Microsoft on Tuesday said more than 30,000 people have signed up to test its upcoming OneNote note-taking software. The software is intended as a tool for taking quick notes and is seen as an adjunct to the company's Word and other Office desktop applications. Microsoft said the software will make it easier for people to transcribe quick notes, preserve URLs, and easily find information stored on a PC.
The test version will be released this month, Microsoft said. A final version is slated to ship by midyear. No pricing or packaging details have been disclosed.
