Microsoft OneNote lets you scribble notes, create checklists, add audio or video notes, and sync your notes across a range of devices. OneNote used to be bundled with Microsoft Office but over the past few years it’s taken on a life of its own — especially on mobile devices including phones and tablets.

Now Microsoft has launched an update to its Android app with support for handwriting recognition and a new user interface optimized for tablets.

The Windows app has also been updated to support printing and more.

  • Microsoft releases free OneNote app for Android tablets with handwriting support
    You can use a digital pen if you’ve got one, or a fingertip. You can annotate documents with scribbled notes or create entirely handwritten notes which will synchronize across your devices. [Office Blogs]
  • Google’s Photo Sphere camera app now available for iOS
    Panoramic photos are so old school. Android users have been able to shoot 360 degree globe-like photos for years. Now Google is bringing this feature to iPhone users. [iTunes]
  • Looks like Omate has another (cheaper) smartwatch on the way
    Expected to sell for $129, this model won’t run full-blown Android apps like the original Omate TrueSmart. But it’ll display notifications from your phone on your wrist for cheaper than a Pebble smartwatch. [Engadget]
  • Elephone P1000 is a Chinese phone with a 2K screen, CyanogenMod software
    The phone has a 5.9 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and CyanogenMod’s custom version of Android 4.4 KitKat. It should launch in China this October. [GizChina]
  • PCLinuxOS 2014.08 released
    This one-time spinoff from Mandrake Linux first came across my radar years ago thanks to a netbook-friendly version of the operating system. It’s still chugging along and the latest version uses the Linux kernel 3.15.9 and comes with a choice of KDE, LXDE, Mate, and other desktop environments.  [PCLinuxOS]
  • KinoConsole lets you stream PC games to a mobile device
    You know how NVIDIA’s GameStream technology lets you load a PC game on your computer and stream it over the internet to a mobile device? This does that too… but it doesn’t require an NVIDIA graphics card. Right now it does require a Windows PC and a Windows Phone device, but eventually it should support Android and iOS as well. Check out a video review below. [WP Central]

  1. I’ve been using this for a while. It’s really quite nice. Syncs fine between PC, Laptop and android tablet.

  2. Wow. This is actually a huge deal. I wonder how the NVidia Shield tablet and their other tablets with the specialized, non-digitizer pen will do using this version of OneNote

  3. Why do I have the feeling that this app will soon be “subscription based”?

  4. Microsoft made this for android and google won’t make a YouTube app for windows phone just sad.
