Microsoft releases OneNote for Android

Today Microsoft announces the release of OneNote for Android on the Android Market app store.


With this release, the OneNote mobile apps are available across a variety of platforms — including Windows Phone 7, iPhone, iPad, and now Android . The release allows users to effortlessly collect, share, and find all of the information they want to keep track of, using a variety of features from simple lists and pages to full-fledged notebooks that can be shared with friends, family, co-workers, or classmates.


OneNote 1.0 for Android supports the following features:


•             Text formatting, images, and bulleted lists in any note

•             Checklists and To-Do lists

•             Quick photo capture with a phone’s camera

•             Quick access to recent notes

•             Store and access multiple OneNote notebooks

•             Sync to your free SkyDrive  account for access anywhere

•             Offline access to notes

•             Option to sync notebooks only over a WiFi connection

•             Built-in spell checker

•             Support for external hyperlinks

•             Table editing

•             Free technical support


OneNote for Android is free to download and use for up to 500 notes. When users have reached this limit, they can upgrade OneNote for Android for a one-time fee of £2.99 for unlimited use.


People who choose not to upgrade to the unlimited version, can still view, sync, and delete any of their existing notes even after they’ve reached the 500 notes limit. However, they will no longer be able to edit their notes or create new ones on their Android phone.
