Microsoft said Monday that it was bringing OneNote to the Mac and also making the Office note-taking app free for all users.
It remains to be seen how much the moves help OneNote against other cross-platform note-taking apps, particularly Evernote. Microsoft said it is reserving some premium features for paid users, a page right out of Evernote’s notebook.
Microsoft declined to comment on reports that it would have a new version of Office for the Mac this year. The company is also expected to — at long last — release a full-fledged tablet version of Office for the iPad, though this has been an on-again, off-again proposition for years now.
