iOS 8 has brought with it several awesome new features which has made the iPhone a lot more rounded device to use. Two of the most important ones for us here at Techsplurge, have been the revamped Notification Center with individual actions as well as support for widgets and the ability to use the iPhone in synergy with other Apple devices with Continuity and Handoff. However, other than these two major moves, some of the Apple apps especially the Notes app has been improved a fair bit. We have been a fan of the Simplenote app for its cross-platform compatibility, but the improvements, especially the ability to format the text as well as add in images to make the notes a little more detailed and intrinsic.
So, if you have been wondering how to format the text or add images to the notes, there is a fairly simple way of doing just that by following this little tutorial:
In order to format the text do the following
In case you wish to format the text within the Notes application, simply open the Notes application on your iPhone and open a Note that you may have already written in there. Now, simply long press the cursor and select the words that you wish to format in the text. You can select one word or more right within the app. When you have selected the text that you wish to format, you will see a pop-up of sorts on top of the text that would give you the option to Underline, Italic or Bold the text that you have selected. You can select more text in the same note for formatting by simply following the above-stated method.
In order to add pictures to the text do the following
Adding an image to your notes is just as easy as formatting the text. And in fact, the procedure is pretty much the same. All you need to do is, when you are in the Notes app and wish to add the image, take the cursor to that point and long press it for the options to pop up. In the options that pop up, you will notice the option to insert photo. once you tap on that, you will be taken to the gallery of your phone, from where you can add in the images of your choice to the Notes.
It is as simple as that on iOS 8. The above couple of tricks would help you make a better use of the Notes application as well as make your notes, a lot more detailed than it was possible so far.
