If you use OneNote to keep all your digital stuff in one place, you’ll be excited to know that Microsoft’s note-taking app is getting an iOS 8 update today.

Microsoft announced the new update on its official YouTube channel Tuesday with a fun little video showing how you’ll be able to clip bits of the web and share photos from your iPhone to OneNote.

Take a look at it below.

It seems like you’ll need to have iOS 8 to get the new functionality, but once you do, clipping from the web or saving photos to OneNote will be as easy as tapping the share button at the bottom of your Safari or Photos apps, then choosing OneNote from the options there. You’ll be able to import file attachments from Mail app in the same way.

Surely most other note-taking apps like OneNote or Evernote will create this sort of iOS 8 functionality, but it sure is great to see Microsoft first in line.

Microsoft also revealed a new Android Wear version of the OneNote app; we can only hope the company is working on an Apple Watch app as well.

OneNote is available for free for Mac, iPhone and iPad.
