OneNote Beta for Android now sports handwritten notes, support for LG G3, more
Microsoft's OneNote app for Android has been recently updated with a unified user interface, but its beta version got released only recently. Today, we are being treated to the first update to the latter. “What's the big deal about this?”, some may ask. Well, as almost any other app's beta version, the one of OneNote is coming with a handful of experimental and, frankly said, awesome features, one of which is particularly handy - it supports handwritten notes.

You can either input text with your very fingertips or use a compatible stylus. If you are using the app on a tablet, some new additions to the app will enable you to format and customize the notes you take in a lot of different ways – for example, you can change the font types, the very size of the font, the alignment of the text you write, and edit the tags of the notes you create or edit. In addition, the beta version of Microsoft's OneNote allows you to move between your multiple notebooks, text sections, and pages with a simple swipe of your fingers.

The update has also brought in a number of unnamed bug fixes and performance improvements – we are talking about a beta version, so these are most probably quite a lot. Oh, and support for LG's flagship, the G3, is now also on board!

Okay, but... how does one become a beta tester of OneNote? Follow the first two links at the bottom of the article and find out!

Because everyone wants an app from Microsoft that steals all their ideas, so Microsoft can check and see if there's anything worth filing patents on.
