Microsoft releases OneNote for iPad
Note taking is one of the most obvious things you’d need to take care of on your phone. And while currently Evernote is probably the most popular solution, Microsoft’s OneNote is a worthy competitor. The app has been available for a while on the iPhone and iPod touch, and now it has arrived to the iPad, leveraging all of that extra space on the screen.

OneNote allows you to not only write notes but also sync them, so you can later read or view your writings from another device.

 “A recurring request from our customers has been for a version that can be used more easily on the iPad’s larger screen,” Microsoft’s Michael Oldenberg admitted.

The support for Apple’s tablet comes with a bump in the version number to 1.3. Here’s a list of all improvements it brings:

  • Support for iPad and iPad 2
  • Localization into several new languages and markets
  • Tabbed user interface
  • Quick note creation in the Unfiled Notes section
  • Table rendering
  • Improved Windows Live sign-in experience
  • Option to sync notebooks only over a Wi-Fi connection
  • Integrated upgrade option

Microsoft OneNote for iPad (iTunes link) is free on the App Store, so it wouldn’t hurt checking it out. Don’t hesitate to also let us know your opinion about the app in the comments below.

Why are you hurting your own tablet sales Microsoft ? Having office exclusive to Windows 8 tablets would be a major point of difference!

Do not release Office and OneNote for iPhone and Ipad will allow a large market share go to Google Apps crap.

You have to realize that majority of the tablets out right now our iPads and Microsoft realizes this and sees a way to make a few extra bucks. Windows 8 tablets need to be cheaper than the iPad and the android tablets for Windows tablets to sell well.
if the Windows tablets are cheaper and preform better then people will start to make the shift.

don't see that happening anytime soon but you never know competitions a great motivator
