Microsoft has just released a version of OneNote for the Mac. The company is positioning OneNote as a competitor to Evernote, and as such the app does offer some compelling features. One thing that does make OneNote for the Mac particularly notable (pun intended) is that it’s free. The free Mac app also includes 7GB of free storage space on Microsoft’s servers. If you have a new Office 365 account, you unlock more storage as well as access to premium features not available with the free version of OneNote.
A week ago, word leaked that Microsoft was preparing to release free versions of OneNote for Mac and for the Windows desktop. On March 17, Microsoft delivered both versions of its electronic note-taking and organizational application. Microsoft is broadening OneNote’s platform support so as to better compete with rivals, especially Evernote, on the note-taking/organizational front. OneNote for Mac is available for download from the Mac App Store as of today. It’s the first time OneNote has been available for the Mac. Previously, OneNote was available for Windows,Windows 8, Windows Phone, iPad, iPhone, Android tablets, Android phones, and the Web (OneNote Online, formerly known as OneNote Web App).
