Speaking of making notes with Microsoft’s OneNote service, the company has today updated both the iPhone and iPad versions of its official client, making both apps available as a FREE download – (for a limited time).
What is Microsoft OneNote?
OneNote is a software package designed by Microsoft to facilitate the gathering of free-form information and multi-user collaboration. It gathers users’ notes (handwritten or typed), drawings, screen clippings and audio commentaries. Notes can be shared with other OneNote users over the Internet or a network.
The latest update to the network-connected note-taking app now includes updated navigation for easier viewing and finding of your saved notes, as well as improved note formatting and consistency across all your devices.
Editing existing tables is now also possible, as is the ability to view both ink annotations and any rich text formatting edits which you may add to your saved notes. With this new version you’ll also find the ability to sync your saved notes automatically to Microsoft’s SkyDrive Pro and SharePoint services, and, as you do this, your most recently used notebook lists will be synced across all your connected devices.
Optimized for the larger iPhone 5 display, OneNote for iPhone is now available as a FREE download for a limited time. OneNote for iPad is also down from its original price, and is too available as a FREE download (for a limited time).
