I made a mistake and deleted the standard iPad Notes app that comes with the iPad. I do not want to do a full restore and Notes has been deleted about 10 backups ago. Is there a quick and easy way of reinstalling just this one app? I cannot locate it in my Mobile Apps folder in iTunes and cannot find it in the iTunes iPad apps area.

Yes, this was a dumb mistake, but I am counting on some of the bright minds in this forum to show me the way.

Thanks in advance!

    I don't believe you can delete any of the apps that came with your iPad, so it must still be there. Do you have more than 11 pages of apps? Have you tried to use the Spotlight search to find and launch "Notes"?

    You can always go to Settings > General > Reset, then tap Reset Home Screen Layout. This will place the original app icons back to their original positions, followed by 3rd party apps in alphabetical order.

    Thank you very much for your thoughtful, clear, precise instructions. I found notes tucked away, hidden on the tenth page of apps! As soon as I read your response, I remembered when I first attempted to delete it that it is not allowed. So, I proceeded to hide it--and then forgot where!

    Your assistance is greatly appreciated--you are one of the "bright minds" that make forums so valuable.

    Glad to help. When we get iOS4, you'll be able to put all the apps you don't use (up to 12) into a folder out of the way. We are supposed to see iOS4 in the "Fall".

    Thank you, Jim, for your thoughtful and civil response--others might have stomped on me for being so naive. Any way, I was disappointed that iOS4 did not release for the iPad the same time it did for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I am using it on my iPod Touch and the syncing features are much better, along with the folder features.

    Best Wishes.

    I had some problems with this, too. As I remember, I went into iTunes when syncing with the iPad or iPod Touch and checked/selected Info, Sync Notes Info for the device being synced. Also, make sure on all your devices you want Notes to be synced to, that you select in Settings, Mail, Contacts, Calendar in your MobileMe account make sure that Notes is also selected. I think this will get notes appearing in all your devices. Finally, make sure Notes is selected in your MobileMe Preferences on your desktop/laptop computers.

    I hope this helps.
