Day 18 in 365 Ideas for Office 365 is about App smashing. But not really. We have previously looked at the incomparable Math tools under the Draw tab in OneNote. More recently we looked at the Immersive Reader tools found under the View tab in OneNote. Now it’s time for some app-smashing. Except app- smashing actually means using the features of two different apps or websites together. If all the cool features you want are in the same app, is it really app-smashing? You don’t have to leave OneNote to combine the functionality of the Math tools and the Immersive Reader tools.
Once you have selected your typed or hand-written numbers, expressions or equations and clicked on the math tools, and then chosen what you want to see, whether that is to solve for x or y, or find the mean, median, mode, or greatest common denominator, you can also click to see the steps.
That’s the magic of the Math tools. Cue the magic of Immersive Reader. Now you can also click to open those directions in Immersive Reader, with ALL of it’s features- read aloud, reduce visual clutter, line focus- it’s all there. Who needs app-smashing when you have OneNote to rule them all?
