OneNote for iPhone now smaller in size, gains speed and bug fixes

Microsoft on Friday updated its digital notebook app OneNote, which it offers in separate versions for the iPhone and iPad. Though both are now at version 2.1, the major changes have been made to the iPad edition -- which can now operate completely untethered from syncing with a computer by using local storage or the company's SkyDrive cloud service to create, store and sync notebooks for the first time. Both versions also now support automatic list detection, meaning users can start a list type and the formatting will change to accommodate it.

Both the iPad and iPhone versions gain speed and other improvements in their Japanese typing implementation. In addition, the iPhone version is now less than half of its former file size thanks to optimizations and bug fixes. The iPad version also had some bugs squashed in the update.

The iPad version has now added support for creating, renaming and deleting sections in documents as well as the SkyDrive and local-storage notebook support. Microsoft offers up to 7GB free with SkyDrive accounts, and like most other cloud services it is compatible with Macs, Windows, iOS, Android and Windows Mobile devices.
