Last month Microsoft updated the beta version of its OneNote app, adding in handwriting support, either via stylus or simply by using your finger. Now this feature is rolling out to the stable OneNote app, alongside a brand new tablet-optimized UI. OneNote has always worked on tablets, but the old UI wasn’t designed to take full advantage of the extra screen realestate.

The new tablet UI includes a navigation system that lets you scan through your notebooks and section quickly without as much zooming or tapping. While handwriting and the tablet UI are the two biggest changes, the app’s change-log also mentions new formatting options like font types, font sizes, alignments, and tags on your tablet. There’s also the expected dose of bug fixes and performance improvements.

To grab the update you’ll want to head on over to Google Play. For those that have already updated, what do you think of the new tablet UI? For smartphone owners, any noticeable changes at all?
