Adding iCloud Drive as a storage option doesnt require an Office 365 subscription and comes as an alternative to Microsoft's own cloud storage solution, OneDrive.

The Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps were also launched for iPhone users in early November, bringing free document creation and basic editing to Apple mobile phones.

Microsoft OneNote for iOS updated (2.9) with handwriting support, OCR and more


Besides updating Office for Apple's mobile platform, Microsoft has also released an updated version (2.9) of OneNote for iOS. The OneNote app for iPad now carries a new handwriting mode – or inking feature, which allows you to scribble directly on your notes with freehand movements, using your fingers or any third-party stylus. The Windows and Android versions of OneNote have had this feature for almost a year, and a spokesperson of the Microsoft’s OneNote team said, "OneNote for iPad reflects lessons we’ve learned over the years by from studying and understanding how people use pens."

The handwriting feature has been coupled with a much needed ‘Palm Rejection’ feature, which allows you to set your preferred style of holding the stylus so as to avoid accidental palm touches on the surface. There are plenty of tools to help make your writing experience a rich one, with an array of brush styles and colors to choose from.



OneNote for iOS also brings optical character recognition (OCR) support, not only convert printed text into digital content, but even better, allowing users to directly search for text in any image or photo containing printed characters, giving them a whole new way of extracting useful content for note-taking purposes in a quick and efficient manner. The process will take around four to five minutes to fully index the content, and once done, will be searchable across OneNote on Macs, PCs, phones and tablets.
