Microsoft OneNote for iPad
Microsoft OneNote for iPad keep your notes synchronized between your PC and iPad

Despite having its own mobile platform to support, Microsoft has not forgotten the importance of keeping app available for other devices. The iPhone version of OneNote has been available for a little while now, but the iPad edition has been a long time coming. Here, at last, for owner of iOS tablets, is Microsoft’s OneNote, optimized for the larger screen of the iPad

The app is a surprisingly powerful note taking tool that can be used in a variety of ways. It can be used to takes notes in a meeting or to scratch down ideas when brainstorming a new project. While it is not really a task manager, there is the option of creating to-do lists which enables you to check off different stages of a project as they are completed.

If you have Microsoft Office installed on your desktop computer, it is possible that you have already been working with the desktop version of OneNote. The two apps can be kept in sync using Microsoft SkyDrive and this cloud synchronization also means that your notes are made available online to access from any computer with an internet connection.

While the software is available free of charge, if you are as more demanding user, there may be some hidden costs further down the line. Everyone is able to create up 500 notes without incurring a penalty but if you want to create more than this you will have to buy the unlimited notes in-app purchase. For iPhone users this is just $4.99, but iPad users will find that they are expected to shell out $14.99 – this could be particularly frustrating if you own both an iPad and an iPhone and there is not a universal app available.

What's new in v2.1?

• Create new notebooks within SkyDrive 
• Create, rename or delete sections
• Improved Japanese typing responsiveness
• Automatic list detection
• Bug fixes


A great tool to compliment the desktop version of OneNote, but if you need to be able to create lots of notes it quickly becomes expensive.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
