Microsoft Brings OneNote to the Mac (Updated)

Posted by at 11:29 am on March 17, 2014

Microsoft has launched a free Mac version of OneNote at the Mac App Store. The software stores notes, lists, receipts, and other data. Most significantly it syncs the data across multiple platforms, including Windows, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and the web.

Microsoft is in fact making free versions of OneNote available across all platforms, although people wanting advanced features like SharePoint support and Outlook integration will still have to pay. The Mac app is listed as just “free for a limited time,” though its unknown when that period will end.

Update:  After speaking with Microsoft PR – OneNote app will be free moving forward, however, some premium features will only be available to paid customers.

In parallel with the new apps, developers now have access to a cloud API which enables OneNote clipping and sharing. Microsoft’s own Clipper can be installed in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. Other platform changes include the ability to add notes and links via email, and the introduction of Office Lens for Windows Phone, which can automatically scan text from documents into OneNote. Printer makers Brother and Epson have embedded OneNote support into some devices; smartpen company Livescribe has likewise added support.
