    Can someone tell me why Notes as an app appears on my iPad and when I try to synch with my Mac nothing happens? Surely this is something that should be straight forward and I shouldn't even have to ask this question?

    I did do a search and got no answers.

    Hi there, do you mean the native notes app? If so, I presume this is coming with the next software upgrade as the newest iPhone software has this functionality now.

    You need to check in iTunes under iPad/Info, look down the list of options to "Other" and check the box marked "Sync notes"

    mine syncs just fine, has on my iPhone since iOS 3.0 (i think)

    It worked, seajay thanks

    now why did a Google search not find something so simple.
    thanks again, saved me a lot of work trying to transfer all the notes I made on holiday to my main computer via email or any other long winded method.

    It's on iTunes when you plug your iPad into your computer- that's where you'll see the check box (ie not on the iPad itself) .
