Microsoft’s OneNote has just been updated to version 2.14, bringing some nice changes to the note-taking app.
Most importantly, the iPhone version of the app has now been made universal for the iPad/iPad mini as well. That makes a lot of sense, and should be easier for users to keep track of updates.

Another great improvement is the app’s new Notification Center widget. From the widget, users can create new notes, start a list, and access recent notes.
I have way too many Notification Center widgets, but I’m glad to see OneNote finally join the party. It will help power users access their information more quickly and easily.
Users can also find their most recently edited notes in the new Recent Note view.
Apple Watch users can also take advantage of the well-designed watch app that allows quick access information and the ability to dictate new notes directly to their wrist. Here’s an interactive preview courtesy of our sister site WatchAware.
Microsoft OneNote can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. If you’ve previously used the now obsolete iPad-only app, definitely download the new version so you can receive timely updates.
Just last week, Microsoft officially unveiled the latest version of its Office suite for Mac users. Office 2016 includes the OS X version of OneNote, and can be accessed with a subscription to Office 365 starting at $6.99 per month.
