OneNote for iPad update untethers app from PC-based OneNote program
Microsoft OneNote, the software giant’s note taking application, has been updated to version 2.1 today. With this update, the iPad app can act as a standalone and doesn’t require a PC to create new notebooks or edit sections. As noted on the OneNote blog, the functionality is now live in the iPad app, but while the iPhone app received an update today the new features aren’t available there.
New SkyDrive notebooks
Notebooks are an essential part of OneNote and play a significant role in helping you organize all of your content. Many of our customers submitted feedback requesting the ability to create new notebooks. We’re happy to announce that OneNote for iPad now has full support for creating new SkyDrive notebooks.
On the Notebooks list, tap Create Notebook.
Enter a name for your new notebook, then tap Create. You’re all set!
Add, rename, and delete sections
Sections are a great way to help you group your notes within a notebook. With this update, you can add, rename and delete sections.
It’s really easy to add a section on OneNote for iPad: On the sections bar, tap the plus button, enter a name for your new section, and you’re on your way.
Tap the desired section title to bring up the two options, Delete and Rename.
If you’d like to rename a section, select that option, and the section title will be automatically highlighted. Just start typing and tap Done on your keyboard to save the new name.
