Save and manage iPhone notes on PC
Many people take notes on their iPhone on a regular basis, not least for keeping important information that can be reviewed at a later time.
Whether you use the iPhone to do business or in private, taking notes on the iPhone is as easy as it gets. Not so if you are trying to backup iPhone notes or transfer them to a new iPhone or iPad. Neither iTunes, nor iCloud provide simple-enough solutions to backup and transfer iPhone notes.
iCloud has improved things, but what if you want to keep your iPhone notes offline, away from third-party servers? And what if only some of your iPhone notes are in iCloud? This is where CopyTrans Contacts comes to the rescue. CopyTrans Contacts is a PC-based utility which allows you to easily transfer, edit and export iPhone notes. Read on and find out how intuitive managing iPhone notes with CopyTrans Contacts is.
