How to Send Apple Notes App Text as an Email

The Notes app on your Apple iPhone or iPad is a great way to quickly write down something that you won’t forget. It completely replaces the need to carry around a pen and paper.

You may want to write down grocery list items as you think of them, ideas for a project at work, or start an early birthday list for one of your kiddos.

While the Notes app lets you quickly write things, you may want to access all that text later from a computer so you can perfect the formatting and adjust your verbiage.

Most of the options for sharing Notes from your device require you to login to your Cloud from a computer, but there’s also an option to send your Note as plain text as an email. We’ve got steps on how you can use either option down below.
