Microsoft recently launched a beta program for its OneNote Android app, and a couple weeks later we are now seeing the first update hit devices. It happens to include a number of noteworthy enhancements. Primarily, the debut beta update introduces the ability to take handwritten notes with either a fingertip or stylus, a natural progression for a note-taking app geared at touchscreen devices.

Joining this change are a number of formatting options letting users tweak fonts, text size, and word alignment. The app is also easier to navigate now that people are free to switch between notebooks and pages just by swiping.

Here's the changelog. LG G3 owners will be particularly pleased by the last bullet point.

What's new:

  • Take handwritten notes or draw with a stylus or with your finger.
  • Use a variety of formatting options like font types, font sizes, alignments, and tags on your tablet.
  • Move between your notebooks, sections, and pages with a swipe.
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements.
  • Support for LG G3

As previously mentioned, the beta program first launched earlier this month. For instructions on how to get in on this action, check out our announcement post from that time.
