Microsoft’s OneNote app let you to place all your notes in one place and it is the digital notebook for your to-do lists, meeting notes, important lectures and anything which you want to organize or remember. Today OneNote app updated for the Android device , which offers tablet users full and native experience for the first time along with some other features.


Microsoft has stated that,

[quote]The new tablet navigation feature allows you to scan through your notebooks and sections so that you can change it to the notes very quickly. In addition to the tablet support, this update now includes handwritten support with which it can be accessed through the stylus or finger. Your notes will sync across all your devices and helps you to access them easily and stay organized from anywhere.[/quote]

Microsoft developers have been working to add the handwriting support to OneNote Android app. This feature has appeared in the beta release last month and it allows the users to add the notes in more convenient ways than typing. Writers can use their finger tips or stylus to tweak their notes with number of options. Handwriting support is very good to see but works well on larger devices.

As handwriting support will work better on larger devices, Microsoft has made use of this opportunity to roll out the tablet friendly UI to OneNote where we can see the efficient use of the sidebar which shows the open notebook, section and page-on screen at once.
