Microsoft today released an update to its popular OneNote Mobile app for iPhone, bringing the version number up to 1.2 as it adds some new features and new international availability. According to the company, updated features in OneNote Mobile for iPhone 1.2 include:

Search – find text in notebooks, sections and pages

Pin recent notes – keep your favorite notes at the top of the Recently Viewed list

Sync shared notebooks – if others have shared their notebooks with you on SkyDrive, you can now sync them with your device and work on them together; just turn them on in the OneNote for iPhone Notebook Settings

Choose the notebooks that sync to your phone and appear on the Home screen – you’ll find this useful when you have SkyDrive notebooks that you don’t want to sync or view from your phone

Set image size for photos you insert – choose smaller image sizes for faster syncing or larger sizes for higher fidelity images

A new color scheme that gives the app a lighter look and feel

Additionally, this version of OneNote Mobile expands availability of the app to additional English-speaking regions:  Canada, the UK (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales), Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

You can download the OneNote Mobile for iPhone app free for a limited time, on the iTunes App Store. There is still no native iPad version, unfortunately.
