Today, just in time for the holidays, we’re releasing OneNote 1.3 for iOS. Since the launch of OneNote for iPhone nearly a year ago, a recurring request from our customers has been for a version that can be used more easily on the iPad's larger screen. We're happy to announce that today's new release of OneNote for iOS devices includes a version that's tailored for the iPad.

What’s new in this version

OneNote for iOS builds on previous releases with the following new features in version 1.3:

  • Support for iPad and iPad 2
  • Localization into several new languages and markets
  • Tabbed user interface
  • Quick note creation in the Unfiled Notes section
  • Table rendering
  • Improved Windows Live sign-in experience
  • Integrated upgrade option
Easy access — anywhere, any time

By storing your OneNote notebooks on a free Microsoft SkyDrive account, your notes are no longer trapped on your computer's hard drive. Your own cloud-based SkyDrive account lets you easily sync all of your notebooks across all of your devices, so they're always up-to-date and accessible from virtually anywhere — on your iPhone, your iPad, your Web browser, or your computer.

For example, you can plan your meals on your laptop and then check your grocery lists on your iPhone when you're in the store. You can go through your to-do lists while sitting on the couch with your iPad, and then plan the work day when you're back at the computer on your desk. No matter where or when you use OneNote, it helps you keep your life together — all in one place.

And if you give your friends or family access to your shared notebooks, everyone in your life can contribute to the information you capture, collect, track, keep, share, and care about.
