.I scouted around and found a great blog post today that provides instructions on how to get everything loaded and synched. Here it is: Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 provides two-way synchronization with Windows Mobile–powered Smartphones or Pocket PCs so that you can stay productive no matter where you are.

To synchronize Office OneNote 2007 with your mobile device: 1. Connect the device to your computer. Microsoft ActiveSync starts.

2. When prompted, download Microsoft Office OneNote Mobile to your device.

3. Take notes on your mobile device.

4. The next time you connect your mobile device to your computer and open OneNote, the notes you took will be copied to the OneNote Mobile Notes notebook in OneNote. Information you put in the Mobile Notes notebook will be viewable on your device.

Pretty nifty!

Iheart member katnchains broke the news about the new OneNote iPhone app being called MobileNoter:

That’s right!  Somebody finally made an app for syncing your beloved OneNote with your just as beloved IPhone.  If you’re not an IPhoner please forgive me and move right along to the next blog.

But for those of you that have an IPhone and really wanted your OneNote to go everywhere with you, then MobileNoter is for you.  MobileNoter, created by The MS Team, is now available in the appstore with a windows client to download for $1.25 per month from their website.

But don’t take my word for it.  Check it out https://www.mobilenoter.com/

I sync’d about half of my notebooks and there are a couple of things that I’m hoping they’ll fix in upcoming versions but overall I think it’s a fantastic companion program.  It was fast and easy to set both of the programs up and it was pretty fast to sync my notebooks from my pc to the iphone.  The two bugs I’ve got are, it doesn’t seem to handle images in pages yet and it doesn’t sync sections that are password protected.  I’m not sure the second is really a bug, for security purposes it probably makes sense not to touch those.  But the images thing is a pretty big problem for me as I have many pages with screen clips or things I’ve printed into onenote.

Here’s what their website says:

MobileNoter is an iPhone note-taking application that is able to sync with Microsoft OneNote notebooks. Do you use OneNote on daily basis on your laptop or PC and dream to be able to sync it with your iPhone? Then MobileNoter is just what you are looking for.

Those of us who wish that OneNote Mobile was available on more phones will be watching this news with interest:


Microsoft and Nokia have entered into an alliance that is “set to deliver a groundbreaking, enterprise-grade solution for mobile productivity”. They will begin collaborating immediately on the design, development and marketing of productivity solutions, bringing Microsoft Office Mobile and Microsoft business communications software to Nokia’s Symbian OS smartphones, starting with the business-focussed Eseries. The two companies will jointly market these solutions to businesses, carriers and individuals. Read on for further details on today’s announcement.

The high profile part of the announcement sees an agreement for Microsoft to bring ‘Microsoft Office Mobile and Microsoft business communications’ to Nokia phones. The Microsoft Office portion will include read and edit versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote. Microsoft’s Stephen Olop noted this was a very significant announcement, ‘it is the first time Microsoft will develop an Office solution for another smartphone platform’. Currently the Office solution on Nokia phones is provided by Quickoffice, it is currently unclear how the new alliance will affect Nokia’s licensing agreements with Quickoffice.

The alliance also includes collaboration on back-end software. For example, the ability to work collaboratively via Microsoft’s Sharepoint solution was discussed. Nokia phones will also be integrated into Microsoft System Center, which helps companies manage their IT infrastructure. This includes the ability to deploy and remotely manage Nokia devices as part of an end to end enterprise solution. Both companies expect the collaboration to extend and broaden into other areas over time.

However, long term, the most significant part of the alliance may be the level of future co-operation and collaboration between the two companies. Both Nokia and Microsoft emphasised that this is a long term partnership and that they are most excited about the products that are yet to be created. The two companies intend to work together to create the next generation of communication and productivity tools. A key focus area will be unified communications. The alliance is ‘way beyond documents and email… it is about creating new user experiences and new ground breaking soutions’ according to Microsoft’s Stephen Olop. Kai Öistämö said, ‘what we have shared today is not the full extent of the alliance… this is about much more than just putting Microsoft software on Nokia phones. We are here to address the significant opportunity in the enterprise market and will be collaborating on the enterprise tools of tomorrow’.
