Creating Notes

Another organization app that comes with your iPad is the Notes app. Although this one is much more free-form than a Contacts or Calendar app, it can be useful for keeping quick notes or to-do lists.

  1. Tap the Notes icon on your Home screen.

  2. Notes opens up the note you were previously working on. To type, tap on the screen where you want the insertion point, and a keyboard appears.

  3. To start a new note, tap the Compose button at the upper right.
  4. To view a list of all your notes, and to jump to another note, tap the Notes button.

  5. Tap the name of the note you want to switch to.
  6. Tap and type in the Search field to find text inside of notes. If you don’t see the Search field, tap and drag down on the list of notes to reveal it just above the first note in the list.

  7. Turn your iPad to horizontal orientation, and you’ll have a permanent list of notes on the left. In this view, you don’t need to tap Notes, as you did in step 4, to see the list.
  8. Tap the Trash button at the top-right of the screen to delete the note you are viewing.
  9. Tap the Share button at the top-right of the screen to share the note in a number of ways. For instance, you can start a new email message in the Mail app using the contents of the note, or print the note using AirPrint.
