Oct 25 Meeting

Using Apple Notes, presented by George Wilde

Apple Notes is a  powerful note taking App preinstalled on every Mac, iPhone and iPad. There are many note Apps available from third parties for Macs, iPhones, and iPads. With the recent significant updates to Apple Notes, the Apple Notes App is one of the most powerful note Apps – and it is free and already installed on your Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

Did you know that you can create a note on an iPhone or iPad from your lock screen without even logging into your iPhone or iPad? You can create handwritten notes with an Apple Pencil, as well as mark up existing notes or make sketches. You can use Siri to dictate notes and you can search for contents of notes using Spotlight. You can format notes and add titles, tables, bulleted lists, images, photos, and videos,. You can input data from other Apps. You can even scan documents and mark them up or add a signature. And best of all, all of your notes are synched through iCloud. Notes taken on a iPhone will be instantly available on your iPad and Mac. You can even encrypt notes so that they are not readable by anyone else. And you can send or share notes with others. 

In this presentation I will tell you how to set up Apple Notes on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac and use Apple Notes to maximum advantage. Bring along your iPhone, iPad, or MacBook to try out the many features yourself. 

The Apple Notes presentation is at the next SBAMUG meeting on October 25th at 8:00 pm. Make a note of it!
