I’m finding myself using OneNote more and more over the last year or so. The fact that there are native clients for PC, OSX, and iOS, and that they’re *good* clients makes it a really nice tool for anyone who wants to track notes/tasks/other stuff and uses a mix of Windows, OSX and iOS devices. Oh, and it’s free too if you’re concerned about costs.
Over the past weeks I’ve bookmarked a number of OneNote related links. Here they are collated for your compressed reading pleasure, and it’s only now that I’ve noticed that a number of them come from the same source (I find most of my content via Zite, so I don’t always notice the source while I’m in the app).

Microsoft OneNote tips: 5 better ways to manage and share data – pretty basic, but still some useful stuff in there, like linking to specific paragraphs inside a note.
Evernote vs. OneNote: Note-Taking Apps Showdown – contents of this link are as expected (spoiler alert – it’s all down to personal preference!).
Microsoft brings its digital ink to the iPad with OneNote handwriting update – a few months old now, handy for those of you who are able to read your own handwriting (I can’t, that’s why I can type 120+ WPM).
