Microsoft has announced a complete overhaul of the mobile version of its OneNote note-taking software. The updated version is available for iOS and Android the service features a new look and increased functionality.

The most important new feature is the increased consistency in the editing experience across different platforms, meaning text, table, and layout formatting will be the same across different devices.

In addition the service now features syncing via SkyDrive Pro and SharePoint. Power users will be happy to find the previous 500-note limit has been removed from the app.

iPad users get an extra bonus feature, access to the Office Ribbon UI. The app is now available in the US App Store and on Google Play.
