I used to used use Microsoft’s OneNote application all the time but about 4 years ago I switched to Evernote due to its better multi-platform support. But recently Microsoft have pushed OneNote out to more platforms with Windows Phone and iOS versions and now an Android version. The app is free for the first 500 notes and then costs £2.99 to upgrade to the full version.
I am really happy using Evernote so I can’t see me switching back but its good to see Microsoft looking at multiple platforms.
