Taking OneNote to the next level: everywhere, anywhere

Microsoft has just announced a series of new exciting features for its free-form, notes-gathering program, OneNote.

This latest round of changes makes it even more worthy of attention, with a true cross-platform, cloud-ready program that can keep notes in sync across multiple devices, accessible any time, everywhere.

Here is a list of what Microsoft announced today:


  • OneNote is now free. Yes, that’s right: you can now use OneNote on any platform for free.
  • OneNote now provides a Cloud API, so any web application can connect to it, creating the possibilities of new services. Already we can see there are applications using this feature, such as Feedly, News360, Weave and IFTTT.


  • Office Lens, a new app for Windows Phone that allows you to take a picture of a document or whiteboard and have that automatically sent to your OneNote default notebook.

  • Email your notes into OneNote by sending an email from your authenticated account to me@onenote.com.
