Microsoft Updates OneNote Mobile App To Add Support For iPad

Earlier in the year, Microsoft had released their popular note taking application for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Microsoft Office team has finally updated the OneNote mobile app to add suport for the iPad.

Here’s what’s new in the new version of OneNote mobile app:

  • Support for iPad and iPad 2
  • Localization into several new languages and markets
  • Tabbed user interface
  • Quick note creation in the Unfiled Notes section
  • Table rendering
  • Improved Windows Live sign-in experience
  • Option to sync notebooks only over a Wi-Fi connection
  • Integrated upgrade option

Unfortunately, though the new version can be downloaded for free from the App Store (iTunes link), it allows you to save only 500 notes  (the total of newly or previously created notes). When you reach that limit, you need to upgrade to unlimited use by paying $4.99 for unlimited use on your iPhone and $14.99 for unlimited use on your iPad via in-app subscription.

If you’re planning to stick to the older version, then you will still be able to view, sync, and delete any of your existing notes even after you’ve reached the 500 notes limit. However, you will no longer be able to edit your notes or create new ones on your iPhone or iPad.

Have you been waiting for the OneNote app for iPad? What you think of the pricing?

    I was so excited to see this had been released as I have been waiting for it for a year. Unforgivably it is still is not the answer to my note taking prayers and it would not have taken that much more effort to blow me away. There is still no support for drawing, can’t indent bullets points to sub levels, can’t change font, can’t highlight items, and it still is slow to sync. All of those options exist in the Evernote ipad app and as much as I love the desktop OneNote application and want to go back to it as my primary, I do not feel like I should have to “reedit” my notes when I get back to my desk just so they make sense. Come on Microsoft !!! Give us some real functionality!!!
