OneNote for Android Update Brings Improved Sharing of Notes

Microsoft has released an update to their popular note taking app OneNote for Android.  The updated build is version 16.0.8067.1772 for those keeping score at home and the biggest new feature is the ability to share a page from the share panel built into Android Marshmallow or later.  This will make it far easier and fast to share thoughts and ideas with others.

The editing tools have also improved in this update.  The ability to cut, copy and past are there now along with other performance improvements to editing tools.  Couple this with the formatting tools being immediately available in the command bar, this overall makes the app easier to use, especially on a phone.

There is also a fix in this update to OneNote for PDFs.  In the last version, PDF rendering was buggy and sometimes would not work.  Microsoft indicates that they have addressed that issue in this

update.  I tested it this morning with a PDF I had issues within the previous update and it indeed did render correctly.  If you had an issue with PDFs in the last build, be sure to get this one as it looks like it fixed it.

As a reminder, OneNote is free to download from the Play Store and use.  It does not require an Office 365 account but if you have one, you can sync notes with it.
