OneNote for iOS gets 3D Touch support


With the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, Apple introduced a new feature called 3D touch which allows users to use some “quick actions” just by force touching the app. Many iOS app developers, including Microsoft started adding support for 3D Touch’s Quick Actions recently. Today, Microsoft rolled out a new update for the official OneNote app for iOS which introduces support for 3D touch and some other new features. Here’s what’s new:

  • iPhone 6s/6s Plus – It’s a touch-fecta! Touch forcefully on the OneNote icon to quickly create a new note or pop into Recent Notes.
  • iPad – Draw with confidence with the new “Convert to Shapes” mode: we’ll automatically convert hand drawn shapes into crisp, perfectly regular polygons and circles.
  • iPad – While drawing, line thickness is proportional to your stroke’s speed. Go faster and the line gets thinner; draw steadily and the line gets thicker.
  • iPad – We’ve improved the drawing palette: the perfect shade for your masterpiece is now just a tap and a swipe away.

The latest version of the OneNote for iOS app is 2.18, and you can grab it for free from the App Store here.
