I hope this is the right forum section for this, be kind mods if it's not . I've been using Notes app for around 2 years and want to bulk export the stored notes for inclusion in a database backend for a web based CMS. The simplest method I could find, that didn't involve being forced to use a dfferent third party app with its own proprietary data format, or other equally loathsome exercises in dodgy marketing, was: back up my iPad to my desktop running OSX use iPad / iPhone Backup Extractor to export the raw data from the back up on my desktop, then SQLite Database Browser to create a CSV file of the notes data. [strikethrough] (sorry all, apparently being new to the forums I can't include links for the above apps, anyone interested can pm me for links)[/strikethrough] The next step would be to simply filter out any data I don't need from the CSV file and upload to the the database. So far so groovy. All I really need from the data is the note contents and the creation date, and here I hit a snag - the creation date is stored as a string like this "308718186", which, for the example given, is displayed by Notes as "14 Oct 2010". On OSX I'd simply treat the digits as seconds passed since 1st January 1970 (aka the Unix epoch) to get the date, but far as I can tell this is not the case for iOS. So what is it the internal date format for iOS, anyone?
