Microsof company on Monday quietly released an iPad-specific model of Office OneNote, the note-taking program in Microsoft's Office suite. At CES a year ago, Microsoft's OneNote team admitted that few people were using OneNote although it had been part of Office for your better part of a decade. As a possible application class that lent itself effectively to mobile use (evinced by Evernote) its utility over a PC was less than obvious.
Nonetheless, Microsoft's admission that OneNote wasn't popular served as a prelude to any high-visibility move onto Apple's popular easily transportable devices. Just two weeks later, OneNote for iPhone premiered.
Now with an iPad-optimized version offered to users, OneNote's presence on iOS will be complete.
This release comes on the heels of your fresh rumor that Microsoft is in fact porting its entire Office suite for the iPad alongside an updated version regarding OS X Lion. But even if Office isn't bound for your iPad any time soon, OneNote is ideally fitted to mobile use and presents a big-name substitute for dominant mobile note-taking app Evernote.
