    The ability to sync between devices and work with others on notes and lists and more, especially with the powerful word processor, makes for a very good service.

    I used to have the free OneNote and OneNote2016 and they wouldn't sync together.

    I don't get what you mean. OneNote 2016 is also free, but I believe that under the free one you mean on the UWP one. Anyway, they both sync perfectly to be.

    Too bad Outlook 2016 isn't free as well...

    ok I didn't know both were free, the OneNote 2016 came with the Office package, that's why I assumed it was a paid version. They look different though, even the icon.

    EDIT: ok I just checked and the other one is the OneNote app. Both are installed on my laptop.

    Yeah, they are definitely different. In fact, OneNote 2016 is much better regarding features, that's for sure. Gote example, as. I learned here - in OneNote 2016 you can lock a section, while in the UWP app you cannot. That's just one example, but I didn't have much time to explore.

    When it comes to syncing, I agree those two can have some issues. I always try not to use the two at the same time. When I use the 2016 one, I wait for everything to sync first, then do what I want to do, and then again I wait to be sure that it has finished the syncing. Fortunately, I haven't had any serious issues - I only saw once one if my sections duplicated, and I saw free times hope it created a new section in the notebook called "new section" which I deleted after that.

    Hopefully they will solve these things. In theory, OneNote should support several people sharing a same notebook. I working l wouldn't dare to test with my important notes what would happen if few people edited some stuff in it at the same time. :)
