Microsoft made available on September 6 an update (version 2.1) to its OneNote app for iPhone and iPad.
The biggest new feature of the update is that now OneNote on the iPad is "untethered" from Windows PCs. That means users can create notebooks directly on the iPad and create, delete and rename sections right on the iPad, too. (Before users could do this on the iPad directly, but only in the OneNote Web App version of the application, not the native iOS one.)
Other new features in the OneNote update, according to Microsoft, include:
iPad support for creating new OneNote notebooks in SkyDrive
iPhone and iPad Japanese typing improvements that addresses previously slow responsiveness
Reduced OneNote download size for iPhone by more than half
iPhone and iPad support for automatic list detection
Bug fixes for iPhone and iPad
Those with OneNote already installed on their iOS devices can get the latest updates via the Updates tab in the App Store. New users can download OneNote for iPad or OneNote for iPhone from the App Store for free.
