OneNote iOS8 app

Microsoft today updated the OneNote app for iOS devices with couple of new features. Handwriting is now supported in this app and it will be automatically searchable. Also, it is now easier to duplicate pages.

What’s New in Version 2.12:

• Searchable Handwriting – Handwriting in OneNote is awesome for taking notes, sketching out ideas, and brainstorming for your next project. Now, we’ve made all your handwritten content automatically searchable. Sheets of paper never felt so behind the times.
• Duplicate Pages – We’ve made it easy to duplicate a page, perfect for when you want to make a change to a page but not lose your existing content.
• Bug fixes

Handwritten notes saved to OneDrive are processed and searchable within two to five minutes and any pre-existing handwritten notes in your OneNote notebooks stored on OneDrive will be processed and searchable in the coming weeks. In addition, OneNote’s handwriting recognition works in 25 languages. We will expand language support and recognition accuracy, so stay tuned for future improvements. It works in Windows and Android tablets too.

Recently, an update to OneNote for iPad that introduced a new and improved way to organize your notebooks. Similar to the OneNote for iPhone experience, you can now easily swipe from the left to view the drawer where you can view all your notebooks, open or create notebooks, reorder and close notebooks. Additionally, you can now more easily access and manage your accounts and app settings in this all-new user interface.

Download the update from App Store.
