    Not according to Apple

    Sync Notes

    Never leave a note behind. Now you can sync all the notes you write on your iPhone back to your Mac or PC.

    Found Here: Apple - iPhone - New features in the iPhone 3.0 Software Update.

    Maybe I stand corrected. When 3.0 was announced there was no mention of PC sync.

    There must be someone on here that has 3.0 that can see how it works...

    And the definitive answer is: YES. With 3.0 you can sync notes to Outlook.

    It would be nice to have some other sync options on a pc (I go way out of my way to not use Outlook).

    Big caveat there though. If your Outlook is connected to an Exchange Server (i.e. your corporate main brain) then MobileMe can't/won't sync. I'm not sure if the inability of MobileMe to do it is from lack of ability to make it work or fear of Microsoft.

    And Outlook notes are terrible. Thanks, but no thanks...I'll just stick with Evernote!

    I like Omnifocus (suits my ADD / list mania)

    But I am disappointed to hear that they aren't bringing new OS 3.0 goodies to the table..

    Is there much scope for notes and task managers to make use of OS 3.0 and all the new API / 'hooks'?

    Will Evernote get some new "functionality love"? Or is it a case of just business as usual...?

    Thanks comrades..

    I just installed the 3.0 update. Notes Sync was #2 on my reasons to upgrade, right after Cut/Paste. I can tell you that Notes Sync does NOT work. At least not on PC.

    From what I can see you can only sync notes if you're plugged in to iTunes, but MobileMe doesn't even HAVE a notes section!

    notes sync to outlook was something I was eager to get with 3.0.
    It does work, but it's not quite intuitive.
    I thought it would sync to my notes folder in outlook, but it actually syncs to a new 'handheld synchronization' notes folder in outlook.
    Don't know why it doesn't sync to the main notes folder, but I moved my notes around and now have them on the iphone.

    It's not a push sync? Oh, that's some cheap BS right there.

    I don't think it's push sync, you have to do it thru itunes, and it syncs as you connect it to the PC

    Can any Mac users tell me where my iphone's notes are after I sync? I've synced my iphone applications and am unable to find where on earth my notes are on my Mac. I feel like a dummy but they gave no information on the apple site and I see no place in Mac mail to find notes, only create a new note. Thank you!

    You need to check the box in iTunes to sync your notes (info tab) and they will be synced with Mac Mail.

    I never really use the notes app. Never had a real need. I would never remember to look there... maybe it's a habit I would have to get in to.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to do the note sync over exhange or does it have to be an iTunes sync?

    It has to be iTunes sync. There's a 3rd party app that will do notes and task list but I don't remember the name off the top of my head.
