When I heard that Microsoft was rumored to be working on OneNote for the iPhone I was intrigued but skeptical. I was skeptical because I have found most of the stuff Microsoft has released on iOS to be garbage, and with their own phone to support I had very low expectations. But since I use Hotmail, have data on SkyDrive with several of the Office Online apps, I was interested in how it would work.
And then I saw on BGR that it was available … and for FREE, so it was time to check it out!
Here are the details:

So far I have only been able to play with the app for a short while, but it looks like a decent way to keep track of notes on the go. Definitely worth checking out if you are an Office Online user!
