Today Microsoft released OneNote Mobile for the Apple iPhone. Is this the start of a number of releases from Microsoft for the Apple mobile platform?

And best of all, OneNote Mobile is currently free. I’m guessing that as it say “for a limited time” that they will start charging for it – so take my advice and download it now!

Microsoft OneNote Mobile is the easy-to-use, powerful note-taking application for all of your ideas, brought to you by Microsoft Office. OneNote Mobile lets you create and view notes and lists whenever you need them. Sync your notes with free Windows Live online storage and access them from virtually anywhere using your phone, PC, or almost any web browser.

With OneNote Mobile, you can:

Create flexible notes that can include text, pictures, bullets, and checkboxes
Check To Do items off on the go
Save time with quick access to your most recent notes
Work with confidence—OneNote Mobile automatically syncs your notes with Windows Live in the background
Organize your notes into sections or create new notebooks using OneNote 2010 or OneNote Web App and access them from your iPhone

Requirements:
iPhone or iPod touch must have iOS 4.2 or higher
A free Windows Live ID is required to use OneNote Mobile —use an existing one or let OneNote Mobile help you sign up
Web functionality uses the free OneNote Web App available on Windows Live, which requires a supported web browser
OneNote Mobile opens notebooks created in Microsoft OneNote 2010 or the OneNote Web App
Customizing section colors requires Microsoft OneNote 2010

OneNote app

As of the time of posting this story, OneNote Mobile is not yet available in the UK App Store, but it is available in the US one.

I’m a big fan of OneNote on the PC so I am really looking forward to seeing what the mobile app can give me.
