Back in January, Microsoft announced the release of OneNote, a digital notebook program for iOS-powered devices (iOS 4.2 or later). With the app, iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad users can:

- Create notes that contain text, images, bullets and checkboxes
- You can easily check To Do items while on the go.
- Seamless access to your most recent notes.
- Notes are automatically synced with Windows Live SkyDrive. The process is done in the background.
- Sort notes by sections.
- Use OneNote 2010 or OneNote Web App to create new notebooks.


“People who use OneNote often wonder how they ever lived without it. It gets some of the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any app. For me, OneNote is where I collect and organize notes, ideas, links to websites and pictures. It can also capture handwriting, audio recordings and video clips. From my PC, the easy-to-search format means any of these tidbits of information are always at hand. Online or on my phone, my lists are always up to date and accessible for reference. Now iPhone users can have many of the same advantages as their Windows Phone counterparts,” said Corporate Vice President of the Microsoft Office Product Management Group, Takeshi Numoto, when the app was rolled out.

Microsoft has recently updated OneNote to version 1.1. As the Redmond-based software giant explained, version 1.1 is easier to use than the previous release, and it comes with a few new features as well.

Here are the new features and ease of use improvements available in version 1.1:
- It’s easier to delete notes that you do not want anymore.
- More intuitive icons and a Home button that makes it simpler to select or move between multiple notebooks.
- Simplified sign-in screen and more help with getting a Windows Live ID account
- Email notes from within the app.
- Faster notebook syncing
- Improved overall performance
- A more comprehensive OneNote Mobile for iPhone Help page in an easy-to-scan FAQ format.

Common questions like how to sync your mobile notes with OneNote notebooks on your computer are answered in the new OneNote Mobile for iPhone Help page. To access the Help page you need tap Settings -> Help and Support.

If you would like to get OneNote for iPhone, you can grab it from the App Store here.
