OneNote is one of the most popular note-taking apps available across all platforms. OneNote has its app for Mac (4+ rating in Mac App Store), Android (4.0 rating), Windows (4.3 rating) and iOS (4.5 rating) with good ratings as well. Not only this it is updated with new features on a regular basis.
We even hear from Evernote fans who acknowledge OneNote’s appeal but are hesitant to make the switch due to the fact that all their ideas and information reside in Evernote.
Microsoft has yesterday announced a tool that will help you import your Evernote notes into OneNote. “The OneNote Importer tool (for Windows initially)” will migrate all of your Evernote content into OneNote. The tool gives Evernote users the opportunity to switch to OneNote and have all your notes in one place, on all your devices. They will also deliver the Importer tool for Mac in the coming months. Download the tool from here.
OneNote offers a free-form canvas where you can mix text, images, documents, handwriting, audio, video and more; free offline access; and unlimited monthly uploads.
While OneNote is free on all devices Evernote Premium ($49.99/year) is more than 70 percent of the cost of Office 365 Personal($69.99/year).
How to migrate your notes from Evernote
To get started migrating your Evernote notes to OneNote, you will need:
- A PC with Windows 7 or later. Once your Evernote notes are imported, they’ll sync across all your devices—Mac, iOS, and Android included.
- To speed up the migration process, it is recommended you have Evernote for Windows installed. Sign into Evernote for Windows with your Evernote account and make sure your latest notes are synced before importing.
