Microsoft's Office team has been busy developing mobile apps, and today's release of two new Office apps for mobile devices displays the fruit of their labors. First, the OneNote app for iOS has been updated with iPad compatibility, and second, the Lync 2010 app for Windows Phone has been released.
The new OneNote app for iOS offers easier navigation, table viewing and improved performance on the iPhone, and a new app version specifically designed for the iPad. The iPad edition features a new interface that takes advantage of the iPad's larger display. OneNote for iOS is free for up to 500 notes, after which it costs $4.99 for the iPhone version or $14.99 for the iPad version.
The new Lync 2010 app for Windows Phone is the first of a suite of Lync apps that is expected to include versions for the iPhone, iPad, Android, and Symbian platforms. It lets users start new IM conversations, check a contact's online status, and join audio conferences with one tap. Lync 2010 requires the use of Lync Server 2010 for it to function.
