I have never heard of anything like this happen and I use notes all the time. Being a native app you can't delete it so try a reboot and go from there.

I suggest logging into and see what's happening with your notes. If everything on icloud looks ok, then you should try disabling and re-enabling icloud on your device.

Dear All,

This usually happens if there is a "fault notes", in your Notes App (in your iPhone).
Don't ask me how it get there, but it happens.
This is what I did and it works. There is no need for phone reset or any restart.

1) Close all applications on your iPhone.
2) Login to
3) Click on Notes (You might not be able to see any notes now because one of the "faulty notes" is crashing the app).
4) Just click "Create a new note". Create a new note and leave it there. Sign-out.
5) Go back to your iPhone and start the Notes App again.
6) Wallaaa... you can see it working again, like a charm.
