    Hmmm. Never thought of that. Would be handy. But, as far as I know, there is no way to make folders in the Notes app - and I couldn't find anything in Cydia, either. Sorry.

    Guess you'll have to use one of the note-taking or filing apps available in the App Store. I use Evernote as it is sync-able between my iPhone, iPad and computer. With it, I can make folders (a.k.a. notebooks) that go as deep in levels as I wish. Of course, there are many other apps, this is just what I use; I keep the Notes app for simple notes...

    If you are syncing your Notes with GMail or iCloud, you can visit those sites on the computer. Your notes are stored in an email folder. Create a subfolder in the main one, and you'll get a subfolder on the iPad.

    If you are using OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) on a Mac, you can create new folders in the OS X version of Notes and they will be synced with the iPad version (providing you have iCloud set up).

    The addition of and features of the Mountain Lion Notes app suggest that these features will be available in iOS 6 on the iPad, but that's just speculation on my part.

    All in all, I still prefer Evernote for most of my note taking needs; but I don't object to Notes getting better. I use it as a kind of scratch pad for more permanent notes in the making.

    See?! Now that's why I love this forum! I get to learn new stuff all the time. :)

    I did not know this and I thank you, twerppoet, for the education. Although I, like you, like Evernote, it still is very nice to learn of yet another thing this "toy" can do.

    Appreciate it.

    Glad to help.

    Just noticed that neither my Gmail nor iCloud Notes folder show up in my OS X Mail app anymore. That's new. Mountain Lion must have redirected them somehow. Probably to keep the confusion down. They are still on the webmail sites though, as described.
