Hi there!


Does anyone know how can I share a note with another icloud account? Not via email or iMessage.

My wife and I would like to have access to the same note and make changes to it and then have it synced between our devices.

We each have our own icloud account.




iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    Notes don't seem to be sharable.  Perhaps in the next update or two they will be.  Reminders used to be sharable until iOS 6 and then they are also not sharable.  Users have indicated that reminder sharing is in the current beta, so perhaps notes sharing will eventually come.

    I've read through the iOS 6 guides, and it doesn't appear that we currently have the ability to share Notes with another iCloud user.  Hopefully this option will come with a future update, and I'd suspect it will work similar to the current functionality for sharing Calendars and Reminders.

    I'm trying to share a note with a few others on my team. Would definitely love to see this functionality added.

    I totally agree that this feature would be very helpful. I know it would be to me and those I want to share with personally.

    Notes are shared and synced by imap mail servers. Any servers, not only icloud. You can create any mail account, say Yahoo. Add that account on your devices and turned notes on. Next time you go to notes app, when you click notes - you will see accounts. If you choose you can click yahoo and anyone who has that account setup will share notes with you. If you choose icloud or on my iphone/ipad you will either have those synced to your icloud account(synced over your own devices only) or just saved to that phone, without replication.


    Usually people come back here and say it is too complicated, but so is the nature of anything with knowing how to use your phone/computer. You learn how or you lose your info, with every transfer from one device to another and iphone life span is not as long as computer's. Good luck.
