onenote-iosNot too long ago, Microsoft updated Office for iPad and introduced printing support for the suite. These are not the only apps which will be updated, however; Microsoft has pushed an update for OneNote for iPhone and Mac, and introduced a number of new features and enhancements for the app.

Let’s just start with OneNote for iPhone. The latest update lets users create notebooks on their iPhone with a few simple taps. Additionally, it also comes with Office Lens, a feature which give users the ability to scan documents usingOneNote. All you have to do is capture an image of the document and OneNote will trim, enhance and make pictures more readable. Additionally, it also comes with OCR (optical character recognition) feature which finds any text in the image. The latest OneNote for iPhone also embraces the iOS 7 design, and brings a new interface, which goes in line with the new operating system. (Actually, it’s not new, it’s been over six months.)

As for OneNote for Mac, users now get printing support, as well as the ability to drag and drop images from websites directly to OneNote and add hyperlinks to save long URLs.

Here’s the complete change log for the updated OneNote for Mac:

  • Print – Need to print your notes or a to-do list? Now you can with OneNote for Mac! You can also save your notes as a PDF.
  • Drag and Drop – Drag pictures from websites or other places on your Mac and drop them directly into your notes.
  • Formatted Text – We’ve added the ability to copy and paste formatted text between applications. Whether it’s an article from the web or a document in Word, any content you paste into OneNote will look great!
  • Format Painter – Use Format Painter to quickly copy the format of text in one part of your notes and apply it to other text.
  • Hyperlinks – Now you can add links to your notes or edit existing ones
