    Thank you so much for posting this, all my notes were there and I was very relieved to see them again!!!

    I, too, had this happen today, and am upset that there is no easy way to put this app back on my homescreen!  Come on, Apple!  What happened to user friendly?

    I figured out how to solve the problem.  Go to the app store.  Reinstall the app (it's free). Since everything was backed up in the clouds, I didn't lose a single note. I just wish there could have been an easier way like syncing it from my computer. That wasn't an option on my old phone.

    I Lost some valuable notes, unrecoverable.  I cannot find an answer as to why this happens.  Apple Notes is an unreliable product.  I am trying several apps designed for novel writing.  IJournaler is working very well for me.  They also are very responsive to trouble reports.  Good luck!

    My wife and I both had the same problem.  I think it's Yahoo!   I haven't found anyone with the same problem that isn't using Yahoo for their email account.  By the way you can recover all your Notes by going to Yahoo mail.  Note that there is a folder called NOTES.  They should be there even if you lost them in your IOS system. 


    I'm been using Evernote.  It has some amazing features and allows you to share notes with others.  For example I have a wish list I keep and share the folder with my wife.  Anytime we find something we like we jot it down in Evernote and it shows up in our Wishlist that we can each view.  It even allows Hyperlinks to show them just exactly what it is you want.

    I have the same but my phone just deleted one months worth of notes when I didn't tell it to and when I just went to look at one of my notes it just went as I was looking at it.

    I just lost several notes for no apparent reason, and they aren't in my Yahoo Notes.  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Apple?

    Apple has complicated, a simple app in the iPad Settings.


    If I want to store my notes on only my iPad Air, I have to disassociate

    the Notes App from my mail accounts. Apple associates the Notes app

    with other mail accounts automatically for whatever reason in iOS7.


    Settings/iCloud/Notes - OFF





    iCloud/Notes - OFF

    GMail/Notes - OFF

    Yahoo/Notes - OFF


    (If you do all the above, the below will change to)


    Settings/Notes/Default Account/On My iPad


    I may go back and turn ON Notes to iCloud for backup,

    but I don’t use extensive notes, so it may be a waste.

    I keep the iPad Air regularly backed up/synced to my iMac anyway.


    All the stupid syncing complicated this simple app.
