Microsoft recently pushed out a native iPad version of the company’s OneNote productivity app along with enhancements to its existing iPhone version. The popular note taking utility gives users the option to create and edit documents on the popular tablet and then sync them across devices via the cloud by way of Microsoft’s SkyDrive feature. OneNote goes much farther than just offering checkboxes and bulleted items, it allows for an easy composition of to-do-lists and gives users the option to import photos from the iOS camera roll to further personalize your work.

For those of you who are interested in using it, it should be noted that a Windows Live ID is required to download the application (which is free), though you’ll be limited to create a total of 500 notes at no cost. Microsoft decided to go with in-app purchases for the app, requiring users to purchase the ability to create more notes. The price of the in-app purchase is quite hefty though with it being $14.99 on the iPad and $4.99 on the iPhone.


Amongst the new features, you’ll be able to find a new tabbed interface and expanded language support. For those of you who are interested, you can download OneNote on the iPhone 3GS and all newer models running iOS 4.3 or greater. It will now also work on both iPads (the original iPad and the iPad 2) as well.
