Microsoft updates OneNote for iOS with more consistent syncing, iPhone 5 display supportMicrosoft on Monday rolled out OneNote version 2.0, bringing some much needed changes to the note-taking and managaments app, including a consistent experience across multiple platforms and enhanced rich text formatting.
The latest OneNote fixes several issues that users were seeing when attempting to sync data via Microsoft's SkyDrive cloud computing service, one of the major features of the app created to work on Windows Phone, iOS and Android devices.
In addition, with version 2.0, Microsoft has improved rich text formatting and "Ink annotations" viewing for iOS devices. Tables can also be inserted into files, and users can now edit existing tables created on another device.
Finally, the app has been optimized to take advantage of the 4-inch Retina display found on Apple's iPhone 5.
OneNote for iOS is free to download from the App Store, and the 500-note limit imposed on older versions of the software has been lifted. Microsoft cautions existing users to back up their data before upgrading to the latest version.
