Everyone’s favourite note-taking application (sans Evernote), Microsoft’s One Note has arrived in the Apple App Store. Available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, its refreshing to see even more Microsoft divisions servicing consumers. Obviously Microsoft sells their own mobile phone platform – Windows Phone 7, but the market penetration pales in comparison to Apples.
Similarly Amazon operates their software and hardware divisions separately, this means the amazon kindle software is available on multiple platforms, despite them selling their own dedicated hardware device. In reality, not everyone who wants One Note mobile will buy a WP7 device, so this just makes good business sense for Microsoft.
With OneNote Mobile, you can:
▪ Create flexible notes that can include text, pictures, bullets, and checkboxes
▪ Check To Do items off on the go
▪ Save time with quick access to your most recent notes
▪ Work with confidence—OneNote Mobile automatically syncs your notes with Windows Live in the background
▪ Organize your notes into sections or create new notebooks using OneNote 2010 or OneNote Web App and access them from your iPhone

▪ A free Windows Live ID is required to use OneNote Mobile —use an existing one or let OneNote Mobile help you sign up
▪ Web functionality uses the free OneNote Web App available on Windows Live, which requires a supported web browser
