Microsoft today released a major update for OneNote app for iPhone devices. The app design has been completely revamped to match the iOS 7 design principles, and it looks great. Microsoft has also added support for Office Lens which allows you to scan documents, whiteboards to your OneNote. Also, they have now added the ability to create new notebooks and sections from iPhone. Apart from this, they have also made some great performance improvements to the app.
- This update untethers OneNote for iPhone from the desktop with the ability to create new notebooks and sections. This means that you can now create a new notebook, share it with others, and get on the same page–all from the convenience of an iPhone.
- We’ve built Office Lens into OneNote for iPhone. Similar to Office Lens on OneNote for iPad, this popular feature turns your iPhone into a pocket scanner so you can use it to take pictures of things like receipts or whiteboard notes. Then, with Office Lens you can trim, enhance and make pictures more readable. Best thing is, images are automatically synced to OneNote, and if your picture includes printed text, OneNote can recognize the text with optical character recognition (OCR) so you can search for words in the image.
- We’ve dramatically improved the look and feel of OneNote on iOS 7, making note taking and navigation of your notes much more fluid and efficient.
