onenoteMicrosoft today updated its OneNote app for the iPad to version 2.1, allowing users to create new notebooks within SkyDrive for the first time. In-app notebook creation means OneNote for iPad can now be used as a standalone product without the need for a PC connection.

Previously, users were not able to create new notebooks within the app, meaning that a desktop or web version of OneNote was necessary. Now users can add, rename, and delete their notes directly on the iPad. Unfortunately, while the iPhone version of OneNote did receive an update to decrease the size of the app, it did not receive the same standalone functionality.

In addition to the ability to create notebooks, the iPad version of OneNote has also received improved Japanese typing responsiveness, automatic list detection, and bug fixes.

- Create new notebooks within SkyDrive
- Create, rename or delete sections
- Improved Japanese typing responsiveness
- Automatic list detection
- Bug fixes

OneNote is available for free for the iPhone or iPad. [Direct Links: iPhone/iPad]

The success of Windows was just an industrial fluke. What else has Bill Gates ever done? He stole the idea from Xerox (admittedly along with Jobs et al), and made billions off of that one product -- but what else did he ever do besides try to pose as a UN eugenicist?

Stole idea after idea, stepped on multiple heads on his way to the top, created a nearly unbreakable monopoly, and nearly hobbled the computer industry with their crappy software and horrible bsuiness tactics. Now he's killing starving kids in Africa using "vaccines" in an attempt to solidify the white Anglo-European power base.

OR

Created a company that capitalized on multiple ideas across the industry, was responsible for making the computer revolution a truly widespread success, created a platform that became the go-to standard for nearly 15 years, and fostered MS from a poor startup to one of the richest companies of the past 50 years (only Apple has recently surpassed them on that front). Now he's responsible for organizing and spending billions on various charities across the world.

Pick whichever answer you like best.

Microsoft is so lame. Even the name micro + soft has always made me think bad thoughts about certain things belonging to Bill Gates.

Well done. This post makes you a serious contender for MR troll of the year. It has bias, petty insults and ad-hoc misguided opinions being presented as facts all in one post.

have you ever worked a real job in your life?

someone who is able to 'steal' an idea and commercialize it, earning $50 billion along the way is definitely not someone riding on a 'fluke'.
The android model of adoption that eclipsed iOS despite its almost 2 year long lead?
Bill Gates' Microsoft's. Did the same on the Macintosh.

Pose as a UN eugenicist? What the hell have you done in your life that mirrors even an ounce of his initiative?


Oh and by the way, Bill Gates was way better an engineer than Jobs - so he's not without inherent skills. And Microsoft is lame? You know the Time Coalescing feature on Mavericks that everyone got hard on? Windows 7's.

You are naive.

Bill Gates can't even grow a mustache, so that's even more proof that Microsoft was a fluke. The Surface is garbage as well, hence why Microlost had to slash the price in half and Steve Balmer is now retiring.

I'm a big fan of One Note but I also own a Surface Pro.
I would use it much more on the Ipad if I could take notes with a stylus.
Not sure why they won't add that feature.
