Microsoft OneNote gets instant access on Android, 3D Touch on iOS
Microsoft has released quite a number of major OneNote updates for Android, iOS, Windows and the web. If you’re an Android user, you’ll be able to quickly write down thoughts or copy-paste text even if you have another app open, thanks to the new OneNote badge. It can live anywhere on the screen, and you simply have to tap it to open it up. The company’s doing staged roll outs, though, so you might have to wait for two to three weeks to get the feature. If you have an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, you’ll get 3D Touch support instead.
When you press on the app icon, a menu will pop up allowing you to quickly create a new note or view recent ones. In addition, OneNote’s interface has been optimized for the iPad Pro’s larger screen.
The program’s web and iOS versions now have audio recording capability, as well — you simply have to click Insert and then Record Audio. At the same time, you can now attach a file to any page through the web version by clicking Insert and then File Attachments. Finally, if you’re an Office 365 Home or Personal subscriber using a Windows computer, you’re getting an exclusive (until it’s more widely available anyway) feature: the ability to embed YouTube, Vimeo or Office Mix Videos right onto a OneNote 2016 page.
