Microsoft announced this week that its popular note taking app OneNote is now available free on multiple device platforms, online, and even the Mac. This comes on the heels of it recently being available online via OneNote.com and Office.com. If you take notes with OneNote, now you can truly access them everywhere and on any device.
On the Microsoft Office Blogs, the company announced three major developments:
- OneNote for Mac
- OneNote is Free Everywhere
- OneNote Service Provides a Cloud API – this allows developers to connect to it via any application
Other cool features of the OneNote service included in the post is OneNote Clipper for saving full web pages with a click, email@example.com that allows you to email notes to OneNote, and Office Lens for capturing documents and Whiteboards with your Windows Phone.
OneNote Everywhere for Free
Office.com replaces Office Web Apps and there you can use all online versions of Office products. And now, OneNote is free to everyone via OneNote.com. It’s been available for users of Windows 8 as a Modern app and Windows Phone, and the Web. Staring Monday of this week it’s free to users of older versions of Windows too, on any device, including a free version for Mac users who can download it from the Mac App Store.
The OneNote app is available for the iPhone, and we have an article that will help you get started with it.
This is exciting news for OneNote users, especially those who use Macs at home or the office. This should also put the screws to the free note taking app Evernote – which is available virtually everywhere for free too. But more importantly, does this mean the company is getting us one step closer to MS Office for iOS?
Here is look at a promotional video of how the OneNote works among all devices and platforms:
