Microsoft today announced some new changes coming to the OneNote app for iPhone and iPad. The company is merging both of the apps, and they’re no longer separate apps. For those who don’t know, previously, both of the apps had “for iPhone” or “for iPad” – and they’re two different apps optimized for the iPhone and iPad respectively. With the latest update, the app is now a “universal iOS” app, meaning that it’ll work seamlessly on any device.
Alongside the new universal app, Microsoft is also introducing a couple of new features – especially for the iPad. Although the company calls it a “universal” app, the latest features doesn’t seem to be available on an iPhone. Nonetheless, the latest update includes a couple of new goodies.
With the latest update, users will be able to add a widget to the Today section on the notification center which will allow you to create new notes, start a list, and access your most recent notes with one tap from the Notification Center. Alongside this, Microsoft is also adding a new Recent Notes page where users can see their most recent notes. Microsoft is also adding page previews for the iPad. If you turn your iPad into the landscape mode, you’ll be able to see the page previews on the sidebar. It’s worth noting that the latest update also fixes a bug with the Document/Whiteboard camera feature.
OneNote for iOS is now live on the App Store, and it’s available for free. If you own an iPhone or iPad, head over to the App Store to grab the app.
