Need to get your thoughts down even faster? Big multi-tasker? There’s a badge for that: introducing OneNote badge for Android. The new badge can float anywhere on your screen, even above other apps. Now you can easily browse the web and write down your quick thoughts or copy/paste without having to move between apps, helping you to stay focused.
Launch the badge by pulling down the notification tray and tapping the OneNote badge notification. Then, when you’re done, simply pull the badge to the bottom of your screen to dismiss it. Notes are saved to your Quick Notes section by default, but if you prefer to stay fully organized, don’t worry, you can also choose the notebook and section that you want your notes to go into.
