    Here's the situation:

    My better half's cracked and incompatible (by default) iPhone is about to bite the dust.

    She's taken my advice (there's a first) and has decided that an Android phone is the best way to go. Yep, another convert (or "escapee" from the Apple walled-garden, depending on your viewpoint) is about to find out how much more useful these devices can be.

    I've taken all the photos from the iPhone and backed them up to PC.

    Now, how do I get all those (and there are lots) of NOTES off of the iPhone?

    If I can get them off the iPhone, a transfer to the new Android won't be an issue.

    I expected this to be a simple task, but then I'm a long-term Droid user and, as you probably already know, Apple never make anything obvious or useful (unless you have an iMac, iTunes or any of that other garbage).

    PS: for an extra challenge, anyone who can tell me how to do this without a) emailing all of them, as there are LOTS or b) cut-and-paste or c) writing them down on paper and typing them into a proper (open) note taking app will win a few smileys.

    If you can, save them to icloud and then you can access them from your browser with her apple login. Not sure this will work but worth a try.

    If you could tell us what device you have specifically then we can better assist you, because I know Samsung Kies syncs with iTunes pretty flawlessly, but of course you need a Samsung device. :)

    Hi! I would like expand this question. How can I sync iCloud notes to SGS3? Years I had iphone and macbook air(snow leopard) and Notes sync without effort between icloud->iphone->MBA mail. Now I would like to continue use of notes with android SGS3 4.1.2 and I have no idea how.

    Information between iCloud.com and MBA mail 4.6 works just like a thought but real problem is to find Note- app which could communicate either iCloud or mail, HELP

    Last resort is to create .txt-file in to dropbox and edit it, but hey come on it's year 2013...
