Microsoft OneNote makes its way to Android, first 500 notes free

Microsoft has decided that Windows Phone may not be quite ready to compete against the likes of Android yet, and has instead brought the OneNote note-taking app to the Android Market. All that is required is Android 2.3 and above, with 500 free notes included. After that it’ll cost $4.99 a month, but is reasonable for what it does. The app includes many advanced note-taking features, and is aimed to compete against others like Evernote.

The app can be downloaded in the Android Market now, so hit the source link if you’d like the give it a shot. The rest of the description is below, so feel free to take a peek and let us know what you think in the comments.
