It is surprising that it took so long for Microsoft to launch the OneNote on OS X. The OneNote has been allegedly a great tool to organize and take notes and has been here since a decade.
Before being a part of Apple’s office array of products, it was found on Android and iOS. The new version of the OneNote now available on the App store can be purchased for free, along with its Windows edition which can also be downloaded for free. The version designed for Windows 8 is one that has been free of cost; however the 2013 version has to be paid for if it’s a part of the Office suite. This version is inclusive of a number of features, such as the SharePoint support which are not a part of the regular, free of cost version.
After having made the OneNote free, Microsoft is also increasing the number of feature included on the OneNote. The API is one such feature which allows software engineers to include their own work alongside the service. In order to demonstrate it, Redmond displayed web clippers for Chrome, Safari, IE and Firefox. Other ventures such as IFTTT, Feedly and Genius Scan have also allowed for OneNote to be saved from their apps, which implies that others will also follow their lead.
The Office Lens has also been launched which is an app featured on the Windows Phone which has the ability to convert one’s smartphone camera to a scanner. Google Drive and Evernote too are displaying features which capture pictures of documents and handwritten notes. The Office Lens has caused the OCR to be integrated into those apps belonging to Microsoft. This has rekindled Microsoft’s place as a competitive advocate of new technologies, continually showing improvement and progression.
