SOFTWARE SCHEMER Microsoft has managed to get a Microsoft Office application onto its arch-rival Apple's Iphone.
The Vole's Onenote is a note-taking application and while it is not exactly the biggest part of Microsoft's portfolio it is still part of its glorious Borg empire.
The version for Iphone syncs notes to Windows Live Skydrive for access via the web, another phone, or the Onenote software on a Windows PC. It requires Apple's IOS 4.2 software update to run and has gone through the gauntlet that is Apple's App Store submission process.
While the Onenote mobile app is based on the Onenote 2010 desktop application it lacks a lot of functions. It is basically designed to create shopping lists and to-do lists, prepare for a trip or project, and take class or meeting notes without lugging around your laptop.
The Vole is being especially generous with the app, which is free for a limited time. Microsoft claims that one day it will charge for the Onenote app but it has not said when or how much.
There are many Microsoft Office applications that could be shoved onto the Iphone, but it seems that the Vole thought note-taking was in higher demand.
Still there will be those who will be shocked and amazed that Steve Jobs has let a Microsoft application onto the Iphone. µ
