OneNote hits Google’s Android

Android gets OneNote, but there's no sign of a BlackBerry version.

OneNote lovers will now be able to edit their notes on Android devices, thanks to a new Microsoft app.

The productivity app is already available on iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone 7, but it now arrives on the most popular mobile OS on the planet. There was no mention of BlackBerry support, however.

"No matter which platform you prefer, OneNote Mobile lets you easily capture and access all of your notes and ideas on the go," said Michael Oldenburg, technical writer in the Office division at Microsoft, in a blog post.

Using Microsoft's SkyDrive cloudy technology, users can now push out and sync OneNote data across their various devices.

Features in OneNote Mobile for Android include the standard to-do lists and text formatting, alongside quick photo capture and offline access to notes. There's also an option to sync notebooks only over a Wi-Fi connection.

OneNote for Android is free to download and use for up to 500 notes, but those who want more will have to upgrade for a one-time fee of 2.99.

However, those who don't upgrade will still be able to view, sync and delete any of their existing notes even if they go above the 500 notes limit.

The OneNote for Android launch came just days after Microsoft launched a mobile app for its Dynamics CRM product, which will work across BlackBerry, iOS and Windows Phone 7 devices as well as Google's OS.

OneNote for iOS went on global release towards the end of last year.
