The Complete Guide To Apple Notes : Part 3

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016 by | Filed Under: App Reviews, iOS, Mac OS

In Part 1 of this tip, we learned about Apple Notes and in the second part, we discovered how to format notes and add images.

Today, we’ll check out even more options for making your notes better.

Creating Checklists

Now this is one feature that I personally cannot live without. Many iOS users use the Reminder app for making checklists but in a majority of those cases, we don’t really need a reminder We just want to make a list of things. For example, you might want to make a checklist of different steps involved in baking a cake. You don’t need a reminder to go make the cake, just the steps.

Once again, we will tap on the big ‘plus sign’ button.


This time, we will focus on the first option that has a big check mark on it.


Clicking on that button will turn a line of text into a checklist item. You do not even need to select the text. As long as the cursor is on that particular line, it will be check listed. Or you could select all the text and have multiple checklist items in one go. Incredibly useful! In fact, you won’t realize how handy this little feature is till you start using it for everything.


Attach info from other apps

As with everything else in the Apple universe, Notes ‘talks’ seamlessly with the other apps (especially Apple apps) on your iOS device. You could save a link from Safari, a location from Maps or even the link to a song from Apple Music to Notes.

To share anything to Notes, you simply click the share button in any of the apps and then select the Notes option. You can either choose an existing note to add the information to or create a brand new note with it. The button will be in different locations, depending on the app – but here’s what it looks like.


If you want to add some text from, say a browser window, then simply select the required text and once again, tap the share button and then the Notes icon. Save it to a new note or add it to an existing one, the choice is yours.  You could also save a map or driving directions. There is flawless synchronicity between various apps and Notes and that makes workflow a lot less difficult.


I’ve still got more to tell you about Notes tomorrow. (Hey, I told you this was the complete guide.)  We’ll learn how to share across devices and how to protect your notes from prying eyes.
