Note-taking apps often have very loyal users. There are EverNote geeks, Things devotees, and Microsoft OneNote aficionados. If you fall firmly into the latter camp and use Android devices, you'll want to listen up: your OneNote addiction can now follow you anywhere. However, if you\u2019re not already a OneNote die-hard, this new app probably isn\u2019t going to make you one.\n\tOn February 7, Microsoft released OneNote Mobile for Android devices (the current version is 14.0.4906.3000, which is what I tested). Mobile versions of OneNote have been available for iPhones and iPod touch, the iPad, and of course, Windows Phone smartphones. And all OneNote mobile apps are free.\n\tOneNote Mobile for Android lets you create notes on the fly, and those notes can include photos, bulleted or numbered lists, and checkmark boxes. The notes automatically sync with Microsoft's free SkyDrive cloud storage service, which requires a Windows Live ID. (If you don\u2019t have a Windows Live ID, you can create one when you first use OneNote Mobile for Android.) You can opt to only sync your notes over a Wi-Fi connection to reduce your cellular data use, which is a nice feature.\n\tOneNote Mobile for Android lets you create up to 500 notes for free. If you exceed that limit, you'll need to upgrade to an unlimited OneNote plan via an in-app purchase of $5.\n\tOneNote for Android does what it promises, but to my tastes the iPhone version\u2019s interface is nicer. For example, OneNote on the iPhone puts the app\u2019s menu icons at the bottom of the screen and labels each icon (such as Notebooks, Recents, and so on). OneNote for Android puts the menu icon at the top of the screen without labels. (I didn\u2019t test OneNote on a Windows Phone.)\n\tSo why am I not giving OneNote for Android a ringing endorsement? The app doesn\u2019t allow you to create new notebooks, you can\u2019t format or highlight the text, and it lacks search. Also, images within notes were sometimes blurry; I had to click to open them for a clearer view (notice the image in the screen shot.)\n\tFor the most part, I prefer Catch, a free app that makes it super easy to create notes with pictures, text, or audio and to "hashtag" them for easy sorting. Catch is available for Android and iPhone\/iPad.
