      Microsoft OneNote vs GoodNotes opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Microsoft OneNote is still a legitimate alternative to GoodNotes, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      one note insistence on sign in bothersome. Force feeding cloud concept when all evidence indicates that centralized storage invites hack attacks

      Your scope is too wide. The only thing they have in common is the ability to take notes, which really covers thousands of apps. This does not take into account the primary functions of GoodNotes. OneNote is an alternative to EverNote.

      I like things simple and easy instead of a lot of icons and options to select froms. I like the simple way of taking notes. What I would like is it would be nice to be able to draw forms and combine them that automatically recognize and correct the forms. I have been using mostly some rectangles line and square, but when you want to move or make big, it is complicated to shore one piece as it does select the other instead of the one you want. Overall it is good but still need some improvements.
