OneNote 1.2 Respects the 'Make It Easier' Tradition

Before we start talking about OneNote 1.2, the update that was recently rolled out by Microsoft, we need to take a quick look back. When Microsoft released the OneNote app back in January 2011, it meant to provide an easy way for users to keep text, video, audio and other content types in a single location. Corporate Vice President of the Microsoft Office Product Management Group, Takeshi Numoto, said at the time that “people who OneNote often wonder how they ever lived without it.”

In May, when Microsoft announced that it updated the OneNote app to version 1.1, it touted the fact that it added new features and that it made the app even easier to use. The updated version made it easier to delete notes, featured more intuitive icons, had a simplified sign-in screen, a more comprehensive Help page in an easy-to-scan FAQ format, and came with improved performance.

Today, the 26th of July, Microsoft announced that it updated OneNote to version 1.2 and that the update stays true to the “make it simple” philosophy. Or to put it in other words, the update makes it even easier to use the OneNote app.

“One of the unique qualities of Microsoft OneNote, and the reason it so often becomes an indispensable tool for those who use it regularly, is how effortlessly it lets you collect, share, and find all of the information that you want to keep track of — all in one place,” explained Microsoft’s Michael C. Oldenburg. “It is the goal of the OneNote Mobile team to make sure that each new release makes it easier to capture and access all of your notes and ideas whenever you're on the go.”

Oldenburg went on to say that the updated app brings with it a few new features as well. The following new features:
  • New search feature that you can use to retrieve important information from notebooks, sections and pages.
  • Pin favorite notes to the top of the Recently Viewed list.
  • Sync notebooks that have been shared by others with you on Windows Live SkyDrive.
  • Exclude certain notebooks from being synced to your phone.
  • Set the image size for photos.

With version 1.2 the OneNote app is available in five additional countries: Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

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