siliconreview Microsoft’s ‘OneNote’ design revamps by simplifying navigation, also brings steadiness across devices

Microsoft's OneNote is already one of the better productivity apps that you can find on all major platforms but now the company has further updated the app's design to provide users with more consistency across devices. Additionally, the tech giant added that the new update makes the navigation layout simpler of the app as well as advances the user experience for people who use assistive technologies.

The design renovation has been made for the OneNote app on iOS, Android, as well as Web version and gets a new layout for simpler navigation. The tech giant says that it tried to focus on making the app more working for people who are visually-challenged or suffer mobility impairments with this.

"We interviewed hundreds of people and analysed product telemetry to understand how to improve keyboard shortcuts and the screen reader experience. We're excited to share a vastly improved user experience in these two areas," the company said in its blog.

In order to get better OneNote navigation layout, particularly for the larger notebooks, Microsoft says that all the direction-finding controls are now shifted to the left-hand side of the app. The company says that this change helps users in effortlessly switching between their notes and also improves the user experience for those who use assistive technologies.

Additionally, the company also added that as OneNote users often toggle devices while using the app, so the all new updated design will get more steadiness crosswise platforms to offer "cohesive user experience across all screens." As per the company, that this part of the update will be useful for schools as students will be easily able to change between their home and school devices.

"The new redesign for OneNote is rolling out for Windows 10, Mac, iOS, Android and on the Web over the coming weeks," Microsoft said.
