If you’re a fan of Microsoft OneNote and wished that they had a version just for the iPad – you’re in luck. Yesterday, Microsoft launched the iPad-optimized version of the OneNote note-taking app on the Apple App Store. The app allows users to take notes with their iOS devices – just like Evernote, notes are stored in the cloud (via Microsoft SkyDrive) which lets you access them on any device no matter where you are.
The latest version of OneNote features a new UI that takes full advantage of the iPad’s display real-estate, and brings some new additions such as localization into several new languages and markets, tabbed user interface, quick note creation in the Unfiled Notes section, Table rendering, improved Windows Live sign-in experience, option to sync notebooks only over a WiFi connection, and an integrated upgrade option.
OneNote for iOS is available as a free app, but after creating your first 500 notes, you’ll have to decide whether you want to pay for the service in order to create any additional notes.
