Microsoft recently rolled out OneNote version 2.0 to users, bringing several much needed changes to the note-taking and management app. Of the changes made, a consistent experience across multiple platforms and enhanced rich text formatting were the most apparent.

The latest version of OneNote also fixes several issues that users were seeing when attempting to sync data through Microsoft’s SkyDrive cloud computing service. This was one of the major features of the app which was created to work on Windows Phone, iOS and Android devices. In addition, version 2.0 has also improved rich text formatting and “Ink annotations” viewing for iOS devices. Tables can also be inserted into files and users can now edit existing tables created on another device.

Last but not least, the app has been optimized to take advantage of the 4-inch Retina display found on Apple’s iPhone 5.


Those of you who are interested in downloading OneNote for iOS can do so for free from the App Store. One thing to note here is that the 500-note limit which was previously imposed on older iterations of the software has also been lifted. Microsoft cautions existing users to back up their data before upgrading to the latest version as well so if you’re making the upgrade, be sure to follow the guidelines!
