There were whispers going around that Microsoft intends to roll out a OneNote app for Mac users, and it does seem as though that such rumors have plenty of legs in them – meaning that, they are absolutely correct. The hugely popular note taking software from Microsoft has been made available as a free download from the Mac App Store, and just like the other versions of OneNote, the Mac version does make use of the familiar ribbon user interface.
Microsoft did mention that your notes can be “styled however you like”, where you pick the special font as well as color that you would love to have, in addition to emphasizing important content with bold, underline or highlights. Apart from that, Microsoft has also announced that desktop Windows users are able to download and make use of the stand alone OneNote app, marking a first as well.
The core features will no doubt be free to use, and there will also be premium features for Office 365 and Office 2013 owners including SharePoint support, version history, Outlook integration and more. Last but not least, Microsoft is working to roll out a spanking new API which enables third party developers to incorporate OneNote features in their apps. Interesting times are ahead… [Press Release]
