I updated to 1.1.3 and paid the "dreaded" $20 but feel it was well worth it. I do wish they had added a to do list but for now the notes feature is very useful. The problem is that I can only add notes on my 16 gig iPod Touch. Cannot firgure out how to write notes via my iMac and iTunes and sync the Touch.

Am I missing something? Has this already been posted? Does anyone have a solution short of hacking the iPod Touch ( ido no want to hack mine).

Thanks for any suggestions.

Look for the iPod to become much much more powerful in the near future

    Unfortunately I do not believe you can add notes on your computer and transfer them to your iPod Touch, nor can you transfer notes from your iPod Touch to your computer.

    If I am incorrect I am sure one of the other forum members will let me know, however this is what I have come to understand from what has been posted here so far. Unfortunately I cannot test this to be sure since I refuse to pay Apple $20 for a system update that should have been free.

    I don't know if this will help you but this is what I have done to solve this problem.
    I email my notes (using the envelope at the bottom of the note page) to my PC at a different email address than the one on my iPod touch. If I need to make a note on my PC to remember something on my touch, I email it to the account I set up for the touch.
    I wish that iTunes had the ability to sync notes like you can sync the calendar but since it doesn't, the above works for me.

    I have in the past e-mailed notes to myself and this is a nice feature. However I would love to be able to write the notes at home then sync my iPod touch so I can access my notes while on the road. A to do list would be very helpful as well. I am quite sure once the SDK is released we will see lots of options like this. Just have to wait a bit more.

    Another nice thing about this is that email can render Word documents!

    If you have a .mac account, you can create notes in Mail and they sync to your Touch.

    Is it possible to sync notes without a .Mac account?
    Is there any way I can copy notes from my iPod Touch to my computer without having to e-mail them to myself?

    Thanks Scott!

    You hit the nail on the head. In fact you can do both notes and to do lists using .mac mail. Never thought of the obvious.

    You solved my problem, thanks

    ...not particularly useful to the vast majority of the world that does not have .Mac accounts...

    You're welcome.
    I wish there were a way to actually have the notes in Mail sync to the Notes app on the Touch, but maybe with the SDK we'll see a better solution.

    Cheers for now...

    It would be great if it could sync to the Task List in Outlook or even directly to Word. Or the easiest way. . .directly into iTunes. So someone out there, please find us a way!!!
