Hi.

My notes in the Note app keep disappearing. Whether I make them on my Mac, iPhone or iPad. It eventually disappears for some reason. Also duplicates are showing up.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Cheers

This has happened to me a lot, mostly duplicates getting created with an older version of a note. It's still buggy, I can't say I have a lot of confidence in iCloud storing my data yet to be honest!

The OS X Notes app is farcical to point of being unusable. I've given it a very fair innings, and in doing so have lost dozens of notes and edits along with duplicated notes and deleted notes re-appearing. If you've lost something important then it's possible to recover lost information, but it involves a degree of knobbing about. Otherwise I'd just steer clear of the whole shambles and use something else. Evernote is pretty good.

That's a good idea. Since I started losing some info I wanted, I have stopped using it. I'll give Evernote a try.

I wish I had known about the shaky nature of Notes.
I spent most of today organising some very critical data and putting it all in Notes.
Unfortunately the whole folder that I was working on today with several large notes has disappeared and vanished.
Notes did act up a bit in the past, but I didn't realise that Notes would be such a piece of s(*&^ty software.
I am so disappointed, upset and mad for all the time and the data I have lost!
I wish there was a way to recover the data.
Apple should not put out such piece of crap software without testing and release it only when they are bug free.
There is a good reason I have moved from the Windows world to Ma, but not for this!
If I hav to check and test every piece of software I use on the Mac, what is the point?

"Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it's this veneer — that the designers are handed this box and told, 'Make it look good!' That's not what we think design is. It's not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." - Steve Jobs
Some App this Notes, particularly on how it works . . .!
