    Hey guys,

    I have notes sync on in iCloud and also have an a dedicated gmail
    Account only for notes. Also, my default notes account is gmail one.

    My question is, where can I find those notes on my gmail account. Do they go to my email account or get stores in google docs. I coukdnt find in google docs. I want to be able
    To see my notes files on my pc and iPhone simultaneously.

    What are the options??

    They appear as emails. Look at your 'Notes' label.

    Do u have notes on in iCloud? If so they are probably stored there instead of gmail

    Can't they be stored at both the places?? And any way to access notes saved in the cloud from the computer??

    i would think u should be able to load them on your MAC under notes if u are signed into icloud on that machine? I'm not 100% sure as i don't use notes at all....just a thought to try though.

    what u may wanna try is to disable notes on icloud and when it asks u if u want to delete them from your phone make sure to choose NO. Then it should sync up with your gmail notes. This is exactly how i transferred my icloud contacts into gmail. is worth a shot.

    OP was going to ask...what service do you use as your primary email? Also, is your icloud a me.com user id?

    Thanks for the tip! Can I edit my notes written in Notes in Gmail? Right now they just appear as actual emails and all I can do is reply..

    I didn't spend that much time on it, but didn't really see a way to do it. You are probably better off either using Google Keep or some other notes solution (like iCloud notes, or some other more dedicated service like Evernote perhaps).
