Microsoft’s OneNote now available for Android


Microsoft is set to release more of its Windows-centric apps on other platforms, particularly one of their big rivals, Google’s Android. The latest addition is OneNote for Android. OneNote is Microsoft’s clectoric note-taking product.

One-Note is now available for Android owners and is available in the Android Market app store. Microsoft launched it last February 7 and is now available on Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad and Androids.

OneNote for Android features:

  • Bulleted lists
  • Text formatting and images
  • Clickable boxes
  • To-do lists
  • Quick access to recent notes
  • Stores and can access multiple OneNote notebooks
  • Has the ability to sync with your free SkyDrive account
  • Offline access to your notes
  • Spell checker
  • External hyperlink support
  • Table editing

OneNote Mobile for Android is free to use up to 500 notes. Exceeding the free notes would require you to pay $4.99 for unlimited use of the app.

According to Microsoft’s blog post, “If you choose not to upgrade to the unlimited version, you can still view, sync, and delete any of your existing notes even after you’ve reached the 500 notes limit. However, you will no longer be able to edit your notes or create new ones on your Android phone.”
