When whispers of the OneNote app from Microsoft were confirmed through the release of the app just a few days later, it is interesting to note the level of ‘success’, so to speak, of Microsoft’s free OneNote app for Mac. In fact, the app had already rushed its way right to the very top of the Mac App Store chart, now how about that for popularity?
The Microsoft OneNote is now at the pinnacle of the free application chart on Apple’s Mac App Store, which has taken a relatively short time after its launch to arrive at its current destination. This new program marks itself as a first for OS X after years of availability on the Windows desktop, and happens to be a free download, although it has been licensed only for home and school use through Microsoft’s licensing agreement. Businesses will have to shun this since they would have to purchase the app itself, either in the form of a standalone format at $70 a pop, or as part of Office 2013 or an Office 365 subscription plan.
OneNote has taken over Apple’s OS X 10.9, aka Mavericks, spot in the popularity chart in a matter of hours after its debut. As for the other Apple programs that reside on the chart, those include the third placed iMovie and GarageBand.
