OneNote is an amazing program from Microsoft that allows you to sync notes, files and Web pages between all of your devices. Once I started using it, I essentially abandoned almost every other program that I used to store information on my computer.
While the OneNote app has been available on the iPhone 5 for a little while, it just recently got some very helpful integration thanks to iOS 8. You can now send Web pages directly to OneNote from your Safari browser with just a few simple steps.
Save to OneNote in Safari on an iPhone
The steps below will assume that you have already downloaded and set up the OneNote app on your iPhone 5. If not, you can read this article to learn how.
You will also need to update to iOS 8, and have the most current version of OneNote installed on your device. Read here to find out how much free space you will need if you still have to install the iOS 8 update.
Step 1: Open the Safari browser.
Step 2: Browse to the website that you want to save to OneNote.
Step 3: Touch the Share icon at the bottom of the screen.
Step 4: Scroll to the right side of the top row, then select the More option.
Step 5: Touch the button to the right of OneNote, then touch Done at the top-right corner of the screen.
Step 6: Touch the OneNote button.
Step 7: Touch the Location button to select the notebook to which you want to save the site, then touch the Send button at the top-right of the screen.
Have you noticed that your contacts now appear on the app switcher after updating to iOS 8? You can remove them from the app switcher screen, however, if you do not like this functionality.
