OneNote for the iPad
I’ve always been a fan of OneNote from Microsoft. It is an incredibly useful tool. Seeing that my iPad is an incredibly useful tool as well, what better app to have featured here on App Wednesday that OneNote for the iPad.
OneNote for the iPad lets you create a series of Notebooks, collections of information. You can integrate all kinds of content into these notebooks, making them versatile for many different types of daily usage. Within each notebook, you can create various sections to organize whatever content you are assembling. It has some decent formatting tools so you can make notes look good while working on the iPad. I also like the ability to email notes from the app on the iPad to another user. The email recipient receives an embedded version of the formatted note. It’s not a picture, which is good, because it means that the recipient can edit the content when they receive it (and they don’t need OneNote).
The app is free, and with that you can have up to 500 notes. If you want to go beyond that, you can purchase the upgrade for $14.99
If your organization is progressive and using Office365 then you can further find advantage to using OneNote for iPad. The cloud version of OneNote in Office365 gives you easy, secure access from anywhere. If your organization doesn’t use Office365, you can still take advantage of a cloud-based version of OneNote through Microsoft Windows Live.
Let’s hope that Microsoft continues to bring iPad versions of Office to the iOS platform. It would be a win for them and for consumers. Here’s hoping the current batch of rumours is true! In the meantime, grab OneNote and experience this great application for yourself.
