OneNote Adds Three Major New Partner Apps

Microsoft’s OneNote note-taking solution is free, but it’s also awesome, and a tool I use every single day. One of the many reasons OneNote is awesome is that it’s extensible, and today Microsoft announced three new partner apps. Which naturally make OneNote even more, um, awesomer.

The OneNote extensibility API debuted a bit over a year ago. Since then, a number of OneNote apps have appeared, and you can find some of the better ones on OneNote’s Featured Apps page. Plus I’ve written about a few of these this year, including Office Lens, of course, and the OneNote Clipper.

This week, three more notable OneNote apps have arrived. They are:

WordPress. Now, you can compose a WordPress post in OneNote on “any device, cross-platform, online or offline,” and easily reuse content from all your existing notes. When you’re ready to publish, simply pick a page and hit publish with this simple add-in.


Equil. Users with Equil smart pens—the Equil Smartpen 2 and Smartmarker—can now “connect the physical surfaces of notepads and whiteboards” to OneNote. I assume this works similarly to the Livescribe integration I tested last year.


cloudHQ. This solution lets you automatic sync a OneNote notebook with a folder in Dropbox, or an account in Salesforce, “either of which will let you view and edit your information, in real-time, with nothing to download.”


Good stuff.
