    OneNote now supports handwriting on Android, it works perfectly on my Note 3 with a stylus but it's also supported to just write with your finger on a capacitive screen. Handwriting is searchable in desktop OneNote and Metro OneNote when synced, but so far it doesn't seem like it's searchable on the Android device.

    It sucks that active digitizers aren't supported yet. And the way the Android development moves by MS I don't think that's coming soon

    The active digitizer works with the OneNote beta perfectly fine on my Galaxy Note 3. I've been hoping for this for a very long time.

    Supported in what manner? More available? The Galaxy Note 10.1 has a Wacom digitizer and the Thinkpad Tablet had an N-trig v3 system. The HP 7" 'pro' has some sort of digitizer although I never paid attention to them since there was no real inking to them. Now things have changed....

    I said this in another thread but this has me very tempted to pick up a used Note 2 or Note 3 (though if I decided to do the latter, I'd wait until the next version is announced). You would think that Microsoft would have some incentive to add this stuff to Windows Phone so I wouldn't switch away from my Lumia 1020, so it's ironic that they're the ones tempting me to move to Android.

    I noticed on ESPN the other day office for iPad advertised front and center. Maybe the think sell their software and services first hardware second. Right now there is no hardware on the windows side with a active digitizer. If people get sold on OneNote maybe their next phone will be windows... or their next tablet. Either way they can make money off OneNote.

    Pressure sensitive? "Automatically switch between inking, selecting, typing, and panning"? Can I use it offline and store the .one file locally?
    If all yes, then wacom cintiq companion Hybrid is REALLY attractive.
