Microsoft tweaks OneNote to make it an even stronger cross-platform business tool

Tony Bradley | July 2, 2013
Microsoft has enhanced OneNote across the board, and rolled out updated iPhone, iPad, and Android apps to make it a more powerful tool for business users

Even better, OneNote now allows for collaboration in real-time. You can work with peers, customers, vendors, or others in the same note at the same time. Everyone can see everyone else's changes in real-time so you can use OneNote as a brainstorming and organizational tool with a group.

Lastly, Microsoft is removing the 500-note limit previously placed on the mobile apps. I have a feeling that limit only affected a very small percentage of OneNote users, so removing the arbitrary cap may be more of a PR move than anything else. Nevertheless, it is freeing to know there is no maximum number of notes to worry about.

The updated apps are available today in the United States and select international markets. If you're outside of the US, check your Apple App Store or Google Play to find out if you get to take advantage of the new and improved OneNote.
