A Note-Taking App for the iPhone Gets an Upgrade

In my office, OneNote is a ubiquitous sight; everyone uses it to take notes in meetings, track projects, and even submit regular status reports to their managers. If you are equally OneNote addicted, then you might have nabbed a copy of OneNote for the iPhone when I told you about it earlier this year. If you don't have it yet, there's good news: It has been significantly upgraded. And it's still free (for now).

The latest version of OneNote for the iPhone adds some important new features. Most importantly, the program now has a full text search tool that finds your words and phrases anywhere in your OneNote books, sections, and pages. That means your phone's version of OneNote works about the same as the one on your laptop.

You can also pin frequently used pages to the top of the Recently Viewed list, making it easier to get to stuff you use often. And you can sync shared notebooks. This is a great addition, which lets you stay in sync with an entire team of people who are updating a OneNote book that's stored on SkyDrive.

There are a few other goodies, including a softer color scheme that's easier on the eyes, but these updates make OneNote an even more essential tool for any manager. Get it now -- while it's still free.
