Microsoft OneNote has already been free on Windows Store, iOS, and Android for a while. And now it moves even further by removing all price tag from other devices too, going nose-to-nose competition against many other note-taking apps, including the popular ones such as EverNote.
As of now, Microsoft OneNote is a completely free, cross-platform app application not only on Web, Windows, Windows Phone, but also on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Android as well, with a premium version designed specifically for Office 365 and Office 2013 users with features like SharePoint support, version history, Outlook integration and more. What’s more compelling is that all notes you take on any of the devices are sync’d with your Microsoft Account’s OneDrive, formally called SkyDrive, which gives you 7GB of free storage space for free.
You can download OneNote apps directly from the device’s respective App Store, including the Mac version on Mac App Store.
For Windows desktop version, go to OneNote web page, and download from there. Or, you can download both 32-bit and 64-bit version of OneNote directly from below links. Note that, if you have 64-bit of Office installed, you will have to install the 64-bit version of OneNote as well.

I am a big fan of OneNote and have used it to take notes for years but rarely recommend it to anyone else because it costs a lot money to have it. Now, with the price tag being removed, I can finally 100% confidently recommend it to anyone who seriously needs a note-taking app that works with cloud-ready and across-platform, and doesn’t cost a penny.
