OneNote Windows Store App updated

One of the first Windows Store apps to ship along with Windows 8 was the OneNote app, and today, according to a blog post on the OneNote blog, the app is receiving a “BIG update”:

Today, we released an update to the OneNote Windows Store app that significantly improves how you capture, find and view the notes you care about most. We were inspired by Windows 8.1 and the new devices that are perfect for note-taking: tablets with pens, such as Surface Pro 2, and smaller tablets, such as the Dell Venue 8 Pro. This update makes it easier to capture notes using the Windows 8.1 Share Charm, enables you to scan things with your camera and search them, and shows your recent notes with page previews.

The update features the ability to capture your Windows 8.1 screen to the Share Charm, a cool new feature called Camera Scan that allows you to capture, and then automatically crop, rotate, straighten, remove shadows, and sharpen the image. The blog post includes a video describing Camera Scan:


Also included in the new update are Recent Notes and Page Previews, better pen (or finger!) annotation, and a Full Screen mode, along with bug fixes and performance improvements.
