OneNote gets new look, better syncing and collaboration on iOS and Android

Summary:The new version of Microsoft OneNote for iPad, iPhone and Android devices is available, with a new uniform UI and collaboration and syncing options.

Microsoft has revamped the interface on its OneNote note-taking app for iPad, iPhone, and Android.

The new version of the app, released yesterday, introduces a uniform UI for formatting text and layouts across each version, providing access to rich formatting features, hyperlinks, and note tags across all versions.

The familiar Office Ribbon UI, which allows users to reconfigure the UI to carry out different tasks by selecting tabs, is another addition.

OneNote notes can now stay in sync with Office 365 and SharePoint, and multiple people will now be able to edit a OneNote document at the same time and see other peoples' change simultaneously.

The 500-note limit previously placed on the mobile apps has also been lifted.

The upgraded apps are available free, and available through OneNote for iPad or OneNote for iPhone from the Apple App Store and OneNote for Android on Google Play.

Desktop versions of OneNote already exist on Windows 8.1 (both the Intel- and ARM-based variants), but no native version currently exists for Mac OS X.
