    Has anyone been able to use this successfully yet? I was just playing around in the Notes app and upon highlighting a word I only get the usual options--Copy, Select All and Define. Am I supposed to enable something somewhere to allow for rich text entry?

    Try copy and pasting some web text/links/paragraphs in there. It'll show up like rich text emails, with linkable buttons and everything.

    Seriously?!? Rich Text Messages?!? Oh please no. I can't believe this is happening. The original beauty of texting was 160 plain characters. Oh I'm getting so old.

    No. NOTES. The notes app, where now putting in links and pictures in Notes actually work.

    Mark some text and the pop-up will have "Cut, Copy, Paste" and a right-arrow to show more options including BIU.

    I figured it out. It doesn't work if you highlight the word first (like I do in the mail app); you have to put the cursor to the right of the word, then "select" then the rest of the options pop up.

    I'm getting the editing options regardless of how I select the word. Double tap it or tap one and hit "select". Both do the trick.
