Microsoft OneNote

Designed to function as an electronic version of a paper notebook, Microsoft OneNote is a note-taking and personal information management (PIM) application for collecting, organizing and sharing digital information.  By storing text notes, photos, audio and video snippets, handwriting and similar content, Microsoft OneNote collects and organizes the information, making it available for searching as well as sharing with others.

Microsoft OneNote is included with the Microsoft Office suite, and it also syncs OneNote data between computers and devices through Microsoft's SkyDrive cloud storage service.  Native apps for using OneNote are available for Apple's iPhone and iPad, Windows Phone, and Android portable devices, and OpenNote notes can also be viewed in Web browsers via Office Web Apps.

The current release of Microsoft OneNote is OneNote 2010, although a beta version of OneNote 2013 is available in the Office 2013 preview release.  Additionally, OneNote MX, a version designed specifically for the Metro user environment and its features, is currently available as a preview as well.
