Use Notes on Your iPhone
Edited by Preetam Kaushik, Eng, Shelley
One of the primary reasons to buy a smartphone is so that you can do your daily tasks on the go. Be it writing an article, making a presentation or simply jotting down a beautiful thought you had while looking outside the window. Smartphones are meant to satiate your needs and creativity. And yet, most of us don't make an optimum utilization of our smartphones by ignoring the plethora of apps that are offered to us.
Take the iPhone app 'Notes' for example. This app was introduced in the very first iPhone OS 1.0 way back in June 2007. And over the years, many subtle additions and subtractions have been made to the app. While iPhone 3 enabled you to copy and paste in the app, iPhone 5 allowed you to experiment with the font. Too bad this privilege was taken away from us with an iOS 7 update. But what to do? You gain some, you lose some.
The bottom line is that even though the app is pretty old, many users out there have trouble operating it. So let's take a step by step approach to understand this simple yet fascinating app.

P.S.- Feel like starting a new note? Just press 'Notes' again. Go to the 'New' Note icon. Tap on it and a new note will appear.

Let's face it. Soft copies are dicey. What if your phone betrays you and decides to calmly erase all your data? What if all your notes just vanish into thin air? All that hard work gone just like that. It might be a wise choice to keep a hard copy of all your efforts.
