OneNote Gets a Design Refresh on iOS

“Experience the re-designed look and feel of OneNote,” the app description notes. “It’s easier than ever to organize your notes with an improved layout. All of your notebooks, sections, and pages can be found in columns on the side of the app, efficiently navigable with screen readers, keyboards, and more.”

OneNote 16 is available for free from the Apple Apps Store, but Office Insiders have had access to this new app version for a few weeks now.

If you access it on an iPhone, you probably won’t notice too much difference as the portrait layout on a phone pretty much ensures that each column—notebooks, notebook, section, and note, as you navigate in—just takes up an entire screen, as before.

But on an iPad, OneNote does indeed more closely resemble OneNote on Windows, with multiple UI columns generally visible all the time. (The number varies depending on what you’re doing; in a note view, for example, you can see both the section and note columns.)

As, ahem, noted, OneNote for iOS is available for free.
