Download Now: Microsoft Releases OneNote 2013 App For Free To Windows Users

OneNote Everywhere

Microsoft today announced that OneNote 2013 app will be available for free to all Windows 8/Windows 7 customers. Earlier, you have to buy it as part of Office 2013 suite or buy it separately for $69. OneNote is now free everywhere including the Windows PC desktop and Mac version. There are some premium features that are available to paid customers, but most of the features are available to everyone.

People love OneNote 2013 on Windows. We want this awesome experience to be available to anybody, so we’ve created a free version! It’s designed for personal and school use, it’s totally ad-free and there’s no limit on how long you can use it because it’s not just a trial. For Office 365 and Office 2013 customers, we have premium features like SharePoint support, version history, Outlook integration and so on, but all the core OneNote application capabilities are available in the free version.

Everything you create in the free PC and Mac clients are synced to OneDrive, so you can access them from your phone and tablet too. Your Microsoft Account gives you 7GB of free storage with no monthly upload limit, so there’s plenty of room for everything you want to remember.

If you have an older version of OneNote or haven’t yet had a chance to use OneNote on your PC, get OneNote 2013 today at

    Nice, hope that more will start using it and that sharing of notes will be easier now. Still however waiting for improved ink-to-text recognition. Still not here since 2005. If microsoft would invest a bit more in improving that expierence, the program would be ultimately awesome!

    I’ve already downloaded it, I’ve tried Microsoft Office 2013 on my grand-uncle’s P.C. in Amsterdam, and it’s amazing, I really regret having bought Microsoft Office 2010 (Dutch Student Edition) because I was afraid of the monthly subscription model, just like I had with Windows 8, I had to see it used outside of a store before I was convinced, it’s a bit sad that Microsoft’s marketing is so bad. :-(
