iPad iPhone




■ Notes —This app (shown in Figure I.8) has been redesigned, giving it a

plethora of new note-taking and information gathering features that make

it easy to create lists, type text into the app, add photos, and gather content

in one place that you collect from the Internet or other apps. Tap on the new

Draw icon that appears in the top-right corner of the virtual keyboard, and

a brand new set of onscreen writing and drawing tools becomes available,

allowing you to handwrite, draw, or sketch content on your iPhone or iPad’s

screen using your finger or a stylus. You can also use these tools to annotate

typed text. As always, all your Notes sync with your other iOS mobile devices

and Macs via iCloud, and when you tap the Share icon, it’s possible to share

specific notes with other people via text message, email, or certain social networks

if you have the apps for them installed.



Figure I.8

The redesigned Notes app is now a full-featured note-taking tool that enables you to type content,

import photos, and/or handwrite/draw on your mobile device’s screen.

■ Maps —In addition to being more accurate than ever before, the newly

enhanced Maps app now includes public transit information for many major

U.S. cities, as well as cities abroad. The new Nearby feature enables you to

quickly locate businesses and points of interest simply by tapping on a category

icon, such as Food, Drinks, Shopping, Travel, Services, Fun, Health, or

Transport. As always, you can also enter a business name (or point of interest)

directly into the app’s Search field.
