Microsoft OneNote 1.2 for iPhone Can Share Notes on SkyDrive

You can’t get Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint for the iPhone. But, you can get Microsoft OneNote. OneNote on the desktop is a powerful multimedia notetaking app. It is less powerful and less media rich on the iPhone and Windows Phone. However, it is still a useful network aware note taking app. The 1.2 update for the iPhone app adds a number of enhancements including the ability to synchronize shared notebooks stored on Windows Live SkyDrive (Microsoft provides 25GB of free cloud storage with this service).
