If you've been using OneNote on your iPhone for a while, you already know how useful it is for keeping tabs on all of your busy life's tasks, commitments, ideas, and decisions. OneNote mobile apps are fantastic companions to the full OneNote experience.
Today, just in time for the holidays, we’re releasing OneNote 1.3 for iOS. Since the launch of OneNote for iPhone nearly a year ago, a recurring request from our customers has been for a version that can be used more easily on the iPad's larger screen. We're happy to announce that today's new release of OneNote for iOS devices includes a version that's tailored for the iPad.
OneNote is now available in full resolution on the iPad.
Whether you need to track and share shopping lists, gift-giving plans, recipe clippings and collections, or event and travel planning, you'll never forget or miss a thing with OneNote by your side.
OneNote for iOS builds on previous releases with the following new features in version 1.3:
By storing your OneNote notebooks on a free Microsoft SkyDrive account, your notes are no longer trapped on your computer's hard drive. Your own cloud-based SkyDrive account lets you easily sync all of your notebooks across all of your devices, so they're always up-to-date and accessible from virtually anywhere — on your iPhone, your iPad, your Web browser, or your computer.
For example, you can plan your meals on your laptop and then check your grocery lists on your iPhone when you're in the store. You can go through your to-do lists while sitting on the couch with your iPad, and then plan the work day when you're back at the computer on your desk. No matter where or when you use OneNote, it helps you keep your life together — all in one place.
And if you give your friends or family access to your shared notebooks, everyone in your life can contribute to the information you capture, collect, track, keep, share, and care about.
OneNote 1.3 works on the following iOS devices:
Note: Your device must be running Apple iOS 4.3 or later. A free Windows Live account is required for notebook storage in the cloud via Microsoft SkyDrive. You can use any existing Windows Live account to sign in, or you can sign up for free with just a few easy steps when you first start OneNote on your iPhone or iPad.
OneNote 1.3 is free to download and use for up to 500 notes (the total of newly or previously created notes). To track your usage, tap the Settings button in the app and then tap the Upgrade button.
When you've reached the limit, you can upgrade OneNote 1.3 as follows:
For pricing outside of the United States, please visit the iTunes App Store in your region (see the section below for a complete list of newly supported countries and markets).
If you choose not to upgrade to the unlimited version, you can still view, sync, and delete any of your existing notes even after you've reached the 500 notes limit. However, you will no longer be able to edit your notes or create new ones on your iPhone or iPad.
Starting today, we are making OneNote for iOS available worldwide in the following markets:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niger, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
To find and download the appropriate version of OneNote 1.3 for your device and country, either search for "Microsoft OneNote" in the iTunes App Store that's installed on your iPhone or iPad, or download iTunes to your computer by visiting http://www.itunes.com.
OneNote for iOS is supported free of charge in the official OneNote forums on Microsoft Answers. You can also reach this site by tapping the Settings button in the app and then tapping Help and Support.
A huge thanks to all of you who have tried out the original OneNote for iPhone app during the past year and provided valuable feedback. We hope you'll enjoy this exciting new mobile version of OneNote.
As always, please keep your feedback coming — either in the Comments section below, in the OneNote Support forums, or in the app feedback section in the iTunes App Store.

Please release a OneNote version for Android
You have it on on iOS so why not Android
Nice to know new releases are happening! But please think about SharePoint/Office 365 shared notebooks next time.
Android no no because developing android sucks.. (in my opinion of course)
Though OneNote should be more themed like the bing ipad app, metroish =)
Why it's not available in Slovakia?
We have tested it today but it appear that you can only sync text made by a keyboard on Windows as well on the Ipad, handwritten text will only sync as the text: [Ink]. Because handwritten text is very usefull on a Ipad, I think the Onenote app is really not useable for syncing your notes between a windows based environment and an IOS based environment. And therefor i do not reccomend this app.
This app seems to license differently than most iOS apps.
How does the licensing work with multiple devices? Will the iPad license work with an iPhone? If I have more than one iPad is it an unlock key for each device or each iTunes account?
I often use English and Chinese?
I was looking forward to this, but am less than impressed. I was looking to use some of the many templates out there... Well, trying to work out how to do that was an exercise. Tried copying .one files across to the ipad - no joy. So I go up to my hotmail/live account, and upload some .one files to there. Still no joy. (and it's not clear what directory to put files in, btw).
Finally, I work it out, it would appear that the templates/files wuld need to be onenote 2010 compatible. Of course, 99% of the templates available on the net, are 2003 or 2007. So I thought, no problem, I will migrate them with the webapp onenote on skydrive... bzzzttt. doesn't read the older formats. So... Microsoft - can you update your template repository to current versions, or fix webapp, or fix ipad app, or something.
Mark, have you tried MobileNoter? It allows to view and create OneNote handwritings right on the iPad.
I am disappointed that users cannot connect to Office 365. Why would MS neglect such a large group of users that have access to the OneNote webapp and are paying monthly subscription fees and instead focus on the free online skydrive, it seems that someone is missing the boat on this one.
I would like to be able to add hand drawn notes on the ipad.
Any plans for OneNote iPad integration with SharePoint?
So, is anyone from Onenote engineering looking at this, or are we talking to ourselves...
@Oliver Garraux, @Dominic Brien, @Pratik Patel, @dazza_1983: Thanks very much for your positive and encouraging comments. The OneNote team has worked hard to create and release this newest version of OneNote and we really appreciate your support and positive feedback. Thanks for taking the time.
@jakeondemand, @Dominic Brien, Driver_King, @Sean Worthington, @Anonymous: I will pass along your request for SharePoint and Office 365 support to the product team. I think these are great suggestions -- thank you!
@oomatter, @Vortex, @Glenn Stephens, @motch_master, @The Guru: We are aware that there is a lot of interest in a OneNote app for Android, but we don't have any news to share on that front at this time. If that changes, you'll read about it right here on the OneNote Blog. Thanks for your interest and your feedback.
@ancient_hacker: We've worked hard to bring the app to 22 languages and 59 markets around the world, and we don't have any news about any additional markets at this time. I understand that it's disappointing when your language or country is not on the list and I have forwarded your request to the product team. If OneNote for iOS will be released in additional countries in the future, we'll be sure to post about it here on the OneNote Blog. Thank you for your interest in the app.
@Chad Conrow: Pricing is separate per app, per device, but I'm not sure what happens if you use the same iTunes account for multiple iPads. I've forwarded your question to the product team and will share any details about that as soon as I've heard back. Thanks for the question.
@Denny Prijadi: The usage counter does not go down if you delete notes again. Every note that's created with the app is counted towards the 500 notes limit. Thanks for your question.
@Phil Jay: I quite like the Bing app on the iPad as well!
@Mark De Haan: Sorry the app doesn't meet your needs, but thanks for giving it a try!
@Glyn Davies, @Igal Schneider: We’re aware that there is interest in a Mac version of OneNote, but we don't have any news to share on that front. If that changes, you'll read about it right here on the OneNote Blog. Thanks for your interest and your feedback.
@Joseph Grabowski: Thanks for your feedback. I’ll pass your request on to the product team.
@Maxime Naman: Thanks for the suggestion. It’s an interesting idea!
@pquodling: Thanks for your feedback. I’ll pass your request on to the Office.com templates team.
@Oliver Garraux, @Tom Bedard: That’s among my own feature requests as well. I’ll pass your requests on to the product team. Thanks for your feedback.
@hao MaKere: OneNote for iPhone and iPad are both available in English and Chinese. If your question is about cost, each app fee is separate for the version or language that you want to use.
I use OneNote on my laptop alot and I use my Ipad for work as well. So I was excited to OneNote for Ipad. However, for data security for work I am prohibited from using external Clouds so cannot sync using Skydrive. I imagine Microsoft is missing alot of Corporate uses because there is not an option to synch directly with laptop/desktop and Ipad. I would easily pay for the unlimited version if this feature existed.
