Microsoft has released OneNote Mobile for iPhone 1.2, an updated version of its note taking application for Apple's smartphone, now available outside the US for the first time.
OneNote Mobile was launched in the US in January, but this update is now extending access to the UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
It will be available free from the iTunes app store for a limited period, according to Microsoft.
OneNote Mobile 1.2 introduces new search, sharing and customisation capabilities that customers have been asking for, the company said.
These include the option to synchronise notebooks with those stored on a SkyDrive account, including those shared with other users, and a Search tool to quickly find information within text in notebooks.
Users will also be able to keep their favourite notes at the top of their Recently Viewed list, and now have the option to set the image size for photos.
Microsoft said that the announcement demonstrates the company's continued commitment to creating innovative products across a range of platforms.
However, it raises the question of whether Microsoft intends to release iPhone versions of the other applications in its mobile suite, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint, which are all built into Windows Phone handsets.
In response to queries from V3, the company said that it has a multi-platform strategy for Office, and that its go-to-market timeline differs for each platform.
"We have nothing to announce at present, but there are Web Apps of Microsoft Office that can be accessed from the iPhone," a Microsoft spokesperson said.
