When we last saw OneNote for the iPad, we felt that as though Microsoft released its venerable note-taking app for its chief rival's device against its own will. The OneNote iPad app was so severely limited that only the most ardent OneNote users could find it useful. The updated app offers a boatload of improvements, though it still holds onto one limitation that makes the iPad users feel like second-class citizens to their Windows brethren.
And what is this egregious limitation to which I refer? Why, it's the simple task of creating a new notebook or even a new section. You can edit OneNote notebooks that you've created on a Windows PC or tablet until your heart's content, but you can't create new notebooks with the iPad app. And on existing notebooks, you can't even add a new section; you can only add new pages to an existing section in an existing notebook. Until this basic functionality is offered in OneNote, iPad users are better off paying for the $14.99 Outline+ app.
