For those of you who have an iPhone – good news! A couple of days ago, Microsoft released OneNote for the iPhone, allowing you to create and edit OneNote notes & notebooks and save them to the Cloud. The application syncs with your Windows Live SkyDive account (free) so you can access your information from any computer or device connected to the Internet.
The app is available for both the iPhone and iPad but is not optimized for the iPad. We have not heard anything about the possibility of an official iPad version.
Some of the features of the OneNote app include:
- Creating OneNote notebooks which can then be opened my OneNote Online
- Inserting bulleted lists
- Inserting checkboxes in notes – great for To Do lists or Shopping lists.
- Inserting existing images into your notes
- Take pictures with your iPhone and add them to your notes
- Access your notes online at http://office.live.com
- Access existing OneNote Web App notebooks
Due to the overwhelming response, some users were receiving a “400 login error” when trying to log in. The same thing happened to me. I just kept hitting the login button over and over until it let me in. It appears to be working fine now.
For a limited, the app is free. But there is no promise that it will remain free long-term. So you may wish to hurry if the app is something that interests you.
