Wi-Fi Synchronization


Wi-Fi synchronization is designed for users, who prefer to sync directly with PC, without involving any web servers and for those, who have large amount of OneNote data and they want to sync it faster.

MobileNoter Wi-Fi Edition is being purchased by a one-time payment instead of a subscription fee.

MobileNoter allows synchronizing OneNote notebooks two ways, from PC to mobile device and back. High quality of formatting in synced Notebooks allows you to see your data in the same formatting and layout as it was entered in OneNote.

Wi-Fi synchronization should always be performed only from a mobile device’s side.

Wi-Fi synchronization limitations

Password protected sections.
Content in a password-protected section is synced only when the section is unlocked in OneNote. When the section is locked, MobileNoter cannot access it and, thus, the section is skipped on sync.
