    Anyone else experiencing this? My calendars and reminders are syncing across iOS 7 and Mavericks fine, but for some reason the notes won't sync.

    Was wondering if its an isolated issue or if others are experiencing it.

    I'd quite like to sync notes across devices using iCloud.

    But for the love of God, why do I need to setup an iCloud e-mail address in order to do this? I don't need an iCloud e-mail address for things like Reminders, so what's the big deal with notes?

    I'm not having that issue with Notes, but I can't get it to sync my Exchange account. Oddly, Mail and Calendar use that same account fine, but I get a message in Notes saying it can't connect to the exchange account and asks for the password again. It worked fine in Mountain Lion.

    As far as I know, if you turn on Notes on both devices, it only syncs going forward. Unlike Contacts on iCloud, which prompts to merge, Notes will only sync content created after its enabled.

    Having this issue too. iOS devices work fine for syncing iCloud notes, but Mavericks is having trouble. Other emails are fine, but the iCloud specific isn't working.

    I had un checked it from the settings area, and now it will not re connect.

    I'm having the same problem. Notes sync as expected between all of my iOS devices, but any new notes I create on my Mac (or any previous notes I edit) don't sync at all. I've tried everything I can think of to fix the issue, but to no avail.
