I have read through previous questions relating to this issue, but don't find any that seem to relate to my problem.


I can scroll down my Notes to a certain point and then they crash.

It seems to be in approximately the same point each time.

There are more notes beyond that point that do not show before the App crashes.


Notes prior to that point can be accessed, and no problems unless I pass the "magic invisible line." when scrolling.

Some of last notes show name of Note, but crash if I try to click on them.


Just started in last 2 days. Have only accessed internet/e-mail through cellular connection (not WiFi) during the time period when I last created a Note and they began crashing.


Lots of Notes! (Too bad Apple doesn't give me a way to sort them--idiotic!)

Is there a number or size limit on Notes?


Have paid iCloud on iPhone, but haven't figured out how to use it yet :-(


System Answers (hope this covers it!)

iPhone 5 iOS 6.1.4

email used on iPhone is gmail

access Outlook Comcast email occassionally

Default save is to phone


Please help. (And recommend a better App to keep my Notes?)


(Apologies if I can't get back to replies immediately--temporarily no reliable internet access except at McD's)


Thank you for any help.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.4

    I had this problem but fixed it by syncing with an Outlook backup and setting it to overwrite. This replaced all of the notes on the iPhone with the notes from Outlook, eliminating the corrupted note that caused the problem

    There are TONS of apps for notes. It depends on your preferences. Evernote will sync across all platforms and devices, including your laptop/desktop if you're using Mac's. (not sure if it does the same with pc's) You can take photos to use with Evernote as well. They update frequently-but not too frequently.....just what's needed. You can organize it however you like.

    i use one called "Catch". Unfortunaely it's not in the app store, web-based, but it's got a beautiful interface and very clean. They have what they call "spaces". I don't know when/if it will be in the app store. It has disadvantages in this regard.

    You can also use the "Reminders" app on your phone. I don't know if you can categorize with this or not, plus when you check off a reminder, it disappears, so it might not be what you're looking for.

    Don't have an answer to your "notes" question as i don't use it....sorry. i'm sure someone will pop in to help! take care!
