So all you need is your standard iCloud/Apple ID to get Reminders to sync across devices (iPhone and iMac in my case). So why am I forced to create a me.com email address to get Notes to sync across these same two devices? Also, what happens when you turn on Mail in iCloud? Does that just sync the me.com emails? I use a gmail account in Apple Mail on both devices so I have no use for another email account, but I'd like Notes to sync. What do I do?
