OneNote app for Windows 8 updated with new features

In April, Microsoft launched a major new version of the OneNote app for Windows 8 that added an number of new features such as finger drawing support and new pen options. Now yet another new update for the app has been released, adding two small but interesting new features.

In a post on the OneNote blog, Microsoft says that one of the new features will allow users to sign into the app if they have an Office 365 account. This will allow users to open any work notes made in Office 365 with the OneNote app.

The other new feature is for folks who want the on-screen keyboard designed for Windows 8 touchscreens to go away so that they can see the entire OneNote app on screen to read. Microsoft says, "Just tap into any empty space and the keyboard will go away." If you want to bring the on-screen keyboard back to continue making notes, you simply tap on any empty space on the screen to do so.

The launch of the new OneNote app for Windows 8 follows the recent release of a major app revamp for the iOS and Android ports, with a number of new features added for both versions.

Is it just me, or OneNote text on Windows 8.1 Preview looks a little too blurry?

I haven't noticed this at all. Are your display settings set correctly, and drivers up to date?
