Microsoft OneNote is Now Free for Everyone on Every Device

Microsoft’s cloud-based note taking software, OneNote, is now free in all formats. The company also released a public API, so many apps can also use the software to sync data and notes from practically anything. One Note is also programmed to be connected to Brother, Doxie Go, Epson, Feedly, Genius Scan, IFTTT, JotNot, Livescribe, Mod Notebook, News360 and Weave, to name a few. You can see the complete list of partner apps and devices here.

Here is a sampling of some of the software’s features:

OneNote Clipper: The new OneNote Clipper lets you capture any web page in one click. The page is automatically put in your OneNote Quick Notes. It is available for Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Mac Safari.

Send email to OneNote: Send a mail to me@onenote.com and we’ll save it into your OneNote Quick Notes. Forward a receipt from your inbox or send a web link from your phone tome@onenote.com.

Office Lens: Office Lens is a Windows Phone app that’s like having a scanner in your pocket. Take a picture of a whiteboard, document, business card, or anything. Office Lens will enhance the image and put it into your OneNote Quick Notes. We’ll recognize the text so you can search for your scans.
