Over they last few years, Microsofthas worked to transition OneNote from its initial lecture-hall hall focus into more of a note-taking app for your everyday needs. It’s latest move: pulling users away from competitor Evernote.
To do so, Microsoft is releasing its first ever official importer tool for OneNote, which the company claims can migrate ‘all’ of your Evernote content into OneNote. Once you import them to your desktop, those notes will sync across OneNote on all your devices.
OneNote is a fair bit more powerful than Evernote, so we can see some users making the transition – although whether you need more power in a note-taking app is questionable, depending on your uses.
To import the notes, you’ll need to either have Evernote for Windows installed, or manually export your notes from Evernote on the Web.
Somewhat ironically, you don’t even need to have OneNote itself installed; the company will do that automatically for you if you don’t have it on your PC.
The tool is only available for the Windows version of OneNote at the moment, but the company says it will be available for Mac ‘in the coming months.’
