Microsoft today released an update to its OneNote application for iOS that it said has been tweaked for the iPad. OneNote is the only Office application Microsoft has ported to iOS. The company shipped an iPhone edition of the note-taking and project management program in January 2011.

With the release Monday of OneNote 1.3, Microsoft said that the app now runs on an iPad in "full resolution" rather than as a blown-up iPhone app. According to a blog post by Michael Oldenburg, a technical writer in the Office group, the update works on both the original iPad and on the iPad 2.

"Since the launch of OneNote for iPhone nearly a year ago, a recurring request from our customers has been a version that can be used more easily on the iPad's larger screen," said Oldenburg.

Version 1.3 also includes several new features, including the option to synchronize OneNote "notebooks" via Wi-Fi, a tabbed interface design, and rendering of tables. Users can sync their OneNote notebooks to multiple devices -- including iPhone, iPad, and their Windows PCs -- using Microsoft's free SkyDrive storage and sync service, Oldenburg added.

OneNote 1.3 is a free download, but caps the user's notes at 500, a number that includes both existing or newly-created notes. To exceed that limit, U.S. users must pay US$4.99 for unlimited use on an iPhone, or US$14.99 for an unlimited number of notes on an iPad. Prices for users in other countries are posted on their versions of Apple's App Store.

Microsoft has announced that they are making it easier for note-taking app Evernote users to move to its own OneNote. They claim that Evernote fans acknowledged OneNote’s appeal but were hesitant to make the switch due to the fact that all their ideas and information reside in Evernote.

In an effort to remove that barrier, Microsoft has announced a tool that will import Evernote notes into OneNote. The OneNote Importer too will be available for Windows initially and will migrate all of a user’s Evernote content into OneNote. The Importer tool for Mac will should be available soon, says the company.

In terms of advantages, Microsoft says OneNote offers a free-form canvas where users can mix text, images, documents, handwriting, audio and video. It offers free online access and unlimited monthly uploads.

OneNote is free on all devices and comes with Office and works with Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The company adds that Evernote Premium which comes at more than 70 percent of the cost of Office 365 Personal, which includes 1 TB of storage too.

To migrate notes from Evernote, a user needs a PC with Windows 7 or later. Once the Evernote notes are imported, they’ll sync across all devices – Mac, iOS and Android included. To speed up the migration process, Microsoft recommends that users have Evernote for Windows install. Users can then sign in and make sure their latest notes are synced before importing.
