Microsoft was one of the first to the digital note taking game with OneNote. Now it’s just one of many in an ever growing field of apps that allow one to document their lives via short notes. How is Microsoft going to compete?
For Windows 8.1 PCs, tablets and phones, OneNote has been updated with a number of new features that make the software more immediate and social. The immediacy comes in the form of pictures and audio recordings that users can add to any OneNote post. The social comes in the form of new sharing options that allow users to share notes across multiple devices.
Here’s a rundown of all the new features in OneNote:
Unlike Microsoft’s other mobile productivity apps, OneNote is completely free to use. You can get it for Windows Phone, iOS or Android. It’s also available on Windows 8 tablets and iPads. If you prefer the Windows desktop OneNote experience, the new version is available to download from the Windows Store.
