Microsoft has released OneNote Mobile for Android, a version of its note-taking Office application for smartphones, adding to the versions already available for Apple's iPad and iPhone plus Microsoft's own Windows Phone platform.
Available to download from the Android Market app store, OneNote Mobile for Android allows for free-form capture of notes, drawings and ideas using an Android device while on-the-move.
While the iOS version of OneNote works on both iPad and iPhone, Microsoft stated that OneNote Mobile for Android is optimised only for smartphone displays and has not been tested on tablets.
As with other mobile versions of OneNote, content can be synchronised to a Microsoft SkyDrive account, enabling users to access their notes and ideas from other copies of OneNote, including a desktop PC or another phone.
Features in OneNote Mobile for Android include quick photo capture with the phone's camera, built-in spelling checker, the option to sync notebooks only when using a Wi-Fi connection, table editing, and to-do lists with clickable checkboxes.
OneNote Mobile for Android is free to download and use, but only up to a limit of 500 notes. After this, users must pay a one-off fee of £2.99 to continue using the application, but this covers unlimited use, Microsoft said.
Those who choose not to upgrade will still be able to view their notes, but not edit them or create new ones.
Microsoft announced availability of the product on its OneNote blog. The app is available in versions for various territories, including the UK.
