Microsoft OneNote App Hits iOS

Microsoft has released a mobile version of its Office OneNote app for Apple's iOS platform.

Like the desktop version, the OneNote mobile app for iOS allows users to keep notes of thoughts, ideas, important appointments and to-do lists. The company said that the notes made on OneNote are automatically synced to a user's SkyDrive account for universal access.

With 78 million PCs already running OneNote in the US, it would seem to make sense for Microsoft to push out a complimentary mobile app that allows users to take notes on the go.

Microsoft's Michael C. Oldenburg wrote in a blog post: “While the OneNote Mobile app naturally doesn't have all of the functionality of the full OneNote 2010 desktop application for your computer, it's optimised for your iPhone's display and lets you handle the basics with ease.”

The app is compatible with iPhone or iPod touch devices running iOS 4.2 or later and is available for free for a limited period of time.
