New Features Of the Notes App

The Notes app in El Capitan adds all sorts of new features such as checklists, styles and attachments. You can import photos, documents and other files into a note. You can even add web and map links. A new media browser in Notes allows you to view all of the items attached to all of your notes.

    Thanks for the Notes review. Do you know if there is a way to send emails to Notes like I can in Evernote Premium? I often get Tripit flight confirmation emails and would like to just forward that email into the Notes app. A workaround I’m using now is to print the emails as PDF’s and drag into Notes.

      You could just drag and drop the email into a Note. But that only gives you a link. I usually just flag emails like these and look in my Flagged “folder” for them.

    thanks for the notes overview. it’s such a handy feature, i’ve always used notes and calendar instead of reminders, so i’m glad apple gave us more features!
    i’ve run into a problem where notes created on iOS 9.0.2 is no longer syncing w/ OS X. do you know of a work around to force this this?

      Hard to say without a firsthand look. Are you sure those notes are stored in iCloud? They could be notes that are local to your device, or even notes stored with another service, like Google.

    Hi. Is there a way to sort or change order of notes within same folder?. I thought it automatically sorted by title or first line in each note, but it doesn’t.

      It automatically sorts by modified date. So the most recently modified is at the top.

        Before you could sort by title (alfabethic). Is that gone for good or do you think it will return again. It’s a very usable sorting I think.

    Should you have the same features on your ipad?

      More or less. Try it. If you are using iOS 9, you should have checklists, attachments, and also sketching.
