Microsoft seems to be cognizant of the fact that their mobile software would have a much wider reception being available across platforms. Not so long ago they introduced OneNote to iOS, and now they’re bringing the cloud-synced note-taking app to Android.

Supporting Android 2.3+ devices (though there is no explicit tablet support) the app allows you to take 500 notes for free before paying $4.99 for an in-app purchase. Features include bulleted lists, highlights, check boxes, and even photo notes. You can create to-do lists and edit tables that have been synced from the desktop app, though you cannot create tables natively.

OneNote meets lots of competition in the excellent Evernote, the ever-improving Springpad and the growing Catch Notes, among others.

    Shocking! This application and its Metro look has a much nicer styling than many Android apps. How ironic.

    Is the $4.99 a one time purchase or some sort of recurring subscription fee? What kind of storage capacity do they provide for syncing? Is it just stuffed into you SkyDrive account or is it separate?

    It’s free for up to 500 notes.
    Then, you can pay 4.99$ for unlimited use.

    Awesome, and the new Playbook OS will run Android apps!! Just what I was looking for, a non-iPad OneNote solution!
