Microsoft recently announced that OneNote would be absolutely free! OneNote is a noting app from Microsoft. It is more like a sense of organizing things and doing note. It is clean and minimal, no distracting elements or unnecessary things.

In OneNote, users can add text, create tables, insert pictures. OneNote saves data automatically for the user as the user works. OneNote saves information in pages which are organized into sections within notebooks. You can directly make notes and add material from other applications.

OneNote integrates search features and indexing features, as well as free-form graphics and audio repository. You can search for images, make screen captures. It can also search for “electronic ink” annotations as text, and phonetically searches audio recordings on a text key. It can replay audio notes and much more.

Till now we knew Microsoft as bad designers with bad intuition. Now I am impressed with the apps they release like OneNote.
