  • Microsoft Set to Update OneNote App with Share Extension Support for iOS 8

    Although iOS 8 is set to be released to the Fall, users will be able to take advantage of several new operating system features including app extensions. The app extensions are designed to allow third-party apps to share services with other apps, allowing apps to work together and interface in ways that they never have before. Developers seem to be hard at work integrating Apple’s APIs into their apps and have been sharing more information on some of the ways app extensions will work.

    Microsoft is said to be updating OneNote for iPhone and iPad to take advantage of Apple’s iOS 8 share extension. The feature adds several new capabilities that may be useful when it comes to the note taking app through built-in share sheets.

    The OneNote button in Safari, will let users quickly clip articles and information from the web, inserting content into the OneNote app. Furthermore the OneNote Share Extension will allow users to export files to OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage service and save photos from the device’s camera roll to the app. The functions built into the OneNote app will become common features in many iOS apps in the future, a move that should make content sharing even easier.

    Apple’s Extensibility APIs let apps access system-wide third party keyboards, add widgets to the Notification Center, share photo editing extensions and more in addition to offering the inter-app sharing features. Microsoft is planning to release its OneNote update on the same day that iOS 8 becomes available to the public, which is bound to be released before the iPhone 6 starts to ship to customers. Those of you interested in downloading Microsoft OneNote can do so for free from the App Store.
