Hello folks,


I have a MS Onenote file that I would like to sent it to

my iphone (there is Onenote app on my iphone).

I don.t want to do it through the Skydrive/Onedrive/iCloud and

whatever facility is out there. 


I prefer to do it from my PC directly to my iphone.  I don't quite

understand the export vs copy vs syncing differences.  All I want is to

prepare a note on my PC, and carry it throughout the day on my iphone.


There are several syncing software out there for PC->PC, but neither one

mentions anything about PC-> iphone capability.


Any suggestions.....?


Thank you so much

I am not sure there is any way to use the current iPhone version of OneNote EXCEPT with OneDrive. There is definitely no option to import a notebook by other means in the app itself and there is no option for File Sharing under the Apps section of your iOS device in iTunes (i.e. syncing through the sync cable while connected to the computer with iTunes running). And every thing I saw from a quick search implies that using OneDrive is your only option.

So, it seems like you might either just need to suck it up and use OneDrive OR find another note app that allows "local" syncing.

Thank you very much for closing the subject!

That is what I came to conclude as well.
