British iPhone owners can now get their hands on Microsoft's OneNote app, with the release of the 1.2 update to the note-taking software.

On Tuesday, Microsoft pushed out OneNote Mobile 1.2 for iPhone, which brings new search, synchronisation and sharing features. At the same time, the company said it is rolling out the app in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, six months after launching it in the US.

The iOS version of the OneNote note-taking software has similar features to the original Windows Phone 7 app. People can write notes on the handset, synchronise them to Windows Live SkyDrive cloud storage, then pick up the work on a PC or mobile device.

The OneNote Mobile for iPhone update now allows people to search notebooks, sections and pages, and to 'pin' notes to the top of their Recently Viewed list. They can now also sync notebooks shared by others on SkyDrive and select which notebooks they want to have on their iPhone.

The app is available now for free download from the iTunes store.
