As expected, Microsoft has today announced the release of its OneNote app for Mac as a free download. While the company decided to release iOS and Android versions of OneNote a while back, the full desktop version was available only as a paid app for Office on Windows. Starting today, both Windows and Mac versions of OneNote app are free, though premium features like SharePoint support and Outlook integration are still paid.
“We’ve seen the countless requests for a Mac client of OneNote, and we’ve been hard at work to deliver it. We’ve been counting the days to finally share with you that OneNote for Mac is now available and you can download it from the app store for free today!
OneNote is your place to jot down your ideas, capture your collection of web clippings and research, plan your trips and events, check your to-dos and shopping lists and share your notes with friends and co-workers.
With today’s OneNote for Mac release, Microsoft has also added a bunch of new features to the app, nost notably the launch of an API that allows developers to integrate their own creations with the service. As a demonstration of its most basic functionality, the company has also launched a collection of web clipper extensions for IE, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
Notes created on OneNote for Mac are also synced to OneDrive and are available across all Windows desktop, Windows Phone, iOS and Android devices.
