Microsoft OneNote Mobile Hits the Android Market

Microsoft OneNote is part of the Office suite many professionals use on a daily basis. OneNote lets you create, store and share ideas or information in a single, easy-to-access location. According to the OneNote blog, it seems as though you fellow Android users have been begging to use this on your phones and tablets. Now you can while on the go from any of your Android devices.

Assuming you are already using OneNote, you’ll have full access to all that information wherever you are. Using your free Microsoft Skydrive account you can sync your “notes” to the cloud and easily share them with anyone.

Feature summary

OneNote Mobile for Android includes the following features:

  • Text formatting, images, and bulleted lists

There is a caveat in all this “free” stuff from Microsoft.. Would you expect anything else? They are going to let you have up to 500 notes on your Android mobile application for free. After the 500 are used up, you will need to fork over a one time $4.99 to unlock the application for unlimited use. They claim you will not be able to edit or create anything past the 500 notes without upgrading, but will allow you to view, sync and delete them.
