Sure! Or at least I can tell you what I like about it. First, I'm old school and like to take meeting notes with a pen, which onenote makes easy. It doesn't translate them, but I'm not looking for that. It syncs those notes with the copy of onenote on my desktop. It clips and stores various objects quite well--images, files, spreadsheets, etc. Its got a browser plugin that lets me pluck any site and insert the content into my notes, either as a link or as a pasted version of the actual html. It also stores any kind of standard document file and allows you to open them in preview or the original program.

One of the best things, from my POV, is it allows pen and print to overlap. I use this all the time. I open a script and can use the pencil as either a multicolored highlighter or a pen to notate my work just like I used to on paper. So, quickly reviewing a script, I might mark out all sound cues with blue highlighter, all VO with green, specific tc call outs with yellow, etc. Then, as I work, I can use a pen to check off things I've done. Its great to work with notes this way too. And all of this will be backed up in cloud and on my desktop for further editing or reference.

There's more, of course. But that's how I use it. Its the easy mingling of pen and type, plus the fluidity of the notebook-like hierarchical organization that makes it work for me. Its very freeform, but very organized. And, with the ipad pro, its very responsive.
