As we near the April 24th launch for the Apple Watch, a pair of notable apps have received support for the device this evening. First off, Microsoft’s OneNote app has been updated to version 2.11.7 with support for the Apple Watch. A variety of features will be available from the Watch, including the ability to dictate new notes.

Microsoft says that OneNote on Apple Watch will allow users to access their recently created notes, as well as create new ones via dictation. Evernote announced a similar functionality for Apple Watch earlier this month, as well. Microsoft’s full description for its Apple Watch app can be read below. In addition to Apple Watch support, tonight’s OneNote update also includes a handful of bug fixes. The update is available now on the App Store for free. Microsoft this morning also updated its PowerPoint app with support for Apple Watch.

From the OneNote change log:

OneNote for Apple Watch – Excited about the Apple Watch? So are we! OneNote for Apple Watch allows you to pull up your recent notes or dictate new ones on the go, perfect for checking your list at the grocery store or capturing a thought instantly. Welcome to the future.

Furthermore, Calcbot has also gained support for Apple Watch this evening. Calcbot is the popular calculator and unit converter app from the developers of Tweetbot. Calcbot allows users to quickly perform conversions and scientific functions. The app was previously available on iOS and Mac and now Apple Watch with an update rolling out today.
