Microsoft Released OneNote for iPhone, Free for Now!

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:

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

Access your notes online at http://office.live.com.

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!

Check it out at the iTunes App Store.

Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
