Microsoft’s OneNote mobile app updated to Version 16.27 and Version 16.0.11727.20002 on iOS and Android respectively this week.

The update for Apple’s iOS devices added a new option that allows for users to move images to a page’s background. New sync status information was also added.

Here’s the release notes:

  • Set Picture as Background: Lock inserted pictures to the page background, allowing for easier drawing and annotating over images in your notes.
  • Page Sync Status: Click the Page Sync Status button to see when the current page was last synced, or to get more information when a temporary issue prevents automatic syncing.

Over on Android, the ability to insert saved or camera images into Sticky Notes was added in addition to a fix for a cursor glitch.

Here’s the full release notes for Android:

  • Add images to Sticky Notes: Insert images from your device or directly from your camera.
  • Fixed a typing issue where the cursor would occasionally jump after using auto-correct.

OneNote is Microsoft’s free note-taking app that’s available on iOS, Android, web, Mac, and Windows 10. All data can sync between the different versions via the cloud and the app frequently receives updates that add more functionality and use cases.
