Microsoft previously released it’s popular note-taking app, href=”http://office.microsoft.com/onenote/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Microsoft OneNote”>OneNote, for the iPad, iPhone, and, of course, Windows Phone. Starting on Tuesday, the app is now available on Android. Microsoft OneNote is one of many note taking apps for Android, the key benefit here is Microsoft is looking at users who are already using the desktop software, allowing them to sync and take their notes with them on-the-go using href=”http://explore.live.com/windows-live-skydrive” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”SkyDrive”>SkyDrive.

The app also includes the following features:


  • Text formatting, images, and bulleted lists
  • To-do lists with clickable checkboxes
  • Quick photo capture with your phone’s camera
  • Quick access to recent notes
  • Store and access multiple OneNote notebooks
  • Sync to your free SkyDrive account for access anywhere
  • Offline access to your notes
  • Option to sync notebooks only over a Wi-Fi connection
  • Built-in spelling checker
  • Support for external hyperlinks
  • Table editing

The biggest drawback to the Android version is that it’s formatted for the phone. Though it would be perfect for a larger screen, the tablet app is not available yet and there’s no indication that Microsoft is readying one. If it’s still useful to you on the phone, you can grab the free OneNote for Android from the Android Market.
