    Two weeks later and I still can not find a general Notes app replacement.
    How hard can it be to simply have an app that works exactly the same as Apples default Notes app but with a couple of extras such as different Fonts, Rich Text Formatting (Bold, Italic, Underline, Highlight, etc) and to be able to add a photo with drawing annotations if needed.
    I have tried some of the apps similar to Noteshelf and Notes Plus but they don't allow you to copy a large note and insert it where it flows into several pages.

    For general text entry I have Evernote but two things stop me from using it as the replacement:-
    1. It does not show the titles of your notes to the Left of the main typing area like the Notes app shows.
    2. It only works if you have an Internet connection.

    So, if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to add.

    Thanks.

    The free version of Evernote has some silly monthly upload limit of 60 mob which is quite small in today's world

    D you manage within that ? Or ?

    Well, I think evernote is one of the best for that.

    I have different favorite note apps for different purposes:

    • Evernote for storing and just viewing notes and attachments from emailed documents


    • Notability for taking meeting notes and keeping them organized in categories and subcategories, and annotating meeting handouts as well.

    Notability is also a top favorite because I can quickly switch to handwriting mode when I get tired of onscreen typing.

    Why can't you just use "notes"? It works!

    From some other topic I've read today about Matilde app, it looks great. I can't say that I like all things in this app, but it's free and each note can have photo or video.

    Should we assume you are connected with the developer? I loaded this app, tried to make it work, then deleted it. It is very rudimentary in comparison with many, many others, is awkward to use, and---to boot---is extremely slow.

    A big "unlike" on this one!

    Well, I actually found an App that will allow me to do rich text formatting and add photos/sketches and that is by using the App 'Textillus'.
    It is a great App for this kind of work and the developer is very helpful (I had a need to contact him with an issue which was immediately resolved).
    The app is updated regularly with the latest update just a few days back.
