Back in January we told you about OneNote being released for the iPhone. At the time it was only available for US iPhone owners. Until today…..
Today, Microsoft announces the availability of OneNote Mobile for iPhone 1.2 in UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. The popular Office 2010 program which lets people create notes using text, photos and audio clips and sync those notes with a free online version of OneNote, is now available as a free app for iPhone users.
The app, which has been available in the US since January 2011 is highly ranked in both the free app and productivity categories. Today sees a new version launching in several countries around the globe with improved functionality such as the ability to search across recent notebooks, an image capture feature and access to shared notebooks.
OneNote, the digital scrapbook which is held dear by millions of students, professionals and those looking to organise their life in a more fun and efficient way, will be available as a free iPhone app for a period of time.
Windows Phone users already enjoy a deeply integrated Office 2010 experience, as every Windows Phone comes with an Office Hub, which OneNote is an integral part of. With access to Office, OneNote and SharePoint Workspace all in one place, users can easily read, edit and share documents. With the additional power of Outlook Mobile, users stay productive and up to date while on the go.
Following the forthcoming Windows Phone OS update, codename ‘Mango’ this Fall 2011, Windows Phone users will also be able to author, edit, and collaborate with colleagues across a variety of cloud services including SkyDrive and Office365.
New features include
· Search – find text in notebooks, sections and pages
· Pin recent notes – keep your favourite notes at the top of the Recently Viewed list
· Sync shared notebooks – if others have shared their notebooks with you on SkyDrive, you can now sync them with your device and work on them together; just turn them on in the OneNote for iPhone Notebook Settings
· Choose the notebooks that sync to your phone and appear on the Home screen – you’ll find this useful when you have SkyDrive notebooks that you don’t want to sync or view from your phone
· Set image size for photos you insert – choose smaller image sizes for faster syncing or larger sizes for higher fidelity images
· A new colour scheme that gives the app a lighter look and feelGet OneNote for iPhone from the App Store now
