Microsoft continues to show its iOS portfolio some attention with todays launch of a major update to their OneNote application for iPhone and iPad. Following the — albeit limited — launch of Office for iOS, OneNote has been redesigned from the ground up with a mostly new codebase and a new, cleaner interface that is more consistent across platforms, as well as a more consistent, rich editing experience. So, the notes you create on your Windows 8 computer will look virtually identical when you open them up on your iPhone or iPad.

The update also adds SkyDrive Pro and Sharepoint syncing, important for those users who rely on OneNote as part of their business solution. The iPad version gets the Office Ribbon UI along the top of the display, instantly familiar to anyone who's ever used Microsoft Office for any length of time. The update also puts an end to the 500 note limit for free users. From now on, create as much as you like, for as long as you like. Truth be told, OneNote is one of only a few Microsoft apps I've ever found myself using for any length of time, and this new version really isn't bad. Grab a copy from the App Store now, and be sure to let us know how you're finding it.
