Microsoft has just released a better, faster and touchier version of OneNote for iPhone and iPad. Microsoft had been working on this for some time now on things like Lists, Equations, Paper Styles and signing up for updates. Below you’ll find just a few of the changes available to you when you update this free app.
Updated lists on iPhone
Microsoft has redesigned checkboxes to be more humanly sized. Now you could quickly create a list from anywhere in the app by tapping the + button and selecting List.
You can add new items by tapping Add Item or tapping return after you create or edit an item. In the event you no longer need a list item, simply swipe left to erase it from your view.
Equations on iPhone and iPad
You can now view equations on your iPhone but you still can’t edit them yet – but you can if you own an iPad.
Lined and grid paper backgrounds for iPad
Torn between your love for the straight, orderly lines of ruled paper and the infinite possibilities of free-form note taking? Fret no longer! You can now add ruled or grid lines to your OneNote page. (Click on Image to enlarge).
Sharing made easier with new sign up experience
We simplified the iOS and Mac sign up experience so you can easily share notebooks with your friends, family, classmates, and colleagues. Now all you need is an email address, (it can be one you already have, such as Outlook.com or Gmail) and a password to create a new account and begin working together!
