For all those who are grasping from a longer time asking for a version of OneNote for their Android devices, here is good news for them, Microsoft announced the launch of OneNote for Android. Mobile versions of OneNote are currently available on Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, and now Android.

If you’re already using OneNote on your PC, the mobile versions of OneNote let you take your notes with you — from simple lists and to-dos to full-fledged notebooks which you can share with your friends, family, co-workers, or classmates. With a free Microsoft SkyDrive account, you can easily sync all of your OneNote notebooks so they’re always up-to-date and accessible from your mobile device, your Web browser, or your computer.

Feature summary:

  • Text formatting, images, and bulleted lists
  • To-do lists with clickable checkboxes
  • Quick photo capture with your phone’s camera
  • Quick access to recent notes
  • Store and access multiple OneNote notebooks
  • Sync to your free SkyDrive account for access anywhere
  • Offline access to your notes
  • Option to sync notebooks only over a Wi-Fi connection
  • Built-in spelling checker
  • Support for external hyperlinks
  • Table editing

OneNote Mobile for Android is free to download and use for up to 500 notes. When you’ve reached this limit, you can upgrade the app for a one-time fee of US $4.99 for unlimited use. If you choose not to upgrade to the unlimited version, you can still view, sync, and delete any of your existing notes even after you’ve reached the 500 notes limit. However, you will no longer be able to edit your notes or create new ones on your Android phone.

OneNote Mobile for Android is now available. Download it right from the Android Market app store.
