Microsoft Updates OneNote and Skype Apps

by Reads (287)

Microsoft has updated its OneNote app for iPhone, iPad, and Android, which includes rich text editing, a consistent user experience across devices, and better sharing functions.


Text formatting in the OneNote app will be the same for each device, and will now include support for hyperlinks and tags, making it easier to create and share documents. Users will be able to sync their OneNote files with an Office 365 or Sharepoint account, in addition to a SkyDrive account. Editing is now updated in live time, so more than one user can make edits at the same time.  The apps are free and there is no limit on how many notes a user can create, something that was not true of the previous releases. Apps are available from the OneNote website, the Apple App Store, and Google Play.


Skype for Android has also been completely revamped, with a newly-designed, easier-to-use, and faster interface. It will now list recent conversations upon launching the app, and by swiping to the contacts and favorites menu, users can quickly open other conversations. Microsoft has stated that the app has been completely rebuilt, with a focus on stability, performance, and speed.  The update is currently available for Android users.
