature parity with Android and, God willing, the web client too.

Hello.
I have an account Microsoft but not with a Microsoft domain (live or outlook).
It seems that Onenote Android refuse the connexion. With a PC, it's ok.
Onedrive and Outlook Android are ok.
Is there another raison ?
Thanks
Christian.

I've been trying to test OneNote a little more in the last week. But the syncing of this application is still just too slow and unreliable. I have a Notebook that I can't open on my tablet, it opened fine on the phone however.

But I still find it hugely frustrating that I open OneNote and have to wait for it to sync up.

As for sync. I just always find Onenote isn't ready when I open it, and takes an age to then sync. I guess being able to background sync one notebook might be nice?
