Notes App on Apple Products
Last Updated: Feb 22, 2023

What is the Notes App?

“Notes is the best place to jot down quick thoughts or to save longer notes filled with checklists, images, web links, scanned documents, handwritten notes, or sketches. And with iCloud, it’s easy to keep all your devices in sync, so you’ll always have your notes with you” (Apple).

Why is it Useful?

The Notes app is free with all Apple products! Like the App Store mentioned above, you can do various things with this app. It is so simple and effective, as you can also use folders to keep up with note document organization. Some examples of uses would be:

  • Handwritten notes for class
  • Grocery list 
  • A list of reminders 
  • A place to keep short stories
  • A portable scanned textbook can be kept
  • And, everything is electronic, so no paper is wasted!
