In August, Microsoft announced Floatie, an added OneNote feature. It might have sounded insufficiently attractive, so now Microsoft announced Badge for OneNote app.
For those of us working with OneNote, we know how much time it can save by providing a quick and efficient manner of organizing dispersed notes from a variety of sources in one coherent online notebook.
With the addition of Badge, a OneNote button will basically float around on any platform, making the note taking app ever more valuable. As Microsoft announced Badge for OneNote app, opening the app per se is no longer required. Badge will be the omnipresent button allowing for easy access and copy pasting.
Microsoft doesn’t want to new feature to become cumbersome. So if you’re not a power user and don’t necessarily require the Badge button, you can activate it or deactivate according to your needs.
Badge for OneNote is set to roll out for both Windows, Android and iOS, as well as online. What can each of us expect from the newly introduced update?
For once, Android users of OneNote will see the badge floating around pretty soon. OneNote Badge looks similar to chat windows from Facebook Messenger. Once launched, the Badge button will float on the display of your Android device allowing rapid access to noting down some interesting information. The update will be rolled out gradually.
iOS users now have the possibility of even including audio notes in the OneNote organizer. In addition, OneNote for iOS is also optimized for the 3D touch support. Thus, for all iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users the pressure-sensitive displays gain one more application.
OneNote for Windows offers the possibility to embed online videos. Microsoft acknowledged that the list of sources is limited for now. Nonetheless, the company promises that more online sources and platforms will soon be integrated.
