OneNote now available on desktops and Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices
Starting today, Microsoft’s OneNote is available on more mobiles than before, as it has just landed on devices powered by Google’s Android operating system.The OneNote Mobile for Android application has been made available for download via the Android Market, with access to all of the features and capabilities OneNote usually has to offer.
The application was previously available on iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone, and has now reached a broader audience with the release of the Android mobile client.
Regardless of the platform, you will be able to capture and access notes and ideas while on the go with the OneNote Mobile application.
The mobile version of the app will enable those who have it installed on their computers to take their notes with them when traveling.
All of them will be there, “from simple lists and to-dos to full-fledged notebooks which you can share with your friends, family, co-workers, or classmates.”
Syncing OneNote notebooks is easy as well, as long as users have a Microsoft SkyDrive account - which is free. Thus, you will be able to have OneNote notebooks up-to-date and accessible both on mobile devices and of the computer.
On mobile devices running Android, the One Note app offers text formatting, images, and bulleted lists, to-do lists with clickable checkboxes, photo capture with your phone's camera, fast access to recent notes, access to multiple OneNote notebooks, and offline access to notes.
The OneNote Mobile for Android application has been made available for free, as long as it is used for up to 500 notes. Those who would like to use it past that limit will need to upgrade the app for a one-time fee of US $4.99 for unlimited use.
“If you choose not to upgrade to the unlimited version, you can still view, sync, and delete any of your existing notes even after you've reached the 500 notes limit. However, you will no longer be able to edit your notes or create new ones on your Android phone,” Microsoft explains.
The Android application was made available for users in a wide range of markets around the world, including:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niger, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
