We understand that Microsoft will release the OneNote for Mac app for free, and the company is also planning to make the Windows desktop version available at no extra cost. This marks a significant change in the way Microsoft manages OneNote, unbundling it fully from the cost of Office.
This is seen as targeted at Evernote and other cloud-based productivity tools. OneNote is available for iOS, but otherwise itís a lock-in for its Windows Office suite. Itís interesting that theyíre both releasing it for the Mac and making it a free stand-alone product. To be successful, Microsoft realizes they need a cross-platform product for both Mac and iOS.
Iím a big fan of Evernote, but OneNote has some advantages in a workplace entrenched in Office. I played around with it a little, but still preferred Evernote. Iíll be curious to check it out on the Mac.
