Office en OneNote + Livescribe 3 (+ iOS) <div class="field-deck"> Yes, you need a modern iPad or iPhone too </div> <div class="node-body article-body">While OneNote natively supports handwriting on Windows and Android, most of us don't have the right pen-enabled hardware to use that functionality effectively. But Livescribe has an interesting and even affordable alternative, assuming you're already using an iPad or other iOS device: the Livescribe 3 smart pen lets you take notes and write on real paper and then sync that content to OneNote.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> iPad iPhone OneNote Mobile Office Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:48:00 +0000 42551 at OneNote for Windows Store Gets a Major Update <div class="field-deck"> Printing, PDF inserting, and ink highlighting </div> <div class="node-body article-body">The OneNote mobile app for Windows 8/RT—or what Microsoft calls the OneNote Windows Store app—was updated today with some much-needed new capabilities.

It went well enough that I did so again this past week. But as it turns out, life—and the Internet--goes on without me. So here's a quick peek at some of the past week's developments that I missed writing about while I was away: Some Skype, OneNote Online, Windows Phone developer, Xbox One, and Call of Duty news, and more.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Call of Duty Cloud OneNote Xbox One Windows Phone Skype Games Office Software Development Mon, 18 Aug 2014 13:52:00 +0000 42371 at Embracing Web Apps <div class="field-deck"> Not sure mobile apps will ever make it in Windows </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Like many of you, I find myself using web pages—or, more appropriately, web apps—throughout the day. I've written and spoken about this phenomenon a lot, but the conventional wisdom is that most casual PC users can get by purely with web apps—Facebook, email, a web browser, even some basic games—and that this situation has led to the popularity of Chromebooks, especially in education and with consumers. But web apps don't just satisfy basic needs anymore. And that is a big change.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Android Chrome Chromebook ChromeOS Cloud Internet Explorer iOS Windows Phone Mobile Office Windows Mon, 18 Aug 2014 08:33:00 +0000 42361 at Office Lens for Windows Phone Gets a Nice Update <div class="field-deck"> Simply incredible </div> <div class="node-body article-body">One of Microsoft's most useful Windows Phone apps just got even better: Office Lens, which is like having a portable scanner in your pocket, now sports improved document scans and, better still, the ability to customize where scans are stored in OneNote.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> OneNote Windows Phone 8 Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Office 365 OneDrive Office Wed, 06 Aug 2014 09:44:00 +0000 42081 at A Touchable Office for the Enterprise? <div class="node-body link-body">If you're familiar with Microsoft's product portfolio, you know that the firm's "mobile first, cloud first" strategy is heavily tilted towards the latter half of that phrase. That is, Microsoft has had a lot more success moving its on-premises products—Windows Server, Exchange, SharePoint and the like—to cloud services than it has moving traditional software products to mobile devices. But there's one major exception to that rule: Office. And a coming generation of Office apps for touch-first mobile devices could very well revolutionize how we think about productivity going forward.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mobile devices Office Tue, 05 Aug 2014 17:49:00 +0000 42021 at Microsoft Issues Major Update to Office for iPad <div class="field-deck"> Word, Excel and PowerPoint all get big updates </div> <div class="node-body article-body">The Office for iPad apps—Word, Excel and PowerPoint Mobile—received major updates today, so fire up your iDevice and get updated.
