When Microsoft rolled out the final, stable version of Office 2010, it said that there are 10 reasons why you would want to upgrade. One of those reasons was Linked Notes in OneNote. Thanks to OneNote users can keep text, video, audio and other content types in a single location. To make things even easier for the user, the user can dock OneNote to the side of the screen and easily take notes during a presentation.

At the time Microsoft called OneNote the “digital notebook program that many Office users just can’t live without” and said “OneNote is a great application with unlimited potential to help you get things done.”


It would seem the Redmond-based software giant did not want iOS users to go without the functionality that OneNote provides. So Microsoft came up with the OneNote app for iPhone and iPod Touch. The app, which works with iOS 4.2 or later, is already available in the App Store (iTunes link) and it is currently being offered free of charge. But that will not last for long. Microsoft is offering the app free of charge for a limited amount of time.

Should you decide to get the OneNote app, you need to know what it can do. With that in mind, here is the sort of functionality you can expect to get from the Microsoft-developed app”
- 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,” commented Corporate Vice President of the Microsoft Office Product Management Group, Takeshi Numoto.

A detailed explanation on how to get started with the OneNote app is provided by Microsoft’s Michael C. Oldenburg here.
