Microsoft has released an app for Mac that aims to help teachers work more efficiently with OneNote in a classroom environment. The Class Notebook Tools add-on allows teachers to make changes to their Class Notebooks on Mac, granting more abilities to teachers that makes it easier to manage the contents and to distribute lessons to the class, as well as to monitor the progress of students working on set tasks.
The best way to get apps for your iPad is slowly: as you need to do something, find what does it, and try some out. The worst way is to read an article listing "100 Amazing Apps." and download the lot in one go. If nothing else, one person's amazing is another person's shrug. MacNN has picked 10 and while, actually yes, we think they're pretty amazing, this set has been picked specifically to be what every iPad should have.
On Wednesday, Microsoft updated its OneNote note-taking program for the Mac to include support for scanning and OCR of documents. The new 15.7.1 also includes to user-requested features -- the ability to close (rather than quit) the application's window using the standard Mac convention, and the ability to hide author initials in shared notebooks from the View tab.
Microsoft has released updates for its OneNote client, available for both iPhone and iPad. Considered a "digital notebook," OneNote documents can be shared with others and across devices. Adding support for new iOS 8 features, users can now password-protect sections of documents directly from mobile devices. Touch ID unlocking is now enabled for owners of iPhone 5s or newer, and users can insert files from a preferred cloud storage service with its new iOS 8 document picker. Pages can be reordered and moved, including subpages. OneNote is free to download, with some features requiring an Office 365 subscription.
Microsoft has made a number of updates to its Office Online web apps, just over a month after its rebranding and relaunch. Changes to the online versions of Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote apply to all users of the online productivity suite, with Chrome users also benefiting from the addition of the Office Online apps to the Chrome Web Store.
The recently-launched Office for iPad will get printing support "in due course," according to a Reddit AMA conducted by members of the software's engineering team. The team says it is also considering mathematical notation in OneNote, and working on implementation of comments and add/change conditional formatting in Excel. Something the suite won't support, though, is third-party Office apps, despite the fact that Microsoft allows desktop developers to hook into Office 365. Microsoft blames the situation on Apple's App Store policies, which block apps from installing code other than their own.
As anticipated last week, Microsoft has launched a free Mac version of OneNote at the Mac App Store. The software stores notes, lists, receipts, and other data. Most significantly it syncs the data across multiple platforms, including Windows, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and the web.
Microsoft is planning to launch a free version of OneNote for the Mac later this month as part of a plan to expand the functionality of the platform, sources say. The company currently has a paid version for Office for Windows, and free iOS, Android, and web apps, but has so far left OS X alone in the software's decade-plus history. Like the Mac version, the Windows title is also expected to become free.
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.
Microsoft has debuted redesigned iPhone, iPad, and Android editions of OneNote. All three apps have been rebuilt with more reliable sync functions, as well as some background tweaks which should make it easier for Microsoft to issue updates. More significantly, notes should now appear the same across all platforms, including Windows, Windows Phone, and the web.
