Microsoft has gone official with OneNote for the iPad. Interestingly, it’s free for occasional users but if you are a full time user you’ll pay $5 for the iPhone version and $15 for the iPad version. Still relatively cheap compared to $70 for the PC version.

Here are the details:

OneNote for iOS builds on previous releases with the following new features in version 1.3:

  • Support for iPad and iPad 2
  • Localization into several new languages and markets
  • Tabbed user interface
  • Quick note creation in the Unfiled Notes section
  • Table rendering
  • Improved Windows Live sign-in experience
  • Option to sync notebooks only over a Wi-Fi connection
  • Integrated upgrade option

OneNote 1.3 is free to download and use for up to 500 notes (the total of newly or previously created notes). To track your usage, tap the Settings button in the app and then tap the Upgrade button.

When you’ve reached the limit, you can upgrade OneNote 1.3 as follows:

  • $4.99 for unlimited use on your iPhone
  • $14.99 for unlimited use on your iPad

For pricing outside of the United States, please visit the iTunes App Store in your region (see the section below for a complete list of newly supported countries and markets).

If you choose not to upgrade to the unlimited version, you can still view, sync, and delete any of your existing notes even after you’ve reached the 500 notes limit. However, you will no longer be able to edit your notes or create new ones on your iPhone or iPad.
