Microsoft Updates OneNote App for iPhone and Mac

The latest update for iPhones enables users to create new notebooks and sections from an iPhone and share them. Earlier users could only read the documents and not create them. Now they can also add, delete and rename sections. The updated version adds support for Office Lens, which allows users take pictures of objects that have text then like a whiteboard, and then search through the text through the app. Also, all images are synced, and if the picture includes printed text the app recognizes it with optical character recognition. Owing to this feature the users can search for specific words or phrases in the images.

Most importantly Microsoft says that they have “dramatically improved” the look and feel of OneNote on iOS 7, making note taking and navigation of notes “much more fluid and efficient.”

Microsoft has updated OneNote for Mac that was first launched last month. It has also received quite a few features: drag and drop images, printing support, format painter, hyperlink names, and copy and paste formatted content. Best feature is that you can now save the page as a PDF file through the Print dialog as well.

Users can now download the OneNote for iPhone from App Store and OneNote for Mac from Mac Store easily.
