    I thought it might be easier to make one general topic instead of spamming the board so ....


    Is there anyway to have the notes app share between two devices like calendar? Like for instance my wife adds something to her Christmas list and it syncs to my iPhone.

    Also is there a way to directly access an app from the lock screen? For example. I get a text and the alert pops up, can it be set up to go directly into iMessage on unlock? I am using touch I'd btw.

    One last thing. Regarding usage. Is there an app that will let me know what apps in particular are draining my battery/causing wake locks etc and also desperate the screen on time?

    Sorry, I'm converting from about 5 years of frustration with android so these might not be my only questions. 😜

    Yes. the iCloud syncing allows for Notes to sync between devices as well as your Macs (and Windows via the iCloud control panel).

    If you have the iMessage alerts on your lock screen, then yes. However, you cannot add apps to your lock screen in the sense that the camera app is there, for example.

    Not that I know of.

    Hello Danzoman welcome to iMore!!!

    Let's answer some of those Questions:

    Is there anyway to have the notes app share between two devices like calendar? Like for instance my wife adds something to her Christmas list and it syncs to my iPhone.
    For Notes I think Evernote is the platform of choice, it supports all the major platforms and syncs flawlessly ... Did I mention it's free?

    Also is there a way to directly access an app from the lock screen? For example. I get a text and the alert pops up, can it be set up to go directly into iMessage on unlock? I am using touch I'd btw.
    If you swipe the notification when you unlock it will take you directly into the app that sent the notification

    One last thing. Regarding usage. Is there an app that will let me know what apps in particular are draining my battery/causing wake locks etc and also desperate the screen on time?
    Best part about iOS is that it is more sandboxed than Android, you won't need to hunt down wake locks etc, for me I just trust the system and have no issues, that's the beauty of iOS 99% it just works ;-)

    Again welcome to iMore!

    For something like a Christmas list, I recommend using the stock Reminders app because you can create shareable lists. A reminder doesn't have to have a due date or location associated with it.

    I second the Evernote suggestion if the stock app isn't doing it for you or if the wife is on another platform. It is solid. Other choices would be Wunderlist or Google Drive. Wunderlist is a little ugly and can be clunky at times but works well for shared lists. Drive is...Drive. It works well anywhere but in this case you have a blank canvas you have to work with and make your own.

    First of all thanks for the warm welcome. iOS is by nature supposed to be simplistic and I fear some of my questions might have been repetitive. One of the reasons I bought my 5s was being tired of flashing half rigged roms so I've seen my share of flaming in the other forums but moving along ...

    I logged into iCloud and set my reminders to be shared with my wife so hopefully that will work out. I think I was off base with the whole wake locks question after reading how ios handles it's apps in memory. I play Tiny Death Star a lot and it's the kind of game that updates in the background on its own I'm just wondering how that works if ios freezes apps in memory. And the lock screen thing I don't know of that will work with the touch ID. When I get a notification you can't swipe directly into it because of the password fail safe. Maybe missing a setting somewhere but if no big deal it's right there on the home screen. Thanks again! I'm sure I'll have more questions soon....

    The swipe of the notification still works when you swipe it, you will get the passcode prompt. Just put your thumb on the TouchId seor and it will fill in the passcode for you and proceed to the app.
