OneNote

The OneNote development team at Microsoft has released a video that ... well, may be among the oddest but still entertaining things we have seen from a major corporation in a while. It shows how the note taking app can be used with the new Surface Pro 3, but with a electronic house music beat set to the tune of "I'm Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO.

Weave newsreader has been on Windows Phone since 2010 and is one of our go-to apps for keeping track of news or topics of interest (there’s also a swanky Windows 8 app for your Surface or PC). Last week, we covered a significant update that brought Pocket support for saving articles. At the time, we hinted that there was room for “one more share button” and we now have the answer as to what that’s for: OneNote.

Microsoft and Weave had teamed up to use their new OneNote API, which gives developers the ability to integrate OneNote into their apps. Weave is one of those apps, and one of the first to do so. Even better? There’s no update, just open up Weave right now, and it will be there under the Share button. Surprise!

We are approaching the 10th birthday of Microsoft’s information gathering application, OneNote. The first edition of OneNote to be released was OneNote 2003 in November of the same year. If you are like me, you may not have been introduced to Microsoft’s info application until only a few years ago when the company decided to include it in all versions of Office 2010.

This is a strange one indeed. OneNote for Windows Phone 7 allows consumers to pin the create note tile to their Start screen, but this feature is amiss in Windows Phone 8.

That is unless you're using the latest hardware with the GDR2 update. We've checked on our Nokia Lumia 925 and it does indeed enable us to pin the tile to the Start screen, which has been confirmed by the OneNote team on Reddit.

Evernote updated, with a fix here and there

Evernote is a solid choice and it’s a good alternative to OneNote. Plus if you’ve been using it for a few years on other platforms you’ll probably not be quite ready to make the jump completely to OneNote. The little app with an elephant has just gotten a bump to fix a few issues.

It seems that the recent SkyDrive upgrade is now causing some issues with SkyDrive and OneNote users on their Windows Phone when synchronizing documents and notes between the cloud and a handset (check out our howto for more information). Users are reportedly met by errors stating that the document and/or note is not available on the server.

Rest assured that your content has not been lost. All that's required is to reset Office on Windows Phone, which will wipe locally stored files and clear pinned items. Check out the following steps:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Go to the Applications pivot
  3. Select Office
  4. Press the Reset Office button (if you get a message that Office could not be reset, reboot your phone and try again)
