    Go to the App Store and search for Notes. When you find it, tap the cloud icon to re-download it to your iPad. Although this will get back the app itself, any notes in the app would have been deleted when the app was. If your notes were synced through iCloud, you'll get them back when the app is re-installed.

    Thanks for the response - however I am brand new to the iPad 4. Unable to find it in the App Store (there are a few notes but need to know exactly what the app is called and know doubt it is free. Sorry to be a bit ignorant on this matter.

    Here is a direct link to Apple’s Notes app in the App Store.

    Notes by Apple

    As already suggested, you should be able to see the app going to the App Store on your iPad - the image below is from my iPad using the search term 'Notes' - the app circled in blue is the one you want - mine says 'Open' because it is already on my iPad - you may see a cloud for download as stated by Scifan.. - nothing mysterious here - :) Dave

    It is common sense that any apps removed from iPad are recoverable with a little cloud icon on App Store.

    Very true but I deleted my National Lottery app and later downloaded it again now my app has no picture in it and looks very odd on the screen I’ve not been able to sort this one out.
