Only ever written notes directly onto the 'notes' app that was already on iPhone.
But if I want to write a lot, it would be much quicker to write on computer then synch.
But how do I do that? In word? Oh blimey, I'm sure this is v. easy and an embarrassing Q. Can't ask dh as he's at work and he would mercilessly that the p. So can you save me from the dripping scorn and sarcasm and save me bags of time too? Thanks.
If you've got iOS 4 + then you should be able to do that, with older versions I think that Notes is pretty much a closed box.
However even with 4+ it looks pretty limited, if you're on a Mac you can sync your notes with Mail and on a PC with Outlook (if you use it). It should just be a syncing option within iTunes when you connect the iPhone.
However it might actually be best to use something like this about which I've heard good things: www.evernote.com/
Basically your notes are stored out in the cloud and then you download the appropriate app to access it from where you want. So you'd download an iPhone version for your phone and the PC or Mac version for your desktop and they'd all access the same set of notes online.
ok, i am truly a fool. I have the evernote app on my phone. I am sat at my macbook. I don't know how to write a note to get it onto my phone. ok, i will try and find evernote instructions. could have got it all done 10 times over on a bloody pad and paper. sigh. maybe I should apply to return to the 1970's
basically just make sure your phone application is using the same username/password as your macbook one. Then whenever you type notes into Evernote, make sure you either wait til it syncs or hit the sync button.
Then on the phone it should just sync when you have a wifi connection. If you pay then i believe it will sync over 3G as well.
I LOVE evernote; it's awesome. It's fab for travelling - I upload all my flight and hotel info onto it; restaurants to try, places to visit. You can also take photos of things and it will READ the words in the picture. Yes, including handwriting! So I take photos of articles in the paper or magazines, rather than tearing them out and I can search for the stuff in the article later. Or take a photo of a shopping list that I've scribbled out.
