Although I started using OneNote just recently, the service, completes 10 years of its existence this month. Yes, OneNote was released in November 2003 but till date, is only seen as a new addition to the Office Productivity suite. Clearly, it’s the lack of knowledge about note-taking app that holds back users from trying it.
Ever since its official launch, Microsoft has expanded the reach of the service to other popular platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8. This, has managed to expand the user base of OneNote app.
David Rasmussen, Partner Group Program Manager of OneNote writes on the Office News Blog,
This month OneNote celebrates 10 years of helping users capture notes at home, school, work and anywhere in between. In that time, OneNote has grown and added features for managing everything from recipe collections, to class notes, to projects and events — across phones and tablets, as well as the PC.
OneNote celebrates 10 years
To mark the occasion (10th anniversary) with celebration, Microsoft is launching the One Notable Decade campaign in an effort to raise awareness of the powerful software. The company has uploaded some new promotional videos on its Office News Blog showing how some people use the application in their daily lives.
