Start of a new week: OneNote App’s and More!

Happy Monday Folks! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Just a quick post to kick-start the week. For those of you using an iPhone, OneNote is now available for IOS. Much like OneNote within the full Office Hub on Windows Phone, the IOS version allows you to create text, voice and picture based notes from your mobile device that can then be easily synced to your PC and the cloud via SkyDrive. You now have full access to your OneNote content whether you are at your desk, out and about on your phone or securely via the web.

OneNote, both on my PC and mobile device, is definitely one of my 'must have' applications!


The OneNote application is currently free within the iTunes App Store and is well worth checking out.

Volume Licensing

On a slightly different note, we thought we would take this opportunity to briefly share some license changes that may affect you shortly. Building on the blog post written by Ray Fleming a few years ago on the subject of getting the best deal on software within education, when Vista goes end of sales on October 22nd there will some changes to the way that you upgrade via your Volume Licence (VL).

From the 22nd October, if you are keen to utilise your VL to upgrade you will need to purchase a Windows 7 Home Premium SKU pre-installed from your OEM before doing so, rather than using Vista Home Basic as the qualifying base license.

Alternatively, if your institution does not have a VL in place, you would need to purchase your required version of Windows, such as Windows 7 Professional, pre-installed from the OEM at point of purchase.

More information about volume licensing can also be found on our website where you will find a wealth of information that you might find relevant to the use of products licensed through Microsoft Volume Licensing programs.

Have a great week and let us know what you think of the new OneNote app!
