Microsoft has released an iPhone app called OneNote, which links to the desktop version of its note-gathering application. (You probably already own this app if you bought the business version of Outlook.) OneNote is a bridge between Outlook and Word in that you can jot down notes, then e-mail them or start a new document. The irony, though, is that Microsoft has released the app for iPhone even though they recently debuted a brand new smartphone platform called Windows Phone 7. Note: I reviewed several new phones in the latest issue of the magazine. The lesson here: when you know a competing smartphone has a massive installed base, and that installed base tends to actually download and try new apps, you follow the rampage. Oh, and you can get the app on your Win phone, too.
