Roughly a year after releasing the OneNote app for iOS, Microsoft has made the app available for Android-powered devices as well. On Tuesday, the 7th of February, Microsoft announced that OneNote Mobile for Android has been released to the Android Market, free of charge of course.

“For all of you who've been asking (and patiently waiting) for a version of OneNote for your Android phones, we have great news: OneNote Mobile for Android is now available! Download it from the Android Market app store today!” announced Michael C. Oldenburg on behalf of the OneNote team. “Mobile versions of OneNote are currently available on Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, and now Android. No matter which platform you prefer, OneNote Mobile lets you easily capture and access all of your notes and ideas on the go,” he added.

If you are not familiar with the OneNote app, then perhaps this will help – Microsoft describes the application as the “digital notebook program that many Office users just can’t live without” and says that “OneNote is a great application with unlimited potential to help you get things done.” Using OneNote on your desktop, the OneNote web app in your browser, and now the OneNote app for Android, you can create, edit, view, sync and share notes that include text, bullets, and images.

To better put things in perspective, here the list of features Oldenburg provided:
  • Text formatting, images, and bulleted lists
  • To-do lists with clickable checkboxes
  • Quick photo capture with your phone's camera
  • Quick access to recent notes
  • Store and access multiple OneNote notebooks
  • Sync to your free SkyDrive account for access anywhere
  • Offline access to your notes
  • Option to sync notebooks only over a Wi-Fi connection
  • Built-in spelling checker
  • Support for external hyperlinks
  • Table editing
To use the OneNote app for Android you must have a device powered by Android 2.3 or newer and you must have a Windows Live ID (you can easily create one if you don’t already have one). The app opens notes created with the Microsoft OneNote desktop app or the OneNote web app.
