Important new features come to Microsoft's OneNote for Android
If you happen to use Microsoft's OneNote app for Android, then you will be pleased to know a new update has just been released. As with all updates launched by Microsoft, this one comes with a couple of new features and improvements meant to enhance OneNote's functionality.

Among the most notable new additions are the options to cut, copy and paste within the application. Aside from that, Microsoft made it so users can now send out notes using the Share a Page feature. Keep in mind though that the latter only works on devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and higher.

On top of that, OneNote users will now be able to capture anything while on the move and store it in the app using the new and improved web clipper. Also, the new version of OneNote allows users to access the formatting tools much faster thanks to the newly added improved commanding bar.

Last but not least, the latest update adds support for accented characters using the hardware keyboard and fixes a PDF rendering issue.

The new version of OneNote for Android hasn't been pushed to Google Play Store for everyone yet, so sit tight and have patience, the update will eventually arrive on all phones.

Isn't it ironic...? All Microsoft Apps (including OneNote) are better on Android/iOS than Microsoft's own Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile...!!! On WP8.1 it's absolutely GARBAGE whereas things get a tad bit better on W10M, but still not on par with iOS & Android... What in the world is Microsoft thinking...? Oh well, G'Day!

W10M was behind the innovations curve so Microsoft had to rush it out resulting in a buggy release. In present time WM10 has reached Android jelly bean stability but only reach Android eclair app ecosystem. It's a little too little too late. Alas Microsoft refusal to release new W10M phone is also sending strong signal to app developers. W10M is just serving out the rest of the months before EOL.

Oh yes!!! This is all I needed. I prefer taking notes on the Tab A with S pen over the Surface 3 and 4, but always had to pull out my laptop to export and share them.
