Microsoft OneNote For iPad Gains Notebook Creation, iPhone App Reduces Size
Microsoft OneNote for iPhone and Microsoft OneNote for iPad have just received updates that deliver several improvements alongside the usual bug fixes. Bringing the freeform information gathering and multi-user collaboration apps to version 2.1, these new updates to Microsoft OneNote for iPhone and Microsoft OneNote for iPad follow the app's similar version 2.0 updates, which arrived early last July. The apps' 2.0 updates are similar in that they both brought easier navigation, table creation and editing, improved note formatting, support for viewing ink annotation and rich text formatting, and SkyDrive Pro and SharePoint syncing. Now, the app's 2.1 updates are similar in that they both carry automatic list detection and improved Japanese typing responsiveness. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Beyond those enhancements, Microsoft OneNote for iPhone 2.1 effects a major reduction in download and installation size. For its part, Microsoft OneNote for iPad 2.1 also adds support for creating new notebooks within SkyDrive and for creating, renaming, or deleting sections, thereby untethering the iPad app from OneNote for desktop. Microsoft OneNote for iPhone 2.1 and Microsoft OneNote for iPad 2.1 are available now in the App Store for free. The apps are compatible with iDevices running iOS 6.0 or later. Note that if you're upgrading to version 2.1 from a version earlier than 2.0, you're advised to sync your existing app prior to upgrading to prevent any loss of data.
