    I would like to know if there is any way to make iphone notes program alphabetical rather than by time of post. I hae about 200 subjects and it is time consuming to scroll through them all to find the post i am looking for. I know there are many apps for notes, but do not want to have to reenter all of my notes to make them alphabetical. Any way to do with with existing iphone app, or, if not, is there a new notes app that enable me to transfer my existing notes without retyping them all?

    I believe they are all organized by date. I'm sure you could find an app on the app store comparable to notes that has that feature.

    Unless I'm wrong, I think the whole purpose of Notes is to keep "important reminders" close at hand. Accumulating 200 notes in the iPhone is like adding 200 Post-its on your computer monitor or refrigerator each one becomes less important and more difficult to notice or find, thus defeating the purpose of "reminding."

    I would do what iMuggle suggests and find something else in the App Store to document things (like a list, journal, or notebook app) and use Notes to handle notes.

    When 3.0 is released you can copy and paste all of your 200 notes into another app.

    Evernote is a pretty nice app for notes and you can sort your notes by date or by title and you can also create multiple notebooks for further organization.

    It has replaced notes completely for me. Notes is only designed for basic note taking.

    Same here. The search feature is great. With the latest update, you can even search for text within an audio note.

    I replaced the Notes app with Evernote. I have Evernote on my iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro, and two desktops. It really makes a difference when all notes can be in sync. Plus, the app works fantastic.
