Woah. I just installed it 2 macs, my iPhone and iPad. editing the same doc open on two different devices with only about 2 second lag between checkboxes and text appearing on each device. This is friggin’ awesome.
The free form editing is great on the iPad and the mac, less useful on the iPhone.
Those two features alone make the sharing notebook experience (I assume once a note is shared between two people rather than two of my devices it does the same thing) way better than anything evernote has created.
Now I do have a lot of content in evernote from over the years, so I’m not going to abandon my current processes for things that I’ve already been working on…but the experience is good enough that new things that are unrelated to existing processes might go into onenote.
Now the one thing I haven’t seen in OneNote is the ability to talk to a bluetooth stylus on my iPad (like the jotscript works with penultimate). That would be really cool and easily eliminate my use of penultimate for casual notetaking. BTW this is a limitation of evernote also, you have to use penultimate with the jot script, and you can see the note in evernote afterwards, but you can’t edit it in evernote.
