Step #4. Next up, you have three options:

  • Date Created
  • Title

You can choose any of the three options depending on your need. In this test, I’m going to choose Date Created. Now, when you open your Notes app, all of your notes will be sorted by the date when you created them.

Over to you

So, that’s how you can keep your notes in better sync depending on what suits your workflow. The stock Notes app for iOS 11 has got some very useful features. But the ones that have caught my eyes are document scanner, Instant Notes, and Instant Markup. Using the Markup tool, you can make your notes look appealing.

What’s the one feature you have found appreciable in the Notes app and what are the changes you want to see in it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
